I seem to recall Spillane shooting a transvestite (or transexual -- forget which)
right in the gut as he/she tried to seduce and distract him by stripping.

Chester Gould's bullet holes were, to put it mildly, abstract and not very
horrifying --- if you've ever seen a real bullet would. Not that nice clean thru
and thru hole he used to draw, or am I confusing him with Fearless Fosdick, who
was much much more hardboiled than Tracy.
