I don't know if you live on a ranch or have any relatives or good friends that do, but if you don't mind performing autopsies, you might watch for opportunities there
I sometimes use carpet to simulate hide and bullets perform more true to form in VERY wet newspaper rather than on the dry side. Other than that, ballistic gel is a good option. Your wet newspaper, though, will give decent results for BEHIND the shoulder if no bones are involved in the real life situation.....Rich
