I do not understand why this is funny. It is a paper target on a cardboard mount in an indoor range. "Target blowback"? as a newer shooter, I do not know what happened to you. I suppose that bits of a target were "blown back" while being struck and struck you in the face. I can see this happening outside with a strong breeze, but not indoors with exhaust fans sucking the air out of the room.
