    "The current record is an armed robber in Chicago who absorbed thirty-three rounds of 9mm in the chest and head, one round of 12 gauge buckshot, and one 12 gauge solid shot before he went down; this total does not include rounds that missed."

    Whoa!

    I thought I was paranoid with a spare mag next to the handgun. :)

    What is solid shot? Slug or bird shot?

    No kidding. Benavidez got hit 37 times and was still going. Gotta wonder how many bullets Benavidez + PCP would take....

    Bayonets do way more damage than any bullet. Although I'm sure this is a statistical anomaly, it seems like you need an assault rifle (whatever that is) and three 30-round mags to take out certain folks of extraordinarily high constitution.

    Baby Face Nelson. Can't remember how many times he was shot, and he did die soon after. But not before he walked across a road and killed a couple of police officers. He was shot, I believe, several times with a .45 Thompson before he did so.

    In 1916, Rasputin was shot, stabbed, beaten, poisoned with cyanide, and finally wrestled down to the frozen river and killed by being shoved through a hole in the ice to die from drowning.

    Marine Corps pilot and Medal of Honer recipient Pappy Boyington had 54 wounds from bullets and shrapnel after being shot down by the Japanese in WWII. After he parachuted into the water, he was strafed by 4 Japanese fighter planes. He had trouble getting into his life raft after finding dozens of holes in his life vest. After several hours he was picked up by a Japanese sub. One ear was almost completely shot off and part of his scalp was hanging over his face. He then spent 20 months in prisoner of war camps being beaten regularly until the end of the war. He survived even though he received minimal medical care for his wounds.

    That's another reason why I'd never try to knock that battery off his shoulder. (Old reference)

    Jmace57 +1 for Cole Younger. He might not be the 'winner' of this thread (lol) but he was the first that came to mind as soon as I saw the thread. 11 times including right in the face and lived! Late 1800s medical-technology and sterility no less

    "Some of these stories really shock the crap outta me."

    Roy Sullivan started working as a park ranger in Shenandoah Nat. Park in 1936. Between 1942 and 1977 he was stuck by lightning SEVEN times.

    He shot himself in 1983 at age 71 - over a woman.

    Some of these stories i just dont buy, they must have been exaggerrated to the extreme, esp some of the war ones..your telling me the guy got strafed by a plane all over the chest, plus other injuries,and didnt die? Another guy thirty plus rounds including 7.62 rounds, multiple hits from rifles, machine guns, bayonettes and shrapnel and didnt die? Guys shot 33 times with 9mmu including in the face and is still fighting? Im sure they were all tough guys, but surely something is not quite right here..

    Most holes I've seen in one guy (excluding shotgun injuries) was 10. That guy survived.
    But 10 holes doesn't necessarily mean 10 shots, it could be much less than that. Hell, it could be two lucky shots or even one incredibly lucky shot...

    A friend of mine was just on a jury where the defendant had been shot by police 16 times. The guy finally went down after being hit in the face with a load of buckshot. She said it was unreal.

    Aw, what's a few little bullets anyway?

    Phineas Gage took a 13-pound tamping bar through the head and lived. He was packing explosive in a hole when it went off and blew the tamping bar through his head.

    www.smithsonianmag.com/history-archaeology/Phineas-Gage-Neurosciences-Most-Famous-Patient.html

    "43 inches long, 1.25 inches in diameter and weighing 13.25 pounds—shot skyward, penetrated Gage’s left cheek, ripped into his brain and exited through his skull, landing several dozen feet away.

    The year was 1848, so it wasn't advanced medicine that saved him.

    Hans Schniedelwissen in ww1 was recorded as having wandered into no mans land during the battle of verdun, where he reportedly sustained repeated hits from the maxim machine guns..he wouldnt fall so supposedly after some time a mortar hit near him and exploded. He was later found alive on the battlefield with over 68 wounds from the maxims and completely without legs from the mortar blast. Later as he was being carried on stretcher they were ambushed by a group of tommies...who proceeded to kill everyone in his group. Hans was later found with a further 39 wounds from point blank thompson machine gun fire yet was still alive...he is still with us today at the ripe old age of 109.
