On another site an instructor was teaching a lady to shoot a KT P3AT and a hot casing went down her bra. She quickly reached for it with the hand holding the gun and shot the instructor in the leg.

I shot my brand new Gen 4 26 yesterday and my hoodie actually doubled as a brass catcher.

And we are assuming, in a real life or death situation, that this will not happen? Or that we will, at that point, not notice it?

To all the haters, I don't like you; you know who you are. Back to the topic. Good post. Many new folks on here, so it never gets old. Let me add, also easy to get your arms burned. If you are shooting a solid two hand grip, you can get a piece of brass landing in the inside of the elbow. That burns and leaves a mark. When in serious competition, I usually shoot with long sleeves and a buttoned up shirt, all the way to the neck. Not at all a good look, but effective. On those hot summer days, shooting casually, some sweat on the old body, that brass landing on the skin does burn.

Good points on being safe. No room for drama queens waving a firearm around, ever!!

Ouch... I had this happen to me once. I was shooting my 20sf with my hunting load... 200XTP at 1200 fps. The brass bounced off the lane divider and lodged in my shooting glasses... I immediately felt the pain and heard the sizzle... set the gun on the rest,glasses off and swiped it away along with some skin... I still have that scar above my right eyebrow. I usually ALWAYS wear a hat to cover that spot... the one time I didn't I got scarred...

I've had several very close calls of this very same thing shooting the glock 21 gen 4.
No problems with the 21 gen 3 though.

Is your 23 a gen 4??

So this is the new normal? Gen 4 ejects landing on your face, in your glasses, in your cleavage?

I've been watching this Gen 4 thing for over a year, is this what Glock has become?

I have shot and carried Glock for over 13 years and NEVER had a problem!

Is this the legacy Gaston wanted?

Is this a newb limp wrist/spaghetti arm problem?

WTF?

That happened to my girlfriend this summer. She was not very happy. She now sees why I tell her to wear safety glasses over her reading glasses.

I've had a few burns from hot brass. The worst one was when I had one go in between my IBA and neck while I was running an Army course/drill, no time to stop I had to suck it up. I can only imagine a female getting hot brass down her bra, ouch!

If I'm in a shooting range, would it be unreasonable for brass to bounce off of the wall 6" to my right? I'm sorry you feel that way and jumped to that conclusion.

Thanks anyway for all the comments and prospects of other noobs learning from my mistake

"The brass bounced off the lane divider"

WHAT difference would gen 4 or 3 make??

I don't think the dividers gen would make a difference!

Same thing happened to my ex-gf. She was wearing MY extra eye pro that had adjustable arms (that were adjusted to fit me). The first 3 rounds from my Gen 4 19 went down her shirt, the 4th landed right between her eyelid and the loosely fit eye pro. Its not just enough to wear eye pro... As the OP stated: Make sure it fits!!! Needless to say she wasnt very happy and had nice lil casing burn on her eyelid.

I had a freak bounce off the lane divider that went up under and got stuck between my cheek and glasses. I never even thought about it coming up like that.

Don't shoot a Browning semi-auto 22 with loose long sleeves, great shooting rifle but it can dump the brass right on your forearm

I am another dummy who had to learn the hard way to wear a cap while shooting. It doesn't matter whether the brass is ejected wrong or bounces off something funny, it still hurts.

Are you serious or just brand new to the shooting sports?

ANY semi-automatic firearm can throw brass anywhere at any time.

OK, my M1 puts all eight in a nice little pile but that's the exception.

Luckily, you weren't born a Lefty; we have been dealing with (and adjusting) to brass our whole shooting lives.

We call it, "Get over it."

Rimfire is not fun BUT seeing my friend dance when a 5.56 flew down his tucked in T-shirt was simply incredible.

He somehow managed to maintain muzzle discipline but man, what a show that was!

That was probably 3-4 years ago and if I bring it up in polite conversation, he still grimaces.
