(Scroll down for video) A man in Russia, shot his best friend in the head after being challenged to test a new bulletproof helmet, according to a video uploaded to the Internet.
Luckily for both of them, the person on the receiving end suffered no injuries after the helmet passed the test.
Shooting experts pointed out that the shooter could have been injured by the bullet as it bounced off the helmet. The video that was uploaded to YouTube and has gone viral, shows the man pointing the gun at his friend’s head.
His friend was standing just several feet away. The shooter fired the gun, and the impact caused his friend to fall back a bit. Both men were unarmed and they seemed to have really enjoyed the experience.
“When I was a kid, I had an old style steel army helmet. I shot it point blank with a .22 pistol, and it just put a half-inch deep dent in it,” one man wrote on YouTube.
“To test the helmet properly, they have to do it again to see what happens without the helmet. Only then can we really gauge what protection the helmet offered,” another person wrote on YouTube.
