Well, for reasons of personal safety and to actually reach the
desired effect of escape velocity, you're possibly right.
However, it strikes me as more UNIXy to leave it as is. That is to
say, if you point the shotgun at your foot and pull the trigger,
your foot will ideally be blown clean off on the first try, no
questions asked. Also, there's nothing inherently wrong with just
planting the PC in a huge crater, either. ;)
