    Abstract

    It was determined that tempered glass automobile windows may severely influence the trajectory of .38 Special projectiles. In replicating an actual case situation, deflections as great as 26.4° were observed with jacketed hollow-point ammunition, and as high as 10.8° for lead ammunition.
