Man Is Convinced A Steel Toe Boot Can Stop A .45 Caliber Bullet



Observe: Photos linked on the backside of the article are usually not for the squeamish.

Based on a publish on the Northwestfirearms discussion board, these are the outcomes of a person who was satisfied a metal toe boot might cease a spherical from a .45 caliber bullet, and determined to check it. You already know, together with his foot within the boot. Actually, I do not even assume he hit the metal toe in any respect (which might be a superb factor on account of all of the shrapnel he’d have in his foot now).

“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.”

Personally, I am nonetheless not satisfied this is not just a few fool who by chance shot himself within the foot and made up a narrative that unintentionally makes him sound even dumber making an attempt to cowl it up. That stated, I am a agency believer {that a} metal toe boot completely CAN cease a .45 caliber spherical, however provided that it is thrown on the foot and never fired.

Photographs of the aftermath HERE, however you have been warned. I am undecided he’ll ever have the ability to put on flip-flops once more.

Thanks once more to Closet Nerd, who agrees he ought to strive a .38 subsequent. There is no manner that will not work.
