    I learned that one while blasting cans in a pond. The "vooo" sound. It was somewhat OK after going 6 feet up the bank. At the shoreline, bad idea.

    Oh no doubt.
    But it's still impressive and the you can always use a barrel intended for rapid fire.

    Call this proof of concept.

    I've never heard of such a thing happening? ... :dunno:

    Idk about bouncing back, they will skip and veer off.

    A .22 will bounce back off of a bulletproof windshield someone left in the woods, though. :oops:

    Before the county turned a nearby stretch of railroad destroyed during Agnes into a hike and bike trail, we used to target practice on 30's and 40's car wrecks dumped in the hollows ages ago. Nowadays, you can't have as much fun because the city jet setters need a place to show off their gym memberships in spandex. I agree, he's unlikely to take the risk otherwise.

    We used to skip .22 rounds off of ponds as a kid.
    As long as you know whats on the other side it's no big deal.

    This doesn't go into what you're asking but talks about water molecules getting hit by a round....

    Why does a bullet bounce off water?

    Yeah, that's fun. We also used to shoot snapping turtles for five bucks a shell in the neighbor's ponds with the Marlin.35 Rem.

    It is if somebody is less than a mile away picking mushrooms or walking their dog....NEVER spray rounds at standing water.

    We had a sandpit near our house that had a couple of cars dumped there. Those things looked like swiss cheese.
