I've heard the phrase "shoot yourself in the foot". Here's an example.

Man Thought Steel-Toed Boots Would Stop a .45-Caliber Bullet

It doesn't take a smart person to guess it would be a bad idea to shoot your steel-toed boot with a .45.

We can thank this guy with a grimace for teaching everyone how bad of an idea this was.

"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."

3. It's probably a bad idea to shoot yourself in the foot when you have your foot in your mouth, too.

I guess millions of years of evolution is wasted on some people!

4. There's a group of guys on social media...

Who take a picture of a loaded pistol pointed at their 'nads.

Yup, one guy's gun did go off, he now does a great Michael Jackson imitation.

7. The article indicated that he shot behind the steel toe shield.

So, he didn't actually test his theory.

He could still be right about the protection. I hope he heals quickly so he can re-run the test. Scientifically curious minds want to know.
