today i went to home depot and i found the duct seal, then i looked for something that would make a good pellet trap, wood was my first option but i kept looking so i found a electrical box? well i found the steel box on the electrical area so i looked at it, it felt strong enough so i bought, now that i put the duct seal inside i can say i made a good choice for a apartment silent pellet trap, in the box are 6 pounds of duct seal, i put some duct tape around so i could carry the box with a single hand, the electrical box came with a cover so i put three of the screws that came with it ( 8 screws came with the box) and i can easily put or remove the cover from the box, to hold the target i use a neodymium magnet from a hard drive, the magnet has a 4-5mm steel plate to protect it in case i hit it with a pellet, im really happy with the pellet trap, i think the size is more than enough for indoor shooting specially in an apartment, so here are the pictures oh yeah before i forget i spent around 37 dollars with taxes for everything

in this picture you can see how much a pellet penetrated the duct seal, the pellet was shot with a webley alectco .22 at 3 pumps around 475 fps according to my chrony

Here's my silent trap. It was noisy for the first few shots but now it's great!

Well, it is getting a little smelly...

Ha!
I bought and used the exact same electrical box, HD didn't have any duct sealant, so I used plumbers putty.
Instead of using magnets, I used thick elastic bands around the box to hold the paper targets on. Nice touch with the handle.

Very nice. I'm going to have to make one of these. My pellet trap is a cardboard box taped shut and stuffed with an old blanket.

Thanks to ideas on this forum, I made a pellet trap by making a wooden box, approximately 16"x11"x7"(deep) with duct seal packages as the back stop. I fasten a piece of cardboard using plastic drywall anchors into holes in the wood. I then tape my targets to the cardboard and replace both as needed. It works nicely.

I was going to make my pellet trap of wood too but when I went to buy the wood and duct seal I saw this box then I decide to get it so I saved sometime by no making the wood box, plus this is steel and is really compact that can hide it really easy.


Thanks a lot guys for the comments :drinkers:

Instead of a duct tape carrying handle I might see if I can find a sturdy metal handle like off a garage or barn door and bolt that on the top.

I'm going to do that too, but for the moment it worked and still works really good

Might be a case of "if it ain't broke don't fix it" with the duct tape handle then. :D
