if you were shot throught your hands could there be perminant damage?
There arent that many muscles in the hand - most of them are actually in the forearm, the tendons of which extend into the hand. There are a few intrinsic muscles involved in fine movement in the hand itself, like the thenar eminence (the fleshy part of your hand near your thumb). Getting shot in the hand could cause you to lose fine movement, and could cause you to be unable to opose your thumb. It could also cause lose of sensation in some aspects of the hand.
true, my best friend was stabbed through the middle of his palm a little closer to his thumb and he survived with barely any damage, just a nasty scar... it was a butterfly knife that did it. so im not sure if a bullet would be the same but its pretty close.
For one you could damage nerve endings and end up with permanent numbness in some areas.
