SAO PAULO, Brazil (AP) -- A Brazilian woman who was shot six times in the head after an altercation with her ex-husband was out of the hospital and talking to the media on Saturday.

"I know this was a miracle," 21-year-old housewife Patricia Goncalves Pereira told Globo TV. "Now I just want to extract the bullets and live my life."

Pereira was shot Friday in the small city of Monte Claros, about 900 kilometers (560 miles) north of Sao Paulo, after quarreling with her former husband, who was reportedly upset because she refused to get back together with him. She was also shot once in the hand.

Doctors could not explain why the .32-caliber bullets did not penetrate Pereira's skull and didn't even need to be extracted immediately.

"I can't explain how something like this happened," surgeon Adriano Teixeira said, adding that the bullets were lodged under the woman's scalp.

The ex-husband was still at large.

I've seen someone shot point-blank in the head with a .45 do just fine. I'm sure not suprised that it can happen with a .32.

I've seen two walking-talking GS wounds to the head. One locally. Alive by an inch in both cases. Simply amazing.

+P 9mm is my personal minimum carry caliber.

And, in fact, many years later, he came within a boatlength of becoming President of the United States . . .

One genius in my hunting party shot a buck in the head with a 30-06 last week and knocked him down. As he was reaching for his knife to begin the gutting process the deer jumped up and ran away - no blood, no trail. A skull is not a reliable target.

.380 trumps .25...:shock:

Lumpy Lambert in gun-pointing standoff with would-be robber!

Knox County Commission member and car dealer Greg "Lumpy" Lambert says he grew suspicious Saturday when a customer didn't price haggle over a 2005 Ford Focus.

The young man didn't ask for a mechanical inspection, either.

Lambert says the man pulled a .25-caliber handgun from his pocket, apparently to rob him. Lambert pulled his own .380 caliber and the two were pointing weapons at each other for a tense moment.

The commissioner says he told the man to put down his gun and the man said he didn't want any trouble.

The suspect fled on foot and police later arrested 19-year-old Kane Stackhouse on an attempted robbery charge.

At the time of the robbery, Lambert was wearing a baseball cap that read, "Friends of the NRA." He says the would-be robber never asked for money or made demands -- but then, he didn't get much of a chance to.

There are also .32 cal revolvers.

When diagnosing illness, doctors have an expression: "When you hear hoofbeats, think horses, not zebras."

From the wiki.............32acp vs 32 revolver

32 acp
It was designed for early blowback semi-automatic pistols which lacked a breech locking mechanism; the relatively low power of the .32 ACP round made it a practical blowback round.
It is still used today in blowback semi-automatic pistols, as well in modern locked-breech, single column magazine, deep-concealment, semi-automatic pistols.
Ballistic Data
• Muzzle velocity: 4.8 g (74 gr) full metal jacket: 290 m/s (950 ft/s)
• Penetration 7.3" (Bare Gelatin)
• Expansion 0.49" (Bare Gelatin)


.32 H&R Magnum
The .32 H&R Magnum is a rimmed cartridge designed for use in revolvers. It was developed in 1984 as a joint venture between Harrington & Richardson and Federal Cartridge. The .32 H&R Magnum was produced by lengthening the .32 S&W Long case by .155", to 1.075".
The .32 H&R magnum offers substatially more performance than other .32 caliber handgun cartridges such as the .32 ACP and can be considered an effective small game hunting cartridge. It's high velocity offers a flat trajectory, but the light weight of the bullets results in low recoil.
One of the .32 H&R magnums favorable attributes is that it offers .38 Special energy levels and allows a small-frame revolver to hold 6 cartridges, whereas a similarly sized revolver in .38 special would only hold 5 rounds.
