I had a Llama Mini-Max II .45 that was a smooth, compact shooter except for 1 thing: It would put every case right between the eyes! As much as I liked shooting that cheap little .45 at the range, I knew it was just a range toy and couldn't be used in SD. Could you imagine getting a hot case plunking you in the eye every shot? Yikes! It wasn't worth taking to a gunsmith to fix the ejection issue.

An ejected shell from an M249 bounced back at me and scratched my eye. Lesson learned about eye protection at the range.

My turkey shotgun is a 3" 12 ga shooting 2 oz loads. The recoil isn't too bad because it's a slow push you can roll with. Once a turkey came in from the side and I had to twist around awkwardly to shoot it. I didn't realize it, but I ended up with my shooting shoulder resting against the tree and couldn't roll back. Now that hurt. Won't make that mistake again.

Beretta Tomcat took a vicious bite outa me, really a very nice little .32, but the rear of the slide is shaped like a spear. My big mitts had no business trying to hold onto that tiny little gun.

Too many to remember.

The ones I can remember are hammer bite from my 1911, slide bite from the first time I shot a small semi-auto 380, and I've caught a web of skin in the ejection port when I've tried to rack out a jam. I'm sure there are more . . .

Life is good.
