Today’s edition of Best Gore Members Rock is brought exclusively to you by Best Gore member @englishmn who accidentally shot himself through both his ankles:
I knocked a revolver down Friday evening from a shelf in safe, and it fired when it landed, putting a bullet through both my ankles. It didn’t hurt at first, but I fell over because it shattered the heel and detached tendon on exit ankle and fractured fibula on entrance ankle.
They tell me no permanent damage, but the better looking ankle shattered the heel and the piece of heel bone the tendon attaches to broke off and had to be screwed back. It cannot have any weight on it for 3 months. The nasty looking ankle was mostly soft tissue damage and fractured fibula. It’s in much better shape.
I’m just happy the gun didn’t land pointing upwards.
Always wanted to post something on here but not necessarily myself. Enjoy!
Thans a lot for the share, @englishmn. That truly sucks, but by the sound of it, you will still be mobile once it all heals up. I wish you all the best in the recovery process:
