I know that the clips that hold the targets at the range I sometimes go to are big, heavy, steel things. If you hit one you can ricochet into the ceiling. I too saw a guy take out a light fixture this way once.

I believe I'm thinking of the Smith model 39 -- self loader, fires flush seated HBWC .38 Spl only -- strictly a target pistol -- well, one of them must have had a soft sear, because with a full mag it went full auto.
First shot was touching the 10-ring at 4 o'clock.
The other shots just kept going up, and up, and up ...
Which explains a few of what you're describing.

I've always wondered about this I saw a shooter do this with a 44 mag. He raises the gun over his head and as he brings it down it goes off shooting out a florescent light above him. I couldn't believe it.
I like to go to the range when there isn't a lot of people around. It's a lot safer.
I was at the Bass pro range in Springfield , Mo. I go there often. Last trip I noticed a new bullet hole in the bench in my regular lane. It wasn't there last time. Cool thing is the range officers are watching behing a glass wall all the time. They enforce the rules too. Especially the 1 shot every two seconds rule. I wish I could do rapid fire there, but it's a no no.

Range near me just shut down for just such things.
Now, we must all fear evil men. But there is another kind of evil which we must fear most, and that is the indifference of good men.
The first time I ever went to a range (packinnova took me), there were a group of 3-5 dudes (collage age), goofing around and one of the geniuses decided that shooting the rented gun up at a 45° angle was a good idea...well needless to say a few florescent tubes exploded and came crashing down...they were promptly asked to leave by the range staff.
I am continuously amazed that the absolute stupidity of some people. It like...actually makes my head hurt...
After my brother bought a house he found .22 holes in the roof. The previous owner aka idiot got at pigeons on the roof one drunk evening. Pest inspector no one spotted them until after the sale was complete. Cost my brother a good junk of profit on that house. Pigeons turned out to be a problem because an neighbor liked feeding them. So they would hang out in the hood waiting for the free meal. He stopped feeding them when it was explained to him that it would get the pigeons he liked killed. Though we did have to show him a few dead bodies, first. Shame but I won't eat a city pigeon aka winged rats
As to ranges ya all gave me one more reason to stay away from them
Abort the Obamanation not the Constitution
Those who would, deny, require permit, license, certification, or authorization for me to bear arms are as vile, dangerous & evil as those who would molest, abuse, assault, rape or murder my family
I have been to 3 ranges in Memphis, 1 in Nashville, 1 in Dallas TX, 1 in Ft Lauderdale and 1 in Indinia. ALL of them have had shots in the celing, mech equipment, floors and even the side walls......
