Agreed But as i carry my rifle slung vertically upwards even if you were a good foot taller than me and on a slope then for your face to be anywhere close to the muzzle of my rifle your man bits would be rubbing dangerously in the small of my back!!!!!!!!!!!!!
As we havent been formally introduced id consider that a far more dangerous situation.
