    WhoooWeee!

    Sure does give a person pause to think.

    I plan on using your posted photo in the Basic Pistol Course, if you will give me your permission.

    Would be very interested in hearing about what took place after the accident...did YOU call for the ambulance? The police? The paperwork involved?

    Get well soon, and back to the range!

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!
    I don't know about the rest, but I thought you'd been punished enough at your own hands.

    It is standard surgical practice to allow "dirty" wounds to heal in an open fashion or by what is referred to as "secondary intention". The healing process occurs from the bottom of the wound upward, with devitalized, injured tissue being sloughed off in the process. Results are usually much better than you would ever expect, and with good wound care, infection rates are much lower.

    Aside from all the medical talk, hope you heal well and uneventfully. From the looks of the anatomy, your were indeed very fortunate, as the result could have been far worse. Good luck and stay safe.

Still, I've gone back to my trusty .45 ACP 1911s, since I'm obviously more familiar with that operating system than the Glock Oh, and yes, it really hurts to get shot! (That's almost always the first question I get LOL)

    Big Ray, thanks for posting this photo. A picture is worth a thousand words and you hopefully have made everyone pause and think about the unthinkable. You have given all of us in the group a true teachable moment. Best of luck.

    I admire your willingness to talk about this as difficult as this incident has been for you. It's good to hear that the healing process is continuing. Best of luck to you!

    I'm glad he didn't because he might have uploaded pictures of that still!

    Curious how the OP is holding up and if he has made a full recovery?

    Just last week my trauma surgeon proclaimed me healed. At least, the wound has closed completely. Now I'm busy trying to build up strength in that leg at our local wellness center. The main problem I'm going to have to contend with is numbness from my hip joint down to just below my knee. Otherwise, I'm doing quite well, and will soon be getting my coach's certification for high school trapshooting.

    Wow, that is good news (not the numbness part) that you are recovering. Glad you are doing well, here's to continued recovery. :)
