    Don't have any guns with brakes. I did try to see if we could get a flash from my 14.5" AR15 with A2X flash hider. We couldn't see a thing.

    As for safety glasses, usually wear sunglasses. Then it got dark, took them off. That is not me. It's my little brother. I was the only one there with regular safety glasses. I should have let him borrow mine but I didn't think of it at the time.

    usually the brakes on guns put out a hell of a flame trail through each port ..

    the best things to see a fire ball on are muzzle braked big bore handguns i think ..

    something like a 500 with a multi port brake ..

    Your ammo/brand/powder makes a difference in the flash also.

    While Im guilty of seldom wearing safety glasses people do loose eyes.

    Funny story...or its funney to me at least. I was the only person that would wear safety glasses at my old funeral job. We had an autopsy case and werent getting the embalming fluid to flow properly. My co-worker grabbed the middle of the Y incision and pulled it up to look inside and blood mixed with embalming fluid shot straight into his eyes. I laughed at him as he blindly made his way to the sink.
