    Sorry to see this happen to anyone! Please be advised that it does a lot more damage to a chest cavity! .357 Sig is a stopper and I'm sorry to see you abandon the round. You may wish to try another pistol! My HK P2000 SK LEMs are great, but M & P as well as Sig or Springfield make theirs in 357 Sig!

    Wow, a few more inches to the left and you would have shot your junk off. That is an ugly wound.
    English is my second language, I have been told my use of it is harsh, apologies if this is the matter.

    So he was pointing his weapon at someone? No matter what the trigger needs to be pulled. Some how hung up on a shirt or whatever. Not going to fire. The OP mad an error by not securing the gun. Doesn't matter what kind it is. Glad that he's okay.

    Glocks and similar pistols that have no safety with such an easy trigger pull makes ND and AD a lot easier to occur. The guns are safe until handled by humans. No human is perfect and capable of making a mistake. A bullet can't be taken back once the weapon is fired...I have a G26 and love it but I handle it like a set mousetrap. One reason smith made the sigma with the heavy trigger to minick the revolver and to be safer as a SD weapon....it is what it is....we had an instructor that taught fire arms safety for years and was very safe. One day in a classroom setting he had a ND. It happens...be careful or u could surely be dead.
    The police are not there to protect you from crime, they are there to arrest the guy after the crime has been committed, assuming they find him. It is your responsibility to protect yourself and your family.

    I don't think he's abandoning the round so much as the platform. Correct me if I'm misunderstanding OP.

    To answer a number of very good questions you folks have posed:
    First, I'd call this an ND instead of an AD. Even thought I was asleep at the time and I had left mistakenly left the weapon on the arm of the recliner I was in, I must have reached for the gun or placed my hand on the trigger in some way so the gun could discharge. I'm still a big fan of Glocks — still have my G35 for 3-gun — but I have been using the 1911 platform for about 35 years.
    As for abandoning the round, as soon as they come out with a 1911 in .357 SIG, I'll be the first in line! LOL
    Now, about the healing process: Because the bullet was fired point-blank and went through a blanket and a pair of short pants before hitting my thigh, the injury was considered a "dirty wound" due to foreign material and powder, etc., entering the wound cavity. My surgery was basically to debride (clean out debris) the wound. Dirty wounds (including most GSWs) are then left open so that they can "drain," thus cleaning out the wound. They also need to heal from the inside out, which explains the wound opening up so much. The two stitches shown in the original photo were placed just to keep the wound somewhat protected initially, but they were also expected to pop eventually, allowing the wound to open up. As the wound heals from the inside out, the inside swells, pushing the wound more open. It also fills with clotted blood about the same consistency as jelly, which must be cleaned out every day, which is not a very pleasant process as you can imagine. A very large area around the wound also swells up tremendously due to a very large subdural hematoma (bad bruising), which eventually is absorbed by the surrounding tissue. For roughly the first three weeks after the injury, I was bleeding through three layers of ABDs (about 3/4" thick pads), a thick wrapping of gauze bandage over the pads, plus a long ACE bandage wrapped over the top twice a day. More recently, it's been leaking through about once a day, and will continue to do so for probably another month or two (until the wound eventually closes).
    I was lucky in that the bullet missed my femoral artery by about an inch, but it did pretty much shred (and literally blow out) a pretty large portion of muscle tissue and nerves in my upper thigh. Ironically, that won't actually make much difference in my ability to walk, since just under three years ago the same leg (right) was literally crushed when a pickup darted in front of my motorcycle as I was riding down the highway at 60 mph. In other words, my leg was already mostly titanium from the ankle to my hip. Thankfully, none of that hardware was hit. In the long run, I'll probably have a huge scar and depression at the wound site, as well as nerve problems in the rest of my leg. But I'll still be kicking and breathing (and shooting) for a long time to come.

    Yes, a ND or AD can happen to anyone these days.

    As for a 1911 in .357 SIG, there should be some of the new SIG 1911s out by now.

    Do you realize how many times you can get seriously killed in that 7-15 seconds? Surely you jest!

    Once agan. I thank you for sharing. It takes a lot to swallow your pride and admit you were being neglegent and that is why the gun fired. Too often... People just say the gun went off giving many people the idea guns go off by themselves which we know isn't the case almost always! I wish you the very best in your recovery and look forward to more of your posts in the future.

    Dang man. Hope the recovery process continues without any hiccups. I personally carry (and love) the. 357sig round.
