Is a .22LR round to the head enough to kill yourself? Or would it just make you retarded?
it PROBABLY would, but you'd probably miss the brain stem and live. Honestly I'd get a cheap bubba gun 12ga and blow my head off, it's gonna work as long as you dont shoot straight up and tear your face off.
shut up you fucking retard. stop talking out of your ass about shit you don't understand, that's why people don't like you.
OP, the only question mark is whether or not the round penetrates your skull. if it does, it'll bounce around and destroy your brain. if it doesn't, it'll ride around the outside of your skull and leave some weird fucked up scarring. 22lr is a truly disgusting cartridge
Has a chance of either, if your medical knowledge is low, there's a lower chance of you hitting the right spot, study locations in your brain a little bit and make sure you get the perfect trajectory for maximum lethality.
zipguns are shit, even for suicides.
.22 is powerful enough at point blank to penetrate the skull
it actually does more damage to the brain than other rounds because unlike other rounds it doesn't penetrate the skull twice causing it to bounce around in the brain case
Behind the ear, not the temple. The temple is quite thick, the bullet can deduct and tear off a good chunk if your face.
Oh and not a hollow point or was cutter, .22 is low power enough to bounce off the other side of your skull, that's plenty enough to kill you.
Oh and don't load more than one round in your gun, you don't want a nogunz to find it and ND in their foot or whatever.
Take a bunch of aspirin and call 911 to get your organs.
Good luck and praise Khorne!
>The .22-caliber slug destroyed the section of the brain responsible for his disabling obsessive-compulsive behavior without causing any other brain damage
It could even make you less retarded
As weak as it is, it's still a bullet and can still penetrate your skull. There have been many incidents of failed suicides via use of .22 though and there is a chance you could become potato. Your best bet is to sever the medula. Gun in mouth pointed straight back, angled slightly upwards. I don't suggest you do it but if you're truly set on offing yourself, at least you'll be informed. Godspeed, brother.
Or, you could just not kill yourself OP. I had an autistic friend try to make a permanent decision based off of a temporary problem and ended up having the round fail to penetrate his temple and travel downwards through his mouth. Shit fucked his tongue up, so it was removed, and he's in an even shitier predicament now
Shot myself 2 times with a 22 semi auto and did not die. Had amnesia for a few weeks and still have bullets in my brain. Not retarded but if you insist on going an hero for the fuck of it, go with a desert eagel 50 cal or a shot gun with buck shot or a slug. Then again. there is the option of being less of a pussy and dealing with your problems head on. maybe get on some good meds and see a professional. Cuz /b/ doesn't care about your trollage so either do it faggot and put it on the internet at a tinyurl or be great justice and stop crying while you fap.
My lifes good dude. Nothing going wrong at all right now. I'm calm. Just too apathetic about life overall. I'm in college, have a girlfriend, great future career, I just truly don't enjoy anything. No big problem, just basically bored every moment of my life except some fairly rare moments.
Self reflecting much dude? I have no big problem. My life is good overall. Meds aren't an option, if they were, I'm sure they'd work. My depression is clinical, not emotional based on some event. I've been this way as long as I can remember. Fuck off with your faggot ass assumptions.
In any calibre, open your mouth, push back to the top of your throat (not down it, but not up too high either).
The whole Idea is to destroy the medulla oblongata. Once that's gone your shuffling this mortal coil right off.
The only problem is getting to it.
It's easier from the back, but unless you have tentacles instead of arms, that won't work.
All that said, I wouldn't trust anything below 0.38.
Shit, go borrow a 0.44 mag or a 0.454 Cassull. THat way, even if you miss, you won't miss.
With a 0.22 LR, you better aim right.
Do NOT blow your face off! You aim for brain.
Don't forget working on your technique, trigger pull, and cheap plinking for the hell of it.
I don't know who the fuck would call 0.22 LR disgusting.
Obviously some asshole that never had a Ruger 10/22 (and also had the pleasure of customizing it).
