Can a ninja dodge a bullet?

Let's say there is a ninja in the other room and he's taking all my DVD's and Xbox 360 games and I'm a little nervous about going in there. Say I have a gun and I know how to use it fairly well in target practice, but I'm not a professional marksman or anything. I am also not a pirate.

If I go in shooting, what are the odds of survival for both myself and the ninja?

Your prompt reply is appreciat

Your odds improve greatly if you call 911 and explain how you plan to kill the ninja. They will try to talk you out of it, and that will give the ninja time to run away, ensuring your survival.

If he's still there, YMMV.

Realistically, when you start spraying your gun, ninja would have flee without any harm.

Your odds of survival are very good. According to Mythbusters, ninjas cannot dodge bullets!

I just assumed the ninja got him before he was able to finish his sentence. I guess ninjas CAN dodge bullets.

According to realultimatepower.net , you're pretty much screwed. The ninja will probably eat the bullet, and shit it out across the room and right through your heart.

What makes you think you'd even get a shot off before he lodges three stars in your forehead?

A ninja would not HAVE to dodge a bullet.

He could cut it in half with his sword.

Of course, you would not be able to see him to take aim.

You wouldn't even know the ninja was there, so the whole discussion is kind of pointless.

Please. I think he just ordered a pizza. He's only on the 9th movie because the stupid jerk doesn't like owning movies he's never seen before.

I just gave the ninja your username. I bet he can trace that as soon as he's done robbing me. Be afraid.

After dodging the bullet he would have time to finish this coke, before your body hit the floor.

Throw your baby at the ninja. It is a widely-believed fact that ninjas cannot resist rocking a baby. Thus distracted, you can then sneak up behind the ninja and shoot him.
