The stunt? That old classic… hold a book up in front of your chest and have your girlfriend shoot you in the heart with a pistol. With the right book and the right pistol, this might be survivable. The book used? A volume of an encyclopedia. So… not necessarily the worst choice. I’ve seen some beefy encyclopedia volumes. The pistol? A .22 would probably be good. A .380 might be survivable. A 9mm… you’re starting to stretch your luck. So what’d they actually use?
A Desert Eagle chambered in .50 AE.
