Right ;-)
And I suppose that Dr. K is not an option these days...
If a revolver is used, should the bullet be a hollow point? Seems I read somewhere that a hollow point doesn't have a clean exit but ricochets around doing LOTS of damage. Guess it would be helpful to be sitting out in the middle of nowhere so that, if death were not immediate, one would eventually bleed to death? Better to go through the roof of the mouth or try for the heart?
