Would you ever shoot yourself in the foot to find out if a steel toe boot was bulletproof? If you managed to read through that entire sentence, you’re smart enough do the complete opposite of how this guy answered that question.
Despite it being a VERY, VERY bad idea, the man in question didn’t just think it’d stop just any bullet, he shot himself with a .45 caliber.
You can’t get more stupider than that right there.
How exactly does someone end up shooting themselves in their own foot? There must have been a lot of money involved, right? Nope. As the story goes, it went something like this:
“This guy and his co-workers were discussing whether a steel toe boot would withstand a round from a .45, so what 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.”
Honestly, if this guy actually shot himself in the foot to test a bulletproof boot, we’d be surprised if he even had a hardhat.
Since this is the internet and this story did come directly from a forum, this could be completely legitimate or simply pictures from an accidental discharge where the story got severely blown out of proportion.
Whatever really happened, this guy and his partially missing toe show us that we should never shoot ourselves in the foot – if anyone really needed the reminder.
