    yes. and it is your most likely "kill switch" hit. even though we are not doing deflection, number two would be a mess with the orbital cavities.

    I call your still shot and raise it with:



    Are you still sure?

    or, in Mook's case:


    I'm not being argumentative, here... just giving you every bit of information I can... and seeing if you "stick to your guns."

    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.

    Nope. That is only the criteria of his question. This is about anatomy, not tactics.

    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 you're only 6'5" away.... surely any "operator" could make that shot? Obviously, you've hit on the big picture Doodle...

    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.
    Rats!

    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.
