Interesting data on stopping power

Terminal ballistics as viewed from the morgue.  Thanks to Unc for the link.

There are a lot of interesting quotes in there, I like this one:

As for handguns, the name of the game is not only shot placement but how a properly-placed bullet acts once it gets there. I’ve seen folks killed by a bb to the eye and others survive after being hit by several well-placed rounds with a 9mm.

Indeed, one of the things that doesn’t get said enough is that because each person is different, person A may react completely different than person B to a gunshot wound in the exact same place.
