We report three cases of gunshot injuries of the brain, all sustained in civilian life - one suicidal, one parasuicidal and one accidental in a riot situation. One proved fatal after a few days while the other two survived and had the lodged bullet removed successfully. All the three showed varying degrees of migration of the bullet inside the brain. The features are presented in detail and the relevant literature regarding wound ballistics and the mechanism of migration of the bullet inside the brain as also its ultimate restriction reviewed along with the implications for their management including the acceptable indications for their surgical removed.
