Um, maybe if it's professional bowhunting? Anyway, I could also refer you to Don Pentecost's prison knife book if you'd like:

I'm referencing books because, yes, I am not an experienced knife murderer and my knowledge is academic. As I'm sure yours is, too.
The goal is to deflate the lung and cause shock; the heart is icing on the cake. Hitting the heart is moreso what will happen if you're using a projectile. Anyway, the point is that this **** is actually attempted in prisons, whether or not they use the deadliest Navy SEAL approved perinium stab to spinal dislocation or whatever "far more efficient ways to kill". Pentecost notes that it causes shock that allows for followup, while tactics like bleeding them out from the throat can allow them to fight back even though they're bleeding to death.
Because that is fucking retarded. There are far more effective ways to kill with a blade than to stab the armpit in hopes of hitting the heart.
To use a dated reference in my case, note the timetable about the heart compared to other targets:
take a knife to the ribcage and tell me how inefficient it is (good luck speaking clearly). Saying its an inefficient target is like criticizing a boxing knockout because they used a hook when a cross is more efficient.
A guy on the DB forum from Bulgaria said it was a safe neighborhood that perhaps had an occasional fight. What is your experience with Bulgaria?
Also don't forget this happened in Bulgaria a place not really known for it's safe environment.
Comparing a mammal-killer-via-exsangunation-and-shock-via-sharp-blade-impact to a mammal-killer-via-exsangunation-and-shock-via-sharp-blade-impact just sounds ridiculous.
But again comparing an assassin to a bow hunter??!!
If one reference out of left field made you change your mind about my intelligence, I'm surprised it didn't happen a long time ago. I'm all about that ****. Anyway, I've prepared this prudent reply to your insulting drivel, but I don't want to leave out the part where I reply in kind:
I used to think you were one of the more intelligent posters.
*Ahem* **** you!

Also you must read at a 4th grade level. Permalost was referencing a discussion on the Dog Bros FB. I doubt you know more than the DB about weapons. Not leaving the armpit open to knife attacks is one of the first things I learned in my Serrada FMA class. Yes there are other targets too but Permalost and the DB by proxy have a valid point.
