…experiments on the dead vampires…

I Am Legend – Richard Matheson

“Through experiments on the dead vampires he had discovered that the bacilli effected the creation of a powerful body glue that sealed bullet openings as soon as they were made.  Bullets were enclosed almost immediately, and since the system was activated by germs, a bullet couldn’t hurt it.  The system could, in fact, contain almost an indefinite amount of bullets, since the body glue prevented a penetration of more than a few fractions of an inch.  Shooting vampires was like throwing pebbles into tar.”
