How tough are those industrial safety steel toe boots anyway?
Will a .22 long rifle bullet make it through a steel toe boot?
Watch this video and see 22plinkster test out that classic question.
Many folks wear steel toe boots for safety on and off the job site. They are meant to keep the wearer somewhat safe from objects dropped on the foot.
Well, how well would a steel toe boot do against a .22 long rifle bullet?
In this video a pistol and a rifle chambered in .22 long rifle are shot at a pair of steel toe boots that luckily, no one was wearing at the time. Incredibly, the .22 bullets did not penetrate the boots. Steel toe boots win this round.
