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.

Is that similar to frangible salt?

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

They can't use real salt in Kommiefornia and the flies are getting out of hand. They gotta use

Did you have your body cam running? Iím sure the FLM (Fly Lives Matter) rep will be requesting the footage under the Freedom of Information Act.
