I briefly checked the latest changes and it should be compatible with current version of OpenXcom:

I just got into OpenXcom - and am trying this shiny new mod.

OpenXcom works perfectly fine as it is - but when I try to load up this mod, it crashes. Any idea what I am doing wrong?

Yes, it's not a shiny new mod.

I heard there were some changes recently, I'm not sure how it functions at the moment, but for most of its history, AwesomeGuns was designed to work with OpenXcom version 1.0, an archaic version which uses an incompatible file structure. You might not be able to play it with modern OpenXcom.
Possible solutions:
 A.) Check the installation instructions on the main post here or on the AwesomeGuns website for additional info and to make sure you're doing everything right.
 B.) Try playing it with OpenXcom version 1.0. Keep in mind you won't be able to use very many modern mods with this version, however there are plenty of 1.0 mods in the Old Mod Portal Archive. Keep in mind there may be a bit of a learning curve getting used to version 1.0, but once you get used to it, it's no more difficult than modern OpenXcom.
 C.) If all else fails, run an older version of AwesomeGuns with OpenXcom version 1.0. I know it worked before.

Hopefully CanadianBeaver or someone else can provide additional info as my knowledge in this area is limited.

P.S.: One benefit to playing it on 1.0 is that it gives access to several old abandoned mods which can't be used with modern OpenXcom.

Awesome Guns works with latest OpenXcom versions (@Warboy1982 implemented fixes)

How I see, the problem is in Armored Vest Corpse definition. Somebody knows if recently this configuration settings has been changed in OpenXcom game?

Yes. OXCE recently had an update requiring all corpses to have their items correctly defined where previously they were allowed to be incorrect if the corpses weren't used outside of the battlescape. This broke a lot of mods, but is fairly easy to fix. It was version 7.1 IIRC; I think things should still work if you run OXCE version 7.0.
