Apologies if this has already been posted I did search but couldn't find it. So a young couple in a bid for YouTube stardom decided to shoot a Desert Eagle at a book with the intended outcome being that the book stopped the 50 cal round it didn't. The guy actually held the book to his chest whilst his wife shot at him. story

Lol, someone heard a vest stops a bullet because of its multi layers and well, a book is multilayered too, so here goes...

The lengths people go to for 15 minutes of fame never ceases to amaze me I just don't understand how they thought the outcome would be different.

I think this is strangely funny and one of the cases were I feel zero compassion ...

Hope LL has a video of it

Off the top of my head, only someone very brash would buy a gold plated desert eagle anyway. Si, Si, Pedro... next time shoot the book first and see.

"Next time'.

Bunch of idiots.

I know folks who do only ANIME REVIEWS that get more subs and views then this.

People and their terrible choices., Don't look, just keep walking as that scene fades into darkness and the book closes on that family.

A "book"?

With a .50 round, I'm pretty sure that even Tolkien's Lord of the Ring Trilogy would not have sufficed.

Heck, I bet even all of Stephen King's novels, stacked one on top of the other, wouldn't be enough.

Where's the video?


Here is the brilliant trigger person from her YT page.


FFS, there was a 3 yr old there and she is pregnant.

Maybe the kids are better off. Who TF would do this without testing first?

His last words, "baby, hold my beer"

ETA: Here is a local news report.

I have the same pistol and it blew a bowling pin apart. A book is not going to do a damn thing.

Obviously.

Why do people always breed before trying this crap?

It would have been a good idea to see if the bullet went through the book before he held it against his chest.

There at one time was something called " Common Sense "

I think they actually tried it with another book at first and it stopped the round just not the 2nd time....

The moral of the story is, use the same book.
