I got shoot in the leg about 4 months ago and i still limp a little and i need to know is there anyway to get rid of the limp excerising? or anything because i want to get into the army. And before anyone asks no i didnt shoot myself an ex friednd of mine was with me shooting when he was loading his gun he pulled the slide back on his.45 with his finger on the trigger and shot me while i was talking to someone about 10 yards away it went right through my leg above the knee through about 8 inches of flesh before exiting the back of my leg

Did it break any bones?

I got shot in the leg and didn't walk for over a year, so be glad you can walk after 4 months.

I don't have a limp today.

GSW's take a long time to heal. It ain't like the movies.

Yup--and sorry to hear it. Occasionally we get guys who are pissed or put out because we are safety nazi's at AR15.com shoots. We do not want to have someone end up injured--or worse--at one of our shoots.

I'm glad you're mostly okay. Obviously it could have been MUCH worse.

I'd exercise as the leg allowed--build (or rebuild) muscle. I'm not knowledgeable about such things, so it may not be good advice. Best wishes.




the funny thing is before we started shooting i went over everything with him and i even corrected him for pointing the gun at me than that happends needless to say he doesnt shoot with or talk to me anymore

I busted up my left leg pretty badly when I was in my 20s , ended up with plates and screws in the repair . The leg was weak for 18 months even with Physical therapy . Then about ten years after that I popped the ACL in that knee and tore the cartilage . The Dr that did that surgery said it was a result of the therapy/Exercise from the previous injury , and that I'm probably looking at total knee replacement in the next 10 years

So I guess my advice is .......... Don't push it too hard trying to get it back 100%
