Have a bachelor party coming up and idea is to go airsoft-gaming. That’s quite common here in the Netherlands, followed by BBQ and pub crawl. For those who haven’t heard of airsoft; it is like paintball with smaller pellets shooting from replica rifles. Looking forward to it but have no idea what to expect given I have never played on a Coumarin derivative (fenprocoumon in my case). I think I’ll catch a couple of bruises and be fine but was wondering if there’s actual experience amongst you. Thanks!

I dont know about airsoft but I have played paintball many many years ago in my 20s and got a few good smacks, I’d play it again tommorow if the opportunity came up warfarin or not, so have fun.
Sorry Im not more help.

Sounds fun! I have played both airsoft and done paintball. The last time was paintball about 5 years ago. That was before my surgery, so I can't help there, but with all the protective head gear and such, I would not hesitate to play again.

followed by BBQ and pub craw
But, be careful with the pub crawl. Haven't you heard? If you have more than one or two drinks it will almost certainly be the end of you if you're on warfarin! 🤣

Says the guy who drank 5 beers while watching the UFC last night. My INR must be about 22 right now and this will probably be my last post.

Naw!! It'll take more than 5 to cause much of a wiggle in your INR.......at least that was my experience and I had a lot of experience in my younger years 🤪.

I keep telling myself that it's ok to keep having an occasional good time and down a few, because I'm in my younger years. :)At what age can we no longer use that excuse? :unsure:
I guess I'll ruminate on that the next time I decide to throw a few back 🤣

Some things need to be handled with care

........it would only take a couple of shots of that stuff (126 proof) and you would be unable to move......much less crawl. I live in Kentucky but I've never heard of that Bourbon brand........must be distilled at midnite up in the hills. Stuff that strong we usually call moonshine, not Bourbon.o_O

its under the Jim Beam brand ...

I buy it now and then, last bottle I bought was in 1999, I bought this one for start of lockdown in 2020

apparently this is the story
In 1988, Booker Noe, Grandson of Jim Beam introduced his own signature bourbon - 'Booker's'- hand-selected and bottled straight from the barrel, uncut and unfiltered. He first created 'Booker's' as a holiday gift for his special friends, but the whiskey was so well received that he decided to make it available to bourbon lovers worldwide.​

I'm with Dick. 126 proof is moonshine in my book. Mad Max moonshine!

Thanks all, for sharing thoughts and experiences, I’ll make sure to post footage of the best of bruises should I catch a couple of nice ones. 😀

I'd be more concerned about falling on my head during the "pub crawl".......have fun!
There were times I was super careful indeed, not exceeding 2 a day. Fortunately, I now know things aren’t as bad and I regularly enjoy my liquor again. To quote my surgeon when I asked him about life on warfarin; “life is for the living”.

i certainly don’t advocate heavy drinking. But, some of the most fun times are celebratory, such as weddings, The thought that one will forever be limited to 2 drinks while on warfarin can be depressing, not to mention completely false.

Went playing airsoft yesterday. Fantastic activity, running, crawling and diving whilst dodging bullets. Awesome, can highly recommend it. Took a couple of hits on the forearms and legs, but nothing to bad on an INR of 2.6 (when I got home after the pubcrawl 😎). 0D03B901-F437-4258-B0FA-4A4479FEA024.jpeg

Interesting the way the "bruising" seems to be at the shock wave and not due to the projectile hit. I don't think I've ever had a bruise like that.

I have about a dozen 😅 they all look the same like this. Right in the centre you can actually spot a couple of tiny vessels sprung but you are right, the look atypical for a bruise. Other Interesting fact, I saw a couple of the others’ bruises not on any Coumadin and some of them are a lot worse than mine.
