He has done this for some time and i see that he takes precautions some of us dont, by using hearing protection, eye protection, and other types of protection.


lolz, like a jockstrap perhaps :D

Blah, well to add onto the list of videos, heres one on either a person who is a complete idiot, or it just happened to be one of those "rare" explosions

Exactly - it's possible for as little as 5 or 6 ft-lbs (and perhaps even less) to be fatal if your luck is poor.

According to NATO you need at least 58 ft/lbs of impact energy to reliably inflict a fatal wound, however as you said it's a matter of luck. Through the eyes, a projectile can reach the brain without having to be moving fast enough to penetrate the skull, it doesn't take much force.

BTW, I believe the police officer was killed by a single shot to the upper chest, probably got through the rib cage and pierced his heart.

Well, obviously, the more energy, the less precise the shot placement is needed to be to be fatal.

But as a general rule, if it can pierce the skin to any real degree, it's got the potential to be fatal.
