Since your scar is just a straight line and probably isn't affecting the "level" or texture of the skin, it'll be even easier to fix.

    I don't mean to repeat anything that's probably said before. I've only read the OP.
    It's not really "plastic surgery" but it is being done tomorrow (when I say "done" I mean cleaned/sewed up/glued or whatever they do) by the plastics unit. I really thought they would just give me stitches right then but they said this way it will lessen the chances of scarring. I am impressed they offered me this - though it does mean I have to go in at 7:30 and be prepared to wait for hours (obviously it won't be their biggest priority of the day.)

    I live in a country with public health care, so I'm all good.

    47s get ridiculously hot.. I've had a few weapons 'run away' before (when you shoot so much on a gas-cooled weapon that it starts to automatically fire bullets even though you don't pull the trigger.. it happens more-so to machine guns when you don't change the barrel like you're suppose to..) when we were trying to get rid of ammo after a range. It's a pretty cool experience, seeing a barrel turn white from the heat.. its not good for the weapon but still cool to do once or twice. The brass landing on you right after firing a round is worse than the weapon itself though. I've seen some pretty rad scars from people having it fall down their shirt collar and getting trapped and pushed into their skin. Its like a branding.

    Also, I've told my sister who has a rad scar down her forearm on both sides she could do scarification to her arm.. a design in it and around it might make it more feminine and pretty looking.
    I love that you can't resist making the rifle sort of explode a little.. that's fucking awesome, I'm actually laughing.

    Scarification, hmm.. I bet I could easily make my scar look like a backward percent % symbol.. maybe I'll draw that on with eyeliner and ask my doctor what she thinks at my next followup, just to give her a fright for a moment- NOOO MY WORK! YOU MUSTN'T RUIN MY WORRRRRK! *she grabs a scalpel, & locks the exam room door*

    I dig your recommendation for your sister, though- I've seen that stuff done on some friends, it actually looks cool.

    I could see your doctor's sudden frown.. "I told her that Jack is a bad influence!"

    Yeah, her scar is on both sides of her forearm--rather large and runs the entire length from elbow to wrist. A good artist could turn that into some incredibly complex henna-like designs, or turn it into lightning bolts running along her arm or something. If I had a huge scar like that, I think I'd do that for sure if I ever thought it looked 'ugly' on me. My sister used to wear arm warmers everywhere because she didn't like it for the first year.

    Whatever she does with 'em.. I bet there's a killer story about them, all the same.

    I'm thinking about getting a zip-pull tattoo at the top of my big scar. Or possibly an "ACCESS RESTRICTED" stamp. Or both. I keep meaning to get it done in henna to see whether I like it, but never seem to get around to it...

    People don't notice. I have a scar between the middle of my upper lip to the beginning of my nose (so, above my lip) from splitting it on a hose valve when I was three. A plastic surgeon stitched me up. If anything, It makes me happy because it's unique. Don't stress.

    Scars are interesting. In my opinion it represents a certain resilience of the individual. It's a conversation starter, something that can be talked about, and something to learn from.
