Gee, I don't know about that. The neatest murder I ever saw was done with a .25 auto with one shot, 15 foot range by a very angry wife. Husband was reported to have said, "I'm hurt real bad", then sat down on couch and died.

I wanted to hire her to teach marksmanship but we had to charge her with murder.

It's quite true that folks HAVE been killed by .25 auto as well as .22 short and other less than impressive calibers. But overall the statistics aren't good . . .

My husband is the first aid officer for his plant (somebody found out that he was a BSA troop leader and took the first aid course). One morning one of the guys from the back of the plant came strolling in with a .25 bullet lodged under the skin of his skull right between the eyes. He said that his common-law wife had had a quarrel with him and shot him the night before. Hubby referred him on to the industrial clinic; he came back in about an hour with a bandaid over the spot where they cut it out.

He went home after work and threw her out.

There is a postscript . . . about six months later we heard through the grapevine that this rather short-tempered lady had taken up with another man and . . . somewhat predictably . . . had a quarrel with him too. Only this time she used a kitchen knife, and the object of her affections was Tango Uniform before the police got there.

The employee's only comment: "She was a d@mn mean woman, but she sure could cook."
