Steel toe vs. 45 Caliber Round, Who Wins? [GRAPHIC PHOTOS]

It doesn’t take a genius to realize shooting a .45 caliber round in his foot is not the best idea, even if it is a steel-toed boot. At least we can see the result of trying to pull off a stunt like that.

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 take gun-safety seriously.
