    Ouch. Tragic ending to the story. Indeed, it would have been better had he used enough gun, though I wonder if brain injury may have influenced his later actions.

    So much for the old BS about a .22 making three or four trips around the inside of the skull and making pink foam out of the whole brain!

    Like the guy said, Always Use a Big Enough Gun!!

    That one right there obviously wasn't!!

    Isn't that an old mafia joke? "He had an accident. He locked himself in a trunk and shot himself four times."

    In that first exposure- it is kinda surreal seeing those .22 caliber bullets just sitting there lodged against his skull. Looks like the even deformed/expnded a little bit.

    I guess that's what they call being "hard-headed". :D

    I am not impressed with the lethality of a .22LR on humans.

    A friend of mine, his sister decided to commit suicide in front of her ex boyfriends house. They had recently broken up and she was despondent. She shot herself in the heart with a .22LR handgun.

    A passerby heard her screaming in her car. The hospital surgeon decided not to operate because the wound in the heart wall had clotted up and it was best to let nature heal the wound.

    She is fine today.

    If she had shot herself with a 38 or 45 the outcome would have been different.

    Certainly several unfortunate things happened in this story. Still, while some other calibers are indeed more powerful I have seen head wounds (pictures) of a 9" hunting knife lodged deeply in the brain and a broadhead arrow through the head. Both individuals survived. There will always be a "lucky" one.

    Suicides are another issue. I've been on scenes in which an attempt has failed, using a centerfire cartridge. Here, when we discuss caliber size and power, it's usually in a defensive concept. While a few of us still can't get past the concept that any defensive fire should immediately kill an attacker and obliterate his remains beyond recognition, most understand that merely ending the threat is the most prudent goal.
    I still think that most of us living a "safe" lifestyle (not out looking for trouble the way cops are required to do) could live ten lifetimes and not meet anyone who would continue an attack when faced with a well-executed rimfire defense. I bet if the individual whose skull appears in the images above had received those wounds as the result of such a defense instead of self-inflicting them, he still would have promptly stopped whatever he was doing that got him shot in the first place.

    Well 1/2 the stupid stuff I see people do is when they are intoxicated by a drug or some sort.... In those cases they wouldn't stop... So if your using a 22 you better have a longer barrel and well placed shots.... but i strongly prefer much larger bullets & centerfire for self defense... But no gun/bullet can replace common sense and removing ourselves from unsafe environments when we recognize them.

    I am not a lawyer. I don't think this thread is a HIPPA violation, but an aggressive plaintiff's attorney might feel otherwise. Just an FYI for the owners.

    Wonder what kind of 22 ammo was used?

    Its not a HIPPA violation. None of the 18 PHI's have been violated.

    Evidently he couldn't get it through his thick skull.

    I think it could be a HIPPA violation.
    We now know intimate medical details about this person, including X-Rays of his skull.

    The patient's name is probably available via his public conviction/ court records.

    I would take it down.

    It might even be some other type of privacy violation.
    Heck. I would not want people to see pictures from my colonoscopy even if they could not relate them to me.

    Considering what he did afterwards, I'd say the most unfortunate thing that happened was that he sucked at committing suicide.
