    I have never been shot at but when working the "pits" those rifle bullets sound pretty mean when zipping overhead. I would not want to take one just for practice. I really hope he was kidding.

    I'm not one bit embarrassed about the topic I brought up. I thought you're views only differed sightly, now I just think of you as a childish troll. I sincerely feel bad for your kid being brought up by a bully father.

    One man who got shot described the sensation as "exactly like being hit in the chest with a sledgehammer." I wish I could cite the quote, but it's been probably 15-20 years since I read it. It stuck with me, obviously.

    While I've never been shot - I've been shot AT. Bullets make a most peculiar sound when passing's almost like a hiss or crackle. I can't quite describe it, but I'll never forget it.

    Your friend brings up a good point - it probably IS a good idea, once in a while, to take out the earplugs and squeeze off a few rounds; no more than like a magazine or cylinder worth, and definitely NOT in an indoor range. Likewise, it's a good idea to get in some shooting in low light and darkness. And practice shooting with the "weak" hand as well. (I just recently started doing that. The difference is STARTLING. I'll definitely be doing that more.) It can also be beneficial to take an UNLOADED or Blue Gun and practice un-holstering with the weak hand as well.

    Train for the unexpected. And don't shoot yourself.
    Though its pretty obvious we aren't friends, thanks Phillip, for understanding. Some people are just wired poorly.

    Maybe we should ask Gabriel Gifford -- she was shot in the head remember? -- though I don't think she trying to gather experience along that field.

    Uhmn, no offense but that's a bit wild. If you get shot in a self defense situation you will be pumped up on adrenaline and might not even feel the pain at first. You can not recreate that. All you will do is get yourself in a lot of pain and quite possibly loose your CCW license (shooting yourself looks a lot like you might be mentally unstable or tried committing suicide). I would not recommend that.

    If you're really serious about it you should let someone else do it so you'd get more of the real effect.
