Things I liked:

Heavy metal, good buy for the money

Things I would have changed:

Misdesigned lover plate! The sendary plate is FLAT; it needs to be rounded. As it is I had to take off 2 stars because of the back-splash. When a pellet hits the secondary plate is splashes causing small "shotgun" like holes in the target from the back side. This also throws a LOT of lead dust into the air.

What others should know:

Be sure to add some kind of exhaust fan, as the back splash throws a klot of lead and lead dust out of th unit.

    Things I liked:

    Nice, heavy duty trap, wide opening for safely shooting into it. Well constructed, good mounting system for the target holding clip.

    Things I would have changed:

    Put a layer of some padding or other at the back of the trap, or make one available for purchase. That thing is WAY louder than the gun!

    What others should know:

    Consider your linen closet at the end of a decent length hallway for an indoor shooting range, if it can be done safely. Move one shelf worth of towels and sheets, and set the trap there. Insta-range, ta dah! {: - ) (Your wife may vary...)

    Things I liked:

    Heavy duty steel trap, nicely sized. No doubt would contain a standard velocity 22 rimfire outdoors but I use mine on a 20 foot basement range where I Limit 22/177 pellet velocity to CO2 or 3 pumps (no break barrel) and have experienced very little splash. Always use cardboard backers behind targets and wad cutters for clean holes.

    Things I would have changed:

    Nothing

    What others should know:

    Heavy and expensive (but worth the price) so add other items you have been wanting to meet free shipping and if there is a discount available it makes it really affordable so get off the fence youre missing a lot of fun.

    Things I liked:

    The size is perfect for what I need and portable enough to take with me anywhere. It is stout and seems very durable. The clip works well and holds a paper target just fine.

    Things I would have changed:

    I held off getting this trap because of the price for years but finally bit the bullet or "pellet" ha. Although I wish it was a bit cheaper it is a great trap!

    Things I liked:

    It is a sturdy stop. Does very good on stopping 25 cal pellets. It should last a few generations, not years.

    Things I would have changed:

    I wish there was a better way to put up your target. The clip works well, but once that clip is accidentally hit, you may as well purchase a new one at walmart. Even so, it is better to replace a 2 dollar item like a clip, than a whole target. Would be nice to have a way to hold your target on the edges so that they would not blow around in the wind for those who shoot outside.

    What others should know:

    What is really nice, is that the opening of this backstop is the exact size of a piece of typing paper. I used a computer and drew 5 bullseye's on a piece of typing paper and this allows me to make cheap targets. Make sure you use cardboard behind the paper so that backsplatter doesn't mess up your targets. One other thing.. .If shooting in wind, the target will sometimes catch the wind and fold up to where you can't shoot. Tape your target to the cardboard to stop this from happening in the wind.

    Things I would have changed:

    It needs to have some clay in the trap to help quiet it down and control lead splatter.

    I shoot it with my AEA Terminator 357 at 150+ FPE and my Texan 30 with 140 FPE and it takes it like a champ. After several hundred rounds and 3 years of hard use it has not one single dent. Fantastic trap!

    Things I liked:

    I like being able to shoot my pellet guns indoors, especially since I live in the Northeast and it's way too cold outside to be out there trying to aim while shivering. LOL I haven't experienced any splatter and it traps all the pellets I fire at it. I recommend this to anyone who wants an indoor range for their pellet guns. I may even try my luck with my High Standard Victor .22 and my .25 ACP at some point.

    Things I would have changed:

    I would change the angle of the back a bit to work better with BBs.

    What others should know:

    Stand back if you're going to use this for BB guns. Mine hasn't trapped a single BB yet. I shoot my CO2 BB pistol from 15 feet, and I have had BBs sail back past me. So far every BB I have fired at it are somewhere on my basement floor. I'm going to try placing shims under the back of the trap to see if I can find an angle that will work better for the BBs. They don't come out with enough force to be dangerous, for the most part, so I still recommend this to the indoor shooters out there.

    Things I liked:

    Heavy duty and great design. I used the styrofoam triangles that came with it to help stabilize my targets. Shot both a .22 caliber air pistol and .25 caliber air rifle and was very impressed with how the pellets were trapped and ended up in bits and pieces inside the trap

    Things I would have changed:

    Nothing...works great.

    What others should know:

    Get one for a solid trap making air gunning target shooting that much more fun and safe.

    Things I liked:

    I've had one of these for about 20 years now, and it's absolutely the best deal on the market. It's relatively big, extremely well built (it'll stop a .22LR), and the fact that it rings like a bell means the welds are good. I've emptied the lead dust out of mine after every several thousand shots, but if you leave the dust in that helps deaden the ringing.

    Things I would have changed:

    I wish there was a larger version. If there was a way to hang the target farther inside the opening, that would limit the amount of lead backsplash. If the back angle was more sloped, that would limit backsplash. If it came with some kind of sound-deadening compound or feature that would limit ringing.

    What others should know:

    I bought a 12x12" sheet of Dynamat (TM) at the local car audio shop not long after getting mine (again, this was 20 years ago). Slapping a big triangle of the stuff on each side of the trap made a big difference in deadening the ringing. These things really do "break in". After 20,000-30,000 rounds with air pistol and rifle mine doesn't spit lead back out much anymore and the weight of lead dust in the bottom completely deadens the ringing.

    A dusting of post-impact pellet material does end up on the ground in front of the trap.

    Things I liked:

    This thing is SOLID... made the delivery guy grunt! :) Seriously, this thing is built like a tank. The fit and finish are great. I like the included target hanger (a heavy sheet metal removable "slider" bracket and a good-sized binder clip). The target stays put in the breeze (flutters, sure, but doesn't slide sideways in the trap.)... some of the traps I was considering left it up to the user to come up with a way to secure the target. At about 20 pounds, it stays where you put it... no creeping trap here. I generally keep drilling the same nickel-sized area of the backplate, and the outside back shows no sign of bulge or even paint flaking. I'm definitely pleased with this trap, and would recommend it to anyone looking for a solid, durable piece of gear.

    Things I would have changed:

    Noisy; rings like a bell when impacted. Glued a piece of industrial carpeting to the outside back, which quieted it down considerably (tryin' to keep the neighbors happy, y'know.) You could glue a piece onto the inside and it would probably work even better, but would have to be replaced fairly often, I imagine. Of more concern, is this trap tends to spit lead fragments. Little tiny flakes on my shooting bench from fifteen feet (sighting in my Diana Bandit at bird-feeder range... darned squirrels & chipmunks), and larger fragments a couple of feet in front of the trap. Not a huge concern given the puny energy of the rebounding fragments, but definitely something to be aware of when using it. Eye protection definitely recomended ('course, we all always wear eye protection, don't we?) And the carpet-on-the-inside thing I mentioned above would probably mitigate the backsplash problem to some degree as well.

    What others should know:

    I been using only .22 and .25 pellets at around 1000 FPS or less, and it holds up really well to this. Not sure how it would stand up to the larger-bore, higher-powered stuff some of you guys like to shoot. As stated in the product description this is a lead-only trap... none of those brass-tipped hunting rounds allowed here. It would probably handle them okay in low-to-mid-powered guns (strictly my opinion based on how well-built this thing is, not backed up by anything factual), but I'm just as sure that it would be a lot tougher on the trap if fed a lot of this stuff. Plus, the way it spits fragments, I'd be concerned about the harder, non-lead tip possibly bouncing out and coming back at me.
