I wasn't sure where to post this topic. It's a serious subject that could get humorous (sort of). I've heard the opinion that bars are concerned about the danger of steel tip darts. I suppose they are more dangerous than soft tip. But is this thinking justified? Personally, I've never seen anyone seriously injured by a dart. I've warned my dog not to lay down on the rug under my dartboard when I'm practicing and won't throw until he moves. I've had to do some fancy footwork on occasion when practicing barefoot and dropped a dart. I heard about a drunk that turned his dart around and poked himself in the eye with it on his backstroke. Saw two guys settle a dispute with a duel, steel tipped darts at ten paces...turn and fire. Neither of them stood still and no-one was hit. I did see a fight ignite when a guy reached to retrieve his darts and someone threw a dart close to his hand to startle him. I guess he thought he was being funny, but it didn't turn out that way. Oh, and there was the time a guy for some reason was digging around in his ear with a soft tip dart and someone bumped his arm.
