    Has anyone here ever been shot? I have.

    Just wondering about your experiences.

    Thanks

    I've never been shot, but back in the early '80s I had a pistol pointed at me, it was a very un-nerving experience to say the least.

    No.

    Shot at once, but I was never sure if it was intentional or if someone was just being irresponsible and we happened to be in the background. Bullets were hitting nearby, and we didn't stick around to find out.

    I would guess that your story was while on duty. Is that the case?

    Same with me. Was on a "drive" for deer in PA years ago and I was on the watch end of the drive. Everyone know well where everyone else will be but that did not stop on A-hole from firing when they knew they were close to the watch. Bullets hitting on the hill a few feet below me but thankfully no hits.

    Needless to say I have never participated in a "drive" again. I tend to hunt mostly on private property of some people I know.

    I've had them pass close enough to hear them and that's too close.
    No never been shot.

    In my younger days as a paramedic we wound up driving through the cross fire of a pimp "protecting" his interests. Never been more scared in my life! Fortunately, he missed everyone (or we would've been called back to clean up his mess)!

    Never been hit by a bullet, but I've had the discomfort of hearing thenm 'whiz' past my ears. :mad: Very unforgettable sound.

    I have been hit in the chest by a roman candle that backfired tho. Not fun at all. :(

    I'm not sure which I have more for you fellows, admiration or confusion. Not trying to prod, but if I was shot and lived to tell, I think I might be rather inclined to tell. :)

    But on the other hand, I can understand not wanting to relive the circumstances.
