Nothing screams “I’m bored!” quite like letting your friends shoot you in the chest with an AK-47 at close range just to test the effectiveness of your body armor.
And that’s exactly what one American troop did. The unidentified troop stood at the ready while holding a bulletproof plate against his chest. His Kurdish squadmate took aim at point blank range and rattled off a round from his AK-47. Amazingly, the body armor held up and the American troop walked away unscathed.
Obviously, this is a terrible idea and incredibly dangerous. Don’t try this.
If this troop finds himself bored again, I recommend pushups or stripping and cleaning his weapons.
