The off hand shooting thing...I would recommend it...just because it's fun (the pros do it too). heck try to brush your teeth with your off hand, jerk off (there I said it lol), and even write.

Anyways good luck with your elbow...
Thanks man. And again, I think you're right. It definitely feels like an over-extension situation, which would probably explain why I can do normal thing (even bench press and pull ups) with zero pain. I'd guess when I shoot or throw, there's that brief snap of over-extension that creates the issue. I'm just not entirely sure what to do about it.

And I have indeed gone the lefty route before, but never completely at the expense of my righty shot. If my arm gets to the point where I have no choice but to go left, I'm guessing that'd be about the time I'd have to see a doc.
