Occupational Hazard..

So the "Shots for Tots" event went very well. We raised a thousand dollars cash and two huge boxes of toys! Everyone had a great time and we met some new shooters as well.

I do have a new story to tell however. I guess if you are an RSO or instructor long enough you may get this diagnosis on a form sooner or later:

A totally freak accident, bullet ricochet from a pin while RSO on the right side of the range. It did crack the cheekbone.

I guess if I need to start a story at a bar I can always start off with the "I got shot in the face" story!

Oh, it was a Glock 9mm. Shooter nor audience noticed my injury or leaving the range! No need to scare the horses, right? 


  1. Glad the Shots for Tots turned out well.

    Oh man, sorry to hear about your accident and very glad it wasn't more serious.

  2. @Supi- I was very lucky! Or not depending on if you wanted to test the safety glasses. The good Lord was looking out for me I am certain!

  3. I'm glad to hear the "shoot for tots" went well, But I'm not glad to hear you was hurt..

  4. I guess you found out not to put your nose where it doesn't belong. I hate hearing that stuff with my many visits to the range. I have a helpful video for you from yesterday.

  5. @Odie, I saw that video, And he's going to see the same thing I saw (-: LOL I hope!

  6. @Odie- Funny, I have been to a lot of ranges and generally do not see shooters like that on a regular basis!

  7. GAH!!!

    I'm glad all turned out well and you are OK!

  8. Glad you are okay, and glad the shoot went well!

  9. @Brooke! Thanks!

    @Old- Thanks!

    Everyone said: "That's just his head, not a vital organ on him."

    We all had fun and the shoot went so well!

  10. Shooting steel is fun but the occasional "thunk" of something coming back tends to put me off.
