Look at that Gold dot, looks perfect, the Federals look better than I thought they would and that Winchester looks mean.
What would you suggest as a more realistic medium? like a fresh hog corpse or something?That's a nice comparison, and I thank you for posting it as a guideline, but in the real world it doesn't mean much. The human body is generally thought to be 80% water, not the 100% used in the test. This percentage is highly variable depending on the area of the body. The brain and the thigh muscles might actually give you expansion close to what the testing represents, while the lungs will contribute next to nothing towards expansion. So where are we taught to aim in a defense situation? Center mass... an area that contains a lot of lung tissue.
Fortunately, as Americans add to the global obesity problem the expansion tests will become closer to reality.
The prison could make some extra money by using the inmates to model "Lardasche" jeans.JonM
Hmmmmmm interesting theory on prison foods. There was a special on TV a few years back about a sherff's dept somewhere that the state allowed them to spend the prison food money pretty freely & the dept got to keep the savings. The Sheriff bought TRUCK LOADS of cheap *** hot dogs!!! HAahahahahah it never did show the prisoners or talk about their weight. They had to be pretty darn plump after 6-10 months of that stuff. I could go along with your plan to test it for awhile
Well, taking my medical career into account my first choice would be personal injury lawyers, but there's no season on them. Failing that, convicted child molesters would do.What would you suggest as a more realistic medium? like a fresh hog corpse or something?
That's when shot placement comes into play. A healthy knowledge of anatomy would help, too.Whats more interesting to me is what happens when a bullet doesnt expand. Since uncle murphy has more say over that im more inclined to want to see such data.
