    So are thorax/throat shots. If yer lucky , ya can hit the brain stem. Otherwise , blood runs down the airways into the lungs and they drown in their own blood.

    I recall reading a story about some Afghani Taliban fighters charging our troops in combat and these fighters just kept coming at them, partially because they were hopped up on some opiate, and they couldn't drop them. They started shooting at the pelvic region to blow out the guys hips and shatter his femur...finally dropped the guy. Head or legs...will always get them.

    Yep..pelvic shots can really cause some damage...shattered pelvic region might cause one to stop standing up and major injuries if rounds hit the right areas...

I guess we will just try to ban away the bad people and the bad things they do until we run out of things to ban.
    Plate armor level 4 can be heavy...don't ask me how I know this...

    I've had a shattered pelvis and been shot in the leg. Both took the starch out of my sails.