Unless you're shooting with a giant calibre and have a slightly backward aim, all you're going to do is sever your optic nerves and maybe, just maybe, give yourself a shitty lobotomy.
Not much vital, in the lethal sense, just behind your forehead.
Fuck, that's what actually happened to the real Lt.....(what's his fuck...the douche in Band of Brothers...but the actual guy).
Putting a pistol to your temple is a good way to go blind, but a horrid way to off yourself.
Again: mouth, back, get to the mudulla oblongata.
Yes, it would kill you because there isn't enough energy to exit your skul...it will just bounce around destroying your brain.
>INB4 .22lr is a pussy round
I've killed black hills mule deer with a .22lr
I wouldn't advise it. Probably will end in vegetation or retardation, or worse, a grotesque disfigured face you'll have to explain to everyone you meet for the rest of your life.
Why do you want to kill yourself, OP?
a 1000fps pellet gun is better for practicing than a 22, cost a little more but ammo is a lot cheaper so it equals out.
you have to hold it on target longer due to slower muzzle velocity, hell my gamo kicks more than a bolt action 22lr (though i wouldn't call it a kick)
also 22 is one of the most effecient burning cartridges there is
i think he meant the amount of damage the round is capable of doing on a human skull is disgusting. the ballistics of the round.
>it'll bounce around and destroy your brain
the way a .22lr round can bounce around on the inside of your head and literally turn your brain to swiss cheese.
>> bounce around
It ain't a 0.223 with a big casing behind it...
I'm not saying that what you describe *can't* happen, I'm saying that if you're in a bad enough mood to want to off yourself you don't want to get maimed and live.
>Is a .22LR round to the head enough to kill yourself? Or would it just make you retarded?
Since you are asking here you are clearly too stupid to figure out how to kill yourself....
If you are going to kill yourself, you should at leats do it with style. chain yourself to a fire hydrant and speed away in a car. Or maybe tie a noose to a parachute, get in a police chase, then parasail your corpse down the road on the 5 o'clock news.
The operative word being: *can*.
It's not a guarantee. And about that bounce:
- what if it hits your jaw?
- a vertebrae?
- a particularly hard part of skull?
- what if all that bullet ballerina shit only hits your forebrain?
Then, you're still breathing.
You are already retarded if you don't know the answer to this. Try it faggot.
you talking 22 winchester mag, 22 hornet, m16 ar15 rounds as they are all chambered .223?
the more umph a bulltet has with muzzle velocity and grain the more likely it is to clear the other side of the skull
And how many of those are murders?
I'm not saying it's not a deadly round.
It certainly is.
I'm saying that if you want to die, you want to limit chance and make sure you're gone when you pull the trigger.
Unless you really know what you're doing and have "luck" on your side, 0,22 LR ain't the round to use if you've got a choice.
You need to practice with .22's so you build up resistance.
A lead .22 will flatten on your skull because your skull is thicker than .22 inches wide.
But don't use the ones that are coated with Copper. Those are made with heavier powder charges, and a different primer composition which makes them move faster down the barrel. The copper coating is there to slow the bullet down as it runs down the barrel because otherwise it would literally explode as it hit the air when it leaves the front of the gun.
>When I said 0.223, I meant the 0.556 NATO.
>0.223, I meant the 0.556 NATO.
>0.223, 0.556 NATO.
I was going to suggest you take yourself out with a nuclear bomb. But since you are obviously retarded I am afraid you might fuck it all up...
the temple is the thinnest part of your skull, and has a major artery right behind it. even if the bulklet doesn't hit anythinng besides the frontal lobe it's still going to fuck up the artery and you'll bleed out in a couple minutes
The diameter of the actual bullet is the same.
So, they're all "22".
But there's a fuck of a lot of difference between a 0.22 LR and a 5.56 NATO.
Mainly how much fucking powder is behind them.
So, when people rock up about how much "22s" "tumble" it gets important real quick.
