That would be very hard technically for me.
Hey, I'm not judging.

My point is, in general, you don't see it mentioned, but it's a method that's even in the pop culture. Trigger warning, cartoon below.

I remain surprised at the lack of popularity of putting one right in the back of your own head. You can feel the upper spinal column and even without destroying the brainstem, have nearly guaranteed death, barring some sort of "miraculously" fast discovery and surgery.
Well I cannot lift my arm that far back so it's a bit problematic....otherwise I'd do it that way, having cold metal in your mouth as the last sensation you'll ever feel is not such a nice thought...I'm thinking maybe I could wrap something yummy aroud the shotgun barrel so it would be more "palatable"? :pfff: :pfff: Any suggestions anyone???

You have to take up yoga to properly CTB now?

Bacon flavored gun oil? You may have come up with a new business venture..Maybe you can peddle it,free advertising here.

Maybe put the barrel through the center of a glazed donut, so you have to put the muzzle far enough back to get a nibble on the donut?

Sorry if this comes off as inappropriate.Like the great American philosopher Tupac once said on his duet "Smile" with Scarface- "You gotta be able to find a way to smile through all the bullshit", right? :pfff:

How long should the barrel be? I know a snub nose is not good. But maybe even 4 inches is too small. Possibly 6”? Do I need to deep throat it???
A snub nose in fine; it will do the job, if you truly want to do the job that is. I would examine data, if I were you, regarding adolf hitler’s suicide. He died utilizing a snub nose. If you don’t want your snub nose, then give it TO ME.

To directly lift from John Oliver: say what you will about Hitler, he did one GREAT thing. He killed Hitler!

I like the doughnut idea ! Will try it next time I practise ! Will let you know whether I manage to nibble the doughnut while keeping the barrel in correct position ! :pfff::pfff::pfff::pfff::pfff::pfff:

Don’t worry it’s not inappropriate at all to make me laugh ! I’ve kept my sense of humour and will do so until the end ! Thanks for giving me a a bit of fun amidst the misery ! :heart:
Personally planning to blast the song Hallelujah
Singing Hallelujah with a barrel in your mouth sounds a bit complicated....and a bit too religious too, I might end up in heaven, oh please no ! Not spending eternity sitting on a fucking cloud playing the harp and singing « praise the lord« all day !!!

I have read the existing literature; shooting in mouth is way to. This IS how hitler did it; I couldn’t care less that it was hitler; it could be Benito Mussolini-the mouth does it. What’s to reexamine? No I am not a Nazi, neo or otherwise. I advance my method, nothing more or less. Incidentally, a state representative did by mouth IN FRONT of MASS MEDIA. Watch it on YouTube...any ?s...let us move on, respectfully. Who cares about harps or heaven, by the way?

Also thinking about the behind the head method. Seems like it would be easier to pull the trigger because you can't actually see what you're doing.

I beg to differ. This is because when one isn't able to see the angle in which one has the barrel, it is too easy to get a bad angle and end up blowing off a part of one's head (that's not fatal) and potentially end up surviving with serious injuries (and likely a permanent vegetable).

Tilt your head back and you can feel where the base of you skull meets your neck, that would seem to be a direct shot to the medulla. You can have one hand on the trigger and the other holding the barrel to the back of your head for stability. Might be logistically difficult for some people though, I have long arms so it's no issue for me.

But after looking at more diagrams though, you're probably right. The big problem with the behind the head method is that the cerebellum is behind the brain stem. With poor aim you could damage the cerebellum without hitting the medulla, meaning life as a vegetable. With the in the mouth method though, it's almost impossible to damage the cerebellum while missing the brain stem.

All this "persistent vegetative state" talk makes me think I'm the only one here with a living will, doing it somewhere abandoned.

Also if you're in a PVS, you're not perceiving: my end goal either way.

What, specifically, is a pvs?

Is pvs, as you put it, a real possibility with full suspension hanging, to your knowledge?
All this talk about head tilting, this way, that way, leaves me cold. You have only one brain. A sideshow does it. END.

I have no idea. I always planned on complex suicide in a concealed location, to just wake up dead.

I read that if you fill your mouth with water and then insert the shotgun barrel - not sure how easy that would be to do without the water coming out - your whole head would explode. Does anyone know if that is true or not?

Interesting, it would be to difficult to provide a complete seal with lips/water/barrel with hot leakage. I don’t believe it would help if anything it could stifle the expanding gases that come from the cartridge’s ignition and that alone carries a lot of power to tear apart soft tissue and Muscles sinew and possibly bone. Then there’s the projectile. But I’d think not from what I know of physics and ballistics .

So, if I understand correctly, I can just buy a shotgun from a local store and put it in my mouth, angle it slightly forward and press the trigger to kill myself? Would a shotgun be too big to try that?

No I don't think so because you can put the stock of the gun onto the floor and have the barrel in your mouth in a sitting position and then angled towards the back of your head (closer to the brainstem). Also, if you are going to attempt, I would suggest a quiet, secluded area, free of distractions and interference in order to ensure you are successful and leave zero chance of failure. A shotgun (with the proper ammo/load) along with aiming as close as to the brainstem will ensure death. Just remember not to flinch while anticipating the gun discharging as that could lead to missing the vital part and potentially surviving as a vegetable.

Sorry if this has been posted, i believe most of the discussion at the start of the thread was directed towards where to aim.

Will a glock 18 and FMJ suffice? I know hollow points are reccomended but with the whole covid situation i wasnt able to get any. Im sure FMJ can get the job done i just want some more insight on this. Thank you.

Are you sure you have a Glock 18? That is a fully automatic pistol and rare and hard to get. I am unfamiliar with using a fully automatic weapon for this purpose. I'm not sure you could fire more than one round before your trigger finger relaxed. I think a shotgun is the best best bet, even compared to the 18, if you really do have that model.

He doesn’t have a glock 18

He probably just said the wrong number, most likely its a glock 17 or 19. FMJ with a 9mm? Sure it can definitely do the job, but I'd way prefer a shotgun, and with it deep in the mouth pointed slightly upward, preferably a 12 guage, but a smaller shotgun would do too, i don't think the type of shell would evenmake any difference, from birdshot to a slug, tho I'd opt for 00 buck. Anything can happen but it's hard to conceive of failure, even more so if you're out in the wilderness, which would be best place. No horrible mess for someone to clean up; worst comes to worst you'll bleed out:; your earthly remains for animals to eat (your soul, your true self, will be far far far away); and no ambulance rushing to "save" you and make you into a vegetable with tubes stuck in it.
