in 2005, my 16 year old son had a mishap with his deer rifle and shot me in the leg.
the gun was a marlin lever action .357 rifle and it nearly took my leg off. I now have a steel rod for a femur.

Hey Beenshot. Love the name. Me too. Was shot by a .270 back in 1987 while fighting a fire. Loaded rifle under a bed went off in the flames.nearly blew my leg completely off right above he knee. After two months in the hospital, two years of not walking, and more than my share of rehab, I still have my leg with a bunch of hardware in there also. Doesn't work all the best but at least it's still hanging on. No chance of getting through any airport with out a pat down now! Good luck and stay safe and welcome to the forums.

WELCOME!!

I'm glad you found your way here. I hope I never have to say "I've been shot". I'm glad your doing okay.
