First, let me state the obvious, this video is for research and entertainment purposes only. Great American Outdoors, YouTube, or the producers of the video below, do NOT intend for you to shoot anyone, or, even attempt an experiment like this at home. The video was professionally done and all proper safety measures were taken to prevent anyone from actually being harmed.
If you have ever wondered what would happen when someone gets shot in the face at point blank range with a Glock 34, firing 9mm ammunition, this is about as realistic as it gets.
The guys at GY6 Slow Mo had this to say about their little experiment:
Time to start the “In The Face” Series. I’ll be testing different calibers to see what happens when Casualty Carl my ballistic dummy gets Shot In The Face. First up is the Glock 34 shooting 9mm ammunition
About the Glock 34:
Obtaining the greatest accuracy for target shooting was the main reason for the development of the GLOCK 34 which has an extended barrel, greater slide dimensions, and unmatched reliability in a 9x19mm pistol. This highly accurate pistol has found widespread use as a competitive pistol for USPSA, IDPA, IPSC, GSSF and other sport shooting organizations.
About the ammunition courtesy of Wikipedia:
The 9×19mm Parabellum is a firearms cartridge that was designed by Georg Luger and introduced in 1902 by the German weapons manufacturer Deutsche Waffen und Munitionsfabriken (DWM) (German Weapons and Munitions Factory) for their Luger semi-automatic pistol. For this reason, it is designated as the 9mm Luger by the Sporting Arms and Ammunition Manufacturers’ Institute (SAAMI), and the 9 mm Luger by the Commission Internationale Permanente pour l’Epreuve des Armes à Feu Portatives (CIP)
