Had a little time to kill at work today and an open cnc machine so I drew up and cut out the parts to make a pellet trap. A few minutes in the welding room and a couple coats of paint and it was ready to go. It's probably heavy enough to handle .22 rimfire but I just want it for shooting my pellet gun in the basement. I tried it when I got home and it worked like a charm. :)

The main opening is 12 x 12 and the small hole in the back is 2 x 2.

Thanks. I just tip it forward and the pellets fall out the hole in the back.

I like that style of trap. Easy to clean and you don't need to worry about ricochets.
One of those diamond plate traps might be sturdy enough to handle your homemade pistol, Al. 8)

Not so sure about that, Rich. That beast might just drill holes in aluminum :D

Besides, It's Brendas gun :twisted:
