Re: "POINT BLANK" Question
If you shoot em in the base of the skull, it's instant and you wont mess up the cape or skull plate (assuming you may want to have one mounted). The 22LR won't exit on a point blank "back o the head" shot.
Other bigger calibers could maybe do irrepairable damage to the cape, unless you shoot for the body.............but that's not nearly as instant. A heart shot is not nearly as humane as a base of the brain shot IMO.
