I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: Medical treatment is something we take for granted and we really shouldn’t. Even a simple cut in the P.A.W. can be life-threatening if you don’t treat it. For something more serious like a gunshot wound it is imperative that you know how to stop the bleeding and treat the wound in order to survive, whether you’re the one shot or not. The OutdoorLife Survival blog has an article on how to survive being shot.
While most of you will likely never be in the position that Reeson found himself, the question is worth asking: If, god forbid, you are ever shot, what should you do to survive?
The short answer is that you survive getting shot with a little bit of luck, some skill, ample trauma first aid supplies, a degree of stubbornness and maybe a little divine providence.
