just a short note...I think the basic issue is that the chaotic nature of a gunshot wound with all the variables will be different EVERY time. Guy one with a shot to the pelvis is going to react differently from guy 2 based on everything from anatomy to ballistics.

I believe the idea behind using the hip/pelvis as a target it the mechanical effect of a broken pelvis/femur. Similar to a head shot as a CNS stop, and the COM as generally speaking a exsanguination ( bleed out ) stop..the pelvis is often seen as a mechanical stop. You cant keep coming at me if your femoral head is no longer in the acetabulum...read as leg bone no longer connected to hip bone! hehehe
