Bullet Proof Vest Test – Keepin It Mad Real

Gangstas trust the science behind vests, and rely on that when keeping it the realest:

“That shit hurt a lil’ bit.” -Al Wizzle

Al Wizzle is real alright.  Real stupid… did you see that goose egg?  I bet there’s internal bleeding.

The handgun they used is a .32 ACP apparently.

this gave me a headache.. why?! just why? ignorance knows no bounds.

$20 says thats an old expired vest. Looks like a Seacamp 32 to me. Hes lucky his friend didn’t have a 9mm.

I have a Mosin Nagant and some steel core ammo they can borrow. For science.

For science.

I think the guy’s a f**king idiot.

I have lots of great friends that I trust.
There’s not one of them I would trust pointing a loaded gun at me.
“Oops. Sorry dude. I really didn’t mean to shoot you in the throat. I was aiming for the vest, then I hiccuped…”

“That 32 is a bad mother fucker though.”

That is the quote you should have used. I now know that I am carrying a 38 spcl for no reason and only need to carry 32 acp.

If it had been a 115gr 9×19 ball round, I suspect the world would be a safer place.

Anybody know gang tats? Something tells me the ink on the moron’s chest has a greater symbolism than if he had just wandered into a tattoo parlor drunk with money in his hand.

(tho I wouldn’t be surprised if he got the ink while drunk)

Too bad they didn’t have a .44 with a 6″ barrel.

Real men start off with 00 buckshot to break the armor in and then they switch to the heavy 7.62x54R rounds.

LOL. wow.


Dan March 17, 2013 at 12:12 pm

I look at it like this: It’s always nice to have more data on what taking a bullet while wearing one of these vests will do to the human body. I sure as heck wouldn’t want to be the subject, and this might be one of the largest contributions this guy makes to society.


Richard R. March 17, 2013 at 01:51 pm

I’m curious how they obtained the vest and if it was used before. I’ve done a few experiments with vests that had been compromised by different calibers with only one shot. While they looked new, I wouldn’t trust my life in any way shape or form to them let alone intentionally get shot by someone after seeing how well they held up. Darwinism at it’s finest I guess. Some of the tests on new vests were rather informative too. FYI: 12 gauge Fleshette rounds are some evil shit. Half the spears penetrated the front of the vest and partially out the back. @Dan 00 and the Hornady SST slugs were extremely effective too. The loads pushed the vest inside the mannequin’s chest cavities. I need to get some footage of this!

This was posted to my local forum earlier this week. We theorized its a level 1 vest.

Reputable gentlemen doing this test.


Seb March 17, 2013 at 03:53 pm

Bbrilliant! I want to see them test more calibers!


silenceXcorE March 17, 2013 at 06:21 pm

See, this is why we can’t have nice things…..


Al T. March 17, 2013 at 07:13 pm

Last year some idiots burgled a local cop shop. The only thing they got were several vests that were for sizing officers. We were desperately hoping they would try this sort of test. Sadly, they burgled another gun store in North Augusta and got shot up (1 KIA) by the owner who lived next door and had an AR-15.

Sniff, sniff. I just love a story with a happy ending. :)


Chase Cullinan March 17, 2013 at 10:17 pm

North Augusta, SC? I’m in Augusta. I graduate from ASU/GRU in May and intern with the S.O. Are you over here in GA or SC?

Looks like he had the vest on backwards too.


Al T. March 18, 2013 at 01:02 pm

Chase, yep, NASC. The dummies fled the scene and stopped at Waffle House to get medical assistance. Ya can’t make that stuff up. :)


SittingDown March 17, 2013 at 08:46 pm

Looked like a perforated umbilical hernia to me.


Crunkleross March 17, 2013 at 09:13 pm

Invalid test, shooter didn’t hold the pistol in the proper horizontal ghetto style or slang the bullets to add velocity. They should repeat the test and add some distance so the bullet can get up more speed.


Hoekamania March 17, 2013 at 10:11 pm

Sayyy Whaaaatttt. The most shocking bit was the attempt at a 2 hand grip.


Phigmeta March 18, 2013 at 02:19 am

Now try it with a 7.62×25 …. what thats a handgun round


santi March 18, 2013 at 09:47 am

There should be a ignorant dumb fuck death rate statistic in the FBI database.


Critter March 18, 2013 at 06:57 pm

i note he was wearing the vest backwards….


Wolf March 18, 2013 at 09:28 pm

Thank you, I thought i was crazy.


ASM826 March 19, 2013 at 04:33 pm

Every time I see one of these “tests” I wonder why they don’t drape the vest over a stump and see if it penetrates. Misses would unimportant and vest failures would be data instead of police reports.


Jim P. March 19, 2013 at 05:02 pm

I see who you are now. You’re one of those smarmy types that uses your head for more than a hat rack. You should be ashamed by trying to call these two dolts “idiots”! No one ever needs to have a rational thought. You, … you thinking types just get me so mad!! :-p


Jay C June 28, 2014 at 01:07 pm

I wouldn’t let my momma shoot my ass f##k that shit !!!!!!!!!!


John December 10, 2015 at 09:43 pm

I got an 8mm mauser, if you’d like to try that alsa dumb ass.
