    yes, when 16yrs. old, messing around w/friends out in woods. dumb kids. a 22lr.round went right by my ear because someone did not see what was in the background from about 300 feet away...way too close

    Speaking of BB guns reminds me of training in Jungle Warfare School in 1967. This was before paint ball. With only normal field clothing and a face shield, we hunted and shot each other with BB guns. During the course I was shot 8 times in the dense foliage, but pretended to have not been hit in order to obtain a higher course score. Most, but not all, let out a yelp when hit.

    Twice..once by a security guard when I was 15 and once by a sniper when I was parking my taxi cab on W 55th Street between 10th and 11th Avenue.
    All shots missed.

    A lot of small arms fire from the shore line. It got where we could hear the round before the report. Very little armour on the Cutters.

    I have had thousands of rounds slung at me: mostly AK47s, rockets and mortars. By the end of my VN tour I'd got pretty good at judging fire direction by the sound of the enemy weapon. It's not fun getting shot at, but you'd be surprised how much you can get shot at and not get hit.
