I'll shoot at 1
This is a discussion on Head shot.. almost live within the Off Topic & Humor Discussion forums, part of the The Back Porch category; Okay here's the setup (and you can't change it!): Your eyeballs are 6 feet 5 inches from the tip of Mook's nose. You and Mook ...
Okay here's the setup (and you can't change it!):
- Your eyeballs are 6 feet 5 inches from the tip of Mook's nose.
- You and Mook are exactly the same size. Your weapon's sights are at eye level (sights are not in the picture, yet)...
- It's a handgun (caliber yet undetermined)...
- Hardball ammo (FMJ)
- The laser sight is activated and you can see the three targets it would paint on Mook's face
- ONLY ONE SHOT
(Click on the picture for full size)
You have a choice...
Target 1, 2, or 3
as numbered here:
Which target, if you hit it accurately, will hit the medulla oblongata? Giving that shot the only chance to stop any autonomous nerve reaction which might cause Mook to kill whatever his gun is aimed at?
Keep in mind.. in this very first scenario at least... there is no bone fragmentation. So, the bullet goes thru and thru in whatever size (caliber) it is to begin with...
Sometime next week, I will have the animation, showing all three bullet paths in at least one caliber from this set up with no changes... and I'll post it here.
It could be worse!
I'll be different............I'll take top of the "T"..............#2........between the eyes is always advantageous.
I'd take a shot at 1
"For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast." - Ephesians 2:8-9
“The purpose of the law is not to prevent a future offense, but to punish the one actually committed” - Ayn Rand
Just so you know... I believe any of the shots would be deadly... pretty much instantly... but things are changing in the world of medicine, and many brain injuries that were UN-survivable just a few years ago, are not so now... providing the medical care is good, and timely...
So any of these shots are kill shots... but only one has a chance of "shutting off the switch." And I personally wouldn't take any of them if Mook's gun was pointed (with his finger starting to squeeze the trigger) at someone I cared about (or for that matter, any innocent)...
It could be worse!
Straight through and through I'd take 1.

Crossman 760 BB/Pellet, Daisy Red Ryder, Crossman Wrist Rocket, 14 Steak Knives, 3 Fillet Knives, Rolling Pin-14", Various Hunting Knives, 2 Baseball Bats, 3 Big Dogs and a big American Flag flying in the yard. I have no firearms; Try the next house.
I'd say #1 is the main breaker switch. Although in real life, I'd shoot more than once.
I like the teardrop tat - nice touch.

In the next series, I'll correct that for "right eye" targeting.

#1 would hit the brain stem.

Well, I believe #1 is most likely to hit the MO straight through, but the chances of actually hitting it are still slim. Deflection from bones and such would throw it off.
