Not sure if this is the best place to post this or not but....

I'm going to make a couple pellet traps for inside and out (still pondering design and very open to suggestions) but if anyone else wants one I'd be happy to put one together for cost (can be made at work out of scraps)

Pretty happy with these...they are on the heavy side though. Have been tested with 22 LR and a .45 airgun. It's a modified snail trap. Plate is 3/16" the tube is heavy auger tubing. Lead skips back and forth between the two angled plates, goes through the slot and then spins around the auger tube until it runs out of energy...then drops out the bottom onto a dollar store cookie sheet.

Holy fish sticks man I like that idea! I can make materials any thickness and I can have the parts cut on the plasma or do it by hand. The ideas I had in mind also included the ability to store flat for when not in use (pretty sure I can do that with the design you posted too) but I like your design for preventing things from coming back out!! Ever tried shooting steel balls at it ?

Have not shot any steel balls at it, but the end result would be exactly the same...would just drop out the bottom once the energy was exhausted.

It's basically an "angle of incidence equals angle of deflection" scenario and whatever goes in WILL bounce off the plates until it gets to the slot...and then it WILL spin "round 'n round" until it's done.

Is this your own design?

Largely. There are lots of pics online of bullet traps and snail traps. Looked a bunch over, drew up what I wanted, in the size I wanted and just made them.

Like the rest of your work that I have seen you did a good job on them!

That would be very easy to accomplish. If you have a vague idea of design or simply want someone else to come up with an idea that fits you requirements, just say the word and I'm sure it will happen.

I just use a 11x13x10" Box. Filled with rubber mulch. Then foam to keep the mulch in. When it springs a leak I just cover the holes with duct tape. Replace the foam when it gets too bad.

Biggest cost was the bag of rubber mulch ( 9$ at home depot ) being I had the scrap 1x10s and 1x2's.

Down side.
Its heavy. Esp with 1000s of pellets in it.

Im looking at a new place and I'll be building a hidden cabinet range in the basement.

Anything that works to get us shooting is awesome.
Indoors is great, not having your chickens eat lead is even better! !!:-)
