Many years ago, when I was a Police Explorer, I saw a "training video"
called Flak Vest Test by a Fool. The starring role was a man
goofing off and asking people to shoot him while he was wearing his
bullet-proof vest. He took round after round of fire, from a .22 to a .357
magnum. The final shot was from an AR-15 rifle, cousin to the M-16. This
bullet passed a few millimenters below the Kevlar vest, with its
metal trauma plate. It entered the man's lower stomach, passed through his
colon, and damaged his spine. He has trouble walking to this day. Duh!
