Guy and girl have idea to make a YouTube video of him holding encyclopedia and her shooting it and bullet stopping in the book.
Except it goes through the book and he dies. .50cal desert eagle and they never even tested it on a similar book. It was all to get a bunch of views on YouTube.

Ruiz held up the book — described by County Attorney James Brue as a hardcover encyclopedia — and Perez pulled the trigger on a .50-caliber Desert Eagle pistol, trying to see whether the bullet would go through, according to the criminal complaint.
. Imagine when we have 300,000 subscribers," Perez says during the video.

Ruiz replies, "I told them, the bigger we get, I'll be throwing parties."

One hour before their future unraveled Monday evening, Perez wrote on Facebook, "We are in the process of making Pedro a YouTube channel oh man is it going to be sweet! LOL." She added: "All the crazy stuff will [be] on his channel and mine. will be our family life!!!"

Soon after the shooting, Perez told a sheriff's deputy that it was Ruiz who had been pushing his idea for the video, which was recorded by one camera on the back of a parked vehicle and another on a ladder, according to the complaint. He had shown her another book that he had shot and the bullet didn't go all the way through, the charging document continued.

"Perez stated that she shot from about a foot away while [Ruiz] held the book to his chest," the complaint read.

this ain't that uncommon, back when I had my gun shop, I had many customer come in wanting yo buy body armor, so they could shoot each other
had two kids(early 20's) that thought it would be a fun game, and to ONLY use 22 rifles??
I had to explain to them most ALL 22 rifles will shoot a bullet thru a the average bullet proof vest! too fast and too small a bullet for most to capture and grab and NOT go thru a vest!

I was asked about thsi stuff a lot, and or overheard talks and had to TRY and explain how NOT such a great idea

not too long ago, there was guy online who THOUGHT his steel tip boots would stop a 45 cal slug from his handgun??
genius had to test his theory with foot in the boot, BYE bye toes??


way I see it, better them shooting them selves like, , than others! LOL

The year was 1956. We lived in Greenville, Pa. One day, the school had a pistol shooting exhibition in the Gymnasium. An Apache indian claimed to be the world's best pistol marksman using a single action Colt 45 revolver.

He shot into two 4x4 pieces of wood held on his helper's chest. They borrowed several kid's wallets to place between the two pieces of wood. The bullet went through the first piece, through the wallets and stopped halfway in the second piece.

I'll never forget that demo.:shocked:

It's a sad state of affairs when we have a society where people are actually that dumb. Maybe he should have used that encyclopedia to look up "darwin" before attempting to use it for a shield. Who the hell thinks using a book to stop a .50 from a foot away is a good idea? And these idiots had kids?...... Fantastic.

I have a dumb ass friend that once shot me in the foot through my heavy leather work boots. We had .22 cal. pistols using CB caps shooting mice in his chicken coop. He missed the mouse and hit me square in the toe, pellet went through the boot and hit my big toe breaking the skin. It hurt like hell. You'd be pretty surprised what a little .22 cb cap is capable of.

I can't find the CB shorts any longer, I do have some CB longs though.

I've still got some cb longs to. These were shorts. We use to fire the long's at squirrels... all it did if you hit one it'd really piss them off. They were very inaccurate.

proof that although you cannot fix stupid, you can shoot it.
weeding out of the stupid is a good thing. there is a reason you don't see stupid lions
