Shoot a side of beef. Watch it not fall over. Humans are made out of flesh, not steel plates so that argument is irrelevant. The body absorbs the impact of a bullet differently than a steel plate. You've seen to many movies.Originally posted by: Nebor

physics? if the person firing the gun doesn't get knocked down....Originally posted by: Nebor
PingSpike, I don't know where you got the idea that bullets don't knock you down. The primary goal of a bullet is to knock someone down (incapacitate), that's what's led to all our great modern bullet technologies (ie: designer hollowpoints.)
people fall down after getting shot because of the shock...damage, fear, etc..
And gun nut claims backed up by physics
Tom Clancy also mentioned the way bullets were improperly portrayed on the big screen and how it caused a lot of anguish for rookie police officers who emptied a clip into crack addict only to have him keep coming.
I think I believe Tom Clancy, physics and a bunch of gun advocates over some guy on a message board who probably hasn't even fired a gun before.
The original dawn of the dead portrayed bullets accurately. Zombies were shot with assault rifles (in the chest) and the bullets merely passed through them, the zombies barely flinched. Given the zombies don't feel any sort of pain, that is realistic.
