Where could she be shot without dying or having to suspend the readers belief too much?
How would she get sewn up?
Would they leave the bullet or try to take it out?
A little background information: it's set fifteen to twenty years in the future, in Poland if that's relevant. I'm imagining the gun to be a Walther P99, which is a 9mm, fired at probably three or four metres.
Thanks so much for all the information.
edit: I did google and wiki it, but only found some pictures and medical journals.
