Although thankfully it never happened, frankly I'm very
surprised it did not... I have fond memories of playing shoot'em up in our long, open basement, shooting at each other BB guns no less.
While we did have various pieces of furniture & boxes stacked up as fort walls, and we had a few cheap plastic football helmets, we never wore anything for eye protection.
Yup, young and stupid, yet somehow we survived without anyone losing their eyesight.
Ah, those were the days...
