So, took a bunch of boy scouts to Shooter's Paradise in Oxnard last night. While there, apparently some knuckle heads decided to shoot a little faster than they are capable of controlling. A guy that appeared to be military (digital desert fatigues) took a ricochet to the forearm. Paramedics were called and a trip to the E.R. were in order. The up side was that the situation offered the perfect opportunity to give the scouts a quick brush up on first aid. Just glad it wasn't any of the kids that got hit. Oh, and the guy is fine, he was actually laughing a little bit inside waiting for the Paramedics. A great reminder to stay safe.

Good thing he was wearing headphones instead of plugs.

Do you know anything more about the situation? How does too fast equal a ricochet? Glad no eyes were lost.

Wonder what he was shooting and at what distance.

Don't know anything else. I think the shooter just couldn't keep his shots on paper and may have hit the target holder. I didn't see it happen, just saw after. It does seem kinda odd though.
