The implications of a gunshot to the chest

So I have this guy. 30 years old, around 5'9", very healthy and fit. This guy takes a bullet for someone else and it hits him in the chest. While this gunshot could have been lethal, the guy survives and makes a full recovery, eventually.

If I want the gunshot to be almost lethal, where should the bullet hit? And what would be the fastest time for recovery, assuming he gets good treatment and there are no complications? This happens in a city, so there's access to hospitals.

Four years down the road, would he still have anything to remind him of the gunshot other than a nasty scar? Chest pains or anything like that?
