    What if the ball went through Bob but the amount of force it has around it and in front of it could have blown a hole into him on the other side. My theory is kinda like a bullet because if you have the right amount of grain in your bullet, you could literally be just a few inches off of your target's shoulder but still blow its shoulder off. Especially on a day with more humidity. Hopefully this makes since but it was just a theory of what actually happened to Bob on the first shot.

    I’m not sure you can catch it with a direct shot right at the glove. I’d be willing to bet that if you shot the ball straight up you could catch it coming back down. The ball would be slowed but you could catch it. I wonder how high it would go.

    The brakes on the front are too low. To adjust you should undo the bolts and get them centred in the rim. Pull the brakes tight and tighten until you almost move the pad. Let go of the brakes and push up on the right side of the pad whilst tightening.
