People shoot at metal targets all the time. Everytime I've shot at metal targets, I've always been told FMJ only, no hollow points, and wear shooting glasses. How close to these targets were you guys? FMJ fragments when it hits the steel. I shot steel targets as close as 7' before without being hit.dmcblaster said:Shooting metal targets is so stupid. A buddy and me was at the shooting range and my buddy got hit in the head with a 45cal because it bounced off the metal target that some ignorant [email protected] was shooting at. My buddy is very lucky he didnt get injured. Im lucky too. I seen bullets flying around everywhere. There probably 6 people shooting metal targets when this happened. My buddy went to his knees screaming because he was so freaked out. The people stop shooting and only 1 of the 6 came over to see if he was alright. Once we found out the bullet just grazed him them stupid ****s started shooting at the metal targets again. We gathered up our guns and threw them in our cars and got the hell out of there. I would not recommend anyone to shoot metal targets. Common sense should tell you that the bullet its probably gonna bounce off. Come on...
IPSC Handgun Competition Rules USPSA Version January 2004 said:2.1.3 Minimum Distances Whenever metal targets are used in a course of fire, precautions must be taken so that competitors and match officials maintain a minimum distance of 7 meters (22.96 feet) from them while they are being shot. Where possible, this should be done with physical barriers. If Charge Lines are used to limit the approach to metal targets, they must be placed at least 8 meters (26.25 feet) from the targets so that the competitor may inadvertently fault the line and still be outside the 7 meter (22.96 feet) minimum distance.
