New bullet traps

Log in to see fewer ads
I'm blessed to live in the county and can shoot out to 100 yards in my back yard and out to 500 behind my shop. Where I shoot behind my house I'm shooting into a hill side. Having said that I wanted a positive back stop so I built a couple bullet traps. I built one very similar to these last fall to shoot my airguns indoors in the winter. It's only 14 gauge and a little light for .22 rimfire. These are built out of 11 gauge sheet metal, it's almost 1/8" and should be fine for their intended purpose. Also on these I put the door to empty them on the bottom. All I have to do is place a bucket under the pipe and swing the door open and let gravity do it's thing.
