    Geezus. 10mm to boot. Entertaining - if I said it wasn't I'd be lying. All for dumb people doing crazy things to themselves for the sake of getting attention.

    Richard Davis (the owner of second chance body armor) did that all the time to demonstrate the effectiveness of his vests. I think he usually used a .44 mag.

    Darwinism at it's best. I like how he pushes on the armor before he pulls the trigger to make sure there's something there to stop the bullet.

    This actually kinda makes me feel good about myself. I've done some really stupid stuff, but never anything close to this.

    This is why the Jerry Springer Show has had high ratings for countless years.

    INtelligence at it's worse.
    Agree - Darwinism .
    These people should self select out.

    Now all we need is some kid to repeat the stunt and not end up so well.

    For that reason I hope he doesn't have a lasting impression on anyone. I can see the front page headlines already...

    I have a 6 hour long VHS tape of David being shot with everything from a 629 Smith (he held it at arms lenght) to an AK-47 7.62x39 from less then 10 ft 6 rounds into the chest. He then dove into near freezing water to float around for something like 20 min before being pulled out to test his bullet proof survival suit he was selling to the Coast Guard. if I remember corretly he holds the Guiness Book of Worlds records for being shot the most times and living.

    I got to the point watching the video that I got bored and it took maybe 5-6 trys to get through all of it he was shot so many time.
