Bullets over ILM

Yes, Episode 1 sucked, but yeesh. These guys were only responsible for the visual effects: Stray bullets bounce off ILM employee. Sounds like some yahoos from the Presidio Park Police were firing into the air over at the San Quentin shooting ranges.

Find the fool that designed the shooting range! Of course, when the range was probably first put into use, there may not have been any civilization out there. It's still an incredible story, glad no-one was hurt.

It's got to be range use, 'cause there's a 200 foot high hill between the range and Kerner boulevard. I don't care if you're bouncing hardened steel balls off of titanium, there's no way a ricochet is going to maintain enough energy to get that distance.

Of course it's also possible that it was coming from some more local source.
