    I was firing in a GSSF competition a few weeks ago with my G30 .45 caliber. As you guys know, you have 15 seconds to fire 10 rounds at different intervals for a total of 50 rounds.

    I was doing really well. I was on track to score 500. When my target was at the furtherest interval I pulled one of the shots a bit to the left. I slowed down to correct my fire. Then remembered the time limit.

    Hands sweating and heart pumping I caught an ejected .45 caliber casing between my right shoulder and the bottom of my right jaw. Needless to say, it was hot. I didn't have time to sweep it off so I let it cook.

    When I got home my wife noticed the new, perfectly round, .45 caliber size circle burned into my skin. For a few days I had a lot of questions about how I acquired a circular burn.

    About two weeks ago I had a 22 LR shell from my Baikal MP161K rifle rebound off of something and wedge itself under the bottom edge of my shooting glasses. That left a nice little 22 LR casing mark burnt into my flesh. Thankfully there is not enough room under the glasses for a 9mm casing...

    Trust me, you're not alone. Anyone whose thrown a few thousand rounds down range has worn the brand.

    The way I shoot, modified Weaver with my 23 pretty close to my face, I've caught several round dead center of my forehead. Head's too hard for the rounds to stick and cook, they just bounce off. :) Some come in butt first, leaving that perfectly round mark and primer impression. Some come in nose first leaving a nice half moon cut. Such is life on the range.

    Worse is when spent brass goes inside your eye protection and gets dislodged on your cheeks.

    My son has had several 9mm and 1 or 2 .40cal casings go down his shirt. I always tell him before we start firing that if a round goes in your shirt, NO Matter What-- keep the barrel pointed down range! I remind him every time that the burning brass hurts much less than what comes out of that muzzle. So far he's been in really good control even when he's getting a blister inside his shirt.

    I've had that happen a couple times. Not fun. I wear a hat now.

    Good one!
    (But what she did was really unsafe. )
    Luckily I had more control than that. :)
