My elder brother bought his around one night to play with in the garden, the middle son had his nice red car parked down the driveway ( the make with the prancing horse badge) I heard the loud ping as my brother missed the wide open space he was aiming at and hit the door of the car, never did say how the dent got there, but I did fix it for no charge.
No - I gave up as a 12 year old when I went to the local indoor range and got fed up of missing the target with the heavy Walther I was given so I blasted ten shades of **** out of a paper target that was lying nearby. Turned out that the target was some special competition one belonging to The Big Cheese.
There was a kid at school who had one of those gat guns or whatever they were called. He bought some darts for it, instead of conventional air gun pellets, and accidentally fired one of the darts into the end of his brothers big toe.

Used to do pistol shooting, I was passable club standard late teens and early 20s but moved and never joined a new club. Every now and again have a google for a new target pistol but haven't succumbed again yet.
Used to be a pretty good shot when I was a lad, I was in the cadets and fired all sorts of weapons, also helped my old man is the best shot I have ever seen and he taught me to shoot. When my lad was in the scouts they held a dads and lads weekend every year, we always won the shooting competition.
