    That is a very good rule

    You mean you'd go back after getting shot once?

    There's a local indoor range here that I have a similar issue with. It tends to only happen with .45 though. Never been hit but I usually end up with a few bullets down by my feet at the end of the day.

    Never had a problem with 9 or 380.

    I try not to go there much, but it's relatively close to work.

    In all my years of shooting, and they are many, I have been hit by one ricochet and that was at an outdoor range. It was mine off of a .44 magnum I was shooting at bowling pins. Those things are hard believe me. I saw this thing tumbling in the air then "WACK", right in the chest. No blood, just surprised the heck out of me. I would say that this indoor range has a problem that needs fixing.
