bullet non-injuries

I have a character reminiscing about when she worked in "security," and showing her buddy a few scars she's got because she "never asked anyone else to take a bullet for me."
We're now ten years past, and she has full use of all her appendages (although she could be weak in her left arm if necessary). Where was she shot?

The available medicine in her situation would have consisted of gauze and stitches, with 'cleaning' being done with hot salt water or magical fire. At the time she was being shot at, she was 20-something, short but muscular and fast.

So, to sum up, looking for body-places a healthy young woman could be shot, that ten years later she'd seem fine despite limited medicine.
