Have you ever been shot?

The thread about the Minnesota guy makes me curious.

In the movies, we see guys take multiple shots and they're still limping around returning fire, and in the next scene they're fine again.

In real life, I know one guy who shot himself in the foot while climbing a fence, and he said that it really, really hurt and he expressed skepticism about the movie people limping around returning fire. However, he wasn't in a fight for his life, so it's possible that his adrenaline wasn't running on overdrive.

So has anyone here been shot? And how did you feel in the first five minutes? First five hours? Next day? I recognize that the outcome may be different if you're shot in different parts of the body, so please note the location of the gunshot if you have a story to tell. Caliber too, if known.

I made the poll multiple choice for those of you who have been shot multiple times.

For the record, I got shot by an arrow once, but it just grazed me. Other than a scrape, I had no problem and could have easily mounted a counterattack had I chosen to do so.

Yep, my brother shot me in the back with an air rifle in 1981. Spent the first three days of summer vacation in the hospital, and I still have the BB embedded in my lung.

As far as how it felt, it was like an extremely bad stomach cramp.

Whoa. You're still carrying the bullet? Cool.

Where's the option for Yes, but if I tell anyone I'll be screwing up my witness protection deal?

knew a guy in school that shot himself in the back of his leg trying to quick-draw w/a .22 pistol.

few months after that, he ruptured a nut trying to hurdle over a chair. he said the nut hurt worse than the bullet.

Now that I think about it, two of my high school classmate shot themselves. One guy shot himself in the arm accidentally, but I never asked him about it because he was the type who might randomly shoot you. The other guy shot himself in the head, and I didn't ask him because...well...you know.

Is this one of those stories where you use someone else as an example for your own experience?

Used to work with a guy that shot himself in the calf with a 9mm and he said that hurt like a son-of-a-bitch, he couldn’t even hobble around on it. Some friends got him to the hospital <7 minutes from the gun shot and he almost bled out in that time.
New a different guy that got shot in the calf with a .22, someone playing around with a rifle that shouldn’t have been holding one, and he said he wasn’t even going to go to the hospital over it until the bullet hole started leaking again an hour later.
Caliber makes a huge difference.
