How to make a target that will catch your BBs even at moderately high velocities. Please comment to tell me up to what FPS it will stop, I dont have enough guns to completely figure that out. I felt the urge to label everything in this instructable :). Most tape in this in this instructable can be replaced with nails if you want it to be.

Step 1: Materials
You will need-
1. Safety Glasses
2. A USPS tray or another corrugated plastic box
3. A cardboard box that is a little bit smaller or bigger than your corrugated plastic box
4. Tape or some nails and a hammer
6. Optional- more cardboard
Step 2: Insert the Box Into the Tray
Take the box and insert it top down into the tray as shown, leaving one flap outside the box.
Step 3: Securing the Box and Tray
Tape down the flap, then tape around the rest of the box and seal it as shown.
Step 4: Add the Targets
Tape or nail on some cheap targets.
Step 5: Open Fire
Aim and shoot, or in my case, shoot while trying to use a camera and almost break a pane of glass.
Step 6: Recover BBs
After you have fired a satisfying amount of ammunition into the target, untape the flap, turn the target upside-down, then tilt it so the majority of the BBs come rolling down the flap where you can catch them and reuse them!
