**Make sure your eyes are on tight**

or else a piece of hot brass will land in between your face/eyes and the glasses.

Got a bad burn on my face yesterday from shooting my g23

Had that happen to me once, it's no joke. That hot brass burned a nice little blister on my eyelid before I could get my glasses off, and that wasn't long, believe me!!

Is it just me, or have others noticed that hot brass from a .22 seems hotter than larger calibers? Seems like it to me.

I have picked up spent casings that have fallen on the bench (indoor range) from my 9's and my .45 -- .38 too -- that don't seem as hot or uncomfortable to handle as those darn 22's when they bounce back. Those suckers hurt!

+2, after getting a nice burn from where a round landed on the rim of my glasses I've started wearing a hat!

A long time ago, I had a bizarre ricochet that bounced off the side of the wall back at me and it hit my eye lid, I was using regular prescription glasses......ouch

I hate getting pelted by the brass from the guy to the left of me. I always try to get the first lane on the left.

So, your first one Eh?

It's even better when you are in competition and are looking for a great time on a course... You learn to clear em quickly as possible...

I have had a couple two to four (who counts after the first?) and they definitely hurt!

Get Ice on em ASAP - tougher to do in the Winter as no one carries Ice Chests in the winter time...

Baseball Cap and a pair of Wiley X's with the "Eye Environment" insert has reduced the chances greatly for me!

Hope it heals quickly!

And this is why I like stuff happening to other people, so I can learn from it and not have it happen to me.

I always wear muffs, shooting glasses that rest directly on my eye brows to make little or no gap between the glasses and my eyes, and also a hat with a nice brim. Had brass bounce off the top of my head, but I don't think I'll ever have brass get stuck somewhere.

I saw a Korean gentleman drop a hot 50AE case right between his eyes.

He did the unhappy dance for about two seconds, sweeping everybody with a rental Desert Eagle, before disappearing under a pile of RSOs.

Wear form-fitting glasses so that there's no gap large enough for a piece of brass to fall into or rest on, and wear a baseball cap.

As soon as a brass goes in between your glasses and your face, you
immediately turn ninja and start doing different karate moves,LOL!

Funny you should mention that! I just had that happen last week at the range. First time it has ever happened...

Edit to add: This happened shooting a P220 so it doesn't just happen with Glocks.
