Scope on a 12 gauge? It sucks!!! Just wondering if anyone's ever been hit and got the famous black eye from a scope on a shotgun. Gun season starts monday here so my dads friend and I were sighting our Remington 870's in and I recently put a scope on mine along with a slug barrel and didnt have a good grip on the gun and the thing came back and busted my nose. My nose might be cracked not sure but its swollen and hurts like a mother. Got a cut on my nose and a real nice cut under my eye. Let me hear about your experiences with gettin hit.

it left a red mark for a while, but its gone now, that will teach me to put my eye to close to the scope!!!

nope kid you need to go to a 20 gauge or a .410
hey buddy you dont know what im capable of shooting or not shooting i just put the scope on and i crowded it a little bit 2 much and it jumped back farther than i thought it was partly because i didnt have the grip i thought i did on it but you dont have 2 be a smartass about it and say i need a smaller gun :roll:

I usually don't use a scope, but the same thing happened to my friend. He had to get 6 stitches under his eye

That's the first time I've ever heard it called that...

Putting a scope on a shotgun is like putting one on a slingshot, if you cant hit it open sight you've got parkenson's(sp?) disease, really suck, or it's out of range. Hell my old Auto 5 12 Gauge doesnt even have a bead on the end and I shoot skeet all the time. My friend had to get stitches too after his [left handed, crazy shit] 30/.06's scope bit him..

before you shoot the gun with the scope put grease around the lip of the scope so you looks like "spuds mckenzie" when it hits you in the eye. lmao
