Blame me, huh? That's just like you to make excuses. Hope you feel better soon.

Looks like Black Bart won that round.

Default Shooting Glasses

I have had near close calls in the past with flying hot brass in the eye when shooting with sunglasses. It had always been when shooting around autoloader pistols and rifles that throw spent brass upon ejection. About 1992 or so I finally bought my first pair of shooting glasses. I cant tell you how many times since then that spent brass has literally bounced off my glasses or rolled off my forehead over the top of the glasses. These designs like the Wiley X ones I'm using fit tighter around my forehead and offer more perpherial protection than my Ray Ban sunglasses or any other sunglasses I've had.

To right is Ray Ban Predator sunglasses. Direct protection from objects flying at your eye but not much protection from things rolling down from your forehard into eye. The frames fit looser, can move around more, and have more gap above eye. In the middle is the Wiley-X shooting glasses I bought in the 90's, and on the right is the Wiley-X PT-1's I just bought with dark tint to use when shooting with scope in bright light. The PT-1's actually have three snap in and out lenses in clear, rust, and smoke. Also, they have optional inserts inside for script lenses.

That's just damn unlucky, but since Spitty was involved, I am going with Not Surprised.

I am really glad that you were not seriously harmed and hope there is no permanent issues Goju. That is just freaky dumb luck right there.

I wear a pair of old Oakleys that I got years ago playing beach V-ball. They ride tight on my brow, so an average shell wouldn't fit down to the fleshy parts.

I have had them bounce off the booth and end up in my collar and on the crook of my arm before. Brass gets hot in the hurry.

Good luck on the recovery Goju and don't go handing out any advice with that ammo Spitty!!

Dang. I haven't used the optical credit on our insurance policy in a couple years. I think I'm going to see if I can find something that fits tighter.

Sorry to hear that and I hope your eye burn gets better there quickly Brian.

Same thing happened to me a while back, and I'll be damned, Spitty was involved in mine too!

I must admit, that is one of the oddest shooting injuries I've ever heard of......get it? LOL! Although I wasn't there in your shoes, I can't help but think that I would have at least slammed my eyelid shut. But like I said, I wasn't there, maybe there wasn't a way to slam an eyelid shut at the moment? Wow.

Default A little too late

First off , very sorry to hear , Ouch!.
Our instructor at the range advised us to wear a baseball hat for that specific reason, if we don't brig one he'll make us wear a foam vicer.

And ladies, no cleavage show at the range, those burns leave permanent scars if the sun light touches them.

My 17 year old has a wonderful cleavage scar from a casing gone rouge.
