new shooter

In the early morning hours of December 9, 2007, 24-year-old Matthew J. Murray opened fire at the Youth With A Mission training center in Arvada, Colorado, with a pistol, killing two and wounding two others before escaping. Later that afternoon, he attacked the New Life Church in Colorado Springs, Colorado, with a number of firearms, killing two more people and injuring three before being shot by Jeanne Assam, a member of the church's safety team, who had been carrying a licensed firearm. Murray subsequently died from a gunshot to the head, which was inflicted either by himself or by Assam.

    How safe is gravel as a backstop?

    Hello! I'm a newer shooter and just got my first pistol. Looking to do some outdoor shooting here soon. I was wondering how safe it is to shoot a target that's on/in front of gravel? Anyone have experiences with ricochets when hitting gravel? Thanks!
