So you are in close hand to hand combat. You pull your weapon and press it into the BG's gut. You pull the trigger and a muffled bang is heard.
Ok, so now what has happend? Did the barrel of the gun expand as if you packed it full of mud or were the tissues soft enought to allow effcient discharge of the gun disabling the Bg and not injuring you?
Would it be best to leave at least an inch or two between the barrel and the perp or would a press into the gut shot be okay to do?
