There's always that worry when shooting into concrete cause they can bounce off it. The number one thing is that she's comfortable with it......JMHO,

If shooting toward a hard surface like concrete, pretty darned good.

You don't want to shooting anything at a hard surface. The chances are very good that it will ricochet. I'd be surprised if it didn't.
