...first time I saw him after the incident he said: "Hey! You're the guy who shot me!" ....with a big grin on his face!
Still my apologies continue!
Glad you weren't seriously hurt.
Lesson learned I hope .
Level 3 Kevlar bullet resistant jockstraps. Anyone interested in an NES group buy?
Had that happen to me shooting plastic jugs with the same caliber,cast bullet must have hit a rock. Came back and hit me upper chest left a welt but here's the topper the bullet fell into my shirt pocket after hitting me and yes I got a witness. Left a bruise and a bit sore for a few days.
Whatever I was doing before from now on I am backing up a good ten yards at the range.... I don't have my own ricochet story yet, thank God, and want to keep it that way
I hear the LOLs never stop when Dick Cheney goes upland game bird hunting now...
Titanium St. Christopher medals?
So now it's a key fob?
Someone please post the .50bmg ricochet where it takes the guy's ear muffs off. That guy is very, very lucky. If 690 grains travelling fast enough to forcefully remove your hearing protection ever hit him in the forehead it very likely would have killed him.
OP, glad it wasn't worse. Modify ammo(frangible) and distance.
One to the chest beats two to the head...
I was RO'ing an indoor match with steel. Tons of splash back was hitting everyone, jackets would bounce off the steel and hit the concrete floor and walls. I think just about everyone got hit. I was Ro'ing with one hand around my neck to prevent taking one in the jugular. Complete shit show.
Pardon no, I was countering the jockstrap-made-from-modern-materials (Kevlar) proposal with a St.-Christopher-medal-made-from-modern-materials (titanium) proposal. (Since there were so many WWII stories).
But a jeweler could build one pretty small fragment into one personal key fob.
I did a bowling pin match at one of my local clubs Sunday before last, shooting my usual IDPA gear. (Gov’t 1911 .45 with 230gr plated bullets moving at around 725fps) and after my second run I went over to help reset and saw this...
To OP: Glad you’re ok bud!! I shoot a lot of steel challenge and Walls of steel and occasionally get hit with fragments, mostly when watching others shoot. General rule is at least 10 yards away and preferably further. I’ve taken a few stingers throughout the years but I don’t recall ever getting a bleeder.
I thought of this when I read the OP.
Reach out and touch yourself.
Almost Bugs Bunny-class sound effects.
That whining sound is called "God's ringtone". If you hear it, don't ignore it.
If you slow the video down, you can see where the piece coming back at him skipped off the ground about 20 feet in front of him. He's a lucky man.
Gotta love a guy who autosnipes...
