While I am certainly not trying to stir the pot... I just have to say "wow," nice real world example of IGETEVEN's insistence in that Governor thread
that a smaller caliber round would indeed penetrate far enough to stop a BG in his tracks...
Very impressive shot placement.
Of particular note is that the ONE SHOT was obviously from an oblique angle, and NOT from a direct full-frontal attack, because the affected organs were the RIGHT lung and the HEART.
IMHO, I don't see any way (other than a magic bullet
) for a bullet to travel from the right lung into the heart while the BG is in a squared off position to the shooter.
This scenario would make a good "Hollywood movie" scene where one shot drops the BG in his tracks with a smaller caliber handgun.
armsmaster270, kudos on stopping the BG with a single shot!
