Posted by buckshot00: More then half of the shootings I ear and read about the "victim" goes to the hospital and gets "treated for gunshot wounds". 2 in the chest is usually the "victim was pronounced dead".
Pax addressed that one.

I would not conclude that lung shots are any more likely to be fatal than shots to leg arteries.

I have heard reports of many gangbangers getting shot in the legs and abdominal region... my guess is poor training.
Are you aware of this?

A relevant excerpt:
Nearly 40% of the offenders had some type of formal firearms training, primarily from the military. More than 80% "regularly practiced with handguns, averaging 23 practice sessions a year," the study reports, usually in informal settings like trash dumps, rural woods, back yards and "street corners in known drug-trafficking areas."

One spoke of being motivated to improve his gun skills by his belief that officers "go to the range two, three times a week [and] practice arms so they can hit anything."
