Caught a fragment to the left eye. Itís sore and red right now. You can never be too careful.

We were shooting on the back porch today. Busted out the Bug Assalt, took aim, and pop. Salt ricocheted into my eye.

Always wear eye protection kids. Hope to make a full recovery in a few minutes

Thank you for the timely reminder. I will be sure to wear proper PPE Friday when I break out the Bug Assalt and the cooler for the first pool side happy hour of the summer.

Iíve had that happen a time or two. I quit using normal salt and now use reduced recoil salt.

Is that similar to frangible salt?

Try pepper. It's ground finer and won't ricochet. You're welcome. laugh
