    Has anyone made one before? I plan on making mine hopefully. Just wondering maybe what some of your guys' ideas were. I was thinking of making a smaller one with some welded steel and a old tire curtain in back to slow down the bullet. This will just be for .22s, really nothing bigger. The lanes at the gun range here is $14 a lane and $7 each extra shooter. :greddy:

    I've made .22 bullet traps out of a carboard box with scrap carpeting and magazines or phonebooks in it, works great.

    it's easy to trap the bullets (for .22lr) .. but you still have to worry about ventilation and lead deposits

    At my indoor range, we just shoot at about a foot of airplane tires, behind them is a steel plate. They replace the tires every year or so. as for the outdoor range, we just shoot into a hill. Works fine for me, and doesn't cost much at all.
