How do you know the people shot in the head who live, or -even more extreme- carry on the fight, are not simply statistical outliers? I've heard the proper target area is a triangle of the eyes and nose sockets. But a piece of lead smacking you on the skull will have some effect, no matter what. People also say windshields can stop or deflect bullets, but when you shoot a couple you may decide their supposed protective qualities are best left unused. P.S. Helpful friendly time: Balloons make good targets and you can let them drift or bounce around on a tether.
