    The Darwin Award winner was bragging, "I'm going to get shot with a "deuce, deuce". The Darwin Award runner up shot him just above the vest and faces first and second degree murder charges and of course handgun violations.

    Obviously trying to prove the effects of the "ballistic vest". Obviously someone was never taught proper sight-picture-target alignment. Obviously Person A just helped improve the gene pool by removing Person B. Geeze, kinda funny how life operates....

    Really stupid. A lousey shot and didn't call 911. The victim might've lived had EMTs arrived and been able to treat him on the way to the ER. Then again what kind of idiot voluntarily takes an effing BB to the chest much less a possibly lethal round!? Like Alice said, "It's getting curiouser and curiouser."

    According to what I've read, a .22 LR Hi Vel slug, fired from 50' in, is capable of going completely through a human thorax if it doesn't hit bone. If it hits a rib it can ricochet internally multiple times. There's a lot of important stuff in them thoraxes.
