View Full Version : Ghoulish Question: What does being shot feel like?

05-22-2002, 01:34 AM
This is a creepy question, and I apologize in advance, but I was wondering...What does a gunshot wound feel like? Considering the sheer number of people here, the statistics would indicate that someone here would either know firsthand, or know of someone who knows. And I'm not exactly eager to find out myself, I'm just seeking information for my grisly, blood-stained romantic comedy script. (Just kidding about the romantic comedy part)

Well, thanks for your time,

The answers will likely be pretty subjective, so this is probably more of an IMHO than a GQ. There was an IMHO thread on this sujbect from last year: http://boards.straightdope.com/sdmb/showthread.php?threadid=80164 I'll close this thread rather than move it.
