Generally speaking, pain or trauma to the body in any non-lethal form will cause an involuntary muscle contraction. In other words - the grip on the gun will get TIGHTER, unless the injury is a mechanical shutdown of the affected area (broken bone, severed tendon, severe nervous system trauma).

Therefore, unless you hit the arm in such a spot as to physically and mechanically disable the gripping hand, it will for the most part remain intact (or stonger).

Of course, a lot of this is subjective. Some people have lower tolerance for pain. My 14 year daughter will walk around with her arm in a sling if she gets a hangnail. :wink:

Those with higher pain tolerance (naturally or chemically induced) are not likely to drop their weapon if they are shot with a "flesh wound".
