Hey everyone.. I wasn't sure where to put this.. I figured injury section would be appropriate.. I was at the local club with my wife and some friends.. I had forgot my safety glasses at home and figured i could just use my sunglasses that I keep in my car since I was just watching and not shooting.. I was standing under one of the canopies at the range watching and talking to one of my buddies at the range.. The RO called for eyes and ears so I put mine on and continued talking.. All of a sudden it felt like someone hit me on the face with a hammer.. A round had ricocheted off of a plate rack and came back at me.. the fragment or round went through my sunglasses and in my orbital.. my vision is perfect but I have a fractured orbital floor and at the time of writing have a piece of metal in my eye socket.. I am still at the hospital waiting for them to decide who is going to do the surgery or if they want to do it at all.. I would just like to call out and hope everyone is wearing safety or ballistic rated glasses and not just standard lenses and sunglasses.. if I had been any further to the right.. I could have lost my eye.. Thanks for reading.. Hope this post makes everyone think about their eyewear and their safety..
