It's typical to not to wear eye protection for that style of shooting, although they often at least make kids wear it. You'll note that they're all shooting air rifles which have a reduced incidence of back splatter. That being said, most small bore (.22) competitors go without too. I shot competitively from age 12 through college, both smallbore and air, and still have my eyes. Watch the 5 min of televised Olympic shooting and count the number of people wearing eye pro.

Half the time the only eye protection those .22 precision shooters use is an index card over one eye.

Hahaha.

Sorry, guys- if you need the concept to be explained to you, I suggest you ask your parents.

Now that Google had decided to open up Chromecast a bit, and Allcast had been updated to screencast to the Chromecast unit again, it should be fairly easy to stream from either your phone or tablet now. You could transfer the DVD file to either and steam it.

It works fine on my HTC One and Nexus 7.

I guess I should plug in my Chromecast and see what it does. I haven't even managed to take it out of the box yet

So, I need to buy an app for the tablet, and a dongle for the TV. Not bad...

From the reviews, it seems to still be somewhat buggy. I'll keep an eye on this situation...

It comes across to me that they really don't give a **** that they have the Olympics there. They have had all of this time to prepare things, and it looks like almost nothing is ready. Everything is still dirty and trashy, some of the courses aren't even finished yet, 2 days out, and the water thing... way to give a **** mother Russia. And apparently, they are $51 billion in on the preparations, and it still looks like ****, and isn't even close to ready. Hell, they virtually built a new town within Beijing for the Olympics there. All they had to do in Sochi was spruce it up a bit, and pile some snow into ramps. Granted, comparing Beijing/China's economy with Russia or any Russian city isn't exactly fair.

You're looking at it the wrong way.

who thought holding any big event in russia would be a good idea? someone who is not aware of bread lines it seems.

Have you heard that everyone is getting hacked too?

Richard Engel: Sochi 'Open Hunting Season' for Hackers - NBC News

Yes, Russians are all inherently hackers.

Do people not know that it is not a free country? Bringing their personal info cell phones into the country? Hello?!

You can’t bring anything you work on under the assumption that your hotel room isn't bugged, etc.

Well, that is what surprised me initially. Olympics... in Russia? Why? That aside, since they somehow managed to get the gig, at least ******* try and do it right and not make yourself look any worse than you already do.

I'm looking forward to the summer games, Sudan 2020...

Oh, and I'm feeling pretty uneasy about the terrorist threat in Sochi. They already had that rail station bombing last month or whenever it was. I've seen where US intelligence says there is a high likelihood for an attack of some kind during the games.
