Whoa! I really don't think it's necessary to resort to name calling here. This is not the first time I've seen the "tsk, tsk" when members see a child shooting without eye and ear protection. While I insist on it during target shooting for my own kids, I get where you're coming from as we have all gone hunting with a 22 and certainly would not be wearing ear protection if we want to hear the tree rats. That said, when sitting at the bench shooting a couple hundred rounds downrange, actions tend to get fouled and an OBD can throw brass out the ejection port and do some real damage, not just to the shooter but to people standing nearby. The membership here is very safety oriented, please try to take their advice in the manner intended, they simply do not want to hear the heartache story of an injury that could have been avoided through simple protective measures.
And my hat is off to you, sir
for making a young man very happy and bringing him up in the sport.
