There's a funny thing in here where I agree and disagree.
There's so many situations where only a face is presented as a target, or where one stands up/ leans out into a field of suppressive fire, or pure oddball accidents, that my personal opinion
is if you aren't wearing face protection any damage you receive is your own goddamn fault
I most often go without when I'm outdoors, and that's my own, personal, adult problem.
If a group that I play with says "Don't do it" I won't shoot anyone in the face. Otherwise, the "Bubble of invulnerability" which extends from the top of the helmet to the sternum seems pretty retarded.
Same with wearing safety glasses without a lanyard. What the fuck were you thinking?
