    Don't try stuff like this.

    This young man probably saw that old video of a designer of bullet proof vest shoot himself to prove that it worked and decided to try it out himself. Even if the shooter was accurate and hit the vest. A flak vest will probably not stop a bullet.

    The police are not there to protect you from crime, they are there to arrest the guy after the crime has been committed, assuming they find him. It is your responsibility to protect yourself and your family.

    Why do I see a hey y'all watch this kind of deal? Why kind of stupid is this girl and guy? This is a special kind of moron to think that shooting a real gun whether they had a vest on couldn't be a bad idea.

    Gun control isn't about guns...it's about control. It also makes criminals out of otherwise law abiding citzens.

    Meanwhile. Stupidity aside...once you fire a bullet at a vest you will compromise the structural integrity of the ballistic panel so....it may just prove to be lots less effective should you get popped out on the street.
    So WHY would anybody do that even if they were not acting like a total dumb-ass by wearing it while testing it.

    That is the main reason why folks purchase a BPV from a trusted manufacturer. So that you don't have to fire bullets at it in your backyard to test it and see if it works.

    Damn dumb dead idiot.

    I think they ought to turn her loose. I mean, unless the guy was mentally retarded, he asked for it and got what he asked for.

    I mean, how the heck else you gonna know if them vests be workin' or not?

    Not clicking the link unless there's a video!

    Please tell me there's a video!! I mean of the dipstick getting shot too, not just news!


    I've seen a few different videos of "Gangsta" types wearing vests and letting their friends shoot them to test it's effectiveness. Every single time, deep down in the dark recesses of my warped mind I'm always hoping the person's aim is off, or their shiny HiPoint is loaded with teflon coated, armor piercing, heat seeking, explosive rounds. But they never are!