>Who the fuck puts a "0" in front of .223, or 5.56?
Engineers do that....
I wouldn't trust it.
Yes it can, it can also not penetrate and deflect around your skull if you get a shitty angle. Also youd want to cross hemispheres so you don't gabby giffords yourself, but thats not ideal for killing yourself either. So no. Hang yourself or park a shitty old car in your garage or something don't become another gun statistic for fascists to use.
it isn't a hollow point you tard, hollow points fragment instead of deforming on impact.
all that kinetic energy went into fragmentation instead of penetration
i don't venture to the k board, so i don't know if there are tutorials for your modifying your bb's to be hollow point.
when i read bb i think .177 steal copper clad
>Is a .22LR round to the head enough to kill yourself? Or would it just make you retarded?
Hard to say it really depends on where in the brain you get shot. If it hits your brainstem it would probably kill you.
Anywhere else would probably result in some degree of brain damage although not necessarily enough to turn you into a tard (pic related, Phineas Gage).
The moral of the story is that you should aim for the heart (although with a .22 you may not be able to get through the sternum).
This. I have a friend who's younger brother tried to commit suicide with a .22 and lived. The bullet severed his optical nerves and fucked up his frontal lobe. Now he's blind and semi-retarded/angry nigger.
This. .22 is light and as such has a higher velocity. Velocity is where you get your penetration. I've seen 22 penetrate a frying pan and .45 just leave a dent in the exact same pan. 45s are just heavy and slow.
Yes you did. And I quote: Anon: "They tumble as they exit the barrel because of the rotational force exerted by the lands and grooves of the barrel comes in direct conflict with the resistance of the air outside, and coupled with the pull of gravity, which, according to Einstein is especially strong when you are moving fast, the bullet will tumble end over end and fly in random patterns."
Faggot. Don't deny you were at least THINKING that...
You're cute when you think you know something.
I'm only adequate, but I'll bet you a day's pay that my shot group is smaller than yours.
Oh, right, you can pick the weapon and the loads.
I base info in the following three paragraphs on a 1986 article by Jim Sullivan of Armalite Div of Fairchild, "An Interesting Twist", in a special issue of SWAT magazine dedicated to the M16/AR-15.
The 55 gr fmj (M193) did not tumble through the air with the original 1 turn in 14" twist. It did yaw almost immediately, according to Jim Sullivan, upon entering flesh. With the 1:14 twist, it was just barely stabilized.
The twist was increased with the introduction of the M16A1 to 1 turn in 12". The bullet traveled slightly farther in to flesh before beginning to yaw.
It was this yawing that was called "tumbling", and many misinterpreted this to mean the bullet tumbled through the air. It did not.
Of course, the later faster twists, 1:7 for the A2, 1:9 for many AR-15's, and even 1:10, all stabilize M855 62 gr bullets (as well as M193 55 gr). However, in the slower M16A1's 1:12 twist the 62 gr was not stabilized.
This caused problems during the months leading up to Desert Storm. Some Nat Guard troops were still equipped with older A1's with the slow 1:12 twist, and M855 62gr bullets were not stabilized, would keyhole in targets. Their rifles had to be replaced with newer A2's.
>solid steel bb
nigger do you realize what it takes to make a steel bb fragment? woodchucks don't have thick skulls, a good bb gun/air rifle is plenty to take one out at your average backyard range, point blank is nothing
you do realize the higher the surface area something has the more kinetic energy it has to have to penitrate
go buy a high speed camera and some winchester 22wmr rounds (what i used) and shoot at a woodchuck skull at 125 yards
>spend $2k on gold plated tiger striped Deagle brand Deagle
>hold the beauty that is the gold tiger Deagle
>will to live intensifies
That 2 grand might just save your life.
You shoulda seen her...walking up some stairs with the sun behind her leggings, and still that classic "gap".
The only problem is that she's always angry....and mean to her dog.
Even my wife can't get her to smile (which is saying something).
Because OP is a Faggot.
