    That catchbox is nice, great idea to have a bucket there to recieve your ammo.<br>The Fritzkater is a beautyful cat.

    haha I did some shooting today and I think building that thing was really worth it.<br>The Fritzkater is a beautiful cat indeed. he has never hurt anybody, even not little kids hugging him and carrying him upside down ^^

    After loosing way too many 9mm steel balls I built a catch box just like yours. Great design thanks for sharing! <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_smile.gif" alt="Smile" longdesc="2">

    I'd love to make one like that, I will as soon as I get some more ply or particle board to do it with. What iv always done is used a rubbermaid bin or something like that with some towels hanging down. I just made a new one the other day and it has a trough system like the one in the video. I like the bins because I can just hang it on the side of my shed and. Take it down whenever I'm done!

    Mines a rubbermaid bin with 2 towels folded up and screwd through the top of the box, through the towels and into a strip of wood, I have 2 layers of this. Make this new one 3 days ago and the towels are already starting to fall apart! Also has an extraction system but it's not that great. i just hang the box on my shed. But I hope to make a nice wood box with a stand and a better extraction system.
