Shell through the mask

Anyone have a problem with getting little cuts from shell coming through when shot in the mask?

First time it happened I figured it was a fluke, but the last 3 times I have been shot in the area about .00-.5 inches under under the lens I get little cuts on my face from the shell

Happens to me too and I think it is more common with winter paint due to harder shells. Doesn't hurt too bad, just a little sting to know you are alive.

I only get this when I'm shot I the venting, I wear I4s and the way the lens seats into the mask prevents paint or shells from getting anywhere near my eyes. However I took a 2 foot away shot to the mouth vents and it cut my lips and made them go totally numb for 20 min.

Just makes you glad we don't just run around with shop goggles anymore!

I don't think I've ever gotten shell through my mask and Stilgar, CJ and Mar love shooting me in the face...

I use a Proto Axis Pro if it means anything.

I've had a few cuts over the years. The worst are definitely to the lip. My wife got freaked out once when I came home with shell fragment shrapnel stuck in my neck over the ol' carotid.
