Did you ever got hit by a bounce out dart?
I made a topic a few week ago about my problem that since i got my new darts, i have a ton of bouce out darts. Sometimes i litteraly have to just out of the way! My blade 4 is destroying my darts points, because they fly all over the room. My question is: is there someone who ever got hit by i bounce out dart? I think i am next!

Well when the dart bounces out with our brain we are attempting to catch the dart and sometimes works but sometimes it hurts xD

When I was a kid we used to play a game where you would see how much you could score in 5 mins,a mate on his last throw took off to retrieve the dart only to have it bounce out and hit him in the eye! He was ok and it didnt stop us playing, bloody idiots lol...

Had a few near misses but the closest was from a set of spring loaded darts, I hit the wire and must have got it just right and the dart bounced past me, I just moved out the way in time, was enough to put me off using the darts though.

No, but I worry about our cats. Had one decide to plop down right under the board the other day. I used a couch cushion to make him a lean-to for protection.

yep. had one land in the top of my foot once. i was warming up, threw the last dart and started walking to the board immediately. to be honest i looked out of the the window on the way to the board and the next thing i knew the darts was sticking in my foot. it took ages to stop bleeding.

Not as a player, though some where pretty close. When marking a game, I once was too slow and a dart landet in the shoe. Those are damn expensive shoes and now I have a little whole (or mark) in there. LOL

Before throwing, always make kids and pets move out of the bounce-out-area.

Got the same problem my friend. I really got to remind myself to close the door, because they really love watching darts.

Have a friend who thought he could catch it. Learned his lesson, too.

I probably shouldn't play barefoot all the time, but I do. I always seem to dance out of the way. I have stabbed myself in the palm installing flights before.

A friend gets bounce outs all the time. He caught one in the pant leg and hung there. This past Tuesday at our LOD I was walking toward a board to retrieve my darts he got a bounce out that came an inch from hitting me in the eye. Normally we wait until someone is done throwing before retrieving our darts but we were warming up and I did a dumb move.

Also you don't want too sharp of points. If you are bouncing out of a Blade4 your points may be too sharp.

I took one in the top of my right foot many years ago when I thought it cool to play in sandals. Since then it's been tennis shoes(trainers for the UK folk) when at the oche for me. I'm not the sharpest tack in the pack, but darts stuck in body parts generally don't feel good.

I've had more than my fair share of near misses when scoring. Funny how darts sometimes bounce out sideways from a board, especially when they are going for doubles on the scoreboard side.
