Interesting comment on the range where the skeet fall zone was the cages for the other range reminded me of a personal incident.
Back in mid 70’s I was dove hunting with a friend. I was using 16 ga he had 12 ga both with #8 shot. We had placed ourselves across from each other with about 75 yards pf freshly mowed field between us. We plotted safe shooting zones. During the hunt he started tracking a bird and in his focus didn’t realize he didn’t shoot until the bird was inline with me. I only knew when I had a shower of #8 shot raining down through the tree above me. (yes the bird was well above our line of site to each other so no chance of direct shot). I repaid in kind waiting for my bird to be above his location as a reminder to pay attention to shooting zones as my shot rained down through tree he was under.
Also as an x-ray tech in a major trauma center. I have taken x-rays showing bird shot 2″ penetration no vital organs hit. As well as an instance where .22 40 gr out of a 22 LR pistol where pt was shot in shoulder and we found the bullet in the knee.
