    Yea, I got bit once. I was leaning into my Ruger 77 338 Win Mag at an odd angle and when I touched off the round, the scope hit me right in the forehead. It only left a red mark. It still faintly there. I won't make that mistake again.
    Good Shooting, John K

    A friend had a Marlin 1895 .45/70 with a scope and warm handloads.
    We were taking turns trying to hit a soda can at 100 yards without any luck.
    After 20 rounds or so, I crept up on the scope and fired, managing to nail myself above the right eye. No blood, just a bruised ego, although thankfully I did hit the can.
    That was 24 years ago and it hasn't happened since.

    not happened to me ever. but I have done other things like that, both barrels on my maroke 12 gauge went off and knocked my ass unconscoius cause I did not shoulder the gun correctly.
