Never shot, but shot at twice. Once, years ago working for a campus police, some asshat stuck a pistol out a third story apartment window and starting taking potshots at the student parking lot while I was patrolling it. Years later working for the City, we were on the scene of a shooting in one of the worse neighborhoods with a news team in tow of the medics. We were there just after the ambulance left and someone starting shooting at us. We figured it a gang annitiation. Nobody hit, fortunately. Definately a pucker factor on both occurrances.

13 ricochets. 12 while conducting training. All stopped by body armor. Once in a pistol match, ROing. Penetrated upper left arm about 1/4". Pulled it out and kept going. Ruined a brand new shirt, damnit!

To the OP;
How badly do you need to find a subject to post about?
It's just weird.

Some folks are curious, nothing wrong with that. Those that feel like taking about it, can, and those that don't, don't have to. There are at least two membes I know have been shot and haven't commented. It don't matter.

The related question, "Have you ever shot anybody?" is the question that really ought not be asked. This one is interesting, though.

That might hit a cord with the true people. Lure the mall Nina's out, I hope I never have to shoot anyone.

I think that everyone here can agree that as much as we like guns we all hope that we never have to use them against another person.

That's not a question that bothers me, although at least I get to choose who, when, and how to answer!
Yes, I have, and no, I don't lose sleep over it.
I consider myself fortunate in that it happened in combat operations. I've never even had to draw ON A PERSON as a civilian. I did shoot a rabid raccoon once while I was taking out the trash.

I respect that, my father has as a sharpshooter. I don't ask him about it. He has been drinking before and told me some. He has his demons. I'll leave it at that.
