•Infrared luminescence inspection of gunshot residue is an easy and reliable method for the detection of propellant particles in target tissue for about 80–90% of ammunition types. The quantification of unburned propellant particle densities can be used to draw shooting distance curves. The curve slope strongly depends on the morphology of the propellant particles. Muzzle-to-target distances could be determined up to 1.5m for pistols and up to 3m for a revolver.•In cases of large particle density variation within the samples of identical shooting distances, the ratio of the amount of particles within the area around the bullet hole and within a ring with a defined distance from the bullet hole was calculated. These data resulted in measures with much lower standard deviations.•The described method can be applied as a supplementary method on the same samples before or after the Rhodizonate Test or the Chlorindazone Test.
