ALWAYS use your personal protection equipment when firing your guns. This afternoon I was shooting my little PA-63 in 9X18. I was shooting steel targets at 25 yards and the entire jacket from the bullet came back and hit me on the cheek. It stung and brought some blood. I always wear glasses as well as hearing protection. Had I not been wearing glasses and the jacket had hit me in the eye, it would have made for a very bad afternoon.
