    Thats gonna leave a mark.

    Well, thought I had enough ammo for the firearms(except 12 ga, need more) and
    then I go and trade the OSS45 for a PT840c.Love the gun, but wife is kinda sick of
    me spending money daily. So I thought too myself" I'll start shooting the .177 cal pellet gun" just
    to stay in practice and have some fun. Long story short, went outside today, about 58 degrees and
    sunny, and set up a target in the back yard made out of plywood. Took awhile to get sighted in and
    was starting to irritate me as I wasn't hitting center from about 15 or 20 feet. Stopped, took a long
    breath, birds singing a happy tune in the background, and let it loose......
    BAM, center shot, then the @#$%^& pellet came back and hit me right in the forehead, raising a nice
    welt and drawing a little blood.......Then the laughing starts from the wife, not one of my better moments.

    I hate it when that happens!

    I did get hit by a decent sized piece of my own 9mm round shooting a steel plate in match one day. No damage but I knew it hit me!

    When I shoot my air pistols in the backyard, I tip the top of the back-board (plywood) towards me. The pellets ricochet into the ground. I usually take two cement blocks and lay a board for a shelf and shoot at "objects of opportunity". A bag of army men from the Dollar Store makes for tough little targets.

    Oh come on and man up, I used to have a cheap little .22lr pistol that drew blood from me with almost every pull of the trigger. Still have that little .22, haven't found anyone I dislike enough to give it too yet...notice I said yet.

    Glad to hear your recovering from being shot in the head. Now be careful out there.

    It's nice to be able to get outside up here. I'll always make it a point to wear a cap with the bill pulled down pretty low to try and avoid shrapnel. We had a guy at out ISPC match get a piece of copper jacket stuck in his face off of a steel popper.

    “…democratic socialism, the great utopia of the last few generations, is not only unachievable but that to strive for it produces something utterly different – the very destruction of freedom itself. As has been aptly said: ‘What has always made the state a hell on earth has been precisely that man has tried to make it his heaven.'” F.A. Hayek

    A very good reminder to wear safety glasses, even with a BB gun, or..."You'll put your eye out with that thing!"

    The Declaration of Independence states that the sole purpose of government is to secure the inalienable rights of life, liberty and pursuit of happiness. And, if it fails, the people are justified in getting rid of government, not the rights. - Judge Jeanine Pirro

    The first lesson in economics is scarcity: there is never enough of anything to satisfy all those who want it. The first lesson in politics is to forget the first lesson in economics. - Thomas Sowell
