    Saw that happen with a US made M9 in the Marines. A slide to the face will scare the sh@t out of anyone. You are a lucky man. I always wear glasses. Also nothing like hot brass down the front or back of a flak jacket. Some things coming with shooting I guess.

    I wear prescription glasses so I do not wear shooting glasses. I always wear hearing protection. Last week I had a piece of hot brass get between my glasses and my nose anyway!

    Burnt my eye lid in the middle of a match with the same thing. I quickly switched from the cool sweat band look to the ball cap look and that stopped. Really difficult to concentrate on the front sight with a blister on your eye lid and tears running pretty steady from your dominant eye.

    Before that at a Saturday practice I had taken a hot round right on the eyeball. Monday I made an appointment to get my eyes tested and a prescription pair of shooting glasses made for me. Took a month to get in and by then my eye was fine but I was a scared puppy for awhile. Going blind in one eye would have gotten me a medical discharge and I wasn't ready to leave. At least not under those circumstances.
