Dr. Strangelove: I agree with you one-hundred percent. However, I think that eye protection should be worn away form the firing line also. I was shooting at a San Diego gun club one afternoon and I walked to the parking lot the chat with a friend. The parking lot was about fifty yards from the firing line and the dirt back stop was at fifty yards down range. While I was talking a .45 hard ball bullet ricocheted from the butts and hit the car door next to me hard enough to put a visable dent in the door. This much power on a hundred yard ricochet could have put out an eye.

Semper Fi.
