Man Shoots Wife To Prove His Bulletproof Vest Works

Submitted by: fancylad 2 months ago in Weird


Colombian fashion designer Miguel Caballero is selling his bullet proof clothes in the US, and his marketing strategy is certainly attention grabbing. Caballero shot his wife in a live demonstration to prove that his designs work.

Hey, Thorny, how's your shooting today?

Pretty good!

What about that?

That little guy? I wouldn't worry about him.

Good enough for me, you're my man!

(Hope at least someone gets the reference. I may not be totally accurate; I'm going completely from memory)

I'm I the only one more surprised that she is married to the midget with gun than the fact he is willing to shoot her?

This sort of dumb demonstration has been around for ages, since the advent of film I'd say. People shoot the guy (usually a guy) wearing the vest with some sort of low-velocity or 'half-round' ammo :-/

No armour is truly 'bullet-proof' but many are highly 'bullet-resistant' :-) And better than not wearing armour at all if you happen to get shot.

Holy cow! Check out this one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M7mr7CK7zEk

What on earth were they thinking? O_o (23 seconds long)

I don't get it. There is no way on Earth I would ever do such a demonstration on my own wife. No way on Earth. Who in his right mind would? There is always the 0.0001% chance that something could go wrong and how could you live with yourself after that?

Yeah, I think it would show he had confidence in his product if his wife shot him.

Fake as hell, there is no absolutely no way that woman would take a shot to the gut EVEN with bulletproof clothes on and barely flinch.

Im guessing his clothes ARE blank proof, but past that, meh.

daegog It could be possible that she is just in really great shape, but yeah, i doubt it.  I've seen people with real bullet proof vests on get shot and they go down as if they had been shot.  They explain it to feel as though they had been shot, at least one guy I know who actually had been shot described it as feeling very similar.  It's more than enough, even through a vest, to knock the breath out of you and enough pain to knock some people out.  There is absolutely no way she could just suck her chest in like that and take it like nothing at all happened.

And if she dies it's just an "accident".

"Colombian fashion designer is selling bulletproof vests.."  Why does this not surprise me?  Does it have accessory pockets for a cellphone, AR15 magazines and a coke spoon too?
