.45 wound

The story here is supposedly this guy was trying to prove his 1911 would go out of battery during a contact shot, so he pressed it to his forearm and pulled the trigger. Turns out it didn't go out of battery. 'MURKA!

When a round is in battery, the round is fully seated in the chamber, slide locked, ready to fire. Supposedly the pressure of his arm on the front of the barrel should have kept the slide from locking forward and kept the gun out of battery.

You can see what could be some powder burns around the entrance, I'm not sure if they are or not though. You can definitely see the outline of the frame around it.

what the hell would a hollow point or any other round otherwise have anything to do with powder burns? Remember the muzzle of the gun was pressed against his arm so the burns caused by the exiting gasses would actually be only visible on the inside of the wound. as for the exit wound a standard 45acp round is subsonic and only travels at 930fps so it is not going to leave a nice clean exit wound hollowpoint or otherwise, furthermore what the hell was this guy thinking? anybody that knows anything about firearms ( like me) would tell you that it is theoreticly impossible for a semi automatic firearm operated by a gas blowback design (like a standard 1911 45) to go out of battery when the muzzle is pressed against a surface prior to firing? Thats almost as stupid as saying that you can cause a misfire by pressing your thumb on the back of the slide before firing. ( I strongly suggest not trying it unless you have no need for your thumb anymore) The only design flaw of a 45 is that it has an inertia spring controlled firing pin and a heavy jar to the weapon or a drop of a few feet on a hard surface may cause the firing pin to move forward and ignite a round if there is one in battery, and it wont matter if the hammer is in full cock, half cock or not cocked at all. Kind of the same reason why you only carry 5 rounds in a SAA with a fixed firing pin on the hammer, so the hammer rests on an empty chamber.

Yeah what he said...

Also, one of the reasons the exit wound is as crazy and ragged is because the gas from the gun were directed straight into the wound cavity.
