Anonymous asked: Do you have any posts on how to show a gunshot wound? I saw your sword fighting reblog and I’m stuck in my story because I don’t want to put out any bad information.

Absolutely. Research is crucial to writing believable stories, and so many stories involve guns, so these resources should be able to help out a fair number of people.

Asterisks indicate links with photographs as examples, a heads-up for the blood-weary.

Does anyone else have any other resources?
