Suicide by .44 Caliber Magnum Revolver to the Head

Absolutely nasty photo of an old man who committed suicide by a shot to the head through his mouth with a .44 Caliber Magnum Revolver, the Dirty Harry special edition one. The bullet wasn’t having any of them and ripped its way through old man’s skull blasting it open from within.

I’m a little bit torn on this one again. If the power of a .44 Caliber Magnum Revolver is such that it blasts man’s skull open leaving a massive, gashing fissure there, how is it possible the eye seems rather untouched. The skull around the eyes is all warped and deformed, but eyes themselves seem in pretty decent condition. Wouldn’t the pressure from the gun shot that forced the skull to explode from within make the eyes, which are much fined that skull bones explode too? I mean, if his eyes were on his ass (aka far away from the blast), I’d understand. But how could the eyes survive a gun shot from a .44 Caliber revolver that destroy half of the skull? I don’t get it. Do you?

  1. The cavitation (pressure wave) will go the path of least resistanec, if there is already a hole through the roof of the mouth that’s where it will go first then followed by the exit would at the top of the head, in that case the eyes will be untouched.

  2. What Marc says makes sense. That’s a pretty horrific picture! I just viewed ” Famous Cup in Ass Video” and that’s one I believed is faked! Why would you do that?!

  3. I’m not anatomy expert, but one of the eyes DID get damaged, didn’t it? I mean I can’t find the guy’s left eye (his left) at all; forget explosions, that eyeball has vanished. As for the opposite eye, it does seem to have been forced away from the burst of the gunshot, so damage was dealt to that area as well.
    I say it’s real.

  4. cavitation is a fluid dynamics term describing the phenomena of a liquid “boiling” in fluid due to low pressure. Marc is correct in his thought though. the pressure wave (not due to the bullet but the gasses exiting the barrel) expands first in the mouth following the bullet hole in the nose cavity expand this area eventually ripping the nose, and up through the bone underneath the brain. this pressure wave is transmitted to the brain and out the top of the head following the already weakened skull due to the bullet. making a huge mess. the eyes are protected by the orbs that they sit in basically a boney pocket and the pressure wave is deflected around them. if the orbit is weak or fractured then all bets are off.

  5. the suitable physics concept to this is the bernoulli principle which states that when the speed of the fluid increases the internal pressure decreases which causes the mans face to move in

  6. Yeah, that’s why .50 calibre is illegal to use in war against human targets as per the Geneva convention. Of course they still do it though.. Quite a few videos of people popping from a .50.

  7. I Eat Koalas,
    Lol of course it’s real, he has even uploaded more and gave interviews. “Why would you do that?!”, because some people like putting weird things in their orifices, and sometimes accidents happen. Nothing more. Just be thankful we now have the internet to view other people’s mistakes.

    I wouldn’t be surprised if someone’s had a jar bust in their asshole more than once on this planet, in fact I WOULD be surprised if he was the FIRST one! People are fucking crazy.

  8. For a man, the point of election (the place where a muzzle is placed proximate to trigger pull) is usually the temple of the dominant hand or in the mouth. In this case the point of election was in the mouth, probably with at least a few inches of barrel pointed cephalad with the lips pursed tensely around the barrel. The majority of damage as has been noted is not by the projectile but by the combustion gasses themselves. While smokeless powder is said to burn as opposed to detonate such as a high powered, brissant explosive with high velocity like C4, it does burn rapidly enough to cause as has been said, a cavitation wave which follows the lines of least resistance. If the slug were removed from the cartridge prior to firing, while the damage would have been different, there would have been similarities in terms of soft tissue damage and bone fracturing if present. Though not seen here but would be evident upon removal of the calvareum and examination of brain and remaining skull, exit wounds cause the skull to bevel out. Had the shot been from outside the skull directed inward, the beveling of the bone would be on the inner table. This is due to the nature of complex bone of which skull is comprised and the dynamics of the transfer of energy to such bone. The relative “normal” appearance of the eye might not be so normal under the microscope where retinal hemorrhaging and tearing of the vitreous humor may have occurred. Nasty things those bullets!

  10. Bullets go in through a small entry hole and build up a pressure wave of pulped body material as they travel through the body by they time they leave then the exit wound may be the size of a dinner plate dependent on type of ammunition so in cross section it would look like a cone shaped wound where the pointed end is the entry wound.

    Other ammunition though will tumble, ricocheting around inside the body and doing massive unpredictable tissue and bone damage. An Armalite rifle is an example of a weapon that will produce this effect in which the bullet may enter perhaps the upper front chest then bounce off the shoulder blade down onto the pelvis and out over the knee.

  11. I think that the reason why the eyes remain (almost) intact is the fact that they’re balls filled with compressible liquid. The pressure wave is absorbed by the compression of the liquid preserving the eye ball if it’s not damaged by the bullet directly. Bone is not very flexible, so it breaks. Muscular tissue and skin stretches until the point of rupture.

    1. Negative, sir, as liquid, by definition, is non-compressible. The sclera, which is the outer part of the eye, is a flexible membrane like skin and, as such, will allow a good portion of the energy imparted on one side of the eye, to be dissipated somewhat by this flexibility. That, coupled with the eye’s somewhat protected location (the orbital socket) would greatly mitigate a huge amount of pressure, rendering the eye virtually unscathed, although, as mentioned before, under a microscope, the more delicate structures of the internal eye would still suffer greatly. Just kidding, I dont know what the fuck I’m talking about. Or do i?

  12. Well Dirty Harry did quote: ” this is the 44 Magnum, the most powerful hand gun in the world and it would blow you head clean off! ”
    Hay DH, it don’t look very clean to me. It looks rather, messy!
    Boy, this poor motherfucker ate that bullet!
    Lol! I guess depending how the gun was pointed at you.

  13. The mechanism of the bullet is much like pulling a napkin through a clenched fist. There is slight resistance, but the surrounding materials are pulled along with the afflicted area, giving a more visual example of how the forces are absorbed by the skull.

  14. I know a guy who lives up north in Canada on a res and he tried to kill himself and ended up with a steel plate in his mouth, he was one weird, fucked up, double digit IQ that drank 25 hours a day and one day he got drunk and took pills, did some shnay, smoked some pot and meth and then tried to kill himself again by putting a small caliber pistol in his mouth and firing BUT he was too fucked to remember he had a steel plate on the roof of his mouth and it hit the plate then did a ricochet out the side and blew his cheek and half his chin off, fuck never laughed so hard when he told me what he did. Uhhhhh what was the topic here again????? Oh ya, the damage is usually the skull cap blows off and the size and damage to the brain depends mostly on (caliber ofc) and where the gun was in relation to distance from the roof of your mouth. Many times the face isnt even damaged unless you aim straight up. The last monkey oops I mean movie I seen showed a really good example.
