The best thing you could do for yourself is to just try and avoid getting shot altogether. But if you do find yourself on the wrong end of a bullet, here are some things you need to know.

1. Placement is everything.

The size, speed, and bearing of the bullet, along with its place of entry, can make a world of difference in whether you survive or die. For example, getting shot on the left side of the heart will cause more internal bleeding than if you were shot on the right side.

2. Getting shot can cost you a lot of money.

If you survive a shooting, imagine all of the medical bills that you'll have to pay afterwards. Hospital stays, prescription medicine to numb the pain, and insurance payments can make getting shot a nightmare even after the act is over.

3. There are worse things to be shot with than bullets.

Sure, laser guns don't exist just yet, but we have particle accelerators that make small amounts of matter move at almost the speed of light. That would do some pretty hefty damage to a human being, and a bullet doesn't even need to be involved.

4. Women are more likely to survive a gunshot.

Women are 14% more likely to survive a traumatic injury than men, but they have almost double the amount of nerve endings as guys. So while they are more likely to survive, they'll feel more pain in doing so.

5. Bulletproof vests aren't magic.

If you've seen someone get shot on TV and they're wearing a bulletproof vest, it seems like they always walk away with no damage to their body. That is definitely not the case, though. All a bulletproof vest does is prevent bullet entry, but getting shot with a vest on still packs a huge wallop. It just spreads the force of the bullet over the area of the vest.

In both WW2 and NYPD police records, the average rate that firers hit the person they were firing at (when there was some danger to the shooter, ie return fire) was 24%.

According to FBI records regarding police shootings going back to the 1920s the likelihood of being instantly killed by a bullet is around 9%. Most gunshot wounds are actually treatable if medical care is available soon.

taking a round (.45 cal or rifle round) in the chest while wearing a vest is like taking a sledge hammer blow to the chest, it isnt pleasant. On the bright side, you survive, but you very well can (and likely will) sustain internal injuries from heavy rounds. 9mm seems to stop well, still a punch, but nothing like a .308 or 7.62 round. A .50 cal round, well, nothing worn stops that from great damage to the body (that I have ever seen) The quality,type, make-up of vest is everything. -and yes I have...

Might interest you to search for 'Dragon Skin' armour. Protects you from almost any round.
May still lead to internal injuries, but can supposedly protect you from a frag grenade if lying on top of it. (all the projectiles from it anyhow)
