So i was bored yesterday and decided to make another pellet trap and a gun rest.

Here is the trap made from an Exit sign that i can across though it would make the perfect size for a nice portable trap.
I removed the base and placed it at the bottom I cut a peace of wood for the back plate and placed a handle on it and thats about it I still have to go out and get me some more duct seal and a clip to hold the paper.

Here is a full sheet of paper to get an idea of its size.

So thanks to Bob for posting the paint roller gun rest idea i made one for myself a little deferent than his design i used a thick steel rod for the roller support and it works great.

Great idea with the "exit" sign, Ace! I might have to "borrow" that design...patent pending, of course...:mrgreen:

Good shootin', too! Might have to test my P17 against yours in the Sept target comp... :yawinkle:

Very nice Ace! Another good target holder you made! I need to get some B-4's or what ever the 10m air pistol one is and build a wood frame around that!

Very creative.
I have been keeping an eye out for stuff that i can use for pellet traps.I have a bunch of old milk crates laying around and it dawned on me today that they would make good traps.I made my first one today using an old pair of jeans in the back held in with wire and a threaded rod through it.I used the rod so i could hang stuff like cans,bottels,balloons in it.It works great so far.

Cool ideas, when shooting targets, testing for accuracy, is it best to have the target hanging free or with some sort of backing behind it
