I was shooting with a friend who was shooting a ruger .22 revolver with interchangeable cylinders. Can't remember what it was called... Security six?

Anyways the story goes.... The cylinder ended up getting out of time and one of the bullets didnt go down the barrel but instead ended up fragmenting out the side and hitting me in the back... I thought he shot me.

So I turned around, possibly to gun down a close a friend (just kidding) and I realized it was an accident.. It hurt like hell but I got over it and had a laugh.

I was curious what accidental injuries you guys have had :)

My friends dad shot himself witha .357 I'm the foot once.

I'm typing all this on the mobile app and can't see what I'm typing so if there are misspellingsi apologize

Broke my left leg, three times. Car slipped off a tow dolly while loading it, bad tackle while playing football, and a near fatal car wreck (other guy blew .31, I was sober) broke most of the bones in the left side of my body.
Shot in right leg, twice. Once with a crossbow bolt, once with a .38 special via a ricochet.
had an F-250 fall off the jack stands while changing out the front axle. Broken ribs, collar bone, and shoulder blade on my left side.
Dropped a motorcycle ( my mom's XS1100 Yamaha) when the front brake locked up solid while travelling at 60 MPH. All I got from that was a sprained knee and ankle, and one hell of a case of road rash. Not the first time. have been riding since I was 6, started out on a YZ50 Yamaha.
Rolled my truck while going through my divorce. Truck was D.O.A., I didn't even get a scratch.
Notched both my right and left thumbs by not using the proper technique the first couple of times I fired a semi-auto pistol.
My wife's last dog bit me in the face, less than an inch from my right eye. 15 sutures, and an interesting scar later, the dog is now at my friend's shop as a guard dog
Had a co-worker nail my left hand to a pallet when I worked in the shipping department of a local factory.
Several other cuts bruises and apbrasions without a worthwhile story behind them. I used to work as a bouncer at a local nightclub.

So far, I have only used up 3 of my lives. 6 still left.:D

:pALL of my injuries have been accidental. Did not plan for any of them.

I've had too many injuries. Some were accidental, some were intentional on the part of others. But I've never had an accidental or negligent discharge or an injury due to a firearm in my own hand. I've been bit by a German Shepard, mule-kicked in the chest by a horse, bit by a brown recluse spider, shot by a Viet Cong, blown up by an IED, hit by a drunk driver...

The longer you live the more scars you get.

Oddly enough, of all my booboos over the years, i'm having trouble remembering any that were firearms-related. Cars, boats, motorbikes, alcohol, and women seem to cause MANY more injuries to me.

Axxe55 04-27-2013 10:14 PM

about the only firearm related injuries i have ever had, came from working on them. cuts, bruises, smashed fingers and thumbs and such.

but i have plenty of scars from many other activities!:p

The worst accidental injury I have suffered was grabbing a pit viper from the wrong end. Several days of ICU followed.

Garadex 04-28-2013 12:03 AM

Long list for me. Thank God GM and mom's marketing firm carried good insurance.

Broke my right leg on my first bike when six
Broke jaw crashing bike on a whole made ramp at 10
Broke ankle and cracked shoulder going down a hill on my way to school on the same bike going around a turn at 11 or 12
Dislocated left wrist getting bucked off a horse when about 13ish

Did good for a while then got a little older and dumber
Broke finger with a hammer
Broke shoulder going down a water slide head first and slamming into the bottom

Started road racing sport bikes and over the corse of seven years broke multiple fingers, multiple ribs, right shoulder, both ankles, tail bone, and hairline fractured hip

Broke left wrist again getting bucked off of a horse yet again

And the last one about 5 yerars ago was a wreck on the street (the one time I road without a helmet) broken shoulder, two ribs, and fractured skall.

The ugliest one
