... you corroborate your observations by studying him at close range? Besides,
already it seems to me that certain unmistakable signs are visible; I mean that
strange physical phase which Dr. Lamour dwells on: the symmetry of feature and
limb, the curiously spiritual beauty. Do you not notice these? Or is my sight so dim
that I only imagine it?" "He is certainly symmetrical—and—in a certain way—

The 12-gauge shell has a transparent hull closed by a plastic disk and contains
15 rubber pellets, a felt wad, and a plastic over-the- powder wad. ... Experiments
by Missliwetz and Lindermann on corpses revealed that the pellets can cause
fatal wounds at distances of 4 to 5 meters if the individual shot is wearing only
light clothing.12 These authors concluded that these pellets required a velocity of
130 to 140 m/s ... Winchester tracer rounds were introduced in 1965 in 12 gauge

No sights were used, the gunner relying on tracers to mark the trajectory of his
rounds. In effect he was moving a hose of tracers. He relied on this visual aid to
bring the trajectory onto the target and to keep it there. Lewis gunners used
hosepiping because at very close range (500 yds and less) it was as efficient as
eyeshooting and required less skill. To support it, the usual proportion of tracers
was one to four rounds of ball in a Lewis gun. The key argument favouring high
muzzle ...
