    But I have to question the odds of her hitting a random passer by on the upper floor of her home. Unless the abusive spouse happened to have called a plumber to work on the shower drain and she didn't realize it.

    •  Bullets don't stop at one wall. (0+ / 0-)

      First, we loaded the box with 12 sheets of 5/8 sheetrock, which is also called wallboard in some areas.
       Since it takes 2 sheets per wall, this is the thickness of 6 interior walls.

       Why twelve? It seemed like a good number and I thought it might stop most rounds.
       I was about to learn something.

       First, I shot it with my M-17 S&W, .22 LR HP. It penetrated 6 sheets and bounced off the seventh sheet.
       That would be the equivalent of 3 interior walls.
       And that's only a .22 pistol.

      Long story short, we proceeded to shoot several rounds and they all penetrated all 12 sheets and exited.

      Now get yourself a song to sing, and sing it till you're done.
