Default Gunny gets idiot mark from M18

I watched Gunny on the outdoor channel last night. He was shooting the new Sword M18 358 sniper rifle. First shot and the scope cut his for head over the right eye leaving (Idiot mark). He required a little first aid. I had to laugh because I think lot of us have done this at one time or the other. (but usually early in our shooting days) His guest was Navy Seal Craig "Sawman" Sawyer who helped design the M18.

That M18 is one hell of a rifle. Scope 5-25. Carbon fiber wrapped barrel . 10 round mag. Plus, red dot mounted at side angel for close quarters shooting.
It had all the bells and whistles. Even night time laser.

Just about everyone that fires my Wby the first time gets a scope cut.
I don't crawl the stock and the steel tube Weaver can get you if you hold it loose or a whole lot of guns will.

The first time my son shot my 30-06 it hit him in the eye. But luckily I always make him wear glasses when he shoots. His are smooth plastic. So he was not cut. But he said it whacked him pretty good just the same.

Depends on what you paid for the glasses... I'd rather have a cut eyebrow than a scratch on a Transitions lens.

I still have that copy of that show on my DVR from when it originally aired earlier this year. I was going to watch it when it was going to air and as soon as I saw him say you want to record it then I knew it was that one he got the scope.

That is not the first one of him getting it on TV. Think it was his show called lock n load when he got popped the same way and I recall him saying that was not the first time then.
