Hot brass down the sleeve is just as much fun.
I was shooting a match a couple years ago, the guy next to me was shooting a 10/22 and during the sitting/rapid fire stage an empty case landed on the back of my neck and just sat there, searing the skin.
The stage is timed so I had to shoot through it or lose valuable points. I managed to score a 100 for the stage but also so earned a nice welt on the back of my neck for a few days.
I've seen the hot brass dance many times over the years! I'll never forget the time when I was on RO duty and a guy came out with his (rather attractive) girlfriend/wife to sight in his new 10/22. The girl was sitting to his right and facing him while watching him shoot. A hot casing went right down the front her blouse and proceeded to burn a rather sensitive area. That blouse got buttoned up to the neck in a hurry!!
Browning SA-22 is a classic for sure!
I was shooting off the bench (Left hand ejecting Martini-Henri .22) and a spent case went passed me and bounced off the guy next to me's eyelid
He wasn't wearing eye protection and he stopped shooting
I then spy him stood with the RO just at the periphery of my vision:
Idiot 1- "He" *pointing at me* "Just nearly blinded me with a spent case"
RO- "Oh yeah?...How did that happen then?"
Idiot 1- "Left handed ejection is dangerous for normal shooters- make him put a sheet up between him and me"
RO- "Hmm. A question....Were you wearing eye protection?"
Idiot 1- "Ah, well, no because it interferes with my scope and I've not got me bifocals and..."
RO- *cuts off Idiot 1* "Maybe if you were wearing eye protection like he is then you wouldn't have got hit in the eye with hot brass"
Idiot 1- "Hang on-"
RO *cuts off Idiot 1 again* "No, put your safety glasses or don't bleat to me. Right?....Right!"- and walks off.
Warhammer 40000 is- basically- Lord Of The Rings on a cocktail of every drug known to man and genuine lunar dust, stuck in a blender with Alien, Mechwarrior, Dune, Starship Troopers, Fahrenheit 451 and Star Wars, bathed in blood, turned up to eleventy billion, set on fire, and catapulted off into space screaming "WAAAGH!" and waving a chainsaw sword- without the happy ending.
