Watch out for ricochets!

As a newbie shooter, anything solid which might cause a ricochet immediately takes me back to the safety fundamentals (and one of the more important, in my mind). In a real incident, if you shoot a round and it penetrates or you miss, where will it end up? If you shoot solid, hard targets at a practice site and you have a ricochet, all bets are off. You will have no idea where the fragments might end up.
