I have a story about the dangers of falling while shooting. While not with a pistol I was running with a shotgun in my hands. While running uphill I realized that I was falling. I did the land on my elbows thing. I didn't do anything that warranted a dq. I hopped back up and kept shooting. The next day I was found unconscious and taken to hospital. They diagnosed me with a delayed concussion. This fall was hard enough to give me brain damage so bad I'm still dealing with it 2.5 yrs later. And I'm been on disability since.
