Hopefully the late target did not reproduce before he decided to play target. The planet does not need that kind of stupid.
That right there is a prerequisite of winning one of those coveted Darwin Awards...

Another media buzzword claims a victim.

"Bulletproof vest" vs. "ballistic vest".

Yes, libs -- there IS a reason that using the correct terminology is important.

Personally, I'm not callous enough to crack jokes at the expense of a dead man, even if he was truly being stupid rather than simply being under the influence of alcohol/narcotics which may have been present at the party in which this tragedy took place.

Sure, the whole incident was undoubtedly the result of foolish behavior, but for that very reason it strikes me as all the more of a shame rather than a source of amusement.

At times like these, I honestly cannot help but wonder how different the man in this article was from the legions of folks on firearms-related forums who argue incessantly over the effectiveness of certain cartridges, often expressing extremely foolish opinions which go as far as stating that certain cartridges are practically non-lethal and can be stopped by enough layers of clothing let alone a ballistics vest. Perhaps he himself was once such a person?

At any rate, I would sooner presume that this man's death was the result of ignorance combined with impaired judgment due to intoxication rather than genetic inferiority limiting his intellectual capacity, and even if I'm wrong, I still feel it's in poor taste to poke fun at a dead man.

Alcohol and gunpowder shouldn't mix. It's a recipe for disaster.

This part I agree with.

Sure, the whole incident was undoubtedly the result of foolish behavior, but for that very reason it strikes me as all the more of a shame rather than a source of amusement.

I've never seen anyone yet on a firearms related forum who says a certain caliber is ineffective and willing to personally test out their opinion on themselves.
