    Homemade pellet trap

    Had a free hour at work on Wednesday afternoon, so I knocked up a pellet trap for my air rifle out of spare stuff we had lying around ( which I'd been feeling guilty about neglecting )

    It takes an A4 page with standard holepunch spacing, all the smashed pellets end up in a paper cup shoved in the bottom.

    Works well, going to make heavier one for .22 rimfire. (6mm plate, bigger diameter heavy wall pipe, with a floor and roof, probably twice as deep to get the angle as steep as possible etc)

    Very cool! I love air rifles, I still get a real sense of fun like a little kid whenever I use one.

    Good skills.

    sorry, @Tommy, but I thought it was a trap for vermin using pellets as a lure...
