Never been to a range that didn't have multiple holes in inappropriate places. Makes you think. I've been hit by ricochets countless times. The seven yard falling plate stage in Bianchi Cup shooting... Never been seriously injured by it, though. One of our indoor ranges has a terrible air handling system. It actually pulls smoke back towards the shooter. Nothing like the sweet tingle of aerosolized lead in your sinuses. The same range allows rifles of up to .338 Lapua. There just isn't anything practical you can do to protect yourself from that level of sound pressure. Maybe a motorcycle helmet or something. So yeah, indoor ranges are not ideal. We have an outdoor range about 30 minutes away, where each shooter gets his own 5x25 yard lane, separated from the other lanes by 10 foot tall dirt berms. It's essentially ideal, but you'd better get there early in the day, and getting a lane on a weekend is like hitting the lottery!
