English term or phrase: dead bang
In a movie person A aims a gun at person B. Person B says, "Take your best shot. You got me dead bang."
(Note: Person A killed person B a while ago. Person B now came back from the dead and is invincible and "bullet-proof").
The only thing I found for dead bang was "auf frischer Tat ertappen" which does not fit in this context.
Any suggestions?

Explanation:
Und wenn es ironisch gemeint ist?

Wenn die Person B nun die Person A einfach damit auf den Arm nimmt?

Dann würde doch ertappt passen?
