Hi everyone,

I know some of you have been coming up with your unique ideas of making your own pellet traps. I made one today and thought will share it with you. I didn't use any Duct Seal or any other fancy material. I used a Blue recycle bin, shoved in a few cardboards and held them in place with duct tape, and finally put the thing on the wall.

I used my daughter's pad holder and cut it to accommodate target attachment. She will be mad at me when she comes back from school :D

Two paper clips at the bottom of the target hold the target straight. Total cost of the project was $6(price of the blue bin). I had rest of the things at home already.

It works great. Pellets get stuck in the cardboard which can be easily removed/replaced with a fresh one. It is not super quiet and you can hear the cardboard getting struck by pellets. But it does the job for me.

Check out the pictures and let me know what you think. Please suggest improvements if any. Thanks and have wonderful day.

Nice!
You can also buy rubber mulch, put it in a box at least 6" thick. Pack it in fairly tight.
No noise and the only thing that needs replaced from time to time is the box after you've put a thousand rounds through it if you don't feel like taping it up every couple of shoots.

Hmm..where can I get the rubber mulch from?

Thanks for the suggestion!
