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.
