A man is dead after an apparent attempt to test a ballistic vest went awry in Central, Arizona Monday, sheriff's officials say. Parker Lynch, Steven Watson and another man were shooting a rifle in a wooded area near the Reay Lane Bridge. Lynch had a ballistic vest and asked Watson to shoot the vest and ballistic plate while Lynch was wearing it, the Graham County Sheriff's Office said.

I'm having a hard time deciding if this was a failure or a success.

A good guy with a ballistic vest can't outrun a good guy with hollow points.

How many fans of Super Troopers have to die before this long national nightmare perpetrated by the Broken Lizard 'comedy' troop ends? OTOH, hooray! We lost a moron!

Hope the shooter has that request recorded.

In other news, Trump today tweeted that Fed Employees ax'ed him to please stop their pay again with another gov shutdown.

Dick Cheney also revised his story and said that the guy in Texas actually insisted that Cheney shoot him in the face.

We were talking about Cheney the other day... Here's a guy who ASKS his friend to shoot him: "Graham County Sheriff's deputies arrested Watson, and he faces a manslaughter charge."

No chance.

Someone who posts here says if it's an accident it doesn't count.

Never has and never will.

That's true in Texas. Hunting accidents. This wasn't an accident. He intended to shoot him, just not kill him.

It was Arizona yes. But technically you can still argue it was an "accident". The shooting wasn't but the result of the shot was not the expected/intended outcome. If he lived would he have been charged? It actually doesn't say if they were hunting, I am guessing no though.

There wouldn't have even been a police report filed for this in Texas.

Actually hollow points wouldn't be very effective agasint a bullet-proof, or ballistic vest. It's FMJ (Full Metal Jackets) rounds that you have to watch out for.

Even if the vest had stopped the round, you're still at serious risk for potentially fatal internal injuries.

That's a huge amount of energy to dissipate in your internal organs.

Was the vest made by Hold My Beer, Inc.?

FAKE NEWS!!
The libruls don't want patriots to know how safe their vests are. Don't be fooled, you can barely feel the bullet.
The ice bucket challenge is for pansy democrats.
Test your vest and own the libs!

He should be charged with terminal stupidity. If he was dumb enough to shoot his friend with a rifle there is no telling what other stupid crap the idiot would do. Put him in a rubber room and leave him there.
