Forgive me if this is a dupe, but I have seen this before.

Here is a video of a kid testing a "bullet proof vest" by letting his friend shoot him with a .22.

It looks more like a flak jacket than a bullet proof vest to me.

ETA. This has got to be one of the stupidest things I have seen.

That is a Flak Vest but they are rated to level IIA.

My God, that looks like a regular old flak jacket!

I can't decide weather or not its a shame they didnt test it with a rifle round...

Dumbass kids...

Too bad the kid didn't die. One less to pollute the gene pool in a few years.

Those flack vests get old...
I bet the idiot doing the shooting could have been charged with nasty crimes up to mansluaghter if the vest failed, and the kid got seriously hurt or even killed.

Its this kind of crap that will get our toys taken away in the long run.

I wonder where they got the weapons? From the looks/sounds of them, I don't think they were even 18 years old. Parental supervision, anyone?
