I got shot!

Discussion in 'Off Topic [BG]' started by Shoonk, Aug 30, 2003.


  1. ...okay so it was only with a b.b. (sp?) gun, but yeah, it did some serious damage, at a very close range.
    I was in Lisboa, Portugaul for a gymnastics competition, and my team was walking downtown in a very touristy area, and a car drives by and i was standing on the edge of the sidewalk and a man in the passanger seat pulls out a gun, shoots my coach and misses, fires again and hits me.
    Unfortunatley, it was a very hot day, and i was dressed like a mall-doll, so i was in just a short tank top and low rise jeans, leaving the lower part of my stomach completely exposed. the shot hit my ovary, on which i already was having problems with and ruptured a few cysts and actually broke my ovary.
    I'm o.k., it's just weird, my doctor says I probably can't have kids, and I dont want to have surgery to remove it. It's odd, because all I had was a little bruise to show for it, and sometimes i get bad pains in my ovarys where i can't walk, but yeah man. it hurts. so, don't be a menace and dont shoot little canadian gymnasts. a lesson to be learned.

    Sorry to hear.

    I lost half my tooth (top left incisor) after my twin bro shot me with a BB gun and it hit me right on the tip. About 4mm bounced off with the pellet into the depths of my carpet.

    Fortunatly, I found it, whacked it into a cup of milk in the fridge and went to the dentists the day after. They re-glued it bacvk on and its fine to this day (4 years later).

    I'm lucky it didnt hit my eye.

    BB guns are brick.

    Best wishes to a recovery .

    Tyler Hole here. I shot myself point blank in the foot with an Airsoft gun once :) Made my foot bleed...but my dad and his brother and their cousins used to have BB Gun wars all the time. Once, my dad even accidently shot his cousin in the butt with a .22!

    Me and my friends play Airsoft quite a bit, but we make sure we wear enough protective clothing and always wear eye protection :) Safety first after all ;)

    Glad to hear you didn't get SERIOUSLY injured from the BB, but it sucks that it happened. Just look on the bright side...there could of been something worse that happened.

    Sorry to hear, but were you planning on having kids anyway? And what type of loser goes on a drive by with a b b gun. its like **vroom screech , *insert pathetic sound of b b gun* vroom screech*

    Got any pics of where it hit ya?



    I got shot in the foot by a powerful ass rifle BB gun once. Went through my shoe and took off my pinky toe nail. Im ok now though, just the nail is really small. It was my bro who shot me too, woot.

    Since when is losing an ovary not serious?!?


    I'm so sorry to hear about this, Shoonk. I hope everything works out.

    Unfortunately, this world is filled with idiots and jerks who don't think about whom they may hurt.

    I am saddened that:1)they thought it would be cool to be a jerk, 2) they had to shoot someone to prove they are total jerks and, 3) not only did you get hurt, but they caused you pain beyond just pulling a stupid stunt.

    There are good people out there. Though you have every right to be doubtful.
     
  16. Man, sometimes I am glad to be a male. But if I were ever shot in the nut I would pray for instant death.

    I dont think a BB gun could do much more long term damage then losing an ovary.Maybe getting shot in the eye but that is about it.

    Which eye? I'm sure a bb pellet could cause male sterility if it hit the eye I'm thinking of :meh: :eek: :rolleyes:
