So i have two distances i shoot from.15 feet and 10 meters.I had my traps sitting on a plastic tote and i would have to rotate it 90 degrees in order to switch between the two distances.Sliding the tote over was pretty sketchy because all the traps would be wobbling.
So i made a new trap and a dolly with locking wheels and added a strap to hold it all securely.Now i can wheel it around anywhere.Since it worked so well i celebrated by going to a new dollar store and stocking it up.Here is the results.

what is that blue material you are using behind you targets, is it cut outs of jeans, i thought of trying that as a permanent back stop, kinda of in layers, i'm already successfully using it to stop shots from my PAL ruger airhawk, and that's shooting at 900ish fps

Yes it's all denim.Each one is has a pair of jeans folded 3 times,so 6 layers.All my guns are sub 500 and no pellet has gone through yet.
The white thing is some kind of furry mat that works well.I used it because i ran out of denim but i got a new supply today and can change it.

So the wife will be gone for a week soon so i went to the dollar store and stocked up,Here is some of my haul.
We have been making little paper cap bombs.I stick them on my spinners and some of our targets.I also cut pieces of sidewalk chalk and drill a hole in the center and put the caps in there too.Makes a nice flash and bang when you hit the target.

Y'know you're giving me an idea.
If I could hang a target from my clothesline I could easily attach my targets, roll them out, firs away and roll them in to check my shooting.
Just like they do at the pistol ranges.
