    It has happened to my wife, and she did the right thing and lay the gun down pointing down range and then started dancing.

    what kind of range do you go to where they limit how fast you can fire? I've never been to one with a rule like that...
    The range that i belong to has a double tap rule, they will overlook triple taps if they know you and know that you aren't dangerous doing such.
    basically they don't want people bouncing projectiles off the steel plates in the ceiling,off the machinery, the concrete walls and floors and bouncing around the lanes.

    I do all my ammo testing and rifle to 100 yds at a range run my the Dept. of Conservation. They have a lot of rules but it is a heck of a facility with skeet, sporting clays, bow range, shotgun pattern range, classrooms, 100 yd pistol/rifle range with 20 covered bays AND heated bathrooms, loaner spotting scopes, free targets NAD good brass picking - more. But they keep a 3 second shot rule. Why do I go there? It's $3 an hour per booth and they define an hour loosely. I have a few target acquisition drills that I can do and other place$ I can go for rapid fire. I do 1-2 competitive events a month so I'm not begging for rapid fire. I can set op a chrono, take notes, fiddle with sights - there is an advantage to it. I've checked all my shotgun loads with all chokes at all distances - free paper on a measured slab with a rolling gun bench. Did I mention $3!

    A few weeks ago, while at the range shooting my PT1911, I had a brass bounce off of the partition and land on the right side of my neck (I was wearing a hoodie that helped wedge it right against my neck). I had to stop myself from not doing the hot brass boogie. Instead I continued to aim down range and used my off hand to brush it off before I started screaming obscenities. After that I rapid fired my last few rounds in the mag to let off some steam. Then for the next week after I had everyone at work asking about the "hickie" on my neck.

    I've had that happen many times. There was one time when the brass bounced off the side board at an indoor range and managed to lodge it's self between the lens of my glasses and my eye lid. Had a nice little .45 acp burn on my right eyelid for a couple of weeks. Didn't loose control of the gun though. I just laid it on the bench and then took off my glasses. The shell case was stuck to my eyelid. I had a bottle of water in my range bag and poured it over my eyelid to get the shell casing off. I've had lot's of casings go down my tee shirt, sweatshirt, and one when I was a kid down the back of my pants. It was summer and I wasn't wearing a shirt. I just figure if you're going to shoot, you're going to catch a hot casing now and then.

    Guess I've been real lucky with the ranges I go to then. How "strict" are they on the time between rounds? I'm all for the rule if it gets the jack asses off the range...but I'd be upset if they were sitting there with a stopwatch.

    I think I've caught a brass in my collar every time I've qualified with a firearm in the military...whether with the M-16, M-4, or the M-9. Guess I've got bad luck...

    I thought I was the only one that had that happen to!
    I was shooting my para (I think it was) and for some reason one of the spent cases flew straight back and low, I was wearing a ball cap as well as my glasses, the case went over the lens, under the ball cap brim and right into the side of the glasses frame and was firmly wedged between the frame arm and my face, burned like the devil too.
    shook my head side to side, but NOOO! it wasn't going to drop out!
    had a nice little battle scar for about a week.
    MY 1911's just do not throw brass any direction except far away and to the right usually.

    This should never happen, but it unfortunately does.

    Maybe its just me, but usually hot brass landing on me doesn't bother me too much, other than one time I was shooting my 22 when I was little, it ejected the round, hit a board, down the back of my shirt and into my underwear.
