    It finally happened...my scope met my forehead.

    Yup, you read the thread title right. I went out today with my father-in-law to sight in our rifles and muzzleloaders. We each went through our rifles with no problems. It finally got down to making three good shots with my .50 cal. muzzleloader to call it a day. I loaded up with 100 grain Pyrodex, but the bullet would drop just a bit lower than I cared for. I upped the load to 150 and that did the trick, except I wasn't paying attention to how close my eye was to the scope and didn't adjust for the little bit of extra kick.

    Needless to say, I now a have a nice gash over my right eyebrow. It's not very big and didn't bleed much, but it's sore as hell and swollen.

    Indecision may or may not be my problem.

    OUCH! I haven't personally done that, but have seen it done many times before. Ironically, the last couple times were with muzzleloaders too!

    Moron. I say that with great affectation, of course

    Never popped myself, knock on wood, but 2 years ago we went camping at my wife's aunt's cabin, and my brother in law did that. Cut himself down to the bone. It was pretty awesome. Especially when he just about fainted.

    Here we go with a thread revival.

    I was 19, and a friend and I went out to play with his 30-06. I had not zeroed the rifle to myself so I was trying to adjust to his setting. Needless to say I crept up on the scope in order to get rid of the floating bubble, also he had no rubber grommet for your eye, and BAM scope hit me. Cut the shit out of my forehead, still have the scar above my right eyebrow. So, congratulations River and welcome to the club.

    Signature thanks to jgreco138
