Default What does it feel like to get shot with a gun?

Anyone here ever been shot with a gun? What does it feel like? I have always been curious and somewhat tempted to just shot myself in the foot or something to see what it feels like.

Surprisingly, it doesn't hurt a bit. It actually makes you orgasm.

My uncle got shot in his leg (hunting accident) and he didn't even notice for a few seconds. We heard the bang, looked around, and then like, 5-10 seconds later he fell.

After that it was agonizing pain, though.

I assume it's like most other serious injuries- you don't really feel all that much right when it happenes, but after that it'll hurt like hell for a long, long time...
I remember someone I was talking to a long time ago who had been shot said it felt kind of like someone punched him- just felt a hard thud- and he didnt know right away what had even happened.

Same with my grandfather. Although he fell immediately because he was hit with a higher power rifle. He thought had tripped for the first few moments. He was shot in the knee and now at 70 years old he can't really get down on it. It hurts for him to get back up because it makes this horrible grinding and popping noise.

My uncle was lucky enough for it to be in the lower half of his leg. I bet the kneecap would suck...

You stupid or sumthin'?

Dude, there are 26 bones in the human foot, it is a complex mix of muscle, tendons and nerves that basically give you your mobility and balance and you want to shoot a bullet into one of them? This is seriously the dumbest post I've ever seen. Congrats.

Default What does it feel like to get shot with a gun?

Fortunately, I never got shot, but I did catch a piece of shrapnel during a firefight in Vietnam. Surprisingly, that 3/8" piece of steel felt like getting hit by a car. Knocked my feet out from under me and left me wondering WTF just happened? Then it started to burn like a mofo and I realized I had been hit. It was stopped by the bone just above the knee, so it didn't do any major damage, just hurt like hell.
Our corpsman pulled it out, cleaned it as best as he could, dumped sulfa on it, and stitched me up, all without novacaine or morphine. (what are you, a fucking pussy?) We went on with the mission.
Hurt like a sumbitch, but fortunately, it didn't do any major damage and I was able to walk.
A few days later, I had to have the doctor look at it, but by then, there wasn't much he could do except clean it up a bit and replace a couple of stitches that had torn.

Double orgasm if you hit the head.

I wonder what it feels like to hit the ground after jumping off a tall building.
I wonder what it feels like to stick an icepick in my eye.
I wonder what it feels like to drown.
I wonder what it feels like to burn alive.

As soon as I saw the thread title, I was betting on Arcadio, but this one works too.

I was shot when I was a kid. It's not something you would want to experience.

However, the pain was not as intense as having a tooth drilled without novocain - that was the most excruciating pain I have experienced.
