My cousin was shot , and the bullet (.38 cal) went thru his cowboy belt buckle and was lodged between the buckle and his belt. He said it was like someone had hit him in the stomach real hard.
On the news, they were telling the story and saying "there was a shooting", and a guy was being loaded into an ambulance behind them. It gave the impression, the guy being put in the ambulance was the one shot. NOPE , it wasn't. After the guy pulled the gun and shot my cousin, he beat the hell out of the guy ..... to the point he was in bad shape and an ambulance was called for the BG and they had to rush him to the hosptial.
The guy had been shooting at several drivers, etc. as he was going down the road, and my cousin and a couple of other trucks had forced the guy off the road in order to stop him. When he got out of his truck, the guy stepped out of his car and shot him at which point my cousin "disarmed" him in an aggressive manner.

I wonder what caliber that was. Damn, can't even kill a mobile phone from 5ft away, might as well shoot spit-balls @ the guy.
bullet proof vests are out of my price range, but hey I finally found a use for all those dead cell phones.....
just kidding of course, that is a weird story!

Most Nextels can also serve as offensive weapons if necessary, similar to a large rock.
This is a concern of mine, I just had to lay a guy off in a RIF and I know he took it hard. You never know how people are going to react, so I guess I better get me a LBV and strap a bunch of phones to it.

That was a weird story. I wonder what caliber and type of ammo was used.

Those who will not govern their own behavior are slaves waiting for a master; one will surely find them.
In other news reports it is stated that it also destroyed his belt buckle, so it may have careened off of one item into the other, thereby absorbing all or most of the energy.
It could have just hit the cellphone in just the right spot and the right angle to lose sufficient energy...some cellphones and cameras are built like a tank and meant to be able to be dropped off a building and withstand 400 lbs of force before breaking...they market to people who are adventurous or work in rough environments like construction or handymen
