A Quick Question...

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Is it possible for a fatal GSW to the chest to be externally bloodless (as in 100%)? If so, how many times have

you seen this in the field?

Thank you.

Only in people who are blood type AQ+. Their blood evaporates on contact with air.

Only if they might have been already dead when they received the "fatal " GSW. :gun:

Was the question a serious question?

I mean a bloodless gunshot wound is like an Artesian, yep I've seen em.

I mean if the bullet is attached to a really thick piece of cloth saturated in quick-clot you might only see a drop or two?

Wheres the original poster to let us know more of what his question is about.

There's got to be more to the question especially with a forum name like Researcher. I'll bet he's writing a book about bloodless wounds.

Come on back OP, we're just having a bit of fun with your question, it's nothing personal. Or maybe it's some bloodless massacre of your question.

I always thought it depended on whether or not the victim was standing on his/her head whilst getting shot. Am I wrong on this?

Don't forget they need to be whistling dixie when they are shot, that way they suck all that blood back in.

I remember a training video we were shown, titled "Da bloodless gunshot wound, they do exist" by PDiddy and Big Momma, you can get it on Netflix under "Urban legends and all things great and small"

Without much knowledge on the subject, I'd say it's fairly possible that a GSW, even with no external bleeding, can cause an internal bleeding and cause death? Does it make sense?
