Too many to count!


As far as firearms go:

Been hit by a ricochet .22, but thankfully it was an aguila and I was wearing jeans, so it didn't penetrate but it sure did sting like hell.

ALMOST got hit by another .22 ricochet, and this one would've done some serious damage. I heard it hit the metal silhouette target, then I heard it zip right past my head, and hit my shed behind me.

Had a 209 primer explode in my face. Not fun. No injuries, but it took a couple days to regain hearing.

I've cut my hand multiple times on my FIE .22, until I took a dremel to that thing.

I've also caught on fire, pyrotechnic wise. X3

I've also accidentally stabbed myself multiple times. Not too deep. Deepest was about a half inch.

Never been shot thankfully. Been pelted plenty dove hunting tho.

Pretty lucky from what I've read.

Pinched nerves in my neck and shoulders, rotor cuffs are bad in both shoulders, impengment(spelling) in both, not as bad on left.
Dislocated both shoulders.
Thanks football lol.


Broke most of the ribs down my left side. Horse threw me into a fence.

Various cuts blah blah blah. Two minor stab wounds. Little ones, one by friebd that was an accident. Other by me, knife unlocked in pocket. Opened up. Eye opener lol.

Split my wig when I was little nice scar there. Had most fingers dislocated.

Caught on fire once while fueling a car. That was exciting.

Nope. I just continued fueling the car. It was during a pit stop in the 24 Hours of Daytona back in 1989. I was the fuel man, the fuel port was located directly over the red hot exhaust outlet, the 3" fuel hose puked about a half gallon on me when I put it in the car, then it dripped down the car onto the exhaust and "WOOF!" I was on fire. If I had pulled out it might have gotten worse. There were 2 guys with fire extinguishers trained on me and they put it out pretty quick while I finished filling the car. I got some 2nd degree burns on my neck where the firesuit didn't cover me (I should have had a balaclava on, but didn't).

I just went to a photo of the car I worked on, The exhaust is a little aft of the fuel port. I'll try to post a pic or link to a pic.
