I was thinking the same thing. I like iron sights better anyway. Not a big fan of scopes. Now I have one more reason lol. Not going to keep me from firing other people's rifles with scopes though. Just be a bit more cautious next time

But is the scope alright ? .

Seriously though thanks for posting. I didn't realize that this could cause such an injury, a serious bruise yeah but that must have been hard!.

Default Scope Eye

Dude, it is so common it is referred to as, and I'm surprised nobody already chimed in, "scope eye." I worked on a range for years. It is SO common. Pretty much had a case every very busy weekend. Even got a little case myself as a youngin' -- still a little visible reminder thru eyebrow if one looks carefully.

ASK PLASTIC SURGEON TO LOOK AT IT TO MINIMIZE SCAR!? You don't need it obvious for life...

We had a paramedic get caught in the eye with a scope. Not as bad as yours, but she had a heluva shiner. And it took her a while to live that down. She was a good sport.

Bag of frozen green peas will be your best friend for a day or two. When they start to thaw, toss the (unopened) bag back in the freezer. Conforms well to shape of face.

Don't ask how I know that.

I do have to point out though, I'm glad it's a superficial dumdum wound and not something more drastic, like a full on perforation.

Live, learn, and laugh.
