Only problem there is that a bullet would likely go straight through the
walls of the plane. (Air pressure outside plane) < (Air pressure inside
plane) = decompression. Not a good thing to happen on a plane. That and the
risk of it hitting wiring, fuel lines, hydraulic lines and such on its way
out. Or, even worse, an engine.
Admittedly, that's a bit of a "worst case scenario"...
