3 Responses to Why You Need Eye Protection When Shooting a .50-Caliber Rifle When Lying Prone in the Snow. Or Anywhere Else, Really

  1. I would say you need eye protection when you are anywhere, shooting anything (including a .22) from any shooting position.

    There used to be an advertisement, back in the 40’s or 50’s, I think (long before my time) that advertised a particular brand of car, I think it was Oldsmobile but it might have been Buick. The tagline of the ad was “Ask The Man Who Drives One.”

    A few years later, the Industrial Safety industry did a particularly effective riff on that ad in their campaign for the use of eye safety equipment. It was a poster that said something like

    “Eyes are precious. Ask the man who has ONE.”
