16. point blank range
Karl Uecker contradicts himself. First he says

There was a distance of at least one and one-half feet between the muzzle of Shirans gun and Senator Kennedys head.

But then he goes on to say....

Shiran never got close enough for a point-blank shot. "

Well according to the definition of point blank range, Sirhan Sirhan was indeed in point blank range.

In forensics and popular usage, point-blank range has come to mean extreme close range (i.e., target within about a meter (3 feet) of the muzzle at moment of discharge but not close enough to be an actual contact shot
