    Good information, especially for those who have not been exposed to it. Much of the caliber and velocity info is old news to the gun community but there are still many new gun owners without this background.

    Incidentally, I watched the entire presentation carefully.

    From my read of it, if using a .380, a lot of hollowpoints to the gut is the way to go. If he doesn't bleed out the infection should finish the job.
    I don't always have nothing to say, but when I do, I post it on Facebook.

    If your goal is to kill. Of course he may die of the infection a couple of days after he beat you to death.

    And yes, I realize you were being tongue-in-cheek.

    I completely agree. The correct statistic would be that 6 out of 7 handgun victims THAT REACH THE OPERATING ROOM will probably survive.

    But overall I think the point is directionally valid. i.e. unless you are lucky enough to hit a vital part of the body, the bad guy is capable of continuing to attack although probably with a diminished capacity. So, multiple shots, center of mass. I guess it's a nice validation of the standard advice.

    I watched the whole thing very carefully as well... I found it interesting that the .45 hollow point went through the lung and rested in the muscle in the back.... I also found it interesting that the same round (.45 hollow point, in the same victim, presumably from the same gun) going through the sternum stopped mms from the heart. (1 cm, IIRC)

    I also found it very interesting that flesh (skin) has the same resistance as a 4" thickness of muscle.

    And, somewhere early on.... the good Doctor told us that what you need to survive is the brain stem... the Medulla Oblongata... and that's what I'm working on demonstrating with "head shot" (In the off topic section...)
    Rats!
    It could be worse!
    I suppose

    Good video. Managed to make it all the way through.

    Good placement with larger calibers seems to be your best bet. I don't think it's either good placement or big bullets, but rather a combination of both that should yield the best results. But, if you have to choose one over the other, it looks like placement is the more important of the two.

    I made it through as well. Excellent video.

    My take-away was the reminder that anybody worth shooting once, is worth shooting many times. Or more precisely, to quote Matthew Temkin, "Shoot him to the ground".

    Exactly. The video of the guy getting shot twice with the 9mm and and running away is point enough of this. Need to shoot until the threat is stopped, regardless of how many that is.
