Does anyone own one of these traps? Was thinking it would be neat to shoot the targets and they automatically reset when shooting the middle target

I've had one for many years, and it's proven to be pretty -wait for it- bulletproof.
Really- a solid, reliable design. I put stick-on day glo target spots on each target, to make them easier to see in low light.

Size wise it's okay?

I wonder if I can put some duct seal at the back to prevent pellet splatter - - for the shots that are missed from the target.

Do you find any of the pellets ricochet back?

I remember you want something quieter, right? But the 'ding ding' sounds when your pellet hitting the metal looks would be loud...

Decent trap, worked well enough until I used a mid powered .22 and bent the spoons past where I could fix them. I’d say definitely keep it under 500 FPS.
