CAN RICOCHETS BOUNCE OFF A BODY?
Grazing gunshots act in the same way as ricochets – the body alters the path of the projectile and the shot lurches off course. But for a projectile to rebound in the same direction in which it was fired is rare – at least when it is a human body that has been hit. Where some animals are concerned, that’s not always the case: the thick hide of wild boars has been known to deflect bullets, while in 2015 a Texan man was wounded after firing at an armadillo. The bullet bounced off its protective shell and hit him.
