I pick #3 for the eyeball shot and the win, Alex.
I'll stick with number one.
I can appreciate your elimination of all the detailed baggage associated with this shot. A very good scenario that makes a very good point.
"I'll take door number one Bob!"
"This is Bob Barker saying goodbye and tune in next week to Let's make a Kill Shot!"
This is a trick question! The correct answer is not listed. As we all know, the best, and most obvious, shot to take would be to shoot him in the leg. That's the best way to stop the threat without unduly endangering him. Anything else would just be excessive and unnecessary!
But, you're over-complicating it... The shot will hit where the laser is pointing.
Sheesh! It don't get any easier!
I would have to say right thru the front teeth. Less bone, still going to sever the MO and get a bonus spinal severance.
I'm a peaceful kind of guy; I'd just talk Mook to death.
A. Pretty sure #1 is the answer you're looking for, for the perfect light-switch effect.
B. Also pretty sure #2 and #3 would be stoppers, or at least smart a whole lot.
C. I'm betting that if I'm on my game, #2 or #3 would also be a more likely hit because that's where I'm going to be looking (eyes).
D. What's up with Mook wearing mascara?
Given a straight, level, anterior to posterior trajectory, a through and through shot will penetrate as follows:
#1 hindbrain, distal pons and proximal medulla.
#2 pituitary, midbrain/thalamus and cerebellar stems.
#3 lower medial temporal lobe and possibly inferior third ventricle.
Sorry, I couldn't resist. It was like seeing your favorite category on "Jeopardy".
All I know about the medulla oblongata is that it makes alligators ornery:
Just to be a little different #3.
I am assuming I have a BB Gun.
I will put HIS eye out!!!
Tell us more from a ballistic standpoint which round would be the most likely to inflict the damage you described.
Personally I use a expanding 124 gn 9mm in my edc at 995 fps. Home is 45 colt 230 12bnh cast at 770 fps.
