I don't know too much about guns or bullets but I'm working on this story where my characters gets hit with a bullet to the leg. The gun is an average hand-gun and the bullet passes through his leg cleanly. There's an entrance wound and an exit wound. I'm not sure if this plays a role in recover time but the character is a young sixteen year old, healthy male.
My question is, about how long would it take for him to recover from an injury like that?
