Things I liked: How strong it is and design
Things I would have changed: The clip i would make it stronger
What others should know: If you plan on carrying it be aware that its heavy
Things I liked: I bought this trap to replace a cheap sheet metal pellet trap, it wasn't holding up well to .22 pellets around 700 fps. This trap is far thicker than the cheap ones they sell everywhere, and hasn't deformed at all after thousands of .22 and .177 pellets and plenty of .22lr bullets as well. It took a little work but this is a good trap for indoors or out if you put a little work into it.
Things I would have changed: The trap came with huge gaps around the sides, I had to weld the sides closed with a MIG welder before I could shoot indoors with it. Now it's one big hunk of steel and it gives a nice low "clunk" sound when the pellet hits. Also, I drilled two holes in each sides and attached some scrap 2X2 on the sides and bottom. I staple a piece of cardboard over the mouth of the trap and duct tape all the edges to keep lead fragments in the trap. It took me a couple hours to get it welded and sealed and ready to shoot, but it's so worth it if you do. Mine lives in the cabinet at the end of my hallway and only leaves to be emptied! So when if my boyfriend isn't home I just open the cabinet, get a fresh paper target and benchrest it off my couch like a cowgirl!! I love my indoor range!
What others should know: I wouldn't suggest you get this unless you know how to weld or know someone who does. I used a 100 amp MIG welder and it's holding up just fine. But I did the outside and the inside on the higher-impact areas of the trap where it needed reenforcement. If you don't weld it up good it's going to make a mess, just warning you!! Also anything over 600 tends to fragment so it's best to shoot lower velocity guns indoors. Lastly you should clean up and vacuum the area and under the trap. But it's a great trap, I have no doubt this will probably last me until I'm an old lady!! I'd buy again!
Things I liked: One of the things I liked was the quality of the pellet tray, I have not used it as of yet but it appears that no pellet dust will escape and if some does it is only a minor fix with some sort of sealant like Silicone or something similar.
Things I would have changed: What I would change is the distance that comes with the trap, the manufacture claims one distance and Pyramyd Air claims another distance for .22 caliber and .17 caliber rim fire. Pyramyd Air makes the claim at a close distance, yet the manufacture claims the distance for a .22 should be no less than 25 yards and for .17 caliber no less than 100 yds. Some should get their act togethers because I planned on shouting my Marauder at 10 yds and this is a .22 coming out at 1000 FPS/
What others should know: The price for this trap is something that I truly like and it is reasonably priced. I hope I will not regret buying this trap because of the conflicting distances stated between the manufacture and Pyramyd Air. The only reason I gave it a four star is because I have not used this trap and want to see if it dents at the yardage of a closer range than the manufacture states.

what caliber of airgun will it stop?
It's made for rimfires - so realistically, anything below 100-150 FPE should be fine.
Can you use lead and/or steel BB's with this?
Lead ammo would be fine. Steel BBs will ricochet
Can I use the Dust Devil tangible bb's on this trap?
