    I have finally finished my catch box. I may need to do some tweaking (not to be confused with twerking) here and there, but it seems to work pretty well. I think I need to add something to the bottom to keep ammo from rolling out following a hard hit.

    Looks good! If you make a hole in the "something to the bottom" and place a bucket under it your ammo will roll right into it :)

    If you were to fold the towel a little at the bottom you could make a pouch that should catch your ammo

    Thank you for the suggestions, I'm trying not to modify the box if I can help it. I will try to fold the towel at the bottom, or build some kind of L shaped device I can place at the bottom of the box.

    Looking good, although I now have a rather disturbing image of twerking and a pink scout!

    I don't know if you need the lid but if not you could cut the bottom 4 inches of so off then just clip it on the bottom.

    Scoob, I'm sorry for planting that disturbing image into your mind. ;)

    I may have to play around with how I set up the catch box, today I am using the lid in the back and a magazine or two to try to level out the box a little bit. Maybe if I put the box at more of an angle won't get so many steel shot bouncing out.

    I have found out that it is probably not the best idea to shoot my BB shooter at soda cans in my catch box, at least not at a relatively close distance. While some of the BBS cut right through the can, others come bouncing back. I may have to try it again when I can increase the shooting distance.

    That was my main goal with this one. As soon as my wife and I decide if we are going to move soon or now, I plan on making another catch box out of wood or PVC for the backyard.
