GRAPHIC: Stupid Guy Thought Steel-Toed Boots Stop Bullets

Steel toe vs. 45 results in extremely painful scenario. 

It doesn’t take a smart person to guess it would be a bad idea to shoot your steel-toed boot, hoping it’ll stop a .45 caliber bullet.

We can thank this guy, with a grimace for teaching everyone how bad of an idea this was.

The images surfaced on a forum and they are extremely graphic, so proceed with caution.

“This guy and his co-workers were discussing whether a steel toe boot would withstand a round from a .45, so what do do you think would be the best way to test this theory? YUP, you guessed it. Good thing he wasn’t testing his hard hat.”

Based on the placement of the shot, it almost appears the shooter missed the steel toe insert in his boot. This might be a blessing in disguise, preventing metal shrapnel from spreading throughout the foot.

Let this be a not-so-friendly reminder to remember your gun safety.
