Default Man survives being shot 21 times

Unusual story about gunshot survival. A good reminder that it's all about bullet placement.

Ain't that strange ... not the survival of 26 bullets ... but this happening (AGAIN) in anti-gun campaigner mayor Bloomberg's backyard. Are we to expect another soon?

WTF? Did the NYPD learn to shoot at the Stevie Wonder school of firearms?

[QUOTE]
"Nothing like this has happened here in years. It's very unusual," said James White, a yoga instructor who lives in the area.

What hasn't happened? The NYPD re-enacting the shootout at the OK Corral? Yeah- has not hapened since LAST WEEK outside the Empire State Building!

If you are going to the Big Apple, be sure to take your kevlar pills.

Bloomberg needs to ban cops from carrying guns they aren't proficient in using. He likes to ban stuff, so it seems like a solution that fits his profile.

Clear example of how important proficiency with your firearm is. Shot placement is as important as which caliber or bullet type you use.
