This is a discussion on Head shot.. almost live within the Off Topic & Humor Discussion forums, part of the The Back Porch category; Originally Posted by oakchas would it hit the Medulla? yes. and it is your most likely "kill switch" hit. even though we are not doing ...
So the moral of this story is when looking straight into ones face... Aim for the tip of the nose... Yeah I could make that shot under stress... Right.
Number 1. I read that snipers shoot for the area between the nose and upper lip. BG's are dead and they don't even feel it.
But in this case... you are on target... nobody's moving... all you have to do is pull the trigger...
In this magic scenario... you don't ever pull the shot... you will hit one of the three (whichever one you decide)... and I assume from your response, you're going to also aim for target #1 ... okay. I got that...
As this project progresses, I can (and hope to) introduce a little venous throbbing... some jitter.... Maybe Mook is as jumpy as a crack head... I've already given you "tunnel vision" you can't see Mook's hands... you don't see your daughter's frozen wide eyed terror with Mook's gun at her temple and the fear that you are going to shoot... and it's all happening in Pekinpah's slow motion... due to the adrenal dump. Heck, I'll even give you auditory exclusion... you won't hear your shot...
While the object is realism.. And I could tweak Mook to look more believable.. that part isn't necessary to the exercise... The parts that I WILL show are the efficacy of your chosen shots... in this and subsequent "episodes" of Head Shot... Stay tuned.
We need more answers folks... 1,2 or 3? What's your choice? go ahead... commit to it here... let's see how you do.
It could be worse!
But seeing as I use a .44 Magnum, the most powerful handgun in the world, and would blow his head clean off, he's got to ask himself one question: "Do I feel lucky"
#1 all the way, IMO gives the most wiggle room as well.

In case some of you uncultured swine missed my point
anybody who missed your point pgrass, is on the wrong forum...
It could be worse!
So seems I'm the only guy so far who would settle for blowin his brains out on the street choosing #2.......Hmmmmm. #1 will definately clear his sinus congestion.
