OK this is a serious question, just out of curiosity - is it actually possible to be able to resist a shot from the weakest gun available these days through Iron Vest training?

I read in 'ripleys believe it or not' that a guy who worked out heaps got shot, and the bullet didn't even penetrate his skin!

We should have a category on this forum for the craziest ass s.hit that people come in here and write. Kind of like a hall of shame.

This one would get my vote.

So, does this answer your QUESTION by any chance?

Iron Shirt focuses on minimizing damage from blunt force impacts, not minimizing damage from bullets fired by "the weakest gun available". I remember there being something about Iron Shirt keeping a spear from penetrating you, but a spear and a bullet are completely different.

IMHO I've only ever seen Iron Shirt practiced by sicko perverts who enjoy hitting each other and have a fetish sicking spears into places where spears shouldn't be stuck.

I understand the supposed theory behind the real Iron Shirt Qi Gong, not counting the idiots who practice the side show circus tricks with the spear, but have NEVER seen anything that remotely lives up to it. Some of the Okinawan body conditioning I've seen and felt is far more effective and practical....but I digress. This is an Iron Shirt demo from a UK lady called Joanna Zorya...much more use to Martial Artists than most of the crap posted:

VietPanda...

Allow me to paraphrase what you just asked...

I just saw something on TV. Is it real?

BB guns are used to shoot rabbits and squirrels so they must be able to do a bit of damage. Maybe a potato gun would be a better bet.

I seem to recall that the Boxer rebellion posed a similar question some time ago and the stack of dead boxers at the end of the British guns answered the question to some extent.
