47. Field of vision
Hang on. He says "The revolver was directly in front of my nose."

Obviously he was not looking straight into the barrel. Then hed be dead.

So he was looking at the gun "in profile". ( More or less )

And his field of vision is ofcourse not narrowed down to 20 centimeters.

So he will see it if RFKs head / shoulder is directly in front of the gun.

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

When he says "directly infront of my nose", Im thinking, unless he was crouched down, this position of the gun does not fit with the two wounds in RFKs back. ( Just below the right armpit. )

And another thing that strikes me. If it is correct that witnesses say that the gun was held horizontally, then it seems like it would fit perfectly with the first shots being the ones that hit the door divider.