Hopefully, he's already done the deed and livestreamed it so we can watch it on Liveleak.
Anyone who fucking kills themselves who isn't diagnosed with Cancer or some horrible disease that's going to kill you miserably already is an idiot.
If you have ANY chance of getting one more piece of pussy in this life, you should stay alive, for THAT, my friends is what our sole purpose is...
Op why not just jump off a cliff or a building? Or you could fuck with microwave transformers, the voltage in those things will kill you instantly. I accidentally got shocked by a microwave capacitor once, I don't know how I survived
>poor OP is contemplating suicide and a few of us have turned this into a troll thread
If every nigger on /b/ that started a an hero thread actually offed themselves, there wouldn't be anyone left to buy Pocky and Oona Holes from J-List.
>poor OP is contemplating suicide and a few of us have turned this into a troll thread
The real problem with OP is that he might not be yet worthy of dying....
>bounce around in the skull meme
For fuck sake this is the stupidest shit I've ever heard and it's in every single thread about this. A .22 is not going to fucking bounce around like some cartoon shit. It will still kill you just fine, not because it's bouncing around inside your head.
he was conscious but stroked out and talking for awhile afterwards too. Head shots are weird as fuck. I've shot lots of ducks in the head and watching them try and swim and dive you know theyre headshot because theyre stroked out. I've never kept one alive long enough to know, but I'd assume some of them would survive potatoed.
As far as the ricocheting and bone following bullets yes this happens. I have a college story.
>at house party kegger thing
>tit to tit packed two story house
>getting late getting drunk and bunch of undesirable types begin to show up
>find out next day two nigs had gotten into an argument over a shot glass in the kitchen

>nig proceeds shoot other nig in head
>bullet ricochets off nigs thick skull
>hits girl bystander in neck
was a cool party would go again.
but what if you pulled out the lead and pushed the casing with powder still in it through a super atomic bouncy ball?
also who here is old and for fun pulled the lead outy of 22lr's and pushed them through bars of soap and had mock wars with their friends?
Always nice to meet like-minded folks.
So, lets go shoot some shit.
Hopefully, I can convince my friend with the Blaser r93 to come.
The dude spent 2k on the weapon (straight-pull bolt action 0.308) and another two on optics (didn't look).
Now I'm only an OK shot. Nothing special. But from the bench ( with a bipod) and only 100 yards (yeah, I know, nothing), but I still pround to say that I put three rounds, same tear, that could be covered by a dime.
But, fuck it, even if it's just old 0.22s, we'll have a good time.
>So, lets go shoot some shit.
I'm gonna go shooting my newest gun tomorrow :D
>but his skull did not explode.
You need a REAL gun to do that shit...
I just realized that was his eyebrows shooped into a mustache
Nah, the .22 is beautiful. It's inexpensive, lightweight, subsonic, low residue, and low recoil. It's so smooth a child could fire it and most do. It will save your assistance from starvation. Fuck you can even hunt North American Deer with it.
But for killing yourself, nah. Don't kill yourself. Kill someone else and spend your life in prison, thinking about how much different your life could have been if you hadnt listened to idiots on the internet.
Just make a slam fire shotgun for $20-$30 and use that, you uninspired pussy
Lots of fun, original wood still on it too.
I remember when I was like 9 years old, my grandpa let me shoot it while we were hunting. Put me flat on my ass an had a nasty bruise for a few days lol.
Op dont kys.
But if you do then do something that benefits those you leave behind.
Take that 22 and go kill jd Rockefeller or murder some gang members or join the army or kill shillary or someone you really disagree with as a human.
Die for something pussy not nothing.
79 Nitrogen. 20.9 Oxygen. .01 other inert gas (Argon, Xenon, etc.).
Anything over 2 ATM of Oxygen can cause you to go into convulsions. That's why you can't go diving with pure Oxygen if you are planning on going deeper than 10m (33 feet).
It's not the convulsions that kill you. It's spitting out your mouthpiece and inhaling sea water than does the trick.
