    Most people would think that a head shot is a definite kill when in fact it is not. To get a definite kill in the head you have to hit in the 'T' spot (across the eye area and down to the nose). Most of anywhere else if not close enough the bullet would most likely bounce off or only slip through the skin and around the skull. This is why the Marine Sgt. survived.

    He survived the head shot because of the kevlar. The old steel pot would not have deflected the round.

    Yes, you are right, I missed that part of the article. However, what I said is still true about head shots. Defence instructors teach this in their handgun training classes. That is how I learned it.

    They teach that the best place is mid body, then the next is the pelvic area, THEN the head. Always leave the head shot as a last resort.

    lol. This isn't even a racist thread. ;)

    You must be out to only attack peolpe on this forum. So you have nothing to say about the article?





    And I thought I told you I could not be a 'brother' due to the fact I am a woman. :D
