Found this plastic tube that my embassy pen from county comm came in. Could be nice for some hikes as you can still unscrew the cap and still carry stuff in it even ammo

    Yup I really like this. If I attempt another it would be something similar, perhaps in wood if its not too difficult...

    interesting design. Does it deflect the ammo downwards then bc of the angle then or do you still get shots that bounce back out?

    sometimes they bounce out because the cans that i shoot fall and then it is a little bit unpractical but i think its the size that matters(mine isn't deep enough so the cans get stuck, if you make it deeper the problem will be solved i think)

    <span class="postbody"><br><br>hey, know your problem, you can attach a pice of textile in the opening so that it will slow down the projectile like this <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xAeHSCKgGVM&feature=youtube_gdata_player" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xAeHSCKgGVM&feature=youtube_gdata_player</a> (it is´nt my video)</span>

    Enlarge the opening, so nothing gets stucked.<br><br>I would also put a towel behind the targets, otherwise the wood looks very nasty after a few shots.
