    Lets see the people that can join the half moon club!

    We all know this has happened to a lot of us in the past, who has a half moon cut on the forehead from a rifle scope, our very own famous @Royal27 has been willing to be the first guinea pig...here's his photo. Witnessed by @gizmo and @ActionBob . royal moon.jpg

    Please post your pics...:ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:

    Been there done that, but no pics. Once and only once have I done that, about 25 years ago with a 7mm Rem Mag.

    I'm fortunately not in this club, but it was my CZ in 505 Gibbs that got Royal. After passing it around at Gizmo's place and several guys, inexperienced shooting big bores, took turns. Both Royal and I carefully explained how to hold and shoot a big bore, having them dry fire, etc.

    Then Royal was gracious enough to show everyone how not to do it. :sneaky::rolleyes::confused:

    Back in the late 1960's or early 70's, I heard a man at my local rifle range, refer to this type of injury as:

    "Weatherby Eyebrow".

    @ActionBob that rifle hit me a couple times but thankfully never hard enough to draw blood. ive never had a rifle draw blood on my head but ive had a double rifle cut me real good with the front trigger! worse part is it happened when I was showing some other people how to use a double rifle :oops:.

    He says he didn't know where they came from, but they were at his place, so....

    @gizmo even made me hold his beer while putting the bandaid on.
