    Yeah, screw that. I’m guessing they used a light powder load at least judging by the fact that guy isn’t doubled over in pain.

    He was lucky the first two times. The guy in the second picture looks like he’s going for a head shot next.

    Also nice is the film footage of the woman holding up a sheet of bullet-proof glass in front of her face while her husband shoots a gun directly at her head.
