youtube channel stunt works out poorly.

The book supposed to stop the bullet wasn't thick enough…

what can one say ?

The lesson here would be : a practice shot at just the book might have been a good idea.

Did they not think to test the "armor" first?

There is the 'Box O' Truth,' Mythbusters, and I am sure plenty of videos on youtube that would have shown them that even an encyclopedia wouldn't stop a .22 let alone a .50 DE.

Without looking it up again the .22lr went through over half a dozen or so hardback books.

A websearch on the subject of books stopping bullets would have been a lifesaver here…

I use this image of two developers "testing" the first bullet proof vest for sales to the Chicago Police force in 1923 a lot in engineering training. What are the odds that this was the first shot? Zero. But that is what it means when a developer stands behind their product.

Darwin Award nominee?

Not just a nominee, I think we have a winner here!

Did they use a steel plated Bible?

A .50 cal Desert Eagle. Mingya.
Those Bible pages better be printed on Kevlar. And I want the Big Print edition too.

Perhaps if she would have just shot him in the head the extreme density would have proven sufficient to stop the projectile.
