No worries bro.

As I got older, and started questioning several of the "facts" I was told as a young soldier (among them the neck snapping if you are hit in the helmet), I wanted to be able to prove them wrong in order to provide accurate and factual information to my soldiers.

Other interesting myths are .50 cal projectiles ripping off limbs on a near-miss, guns do not need lube, 5.56 rounds will travel along bone (ie a round hitting the thigh and exiting the neck), a shot to the heart kills instantaneously etc etc ad nauseum.

A lot of this misinformation I believe stem from people who want to appear knowledgeable, who really don't have a clue. Not referring to you.

being in LE and not mil my experience of shooting people, or even at people, is well, none. and that's a good thing. I've been in the process of pulling a trigger a half dozen times before the other end of my sight picture came to their senses. now shooting vehicles, glass, ballistic gel, and a vast assortment of other items and media, I have a bit. we do that to minimize the Learn from your mistakes train of thought. let's show what can be a mistake and address it now, while in a controlled environment.

Sorry if my words seemed aggressive to you.
I just seen that myth a zillion times in my neighbor and guess I kindda overly reacted to it.

Again, sorry if I offended you.
