More humans and animals are killed with the .22.It is not an ideal weapon but it will do if it is in your hand.Just as any caliber you need to place not a round but rounds into a vital area.I have personally killed many hogs with a single .22 round and some just wont go down.That is why a .22 is one of proffessional hit men favorite weapons.
It was blocked or something. I was told it wasnt appropriate?? Dont know. No biggie. Just wondered. Hg
"How many shots form a 9mm handgun does it take (shots to the chest and stomach) to bring down a man? How quickly will a man fall to the ground after 4 shots are fired? DOes he fall backwards like in the movies or does he fall forward?"
There is a reason you are told to shoot until the threat is neutralized. As has been said by many others -- you just never know.
How big is the person, how angry, how high or drunk, how well trained, how active at the time you shot, etc., etc., etc.?
What did you shoot him or her with? Lead, FMJ, hollow point, soft point, etc.? What was bullet placement?
I suspect the variables are nearly endless.
So, keep shooting until the threat is removed -- or, he/she gets to you, and you are "extinguished".
Well agent 007 James Bond used a variety of guns in his long career, but there were a couple of movies in which he used a Walther P5 9mm (Never Say Never Again) and a Walther P99 9mm (Tomorrow Never Dies). It's hard to imagine that 007 would ever need to shoot someone more than once :)
well,James Bond is hollywood and is not real world.I have read alot of accounts where suspects were shot 1 time in a area that hit no vitals or bones or anything of significance and fell incapacitated.Cause ,mental voodoo.We as a generation -the younger people-are so programmed by movies and TV that the mind tells me I been hit and fall.There was one officer I read about that interrupted a robbery and the suspect fired 1 .22 round.The officer felt a stinging sensation and fell.He pulled his weapon and fired 4 rounds killing him.When he searched himself he found no wound.But he felt the sting.Voodoo.
sorry to burst your bubble no santy claus
That's just a weird question....??
No Santa? James Bond not real? Burst my bubble, will you!!
Now, what can I believe in -- especially since I can't trust my super-duper-Glock17 to dispatch bad guys with one shot.
No respect, I tell you, no respect!
To be serious, in 1979 I became a police officer in a city in Georgia. The month before that an officer was killed by a single .22 cal bullet. He was chasing a felon down an alley. The felon found concealment and waited on the officer. The officer was wearing a vest however he had both arms extended out holding his revolver. As he came even with the felon in hiding the felon fired his .22 cal handgun once. The bullet entered thru the officers side and entered his heart killing him instantly. Freak things happen.
