Nope a complete loon! Anyone remember the slr into an Iniba wrapped around the oil drum at Nitat?
 
He seems fine though, I'd be concerned if there was a ricochet off the ceramic plate,
 
Only in America!

Harry: Yeah, she grabbed down at the lobby, explained what was up, then they slapped this bullet proof vest on me and gave me a gun.
Lloyd: But what if he shot you in the face?

I've got this video (1990! but not the VCR!). I thought it was fascinating entertainment and quite enlightening, eg the silencer effectiveness bit.

Might see if I can get it on DVD.

I seam to remember a young LT from the 9/12 got shot on the plate out in Bosnia it deflected up and hit him under the chin. Cant say thats a fact just remember the story in the mid 90s.

The same thing happened to a chap a few years ago demonstrating body armour with full house 44 Magnum loads. He had a telephone book under the vest for obvious reasons, got the angle wrong, and the ricochet gave him high velocity lead poisoning to the brain.
 
I took three .38 hits at point blank in Belfast, and ended up with a couple of broken ribs, but only one partial penetration
, so I can see why he uses a pile of magazines
