    Abstract

    Lead, antimony, and barium determinations have been made at entrance and exit orifices produced by firearms. Gunshots were made at seven different distances: 20, 40, 80, 200, 500, 1000, and 2500 cm using two kinds of ammunition. Our results demonstrate the usefulness of these elements to make a differential diagnosis between entrance and exit orifices produced by firearms; they are also useful to determine the distance between the firearm and the victim.
