    I catch splatter pretty regularly but I've never had an intact bullet come back.

    Hopefully it is something that doesn't happen often, that thing hurt. :wtc:

    Maybe I should construct my own light armor vest or something to put under my shirt. Problem was, I was outside today, and it was 94 degrees or so.

    When we were kids we'd always make goofy movies..my neighbor who was several years older filmed them and they're rather hilarious..

    well the other neighbor kid who'd notoriously beat the shit out of his little brother was int he one scene and had an airsoft...
    His little brother comes around the corner and we have the action shot where the camera is lookin up the barrel and he's got the mean face going and the typical cheesy movie "die mother fucker/eat lead"
    the next scene cause it cut's is coming from behind him facing his brother running around the corner...well the gun ended up having 1 BB in it and he shot his brother from like 10ft away in the middle of the forehead.
    :rofl:

    It's awful to laugh cause he could of lost an eye but if you see the video it's fucking hilarious cause he starts screamin you fuckin asshole and falls over and has a huge welt on his head. :mamoru:

    Even though I've shot up my fair shair of tv's, computers, and monitors I can't say I've ever been hit by a ricochet.:hs:

    Same here, its funny to look at the carpet in my shooting range after a busy day there is brass/lead flack all over the ground from splatter. I've heard some buzzes around me but nothing has hit me

    Shooting steel targets with the AR got hit with splatter. 357 Sig came back and hit me in the head right above my eye, didn't really break skin but it felt like it hit pretty hard.

    I've never been hit by the actual bullet in a ricochet, but I shot a toilet with a 12 gauge once from what turned out to be a little too close range. Porcelain shrapnel hurts and is a pain to pick out of your skin :o

    Back before I knew any better, I was shooting at a target on a brick wall with an air rifle and had a pellet come back and catch me in the shoulder. :hs:

    So when this happens, it's generally when shooting metal things?
