When I was in the Army, I knew a LOT of people who'd been shot, blown up too. I knew a couple who'd been on the Bataan Death March, so you can add tortured.

My best friend from college got shot in the back of the leg with a .22 in a hunting accident. Didn't keep him from passing Airborne and Ranger schools.

Unless you were a pregnant female who couldn't be talked into an abortion, I think you'd have been safe...

Yes, but all during military service

When I was young and stupid me and my buddy were shooting late night at a 24 hour private indoor range and we went down range and were firing within a few feet of the backstop. I got hit by a fragment of a 357 jacketed head on my cheek. Took a while to get it to stop bleeding. A few weeks later I noticed a lump and went to the doctor. Said it was just scar tissue forming. Fast forward about another two years and laying on the beach during my honeymoon and my wife says I have something shiny on my face and pulls out the copper piece! Took two years to work to the surface!

My uncle had a piece of shrapnel received during WW2 work out of his neck in the late 50's.

About 15 years ago I was practicing with my 1911 at a 50 foot indoor club range.
A guy shooting with his lady friend two lanes to my left (we were the only people in the range at the time) suddenly yelped and said, "What the hell!"
I stopped shooting, safed my gun and went over to see what the problems was.
Lying by his foot was a 230 grain, FMJ, .45 slug with a flat spot on it's nose.
One of my rounds (on the paper BTW) had bounced nearly straight back and hit him on his jeans covered shin.
No blood, bruise probably, I kept the slug as a memento for quite some time.

If you aren't part of the solution, then you obviously weren't properly dissolved.

I’ve been the recipient of that very gift before. Never a 9mm, twice from a .45 - both times the slug was still too hot to hold comfortably.
