Quaid uses a dead bystander this way in the subway scene with Richter and his crew shooting at him from both ends of an escalator and by the time Quaid and his meat shield get to the top of the escalator the corpse is basically Swiss cheese, but still no bullets go through it to strike Quaid.

** Mars has 38% of the Earth's surface gravity. While people and objects would clearly still be bound to the planetary surface, people would walk and objects would fall differently.
