I know this sounds wierd but i just always wondered how does it feel when you get shot


it takes a strong man to deny whats right in front of him and if the truth is undeniable you create your own

Yes it does sound weird, and a bit stupid.

I think it's pretty obvious how it would feel. Fucking painful.

I'd recommend not trying it.

I don't think you should go and try to get shot. Although I wonder if this is a self harm/suicidal type of thing for you? Other than that, I'm sure it will be different than watching a movie of a fictional character being shot or in a video game. You can always try using this desire to write a piece, or perform in a play.

I myself may be a fountain of absolutely deplorable ideas, but this would top even my charts. Getting shot by a firearm would probably put you into shock and then you'd feel excruciating pain from wherever it was that you had been shot. Then I imagine it would numb out. You'd also bleed a lot if the bullet severs any veins or arteries before it either embeds itself in your muscle or leaves an exit wound. I have no idea why you would want that to happen. There's nothing cool or courageous about getting shot just for the hell of it. That's just foolish.

I believe it is rather painful, considering that damage done do your body's cells generally triggers a pain response.

Sigh.

Teens those days.

Why don't you research about it? There's probably stories on google about people being shot at and their pains.


breathe. it's just a bad day, not a bad life.

I know this has already been said, but I did look at this post and I'm not going to ignore it. I really advise you not to get shot. Also, even though you do say its not because of self harm or suicidal thoughts, people can still take it that way, and saying certain things like this, you could end up in a mental hospital or any hospital to be evaluated. I know, because I've been in those types of situations before. Please be careful.

Re: I want to get shot - August 15th 2016, 05:35 AM

First off, I don't know why anyone would want to be shot. It's not something that should be a goal to have nor is it something to joke about. There are people who are shot or even killed from putting their lives on the line to protect us and I find it very disrespectful to them to even joke about it. I mean no disrespect but my one Tante is in the Armed forces and the other is a Detective, so this is something that strikes me hard.

Now, back to your question. I haven't been shot (thankfully) but my Tante was serving in Afghanistan several years ago when she was shot near the top of her arm. I asked her some questions for a school project for Remembrance Day and what follows is the general summery of what she said it felt like.

She said it was like a painful burning feeling (like you burned yourself with really hot water) and when she looked at her arm, she saw that she was bleeding. But since she was in the midst of conflict and enemy fire, she was able to blocked out the majority of the pain (partially due to adrenaline) but also because it was either keep fighting or risk dying. She did not want to die because she gave in and would of fought to the end. Once the threats was neutralized, she said the pain got worse, like a really, really intense burning feeling and she felt sick from the pain (and light headed) but knew that the bullet just grazed her because of what she saw prior to being shot. She was really lucky because it just grazed her skin and because of that she had to get it cleaned out, stitched up and given antibiotics to prevent infection and painkillers to help with the pain but did not need surgery.
She recovered fully physically (but was fairly sore while she was healing) and it took a lot to recover in a psychological sense from the incident. She went back over in 2013 to assist in training of the ANA and is still a member of the armed forces.

If you are still real curious about what it feels like, then I would suggest googling it but I sure hope you never experience being shot.