Well first of all if you're going to off yourself you bang yourself in your dorm like a real man and don't be such a faggot. Also, if you plan on kicking the chair make sure you write a note and make sure you tell your family and GF it's not their fault. If you're going out like a bitch and not facing your problems like you should do because you don't " have problems " because you're " not unhappy " and you just don't " enjoy things " or like to live, don't be such a selfish cunt. But guess what motherfucker, no one really wants to live, we just do it because that's why we are alive, to live it. But go ahead and be another faggot on /b/ and pull the trigger on daddy's .22 that will make you a vegetable. Don't be a selfish faggot and do yourself a favor and think about your life, because you are mentally so fucked it's crazy. I've watched people off themselves and didn't bat an eye, but you want to kill yourself simply because you don't " want to live " ? Guess what kiddo, that's life. Suck it up and do your part or pull the fucking trigger, don't bitch about it on here. God /b/ is full of pussies.
.22LR can kill someone but you need more than 1 bullet and if someone is thinking about suicide with it its not a good idea since in much of the case he could not shoot himself enought time.
Some of the best fun I ever had was down at the town dump with a Ruger 10/22 and a brick of ammo.
Me and my buddies fucked up a lot of critters, mostly rats, pigeons, possum, and prairie dogs.
If you can get some mushroom on the bullet (think hollow points), it'll do some big damage.
I never shot anything bigger than a possum with a .22, though. But if you hit them in the head, the round will go in neat and take out the back half of the skull.
>It's spitting out your mouthpiece
So that's what happened to her....
I was lucky, the strongest thing I shot a that age was a 12 gauge.
No 3 inch shells, a long fucking barrel, and a giant pad.
Of course, that set me up badly for when I, few decades later shot my friend's 7mm Rem Mag.
(I tried to resist the recoil)....I think I still have a bruise....
kill yourself already, faggot... quit being a coward and putting it off, you don't need a damn gun... jump off a bridge, building, or cliff.. dive off head first.. instant death. fucking darwin award needs to kick in properly, these faggots today are so pathetic they can't even figure out how to kill themselves properly. don't use a gun... us gun owners would like to keep our rights thanks.
Heres some info from a ballistics book. This is at close range.
Pah, if you got a body shot, you would have dropped it.
I've prolly murdered 1,000 pigeons when I was a kid. If you see some feathers fly when you shoot, the round went through a wing edge or tail. They spin if you get a body shot and drop like a rock.
The only problem with that is that your jugular, and coratid, are encased, with some nerves I think, in a fibrous sheath.
I can't remember if it's cartilage, sinew, both, or something else....
But the thing is, cutting through it is going to hurt so much that unless the knife is sharp and you do it fast you'll probably stop.
I'm not saying it can't be done, surely it can, I'm just say be aware.
If I ever killed myself I'd make it as scarring as possible
Ifor I where to kill myself
I would shove spaghetti up my ass and put in a massive vibrating but plug
Or the inflating but plug
Put on chastity dick clamp
Blast porn through my speakers
Tie a separate rope from my noose to my ceiling fan to make me spin or rock back and forth constantly
But that's just me
Don't do temple. It is the thinnest part of your skull. that direction will have full penetration with minimal damage to critical parts of your brain. Up through the back of the head/brain-stem is your best bed, direct center from your forehead downward.
Just use a shotgun ffs.
Just use piano wire noose tied to a balcony. Put noose around neck, then glue hands to sides of head.
After glue dries, jump off balcony.
Cops will think you ripped off own head.
.22 out of a rifle will have enough velocity to enter and exit your brain easy and honestly I'd bet a .22 out of a pistol would do the same. I'm not going to say its a powerful round because well its not lol. But It will get the job done.
you know what the fuck I mean.. but that's a good point.. It might slow the bullet down.. but now you have shrapnel penetrating the brain in multiple directions, causing even more widespread tissue destruction.. Good thinking anon.
