So TTAG caught up with ‘ole FPS at the Lucky Gunner blogger shoot. (Note: no bloggers were shot during the event.) We learned that FPS wasn’t Russian and that he was repentant. He promised our man Finn he would be more diligent in the eyes and ears department. If only for the children! And here is Comrade FPS not wearing either. Well, he might have some inner ear protection thingie jammed in his aural canals, but he sure as hell isn’t wearing eye protection. Whilst blowing something up with a gun. How stupid is that? Totally. But don’t take our word for it. Here’s a caution from FN, makers of a rifle that looks a lot like the Bushmaster ACR in FPSRussia’s hands at the end of the video. . .
ALWAYS WEAR EYE AND HEARING PROTECTION WHEN SHOOTING.
Unprotected, repeated exposure to gunfire can cause hearing damage. Wear ear protectors (shooting earplugs or muffs) to guard against such damage. Wear shooting glasses to protect your eyes from flying particles. Allow proper distance (eye relief) between a scope and your eye when firing a scoped rifle, rifle or shotgun. Do not use unorthodox shooting methods that could cause the rearward travel of the slide or bolt of a firearm to contact your eyes, face or hands. Always keep a safe distance between the muzzle of your firearm and any persons nearby, as muzzle blast, debris and ejecting shells could inflict serious injury.
Shooters are easily blinded by particles flying at subsonic speed. Imagine the damage a piece of plastic can cause when it’s moving at supersonic speed.
I like watching people shoot things with really big guns. I enjoy videos of people blowing shit up. But this guy is starting to piss me off.
