Are steel toe boots tougher than a shotgun blast?
Well Taofledermaus is about to find out just how tough every man’s favorite footwear really is.
You really need to this test on if steel toe boots can stand up to the mighty 12 gauge shotgun.
So what would happen if you shot yourself in the foot with a shotgun while wearing steel toe boots anyway?
This was a question Taofledermaus had so he went out and tested this scenario. An improvised wax slug was the first to target the boots. The blast was stopped but the steel toe boot has seen way better days. The one-ounce deer slug was the next test and the boot was destroyed.
The take home lesson of this video is guns are really powerful. Be very careful and follow all gun safety rules, even when wearing steel toe boots.
