I will confess that, long ago, when I first shot a scoped rifle (I hadn't grown up with them), I cut a nice half-moon slice above my eye. Bled like the devil.

 

But at least I had shouldered the gun......

I did as well. Once! :lol:

I would like some 8mm Nambu ammo if I could find it at a reasonable price.

I have an 8mm Nambu so I am also in the market.  Saw two boxes in a local gunshow 15 years ago or so. They wanted $30 each box. I passed and have seen none since.

One advantage to the not "tacticool" calibers.

Not really.

 

There was only 3 calibers in stock when I went to Academy last.

 

.450 Bushmaster

 

.22-250

 

and 7mm Mag

 

Taught a guy how to shoot while I was back in college that kept putting his thumb across the back of his hand when he was shooting a bottom feeder.

 

He did it twice, so he's got the idiot scar on both knuckles of his left thumb.

 

Sometimes, pain is the best teacher.

And in a nutshell, this is the problem with many (especially younger) people today. They have been protected from criticism, potentially harmful actions and consequences for poor decisions. 
STUPID is supposed to hurt, that way you don’t do something STUPID more than once.

After the first time, I let pain be the teacher. 

 

When he did it again -on the very next shot- I added ridicule (LOTS of ridicule) and peer pressure.

I did find some on gunbroker but too expensive. I do have some original rounds.
