    Default Shooting Yourself In The Head - Whats The Best Way?

    Well im not planning anything if that is what you are thinking. I have noticed that in movies, TV, games etc people use different ways to shoot them selves in the head if it ever comes to that. Theres the gun to the side of the head position. You can shoot yourself from under your chin or through your mouth. So which would be the most instant and painless death?

    Thats the worst way to kill yourself. Alot of people don't take into consideration the "kick" of the shotgun. So they put the shotgun below their chin and pull the trigger.... the shotgun "kicks" and only blows half their face off and their still alive. Easiest way is a hangun to the side of the head, quick and relatively painless.

    pistol to side of head is bad idea too, several cases where the person has blown out both eyes and the bridge of their nose and survived...

    My mother is bipolar, I'm probably bipolar, it's safe to assume one of my children in the future will be, thus pistol + ammunition = bad idea.

    I think through the mouth has the biggest chance of killing you.

    To the side of your head has a big survival rate.
    You don't need all of your brain to live, you realy only need the brain stem, which is located at the bottom of your brain, so with the "gun to your head method" the bullet wil likely fly right over the vital parts, leaving you with serious brain damage, but alive.
    And maybe the bullet can even bounce right off your skull (but I'm not sure if that's possible)

    Under the chin should work too, but I think it's easier to aim trough the mouth.

    Damn beaton to the punch. Where the spine meets the brain is the area that needs blowing out unless you want to be vegetable. Mouth shot is the closest you can get to that area and easier to fire straight.

    Bit of a sick thread mind you.

    Place your head inside of a large-bored army artillery piece. It's got to be the most sure-fire way to suceed, atleast.

    Through the mouth is the best, do remember to aim abit upward though.

    I was thinking something similar.

    A. Place your face in the barrel of a "Big Bertha" vintage German artillary piece and fire it....somehow.
    B. Tape a Claymore to the side of your head, and then shoot it. If the bullet doesn't kill you, the claymore will.

    The best way is gun barrel to the temple or gun barrel in the mouth. the WORST way is gun barrel under the chin, like the warden in Shawshank Redemption did. Totally ruined that movie for me. People who do that, blow their chin and tongue away but the bullet never enters the brain. all theye in for is lots and lots of plastic surgery and hospital fees.

    edit: personally I'd choose barrel in the mouth. Bullet enters brain stem, supposedly quick and painless...

    either that or you can breath cyanide just before shooting yourself (through the mouth aiming for the mid and hindbrain, though the coolest is probably to the temple, now that i think about it...) just like those nazis did at the end of ww2...

    Me I always liked the idea of dying with a sword in my hand...

    Side of head, right above the ear, would be the best. If shooting oneself in the mouth, there would be a chance of aiming too low, thus not hitting the brain and resulting in lots of pain without dying for a while.

    But suicide is a weakling's way out, and should only be done if absolutely necessary.

    I heard the quickest way is to shoot yourself in the mouth. The bullet goes right through to the back of the head and severs the neves at the back of the head.

    When the SWAT team is going to shoot someone in the head, they aim (from the front) for just below the nose, the point of this, is so the exit wound severs the spinal chord. Death is almost instantanious, so if the target is armed or has a hostage, they cannot get a shot off before they die. So the best way, I would assume, is any trajectory that is going to sever the spinal chord at the base of the skull or in the neck.

    What about a shotgun in the mouth, creates a brand new sun roof to get some fresh air to that moldy brain. Really cant miss......
