IT is FAKE.
The muzzle has no flash or smoke.
The pistol has NO recoil.
The guy in the vest shows no indication of being hit by an object traveling at about 1000fps.
Nice try boys. but it was funny!!

Another sign you are redneck;
You shoot yourself while wearing a `bulletproof` vest.

The only thing gone wrong here is that the slug didn`t penetrate the vest and we don`t have a new Darwin Awards winner.

The shot is fired with the gun practically stuck next to the vest. The vest in question isn`t anything to brag about, it was never designed to stop a bullet from this range.

McGovern1981 Newton`s third law of motion, which you seem to be unaware of, (simplified):

"To every action there is an equal and opposite reaction."

What you are saying is that the .45 bullet has the equal amount of kinetic energy of a 200lb object travelling at it at the same exact damn speed. This logic simply doesn`t work.

To put it bluntly, no, even if someone has a bulletproof vest on him which will spread the bullets energy on to a larger area, there is no way in hell the bullet itself could have enough energy to knock down a 200lb person. However, the human body is a complex organism and the effects of kinetic energy being transferred into it are very difficult to asses.

There`s less resistance from a bullet travelling from a barrel of a gun then from when it hits a solid object it`s proven that a .45 will knock someone down less than 200lbs without choice.

"Wow what if the vest failed its been known to happen. I think next they should try a .45 the laws of physics say anyone under 200lbs will get knocked onto their back and he`ll probably get serious internal injuries." - McGovern1981 If you wanna talk laws of physics, the person firing the weapon would have to get knocked on his back as well if the person getting hit was to also get knocked on his back...

The vest worked fine: he survived a shot to the chest at point blank range with a 9mm.
Do you really think that a vest such as that one, designed to be worn under normal clothing is going to stop a bullet painlessly?

It was a stupid stunt: you can never be 100% sure of surving a gunshot, vest or no vest.

Idiots..

1) Vest wasn`t very good quality
2) Vest was too small, bullet could have missed and hit his arm or shoulder
3) Shouldn`t have aimed for the freakin` heart. That`s just stupid.
4) Shooter was too close, but would only be further if he was a decent shot..

even when you have armor, there`s no getting around newton and conservation of energy. 1/2 m*v^2 has to go somewhere, as does m*v.

>TalcumX
Correct. Really what bullet resistant vests are is an outer layer with a certain amount of resistance to high speed kinetic impact, then an inner layer to distribute the absorbed linear momentum over a wider area of the body. Pretty much all armor works that way, really, bulletproof vests are just optimized for resisting bullets.

There is no such thing as a "bullet proof`" vest. Bullet resistant, yes. Bullet proof was a term used by armors, who would actually fire a bullet at an armor vest (for instance) that was for sale, to prove its quality. The degree of penetration would therefore give it its bullet proof designation. And yes, having someone intentionally shoot you, or anyone else for that matter to test one, while it is occupied, is retarded to the first degree.

That`s hilarious because while the U.S. is the #1 obese country, the UK is #3, and the UK`s obesity rate is rising faster than any other in the world.

The most common last words of many rednecks are, "Hey! Watch ius!"

Translates to: "Your attention, please. Watch this. I will now do something incredibly stupid that will endanger my life."

Ever wonder why carrying a firearm is a misdemeanor, and a blade is a felony?

This just adds more questions, or perhaps it answers them.

"moomatz there was a video here a while ago, with a guy standing on one leg with a bullet proof vest (that worked) and the bullet didn`t even knock him over. Its simply a human reaction to jump backwards... unless it`s like, an .45 hunting rifle hahaha"

thats why i hate movies/tv shows where a guy goes flying back after a shotgun blast. if guns did that they could never be fired

Thats not a bulletproof vest. Its called a `Second Chance` vest. It has a reliable ability to slow a bullet down by taking the initial brunt of the impact. Its basically layers and layers of cardboard compacted down (which is why it doesnt work wet). These guys are complete idiots.
