I just saw this over at Sig Forum. Has anyone ever heard of anything like this before?

Only accurate rifles are interesting.

That’s got to hurt!!!! Reminds me of a buddy that tried to shoot a lock off one time almost took his nut off just a smoking hole in his tin pants stuck in his leg about a inch from his nut… he said it burnt like hell.

Joe Cool, Gotta love the DIY family planning, well almost.
Read something on You Tube that the target the 50cal. guy shot at broke into ten pieces and that it was one of those pieces that came back and tagged him. Don't know if this was fact tho.

My sig pro in 40SW came back and hit me in the gut, shooting steel plates 25 yards, stung real good! Left a big black bruise for about a week. I dont shoot plates no more!

I also will never shoot another lock!....Doesnt work anyway!

I was shooting a 22lr pistol at pop cans i had shoved down over a T-post and a shard of ricochett came back and stuck in my bottom lip, bled like all hell!!!. My ex brother in law shot his own brother with a ricochet from a 50cal muzzel loader off of a gravel road at a 50deg angle at over 300yds!! bullet hit is rifle stock and glanced across shoulder. It never actually penetrated it just kinda pushed about 3" of skin back.

This just screams "EYE PROTECTION! EYE PROTECTION!" I know I have to do a better job of using mine. Remember "No eyes, no shoot." Really I would not have seen this happening. Who would of thunk? And I do realize that safety glasses may not have helped if he would have taken that slug square....OUCH!
