    Abstract

    Just as an exit wound can be shored by firm material pressed against the skin, so can an entry wound. The configuration of supported entrance wounds is examined in relation to type of shoring material and weapon caliber, by using anesthetized pigs. Corresponding wounds with the same shoring materials used as intermediate targets are also studied.
