Another amusement is his insistence that I'm using a "zero energy loss ricochet."
Yeah. I'm assuming that after ricocheting, pieces retain all of their energy to damage more parts of the structure.
Read that again slowly.
Find the bug?
Here's the bug: If it isn't
a "zero energy loss ricochet," then the energy is lost in an inelastic collision. But energy is conserved. Even Mr. Ryan surely must know this. So where did it go? Why, into deforming what the pieces hit, of course. Causing damage.
I believe this is called "having your cake and eating it too," or by its newer, 9/11 Conspiracy specific name, "the Gordon Ross principle."
