    Does being shot by an idiot count?

    When I was 27, I shot multiply rounds from a 12 ga. at a group of people, and I was trying my best to hit them. Thankfully (or unfortunately depending on your point of view), they were a tad out of range. And of course, Viet Nam doesn't count. I have no idea if I hit anyone, but I'm pretty sure I got a couple of Water Buffaloes.

    I don't ever want to be in a firefight, people get killed in them. My doctor already complains about all my other medical problems he would never stop whining if I got killed.

    Ok.... I'll bite....... why would it matter if they did respond? It's more about the poll...... the info would be nice cause I like stuff like that for comparison, but not required for the poll.

    It's about what I expected so far for stats, and thanks to those who HAVE voted! I'll make my own interpitation of the gathered data and post it in the thread after a maybe two weeks? Thanks again all!
