Those there shotgun shell mines can blow half your foot off.
A 9mm one can blow off a toe.
A .223 like an M-16 uses can liberate one of 1 or 2 toes.
They will reduce your forward momentum for sure unless you're just really lucky.
These things have been around for a long time and are the reason the military is real fussy about picking up any unexpended cartridges in any
operation to keep them from being used against them later in improvised traps.
You think that stuff is bad?, you should see the stuff in the military publication entitled "Mines and traps", they can't call it a booby-trap manual
because then it would be against the Geneva conventions...
An HE grenade with a tripwire attached to the pull-pin inside of a 55 gallon drum with 5 or 10 gallons of gasoline, rocks and other injury causing
missiles, buried and camouflaged along a road or trail is just one example of what is in that manual, the tripwire can be tripped by passing troops or
vehicles or pulled from nearby by friendlies ......OUCH!!!
Things that go BOOM are fun for some strange reason, I'm sure most of you would agree.
