I once had a piece of 9mm brass eject from my P-95, bounce of the roof of the range and come down and sit atop my classes. Burned liked the dickens.

Ricochets are crazy things. I have a buddy that had a shooting range on his property that was a small valley. It had to be a good 50 feet down if it wasn't 75. You could shoot out to 1500 yards. A ricochet went back up and over the other side and hit someone miles away in a farm. They weren't seriously hurt, but hurt. It was an odd caliber (I don't remember which), so it was tracked to him. The compromise decision was that if he agreed to never shoot there again he wouldn't get sued. Bummer, that was a fun range to shoot belt feds at.
