    Brutal, but you are alive and still kicking, maybe! I kid, but thanks for sharing the experience. I am sure it hurts you worse than me to look at it.

    I'm sorry to hear that it happened, but also glad to hear that you're doing as well as can be.

    That sends a chill down my spine! Best wishes and heal fast!

    As a side note... I carry my Kimber 1911 .45 cocked & locked. My Ruger Sp101 filled with five but, the ole Glock 26 doesn't get one carried in the chamber unless at a shooting match or practicing. Mr. Murphy and Mr. Klutz are kin folk.

    When looking at the damage I would be telling myself it sure looks better than staring at an amputation stump.

    WOW!!!! small bullets do some big damage. Wish you a fast recovery. That should teach us all that gun safety is paramount.

    Wow. That's as nasty a wound as I've ever seen. I'd call you lucky for not hitting something vital and a badass for being so open about it. Hope you heal well

    Actually that looks like it's going to heal up nicely. But, keep a watchful eye on anybody that is doing your daily wound clean out since you don't want to add a MRSA infection to your existing wound woes as that closes up.
    Glad that you're OK. That was potentially a very bad location because if you would have blown through the artery your story could have had a radically different ending.
    But, I'm certain you already know that.

    Start requesting a high protein shake and drink one or two of those every day. That will help promote some quicker healing.

    Dang!

    Thoughts:
    -Glad you are not more seriously injured, bad enough as is.
    -.357 Sig obviously effective.
    -As you stated, not the guns fault.

    cant help but think, at that range it wouldn't matter if it was .45 or .357. The wounding effect would be roughly the same.

    Wow, I hope it continues to heal well. Thank you for sharing your story. That's the first self-inflicted gsw I've seen before. I'm sure I will always remember that picture as I'm handling my Glock in the future. Glad to hear that it shouldn't effect your mobility given your prior accident which injured the same leg. Best of luck with continuing treatment!

    Thanks for sharing your experience with us. I hope you heal quickly!

    I sure appreciate all the support and sympathy you folks have shown throughout this thread. I confess that when I initially posted, I was a bit concerned that I might catch heck for my mistake, but I should have known this forum is full of very reasonable, intelligent individuals. I'm happy to say that my wound is healing very well, and is closing up nicely. Still hurts, though. I can say with great authority that you definitely never want to get shot. If you do, stay calm, breathe deeply, and concentrate on staying alert and oriented. And, of course, call 911 right away. Thanks, all!
