Easy pellet trap for Pumpers
« on: February 20, 2021, 04:40:30 PM »
I have been using a 1/2 gallon milk carton filled with dry cat litter for indoor shooting with my Daisy 880.  The advantages are:
  • compactness
  • low cost
  • Durability.  Just shake to distribute pellets and tape up any holes
  • With 10 pumps from my 880, the pellet did not pass through (I usually shoot 2-3 pumps)
  • Easy to set up
Of course, you can use a bigger box if you cannot reliably hit a half gallon milk carton.  You can also substitute sand, rice, and other loose materials if you don't have cat litter.  I always have a plywood backstop to avoid punching holes in the wall. 

Have fun!
