(Single Best Answer) Question 64: In a firearm injury, there is burning, blackening, tatttooing around the wound, along with cherry red colour of the surronding tissues and is cruciate in shape, the injury is ?
A) Close shot entry
B) Close contact exit
C) Contact shot entry
D) Distant shot entry
Answer: C) Contact shot entry
Explanation
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.
