If a bullet gets shot into a person it will either get stuck somewhere in the person, or it will cause something which is called a through and through in which case, the bullet will go all the way through a said person. If a person was hugging someone and one of them had a gun, and he shot it, and it was a through and through, it would potentially hurt the shooter who was hugging him, and causes a cut along with a minor bruise surrounding it, or it would simply just hit him pretty hard and give him a large bruise. Thank you and goodnight.

I love this series so much, mostly because Ryan and Shane know how to laugh and not take everything too seriously. When you go on Investigation discovery, it seems so theatrical and staged. But here, they just say the facts and make a few jokes along the way. I love this series, keep up the good work!!

I think you two are forgetting that he was killed during prohibition when alcohol was illegal, so if Mabel was having trouble with drugs and alcohol then maybe she had confided to Taylor about her addiction problems in their letters (though perhaps she didn't state it directly) and maybe that's why she didn't want all of their letters to be released because it not only would have ruined her career but possibly would have gotten her arrested for allegedly consuming alcohol. So I don't think Taylor was a 'buzzkill' for being against alcohol, I think he was just genuinely concerned for Mabel
