.38 Snake Shot
I've used it before in a revolver to dispatch unwanted snakes, but I never considered this stuff to be very potent.
A few weeks ago a man was shot in the back while riding his bicycle. The guys who shot him still haven't been found, so the police have released more information about the shooting today.
The man was shot once in the back with .38 or .357 rat shot. He was hit with 130 pellets.
This 65 year old man has been in the hospital since the shooting, has undergone several surgeries, is still in a lot of pain, and has yet more surgery ahead of him.
Anyone know of the ballistics on rat/snake shot? I'm suprised there was enough penetration with this stuff to do that much damage.
I hope they catch the guys (probably teens on a joy ride). A second bicyclist was shot at the same night, but he heard them coming and dove for cover.
Never argue with drunks or crazy people.
