Re: Rick Perry's "Golf" ......
I can't, 'cause I need glasses to see, but if I could see without 'em, yeah, I'd shoot without eye protection. I'd skateboard without a helmet and pads, if I could skateboard. I ride a bicycle without a helmet.
Yes, if a cartridge decides to let go I'm liable to get a face full of gas and brass, and will really wish I was wearing safety glasses. But if a car hits me when I'm riding my bike I'll wish I was wearing elbow pads, knee pads, padded gloves and a helmet.
Safety gear is great, but I think the need for it has been overblown. People shot without safety glasses for years and years (and years and years and years and years), and relatively few of them were injured in gun accidents.
