Bullet trap for indoor shooting?

2 posts in this topic

Howdy All...

I'm planning to set up a small single shooting lane in my basement. It will be 10 yards deep, well ventilated, and sound insulated. Safety being #1, the walls, ceiling and floor of the lane will "direct" any stray rounds to the back wall. The "backstop" has been carefully thought out and tested to be able to stop a .45ACP semi wadcutter dead in it's tracks with ZERO splatter. Now I'm on to the actual bullet trap.

I have a full size design, capable of containing centerfire pistol rounds, up to .44mag, that I will be building when finances permit. However, in the mean time, I'd like to set this up using one of the commercially available pellet/.22 rimfire traps. I've seen a few that can be purchased through the chain stores and was wondering if these are a good choice...

Anyone out there with experience with these?

On a side note...

Gents... I may have found a "keeper"!!! Last week while at Gander, my GF asked me "which handgun should I start out with?" shocked.gif Wanting to "strike while the iron was hot", we put a pair of Ruger match grade .22's on layaway until our "permits to purchase" arrive. (Yeah. I know... Matching .22's... Ain't that cute... grin.gif)

      Got one over 40in on a small local lake like 3-4 yrs back , 2lb line...fishing panfish. Got a pic up in the St cloud reports somewhere. But biggest was just shy of 43 on Rainey River about 20 yrs ago

      If you make up it up this way at all I'll have the peg on a good bite somewhere. Sometimes traveling a little farther north makes ice fishing more enjoyable. Keep on posting, we have tons of well educated anglers that roam these forums!

      I'm slacking bud, I haven't done any of that yet lol. The excitement is here though, been talking to some co-workers lately about all things ice fishing. Soon enough guys!!

      My troubles are that even with the hyfax on the slides the munchkin take a little bit of a kick to get started.    My sled does not have studs and has carbides on the skis. So when I hook up to the house with the tow bar the track spins without breaking the house loose. It's like hooking it to a truck. Too much power on the sled side and no ability to transfer it to forward motion.    The 4-wheeler with chains has zero problems. Pulls it like it's not even there.

      I'd like to see this expanded to help revive our pike size and population.
