anyone else ever done this?

I know I will be laughed at for this but I want to know who will come out and admit they.ve done this. I recently just got a new weatherby .270 dear rifle with a competition barrel and a scope. It has never been fired. I was out with my dad shooting it and getting the scope dialed in. We were using a beam to support left hand ( barrel support hand) and he adjusted the scope for him for a few shots. We only had about 20min so Being in a hurry I decided to leave the scope focused for him, drew down, pulled the trigger and BAM the phucking scope kicked back and split my forehead wide open. I had blood running everywhere. Now I have a big gash and a swelled up bump right above my eye. lesson learned I only wish I had a better story to explain me new souvineir

I can honestly say i was never hit by the scope...but as much as I hate to admit it...I will admit I gave myself a black eye with a bolt action gun when i was a kid. Put my face a lil too close to aim down the sightrail and yeah..

Re: anyone else ever done this?

Thanks for sharing.

Many years ago, while qualifying at the range, I thought I was doing great for about 5 minutes. After 25 rounds, I had 24 in, 1 near . That was an awesome improvement from my best score, 19-6. I stopped for a while and when I got back, there were 35 in and 3 near. I didn't shoot any other rounds since the first 25.
The dude right next to me was using my target unintentionally.

Comes up I was not as good as I momentarily thoght...

Re: anyone else ever done this?

Wat you did is commonly known as "crawling the scope" . If you get too close to the scope and don't have a proper cheek weld on the stock, any big bore centerfire rifle will give you a scope tattoo. .....And yes, I have had one.
