Please ask him to visit this forum and post a photo of his scar in this thread.
He won't do that. He doesn't even like to talk about it. I saw it accidently once after I'd known him for several years and pressured him into telling me. The gun was a 12 gauge single barrel and all I know is the shot was bird shot. It took out half of his stomach, his whole left side is sunk in and a mass of scar tissue.
