:rofl: The guy that actually said that is named Mark Baker, he was teaching Ol' Mel to shoot a flintlock. They liked the line so much they wrote it into the movie, and Mark hasn't ha a moments peace since! :image035:BlueLion said:Ol' Mel said it best. "Aim small miss small"
My take has always been if you have to shoot take the best shot you get, and if he doesn't stop, take it again.I am going COM and if that fails I will try a head shot. See with a COM shot you are guaranteed to hit some real estate, but with going for the head only, and under stress you may miss and end up getting killed.
Interesting point from another forum: anyone ever seen or heard of a pelvic fracture induced by a handgun caliber? Mulling it over, I realized I haven't, and I've seen more than a few(pelvic fractures and shootings), discussed more in training sessions. Realistically, to "blow the structure", you'd have to hit the femoral condyle-the hip joint-, which is not much different than trying a CNS shot, so...... Granted, you have a nice confluence of vessels in the pelvis, but certaing not a split second fight-stopper.Zundfolge said:Also, pelvis is a structural area ... NOBODY, I don't care what drugs they are on, will continue to advance with a broken pelvis ... the laws of physics work against them.
To amplify a bit, I have also seen some pelvic shootings w/o pelvic fractures.Bud White said:That is a Good point Rob72 and one you never read about so is it just theory ?
But i think you have given us the heads up since as you say you would think by the amount of time you have spent in medical field seeing the pelvic shots you should have seen one broke by now even if by chance..
