This post is part 2 for my girl friend. The other day she asked what is a bullet and I posted the response here. After trying to give a concise explanation of what is a bullet I naturally wanted to explain to my beloved what a bullet does when it enters the body and what kind of damage to expect. I tend to be overly graphic when explaining such things and I’m usually cut off before making my point because I tend to get overly gorey with the description.
To keep it relatively simple and gore free I wanted to explain what happens when a bullet enters and leaves the body. There are different ballistic traits for different types of ammo. I wanted to show the better half what happens, the damage the bullet causes and how the bullets look like after they expand. The pictures below give a good overview of what happens without the bloody details. In the future I may or may not go in depth and show the bloody result of the aftermath of getting shot.
