If only my old school desk had an air rifle on it! It might have provided Sister Mary Xavier with a bit of extra time to think about what she was doing before she began to verbally abuse pretty much everyone in the class. As Paul Simon sang, "It's a wonder I can think at all!"

I have to be careful where I setup my resetting steel target. The pellets ricochet and hit my garage one day.

Definitely. Anyone who uses steel targets for pellets needs to be aware of the ricochet issue. Doesn't happen often, but it does happen. Never use a steel target, indoors.

A pellet ricochets when it hits a glancing blow and fails to flatten. The worst culprits for pellet ricochets are the tiny, very light steel spinner targets designed for air guns. These have produced the most ricochets for me. I don't recommend ever using them in a situation where a ricochet is a serious issue. I only use them, outdoors, and we have no close neighbors or buildings to worry about.

Heavy steel reactive targets have produced the fewest ricochets for me, but, of course, they still need to be light enough to work for a given distance and gun power level. Even heavy steel can produce a ricochet, though, if you shoot at one from an angle. If you're careful to shoot at them, face on, ricochets are rare.
