A) Close shot entry
B) Close contact exit
C) Contact shot entry
D) Distant shot entry
|Answer: C) Contact shot entry|
Contact wounds characteristically have soot on the outside of the skin, and muzzle imprint, or laceration of the skin from effects of gases. Contact wounds of airguns usually lack these features.
Intermediate, or close-range, wounds may show a wide zone of powder stippling, but lack a muzzle imprint and laceration. The area of powder stippling will depend upon the distance from the muzzle.
Distant range wounds are lacking powder stippling and usually exhibit a hole roughly the caliber of the projectile fired.
