Launching in a few hours: last call for examples and additional comments!

A variant of Bizarre and Improbable Ballistics, where a bullet, arrow, stone, whatever, ricochets off several objects before finally hitting its target. Can be either accidental or just a sign of the shooter's skill.

A characteristic of the Precision-Guided Boomerang, though most other projectiles are also subject to this. Tangentially related to Pinball Gag. You may find one in a Trick Shot Puzzle.
