    I've been shot with a slug gun 4 times,

    not intentionally though, and I was never seriously injured from it, the first time my friend shot at a 44 gallon drum of water and it rebounded and hit me in the knee, hurt like a ***** but was dying of laughter

    It Was An Accident

    I was 13. I was hanging out with some friends in the parking lot. One of the guys had a gun. It was his father's, a revolver, a .22 I think. He was fooling around with it, freaking out all us girls and enjoying the looks on our faces when he pointed it us. I got mad at him, told...

    The first time one of my friends tried cocaine,

    he thought it would be funny to fire a 9mm through my forearm. Funny thing is, I happened to be sober that morning(very rare for me) and put a bullet through his knee and and another bullet through his brother's shoulder. Neither one of those idiots remember how they got shot.

    I Shot Myself By Accident, Uh, Sort Of

    I was pulling my .22 Luger out of the holster on my belt when I accidentally pulled the trigger and the action swung back, taking a huge chunk out of my upper leg while the bullet ripped down my lower leg into my foot. That was the end of me walking...

    Can't Outrun Bullets

    A terrible sound of a fired bullet woke me up, followed by a pitiful cry.  It was a piercing cry of horrendous pain: I have never heard one with this much pain before or after this moment.  Was it real or just my dream? My mind tried to wrap around what the sound was? Did the...

    A Man Shot Me

    About a year ago, I was with my grandmother and a man shot through my window. The bullet went through two windows, a tv, a wall, another wall, and a shed in the back yard. It turned out that he used a military rifle with metal jackets. Bullet fragments are still in my head. No...

    I was shot in 1986. Coworker was playing with

    an "unloaded" gun. I bled out as we got to the hospital. I was clinically dead for four and a half minutes. I have never felt a feeling of peace like that before in my life. There was no fear or pain, just a perfect sense of peace. Had the out of body experience. I wasn't...

    I'm in the military and I have been shot in the

    lower right of my back. It is something that people shouldn't joke about like I've seen. It's very serious. How would you like it if you were shot?

    Does This Count?

    I have been shot, but by an Air Rifle. I don't know if that counts in this group. I've always gotten on better with men than with women and when I was 16, most of my male friends were going through a stage where they all adored guns. To this day, they still do, though it's...
