I would question that bolded portion.
Placement is always an issue. A very large (plus 300lbs) Gent, was shot three times center mass, with a 1911, New York City, what with the blood and all, they just stuck him in a body bag.
When he sat up with a huge groan in an intersection, the two ambulance staff fled! He recovered.
