I'm suspecting that the stab answers are in the wrong here, but I wanted to make sure. Is getting stabbed in the shoulder less likely to cause nerve damage and excessive bleeding out than getting shot in the same area? Or is it about the same?
(And while I'm on the topic: does getting shot/stabbed in the back of the shoulder (from behind) carry the same risks? Or does that depend on how far the bullet/knife goes in?)
