Certainly something to put into the 'memory banks'...could save someone else some construction bucks.
Glad your neighbor was understanding.

We hit it with .22lr no penetration. Hit it with the .40 version of the same federal 9mm. 165gr I think? Too lazy to get up and check the box Ball jumped pretty good no dmg to the ball though just a scuff. Saw the round hit at the base of the burm just slightly off of where I imagine my buddy was aiming. Maybe a foot or so. But I have no idea what his sight picture was so I really can't go off that. The 9mm didn't penetrate obviously I hit the ball multiple times and no scuff. With me shooting I wasn't able to focus on whether the rounds were hitting the ground as we had a few targets up and my buddy was back hollering at his kid to stop picking on his little sister. Makes me wonder what happened to the .22lr and the other 9mm if they did something similar to the one that hit the house.

for all the rounds i've put down range and been there when others did--the list of odd things is quite long
and apperantly still growing.
another vote on your manning up and fixing up.

Seriously though... no flaming here.
That's a great post and lesson learned.
+1 on Hopyard and oneshot... didn't read the whole thread. Great minds...

Quick update. Talked to my buddy today on my lunch break. Happened to catch him when he came in for his shift. He went to his neighbors house to make sure we were all cool Sunday after church. The guy said not to worry about fixing anything they are just going to hang a picture over where the round penetrated. He said we are good though and that it was a lesson learned on both sides.
