He was able to walk under his own power into the house and collapsed. The surgeon told us his heart stopped 3 times on the operating table. They were able to keep him alive, but the damage to his heart required them to put in a pace maker.


He was 27 years old at the time that he was shot. He died a few years later due to complications from his injuries.


You never know how a round will affect someone, no matter what caliber.
Damn, sorry about your loss. Indeed, you never do know.

Sometimes shot placement is not the key......

The cases I've seen the 22 to the head did the job, none of those folks are around to complain. I've also seen people survive 357 and 30-06 rounds to the head, 22 round nose bullet easily penetrates the skull and normally zip around in the skull instead of exiting. What makes them so dangerous in a head shot is the hole quickly gets plugged and pressure builds up and you die. The 357 head shot survivor walked out of the hospital several weeks later, granted he didn't walk real well but he did walk. He had two nice big holes in his head that didn't get clogged, the exit of course being much larger.

I do not mind I guess, but goes to show that folks can take your stuff off the internet any where and do what they want with it ! haha.

Simply.. It blew up while shooting WW Silvertips.. Hit search for any more info on it, i really do not want to go through the whole story, and it is on GT a cabillion times, and folks have posted it on other forum a cabillion times, and i seem to be the only one that knows how, why, where, because it is in MY hand and was MY gun !


Be safe !

Wow, thank you amigo ! I rarely get "nice comments through the day any more.." It is always 'refreshing' to know I'm not FOP ! At least you said I aint. Ha. I get called alot of things on the ranch sometimes ! haha.

I don't know how 'cool' I am, at least my grandkids think I am. ha. But I sure have strived all my life to be 'real,' and just be me... Folks can take me or leave me I rekcon.

As for a 'CM pic thread....' Man That's not only going to fill up GT, but liable to run everyone off. ! HaHa.. I got a little 'album' under my 'veiw public profile' thing on here, we probably best leave it at that man ! ha.



Thanks gatorboy !



Watch your six pard. No one elese will !

When I was a paramedic I hauled a number of GSW, a large portion were .22LR wounds. some were accidental, most were arm, hand, leg wounds. But the head wounds a good third of them died in route. chest and abd wounds usually survived.
But if that little bullet hits your brain, your Aorta, or some other large vessel your chance of dying are good.

I've seen a man shot in the head with a 38 which did not penetrate his skull...zipped around under the skin and popped out behind his ear. Now, I've seen bodies where they were shot with a 22 and it did them in. Typically abdominal shots....slow death. Saw one where a 25 to the chest killed a man, heart shot. Saw another where a 38 shot to the back popped out the front just below the rib cage....the guy lived. I guess the message here is shot placement can be important.

Sounds like the boy had good shot placement. Oh wait, is that in poor taste?....

IT IS NOT NECESSARY TO ENDANGER, BOTH, YOURSELF AND EVERYONE ELSE WITH LOADED CHAMBER (C-1) CARRY IN ORDER TO BE EFFECTIVE WITH A PISTOL. WHAT A COMPETENT PISTOLERO REALLY HAS TO BE IS,

(1) POSSESSED OF A CERTAIN AMOUNT OF REAL WORLD (LIFE) EXPERIENCE,

(2) DEMONSTRABLY SKILLED AT HIS CRAFT, AND

(3) PERSONALLY DISCIPLINED WITH THE RIGHT MENTAL AND EMOTIONAL ATTITUDES.


If someone sporting a carry pistol lacks the proper training, as well as ALL of the above physical and psychological prerequisites then, as far as I’m concerned, that person is no better than just another dangerous social goofball with a loaded gun who’s, out there, walking around in public - A goofball who constitutes himself as a viable potential threat to everyone with whom he comes into personal contact, including himself.

(I doubt, though, that I’m going to garner any, ‘merit badges’ for continuing to point this out!)

REFERENCE: http://www.tactical-life.com/tactica...mossad-22-lrs/


A LOADED CHAMBER DOES NOT "ENDANGER YOURSELF AND EVERYONE ELSE"

MISINFORMATION IS AS DEADLY AS CARELESSNESS


Why are you confusing 40-year old Mossad tactics with current-day self-defense? One has very little to do with the other. To someone so obviously afraid of firearms, I'm sure that since both involve "GUNS", both are the same subject. But self-defense tactics and 40-year old Mossad tactics are 2 different things.

And who goes around calling themselves a "pistolero"??

FYI, there isn't really any point in responding to him.

That's a 10mm, from what I can tell. I hope that no one was hurt.
