To dodge bullets

 We are not taught in school how to dodge bullets.
 It does not come somewhere in the timetable between history and maths.
 We are not shown the trajectory or the target
 the mechanism or the firepower.
 Can you shoot someone and not kill them?
 Can you merely main them so they walk through the rest of their life with a limp?
 Can you choose the calibre of a bullet
 so as to damage but not destroy completely?

 When the time comes you will not have to dodge bullets.
 With a wave of his hand they fell to the ground.

 I wonder if it works with other people's words.
