I went to the range last night and a .380 case pegged my son in the face about 10 feet away from the firing line. It was very weird as most of the brass my friend was slinging was flying at a “normal” arc, rate and distance. The one that hit him came out very hard and punctured his face. I wouldn’t have expected this kind of damage from a small caliber casing – the rim did the damage from impact, rather than a sharp cut from the case. Quick trip to the ER for 5 stitches and he’s all good. Mom’s not very happy, but now the kid has a fun new story to tell. One thing for sure, I will now carry some medical supplies to the range. Have you ever been punctured by a flying case?
