I've been shot up the nostril, shot inside the throat, deep inside the ear, had some nasty bleeders on my cheeks and neck and head, even had my front teeth shattered once - that was a really bad feeling. That being said, I try to wear something to protect my teeth as much as possible (mouth guard or shemagh wrapped over my face - those ski masks don't do shit since the BB's pass right through).
Any time I have a chance to wear balistic or safety glasses I'm wearin em. They are far more comfortable, never fog up, and go better with your kit while still offering good eye protection IMO.
I have AOSafety glasses from CrappyTire and I love em.
Few individuals would view themselves as barbarous, no, instead they view themselves in a different light, a distorted reality that justifies who they are and what they have done.
