The guy was shot dead center mass. Heart and spine hit. I do not know for how long he was able to breath. However, he was eliminated from fight instantly.

The shooter most likely run out of ammo and I did not see him reload. Maybe he did reload off the camera. No one is shot with 9mm HST or Gold Dot center mass and would stay in the fight unless he is wearing armor.

According to story at Bearing Arms that isn't smoke, it's the store's fire suppression system spraying.

20 year plus of ER / ICU RN trauma level 1 , I saw no center mass or head survivors. A few arm or leg wounds if early bleeding controled . One head wound ( organ donor) because EMS was 1/2 block away.

He missed. The 45 just made him die of fright. :biggrinjester:

Shooting 10mm indoors? That'd blow the roof off the place... :lol:

When asked about the scars I hear replies like "yep, got me with a 9", "3 times with a 380 and I'm still here", or "hit with a 40 but I'm tough". I have rarely spoken to an offender who has scars from a 45. Wonder why?


Because so few people can afford the ammo? :headscratch

The glass on the case breaks in the video. Is that from the stray rounds from the BG? The subsonic shock wave of the .45 breaks glass that close? The GG ducked behind the case and fired through it?

It looks like the BG squeezed off a round almost instantly after being hit. I had to watch it several times, but that's what it looks like to me.
