Thought i would share my cheap pellet traps and dollar store targets.Dollar stores are great for targets.You can get cards,balloons,pokerchips and so much more.
The crates have an old pair of jeans hanging in the back with a rod through it to hang targets.

Just out of curiosity, how much energy can a pair of jeans hold back?

Mine can handle my farts so I'd say quite a lot.

It should safely contains pellets of air pistols in the range of 325 to 400 fps as long as the curtains of jean are floppy and not strechted. I normally used 3 loose curtains with a spacing of 1 inch in between. After a while the first layer get a bit damaged and can be changed.

For rifle closer to 500 fps, I use the putty.

I love that it all closes into the rubbermade looking garbage can(?) shed.
I am plannig my semi permanent outdoor range and that is a great approach.
And it acts as an over all back stop top and side as well....for the guest shooters...not me....honest.....ok sometimes

Yes it's a bin for garbage cans.I still need to add more material in the back ,but it works great.Keeps everything dry too.
The jeans in the target are hung from the top.It's a full pair of jeans folded 3 times.So six layers of denim hanging loosely.There is definately nothing under 500 fps thats going through that.

Nice setup, if I had a backyard I'd build something like that, I do my shooting away from home so my targets need to be portable

I have several different pellet traps and some spinner targets and all are portable.I like these type of traps because they give you so many target options.They are great if you have kids.
