I'm not allowed to carry in Philly, but PA residents with a concealed carry license are.This confuses me because last I heard, you weren't allowed to carry a firearm in Philadelphia.
I read this as 'Philadelphia may be hazardous to your health'!"A Philadelphia man taking a smoke break outside his home "turned the tables" on an armed would-be robber when he pulled out his own legal gun and fatally shot him, according to police."
Moral of the story?
Smoking may be hazardous to your health.
It could've been a grazing shot. The caliber isn't the issue so much as the angle of the bullet and what part of the head. I had a victim once who was shot in the head with a 9mm, and it glanced off his forehead. He got up and walked over to the ambulance and wanted to climb inside, but we had him get on the stretcher first and we put him in there. (policy) There are many documented examples of bullets of various calibers not penetrating the skull due to angle of the bullet, including up to 8mm mauser in WW two. I actually talked to the vet that this happened to. He said it fractured his skull but didn't penetrate, due to the angle. There was a case of a mobster back a hundred years ago of another mobster who shot at the back of his head 6 times with a 38, but all 6 shots did not penetrate. OTOH, I've seen the results of a .25 acp at a direct angle to the forehead. It penetrated the skull and the guy died.Shot in the head and still able to return fire? I wonder what caliber he was hit with...

Did someone at least get to eat the Hereford or was it off the the rendering plant?In 39 years as a "country cop" I've put down hundreds of injured animals. (sounds like bologna, but it's not) I quickly learned placement on heads shots is every thing. Shot a Hereford bull laying in the traffic lane, apparently unable to rise, right between the eyes, at close range with my 357. He stood up, second shot was higher and it was lights out.
