Wounds to extremedies are WAY less likely to be fatal with medical attention.
Wearing body armor typically decreases the risk of a fatal gunshot wound by over 60%
Getting shot in the head is unfortunate - but much harder to achieve than in HALO or CS.

The torso is 5X as large of a target as the head and is much less maneuverable than a head (or any other extremedy).
In fact, many experienced shooters, especially professional shooters, only aim center of mass (chest).
A great majority of inexperienced shooters will pull handgun shots low in anticipation of the recoil.
If you are around firearms alot (competition, hunting, LEO) body armor is cheap insurance.
