Title: Trayvon Martin Killed By Single Gunshot Fired From 'Intermediate Range,' Autopsy Shows

Florida teenager Trayvon Martin died from a single gunshot wound to the chest fired from “intermediate range,” according to an autopsy report reviewed Wednesday by NBC News.

The official report, prepared by the medical examiner in Volusia County, Fla., also found that the 17-year-old Martin had one other fresh injury – a small abrasion, no more than a quarter-inch in size – on his left ring finger below the knuckle.

Separately, a medical report on Martin’s alleged killer, 28-year-old George Zimmerman, prepared by his personal physician the day after Martin’s shooting in Sanford, Fla., on Feb. 26, found that the Neighborhood Watch volunteer suffered a likely broken nose, swelling, two black eyes and cuts to the scalp. That report, first reported Tuesday by ABC News, also was reviewed by NBC News. Advertise | AdChoices

Both documents are part of a mountain of evidence – up to 300 pages and 67 CDs of witness statements, surveillance videos and other material-- expected to be made public soon in connection with the second-degree murder case against Zimmerman.

Zimmerman allegedly shot Martin during a confrontation inside the gated community in Sanford where Zimmerman was a neighborhood volunteer and where Martin was visiting his father’s fiancée.

After first reporting a suspicious person in the neighborhood in a phone call to Sanford police, Zimmerman followed the teenager before a fatal confrontation that remains shrouded in mystery.

Textbook case of self-defense.

But thanks for playing.

What was the weapon that Zimmerman used? Do you know?

EDIT: Nevermind, found it. Kel-Tec 9 mm.

I can tell you this, it was most likely within 8-10 feet max, or Z likely would have missed.

I own a Kel-Tec 9 mm and it's not accurate at all beyond that distance.

Try the Springfield XD-9 with a 4" barrel. Surprisingly good.

Right now I'm leaning toward the Springfield 1911.

Haven't owned or fired a 1911 in years. Maybe a S&W.

What I'd really like to find is a mid 20's Colt. But they're so pricey.

In a 1911 would you go with Springfield or S&W? Or what?

Since I didn't even know S&W builds a 1911,I'd go with Springfield. They've been doing it for years and have a good reputation.

If you prefer to buy a used basic 1911,look around for a Norinco. It pains me to say this,but they were really good basic military model 1911A1's. Maybe the only Chinese product ever built that had good steel.

S&W makes some great 1911s. Their Elite series is a match grade piece right out of the box. S&W has always used an external ejector design so that is one major difference from a pure Browning 1911 design since he used an internal ejector on on THAT design. External ejectors are better, you don't have to time them and if they break they are an easy fix. In fact in ALL of his later designs of autoloaders Browning also used an external ejector design.

One thing about Kimber is their legendary LACK of customer service, (if you are just a citizen). Also it's alot harder to get Kimber mags. Don't get me wrong, I like Kimbers and I'll be getting a carry one soon. I looked at one yesterday, (ultra Carry II), but I also looked at the compact Glock and the Para Warthog.

As far as I'm concerned you can't have too many .45s/1911s. If I was forced to keep just one I'd keep my S&W 1911STA, it ROCKS, (I love that it came with a titanium firing pin and adjustable trigger etc).

I used to be a 1911 purist, now I'm just a .45 acp purist, (and .40 cal, and 10mm, and .357 and 9mm and 22 mag and 22 lr and ...), ;^)

btw; to me, my full sized S&W 1911STA handles better than almost any 45 that I've ever owned, and I REALLY dig the ALL stainless frame and slide.

Personally I would not own a ChiCom anything, BUT that said, I do own several RUSSIAN shotguns and AKS which I like for what they were designed for.

I've also been looking at Sig Sauer P220s and the H&Ks, which are both WAY pricey, (Kimber level or more), for all metal ones. Sig has been having quality issues for the last couple of years and H&K's customer service makes Kimber look good. So it's always a matter of taste.

The all metal Springfields are OK places to start, I have no opinion on any of the poly receiver firearms, except to say that as an old fart I always prefer ALL METAL pieces.

Hope this helps.

ALWAYS, check the latest CDNN Investments catalog, they have KILLER deals on firearms. I saw a Sig P220 with aluminum grips and 2 extra 6 rnd mags for around $550. + shipping and xfer fees. (I'd avoid some of their optics and little stuff because most of them are ChiCom made).

If I could I'd buy them ALL.

I saw a nib unfired S&W 1911STA on AK list last week for $850. , but I snoozed. So they are around if you look for them.

Sorry ... you just kind of hit a special nerve re shopping for .45acp pistols with me.

Good luck and happy shooting.

I plan on buying a CZ 75 SP01 in 40 S&W in the near future. Not because I really need another handgun (or most of the ones I already have),but because I don't have a 40 cal and they are really nice guns.

I'll probably buy a basic gun because I am a firm believer in the theory that the less crap there is the less crap there is to go wrong.

Not to mention the fact that they are ALL "ghost sights" to me nowadays,so why pay more for useless upgrades? I can spend that money on dies,brass,primers,and powder.

I love the CZ design.

"NEED" hasn't got a D@MNED thing to do with firearms imo. I like to have a couple in each caliber so I get experience shooting with different calibers.

I'm TOTALLY with you on the bells and whistles thing. I like my firearms basic and RELIABLE.

LOL! Funny how when we get older we end up where we were when we were young.

I was started out by shooting metal line of sight, at target center of mass, with "snap" point shooting.

Now my eyes are so bad I'm forced to do it as my normal procedure, (those three dots do help me anyhow).

I can also add two numbers in my head without a calculator.

LOL!

This is what I'm contemplating getting in the near future....
