True, but the flip side is the smaller the damaged area of tissue caused by a RN profile-non expending bullet, the less the chance of creating the big leak. Living tissue is pretty elastic, it can avoid serious injury because of its flexibility. As I’m sure the poster above with the Medical Examiner trap partner has seen similar, I’ve seen several torso-shot folks dodge serious injury to organs when fmj handgun bullets somehow slide by them. I don’t know how it happens, but it does. One I vividly recall was a habitual hoodlum that I found down in an alley. He was shot seven times in the chest and abdomen with a 9mm and survived. The trauma team at the County hospital said some of the guys organs were punched with holes, primarily a lung and his intestines, but it looked like other bullets just pushed the stuff aside as they passed by. I was told at the time if the shooter had used expanding bullets they felt the internal damage would have easily been fatal. Since the majority of handguns aren’t great “stoppers” to begin with, I agree with the others who say putting a bit more of the odds in your favor by carrying good expanding bullets makes sense. Stay safe.
