    Has Anyone Here Ever Been Shot?

    I don't know if this has been asked before but I'm curious if any of you have ever been shot at or suffered a gunshot wound? If so how serious was it?

    Someone pumped five 9mm rounds to a good friend of mine but he survived the incident. This happened in Compton, CA by the way... ........

    No I sure haven't! Don't want to either. Sorry I am of no help but I am kinda glad I am not.

    Sorry to hear about your friend, he is strong to take 5 and pretty much walk away.

    i got hit by a ricochet at a range.

    contrary to what you see in the movies it hurt like hell and bled all over the place.

    cracked my shin bone pretty good and i still have a scar.

    I've still got a bullet in my arm right below the elbow.

    No...it didnt hurt much. It was just numb. Didnt bleed much...just kindof "oozed".

    Suffice it to say that the sumbich that shot me faired much worse...

    Most I have heard say it feels hot. Probably from the friction between the bullet and soft tissues. They feel "weird" and then hot or stinging in the area. Some don't feel anything except blood flowing.

    I am guessing 7.62x39 in Nam. VC had AKs and SKSs among others.

    Well first of all let me say that it ain't all John Wayne cracked it up to be.

    The first two times (1 was an SKS 7.62X39, 2nd a 7.65 from a Skorpion), I was just a tad too busy to worry about it. I felt the tug and knew I'd been hit, but I didn't know by what or how at the time. Firefights are like that. The 3rd time, in LA, was during an attempted burglary while I was working security. The BG hit me with a .38SPL 158gr JHP fired from a Rohm RG-38. I had no idea I had been hit for almost 20 minutes. (bullet entered the upper right thigh). BG had his ticket cancelled that night.

    It isn't the getting hit that bothered me. It was the time it took to heal and the pain I experienced hours and weeks later that I remember.
