      Anybodys Kimber ever...

      Eject shells into your forehead leaving little bloody dings? Mine has taken to doing it about once a range trip ( usually around 100 rds ).

      That's usually indicative of an extractor and/or ejector issue.

      If it becomes too bothersome, you can try adjusting the extractor tension by hand or just call Kimber and send it in.

      Thanks for the tip but that looks WAY over my head at this point. If it continues, or worsens I might get it at least looked at. I would rather pay someone local a small fee than deal with the whole shipping/loss of gun for weeks routine.

      And in the meantime, a baseball cap pulled low right above your shooting glasses might be in order. Hell, I do that anyway.

      Once isn't bad in 100 rds . If it gets worse you might have it looked at. Cap works good in repelling shells. Jerry

      Had not thought about that...I will have to check myself out next time I shoot.

      I've never had a case hit me, but my Colt occasionally throws back some gun powder reidue that hits me in the face and burns a bit. I thought about wearing a ski mask when I shot but I'm sure that would go over real well if anyone was to see me.

      Got a great visual of that!! You would get some strange looks and even a few laughs, at least from me.

      I'm wondering if anyone would actually believe the excuse that I was simply protecting myself from the powder, and not about to go commit some evil act.

      I had it happen

      I bought a new Ultra Eclipse and i was getting wacked in the forehead and glasses pretty often... along with FTF about every other magazine..
      Sent it back to Kimber, they sent it to the custom shop for treatment, adj this and that and its fine now..
      A couple things of note:
      1) I was using reloads bought at a gun show, and they recommend against that..
      2) Keep a firm grip and stiff wrist.. Limp wristing it can cause FTF's as well as no name (cheap) ammo.
      3) I now also always wear a ball cap when shooting.

      Good luck.

      It happened to me today with my Pro Crimson Carry II, a perfect red circle
