    I think the better question is; how many toddlers can a .22lr go through from 30 feet away?

    why don't you find out?

    After all it depends if it is treated or not, how it is treated if you hit a knot ect.

    Because, unfortunately, society frowns upon that kind of thing.

    And WTF does how they're treated have to do with anything? If they're squishy, they're squishy. I don't think daddy neglecting them, or not hugging them enough them would have anything to do with it.

    Wow, it's like moisture content ups density or something? Next thing you'll be saying is craziness like an oak 2x4 is denser and tougher than a pine 2x4...

    Post pics! I can't imagine this is legal. Do you have proper ventilation and all?

    You can buy .22 bullet traps for pretty cheap.

    Cheap still sounds more expensive than free.

    just use phonebooks

    A CCI Minimag out of my Ruger Mk3 only goes through like 2 copies of the white pages. I live in a very large city though. You might need 3 or 4.

    Touche. A box of sand would probably work well too. Well, until you start poking holes in the box.

    With my rifle that'd be fine...but I dont trust the accuracy of this thing to hit a phonebook. Although It was shooting pretty accurately at the range at 25 yards...minus the jams.

    This was the plan until I realized I'd make a huge mess.

    Perhaps I will run a test with the scoped rifle and phone books before I start constructing another wall out of 2x4's. I'll have my dad outside seeing how much noise it makes. Worse comes to worse it'll be awesome shooting CB Shorts when I'm bored.

    I'm sure its fine accuracy wise, I just dont want to risk it. The fucking thing jams every 2-3 rounds. I dont think its pushing the bolt carrier or whatever all the way back.
