Man Shoots Himself In The Stomach (GRAPHIC VIDEO)

There's got to be a less painful way to find out if your body armor works.

So just why did this gentleman shoot himself right in the stomach? As Gizmodo succinctly explains, Fer testin'!

The man appears to survive his close encounter with a bullet, but -- surprise! -- he is in immense pain.

The video is a little like Derek "Tex" Grebner's YouTube clip in which he shoots himself in the leg, except for the fact that Tex discharged his firearm on accident.

On the bright side, at least the vest tester didn't shoot himself in the crotch.
