Darwin would be proud to know that even if the rest of the animal kingdom doesn't always behave in ways that support his ideas on the matter that humans are eager and willing to provide overwhelming supporting evidence for his suppositions.

LOL, seems to me there are any number of easier ways to get laid. If getting shot is the only way, you may be better off doing it yourself, if you know what I mean.

That's a hard question to answer, lets just say equality was not born at the second the shot was fired!

I have been involved in testing vests several times, but never on a 'live' target!
This why it is essential we teach our kids about guns, sex, and drugs!
Take the fascination out of the mix and they will, HOPEFULLY, make better decisions when they are placed in environments like this one.
