Should i go to the doctor?

Okay so I heard a noise in my garage so I grabbed my bb gun and went in, turns out there was a racoon in there! I didn't want to kill the little guy since he was so young so I shot at the wall to scare him and the bb ricocheted and hit me in the arm, I can't get the bb out! Should I go to the doctor or just keep trying to get it out?

You have a gunshot wound. Call 911 or risk death by gangrene, tetanus or blood poisoning. Copper oxide is toxic.
I hope you exited the garage, because the raccoon will finish you off if you pass out. Raccoons are scavengers and feed on anything that won't fight them off

Go to the doctor!!! Gun shot wounds are fatal. If you don't get that bb removed you could die from it.

At least you are familiar with the movie.Unless it gets infected...you should be fine.I still have lead from a pencil point in my finger from 20 years ago..and know a guy that has a bb in his hand on his thumb joint.

Go get it looked at by a professional .. digging at it will cause infection. You might also need a tetanus shot if you haven't already had one.

And .. don't shoot BB's at animals .. Even though a bb might not kill it .. it can still cause a lot of damage and distress for an animal and perhaps even cause it to die an unspeakable painful death due to infection.
