I have been hit in the face enough by fragments to be very convinced of the need for eye protection.

One bit cut my chin wide open. Was a tad impressive for a bit but responded to direct pressure. I also once had a 50 AE piece of brass fired by someone else bounce of my forehead for quite a bump. It bounced off a side of a line and came back at me.

Also, I saw a 45 ACP bounce off a tire and give a guy next to me a really hard whack in the chest.

As far as hearing protection - of course.
