I took my Air pistol around to my pals' house.
They instantly enjoyed shooting every can from the recycling box.
(They acquired their own pistol within a week.)
We sit in the garden talking and taking it in turns to fire; it is relaxing and addictive.
But because I don't like spreading lead around, I elected to make a pellet catcher.
Various chunks of wood
Some old magazines and newspapers.
Some fabric or old clothing.
Any small metal lumps or brackets. (or just soda cans )
It took twenty minutes to make and looks like it took ten; and is odd shaped due to the wood available but it works fine.
Step 1: The outer part.
I made an inner part that would hold the wadding in place.
THe outer part is simply a board with some batons nailed on.
Step 2: The inner part.
Just an open box sized to fit snugly in the outer part.
The odd shaped sides are due to the odd assortment of wood available; it worked out well, though, because the large piece became an overhang to attach the targets.
Step 3: Fitting it together with the wadding.
I used an old t-shirt (When he went out , she gave me his t-shirt ).
Push the inner piece into the outer piece and it should hold together all nice and cosy.
