1. Put a filter - or better a couple on your lens - you never know whether you're going to get fragmentation of a ricochet.

2. Use a decent backstop. A thick phone book is ideal for most pistol calibre cartridges (up to about .38).

3. Use ear protection if you're using an air-gap flash or a cartridge weapon.

4. Be prepared to have lots of mess to clear up after destroying glass, china, eggs etc.

5. Lighting - lots of lighting. Remember a speedlight just barely has enough power to do what you need.
