He opens the closet door and finds himself staring down the barrel of a .38 revolver,” Walton County Sheriff Joe Chapman told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

The woman fired six bullets, five of which hit Paul Ali Slater in the face and neck area, Chapman said. But Slater, who has arrests dating to 2008 and was released from jail in August, was still conscious.


Slater was transported to Gwinnett Medical Center and is expected to survive, the sheriff said.
How do you live with 5 gun shot wounds to the face and neck area by a 38 ? is a 38 not good for self defence now? maybe she used the j frame up close and low fps? It makes me rethink carrying a 38 for a bug...

What are the FPS ratings from a 1-3/8 barrel from standard fmj rounds at 10 feet?
