Shot with a 45-70!

I hyjacked this from another forum I frequent. OUCH!!!

Quote:
This guy and a buddy were sighting their rifles in. One of the guns was leaned up against the 4 wheeler he was standing on. The gun started to fall and I'm not sure if his buddy grabbed it, or something on the bike caught the trigger. Either way, he caught a 325 grain .45-70 round right under the collar bone. I think it goes with out being said, how lucky he is to still be here.

The big hole around his shoulder blade is where the bullet entered and it traveled under his skin and exited right there on his neck, above his spinal cord! Just goes to show that he truly is LUCKY! The ballistic tip mainly just burned the edges of the skin of the wound that you see in the picture. He's getting better & better every day, last night he was even doing push ups!! He's finally able to use his arm again! Somehow it didn't hit anything major and basically ended up being a really bad flesh wound! It is truly a miracle that he is alive and not paralyzed!

That will feel better when it quits hurting.

eh, to me, that doesn't look like a gunshot wound. I'll defer to those who are more experienced, but it doesn't mesh with any photos or anything else I've seen

You ever seen the size of a 45-70? Looks real as hell to me. Just a lucky MF that it traveled just under the skin

seems like with a ballistic tip the exit wound should be bigger.
