    That Gel does not simulate some kind of Skin.<br>I saw a documentation once, that showed that a human beeing, alone in afrika couldn´t even get meat from a dead animal, because fingernails and teeth are too weak to penetrate the skin. You need at least split stone as a tool because the skin is very strong on animals in that area.<br><br>So i´d say to simulate something AND get a good result, get a clean surface, tie a pig-leg to it, use clean ammo...have your fun AND a nice meal afterwards. (And save money i bet) <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_smile.gif" alt="Smile" longdesc="2"><br>It should be also possible to buy a half pig head from your butcher. Quite cheap and very nice to make a soup out of it.

    You can make ballistic gel using normal gelatin, there is lots of videos about it on youtube. But the gel may not be as accurate as real ballistic gel.

    <span class="postbody"><br><br>Yes, maybe, but then again, normal skin is connected to the flesh...and why make a big fuss if you can get it "real" for less money? At home you don´t have to use "ballistic gel" that is used for TV-shows like myth busters to not shock some over-sensitive people...just get real <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_smile.gif" alt="Smile" longdesc="2"></span>

    Somewhere I was reading about there being some doubt as to using ballistics gel with low velocity projectiles. The guys that designed it were checking out rifles.<br><br>I'm thinking like Antraxx, use real and then barbecue <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_cheers.png" alt="cheers" longdesc="28"><br><br>At the same time compare the damage done to other targets with the same setup--then you will have a growing list of analogues.<br><br>It would be cool to start a list here in the destruction tests section where people tell comparisons they find. For example:<br><br>13mm oriented strand board (OSB)=adut male thumb bone (I made that up)<br><br>Much of this is just reinventing the wheel though...any forensics students on here?<br>

    Coincidence? About two days ago I bought about 10 packs of normal gelatine and made some gelatine, and its nice since you can mix it to different strengths and if you ruined it or split it just heat it, and it will become liquid and then hardens again and again and again. But I have heard that there are some recipes adding glycerin to the mixture so I`m gonna try that right now <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_smile.gif" alt="Smile" longdesc="2">
