    Default Man Survives Five Bullets In Head

    Umm... fucking hell anyone



    AN 84-year-old Argentine man fired five bullets into his head and one into his chest and remained conscious during the trip to hospital.

    "You can say the man was still in his senses despite his injuries. He couldn't speak, but he communicated with gestures,'' police captain Herman Ruben Gab told Telam news agency after he responded to an emergency call by the man's nephew, who heard the shots.

    He said he found Jacobo Beck inside his home, sitting in an armchair, with a .22 calibre pistol at his side and bullet wounds to the head and chest.

    Mr Beck was taken to a nearby hospital where X-rays showed five bullet slugs lodged in his head and one in his chest, Captain Gab said.

    He said Mr Beck slipped into a coma soon after he arrived at the hospital and was listed in critical condition.

    That's why you shouldn't be a pussy and use a .22 to shoot yourself.

    As morbid as it sounds that was the first thing that crossed my mind as I was reading this. If you were really disturbed enough to want to blow your brains out, why in the hell would you figure a .22 would be the right tool for the job???

    Um, sure. Why not use the Taurus PT1911SS? SO stylish in the bead blast stainless steel with the skeletonized trigger with only 5 lbs of trigger pull... fantastic improved grips too...probably stay in your hand even after you're cold. very affordable and it's what all the cool cats are using to off themselves

    Seriously, guys. It's a weapon regardless. If it can't off an 84-year-old after 5 headshots, what's the point in 22 gauge guns at all then.

    I wonder if he stopped at 5 shots because he had to ask himself, "Did I fire 5 shots or 6 shots? I am feeling lucky right about now."

    This seems somewhat appropriate...

    I can't EVEN begin to tell you how many fatal gunshots scene's I've made where the victims were shot with .22 cal guns.

    Funny thing about .22's are this...if you get shot in the upper/lower torso (Chest/Abdomin) area the bullets enter the body and bounce around like ping pong balls. Any hard surface such as bones deflect them in all directions.

    Last shooting I made involving a .22 was an 11 year old little boy who was shot in the upper left clavicle and the bullet hit the bone, went into the boy's chest where it hit his aorta with total seperatation about a 4th of an inch from his heart. We worked (CPR) this kid for about 20 minutes until we arrived at LSU Med Center. Got this kid into the code room and it was there that the "DOC'S" "cracked his chest" and opened him up to find that due to his injury, this kid bled out internally. I had the front row seat when they opened him up and pretty much every ounce of blood he had, fell onto the floor. All efforts were stopped, suctioned out his chest wall and finally found the true extent of the damage to his aorta.

    The only thing this man had going for him was LUCK. I'm sure he doesn't feel very lucky at this point, but in the end he prolly will not survive this. So, mission accomplished.....I guess.

    That's what I'm sayin, daddy oh! You said cool cats, so I was playing along.

    The dude seems to me to be a complete tool. How does one fuck up his own off-ing? It's a real question. A fucking 22? That's just plain retarted. Sucks that his life went south and he tried to pussy out on the game plan, but damn! But on a serious note, like double H said, it puts more work on people like him. I'm sure Huricane Halen has better lives to save than idiots like this. And yes I know HH didn't say this, but he tends to deal with this shit all the time. I'm assuming that is. Like they say, "if you ever get into a gun pinch, make sure your gun starts with a 4...and better yet ends with a 5. Out.

    The strange thing is a headshot with a .44 will leave you headless. A .45 will take off most of your head. A 9 milly will put a hole clean through the head. A .22 will pierce the skull, with the bullet spinning around inside the skull, frappeing the brain.

    while a lot of this is correct, it also depends greatly on the type of amunition used...heck a team of canadian snipers shot and killed a guy in afganistan from over 2400m with a .50 McMillan bolt-action rifle.
    although i cant quite see the relevence.
    the human body is an amazing machine that can survive the most extreme injuries but yet sometimes the slightest thing can kill us, this guy was dumb lucky!

    The current record for longest range sniper kill is 2,430 metres (7,972 ft), accomplished by a Canadian sniper, of the third battalion Princess Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry (3 PPCLI), during the invasion of Afghanistan, using a .50 BMG (12.7 mm) McMillan bolt-action rifle. This meant that the round had a flight time of four seconds, and a drop of 44.5 m (146 ft). The previous record was held by Carlos Hathcock, achieved during the Vietnam War, at a distance of 2,250 m.
