Targets look really good but what do you shoot at? Reminds me of bow shoots where some guys would fire an arrow then use that as a target for three more arrows for making sure bow was sighted in. I never wanted to ruin my arrows. LOL

That is what stopped me from shooting compound unlimited. Too hard on arrows. 3-spots for scoring, but there was always a time when shooting more than one arrow at a bull - all too often, it was a Robin Hood.

Got it all finished and pretty happy with it for costing less that $20 complete as seen here. Steel lined inside with metal from old furnace doors which are free. Got some 3/8ths sticker dots coming if Amazon ever decides to ship them. Been waiting for 2 weeks now. CHEERS!

Just stopped at Dollarama on way home and bought some 1/4 inch dots. Cancelled Amazon that Prime has changed the delivery date twice now. CHEERS!

Pretty happy with the spoon spinner/knockdown shelf target. May build another one out of plywood this time to leave outdoors. Run 1/4 inch dots from the dollar store and they work pretty well. Longer distances outdoors I can use the 1/2 inch dots. Got a second set of Air Venturi animals and six more spoons as originally I was going to put two levels of spoons. Take spoons out and I can add a second shelf but I think I will just build a second the same only better wood this time. CHEERS!

Pellet hitting the metal will make very big noise... And say the lead pellet hitting the hard surface will make more lead duct that is very harmful...

So finally we will have to fill it with duct seal too?

I think it might be a bit small for duct seal. the back has a slant to it. so when the pellets do hit they will drop to the bottom. so far I only tried it with my beretta elite bb gun. I cut cereal box cardboard the same size as the target . I put that behind the target. it helps a bit with ricochets and not as loud.

I bought two of them. They work great. I bought 5 spot paper targets which I glue to light cardboard such as cereal, Pizza and beer can cases. From my favorite Ebay seller (nikkonos) I bought 250 single pistol target for $30 for 250 to the door. Store is closed till August 13th. They are super traps as very few pellets fly out of the trap. Targets are 17cm x17cm. Shoot mine just with the bare metal. :wink:

can,t beat the price on these. a little while back I bought a gamo bone collector pellet trap from amazon. I paid about $19.00 bucks for it . I could have got 2 of these for that.

Now have six of these Remington Pellet Catchers. Using two indoors and four more in unopen boxes. For $7.99 they cant be beat. I have two good sources of 17X17cm targets for these traps. Figure I can set them up outside at different distances if I ever shoot outside with my airguns. Don't shoot very often anymore as I got back into 3D archery. But becoming not so nice weather so will likely start shooting pellets again. Back into hockey season again which eats up some hours each week as well. I am a human target. :lol: CHEERS!
