Default Real or Fake? Bullet proof vest test.

http://s423.photobucket.com/albums/p...stupid_guy.flv

I saw this on another forum a little while ago, and there is a little debate on whether it is fake or real.


Obviously, the sound lags behind the video a little, so you have to watch for the shot instead of listening for it. You can clearly see the slide of the pistol coming back after the shot, but there is little to no recoil....the front of the gun barely moves, if it does at all. But, the choppy quality of the video could hide a little recoil. Somebody made the suggestion that his buddy punches him in the chest to pop the fake blood capsule, which is pretty convenient.

So what do you think? I'm undecided. The slide moving caught my eye, but the lack of recoil and the lack of a spent cartridge makes me wonder.

*edit*

I don't give a damn if its a re-post, I was looking for some more opinions on whether it is fake or not.

the creator of the bullet proof vest originally to demonstrate his product would shoot himself point blank.

My guess is that if it is real, it must have been a .22.

My vote for fake - shot sound is not right & and no physical reaction on shot.

Remember the Second Chance body armor guy Richard Davis shooting himself with a .44 to prove his product - he was badass. I still have the Freep article hanging in my back office.


*edit, I just saw Skoots statement on the same guy above.

Every post shot picture I've seen of somebody who has been shot with a vest on shows some pretty wicked localized brusing at the impact site. In the video I only seen some redness and no brusing around the cut.

I'm going to say bullshit to the gun shot. Video participants look like real winners.

I saw this on a higher quality film somewhere. It looked pretty real on the other site.....

.22 or 9mm either way it's a small hole......

Based on the shit below that was also in his photobucket... they don't seem too smart.

I call it plausible.

I'm guessing fake. But then again I have never seen a person shot. Just Deer.
