    Hey Guys

    Don´t have much freetime anymore so it´s less building and more shooting for me lately.

    For that purpose i build a new Indoor-Catchbox which i´d like to share. Maybe someone wants to grab an Idea here and there.

    Front is 33cm high 45cm wide.
    Bottom is 37cm deep.


    I build i a 2nd bottom which is angled backwards a bit so the Steelballs will roll to the backside.
    The Backside itself is one laminated piece with the Back itself, a piece to support the 2nd bottom and another slope which leads the balls to the right side.
    The 2nd Bottom is also to cover to a storage compartement where i can store additional Targets.

    I made the roof come of easily to service the 4-5 layers of cloth.

    It also features several Hooks for hanging Targets.

    I mounted a Quick-Release-Plate from one of my Manfrotto Tripods to the Bottom so i can clamp it on one of my Spare Tripods and adjust it with a Ballhead very quickly.

    It also secures a very solid stand.

    You can also See a hole in one Corner of the Bottom. This is where the Slope ends and all the Balls come out.

    At the Moment i just have a Basket underneath, but since i´m lazy as f*** i will add a Quickrelease for a gardenhose and take one end of the 10m Hose to my Shooting position.

    Since the Tripod is always around 1-1.5m high the balls will travel back to me very quickly.

    I also tried out a faster Way to interchange Leons great Felt-Targets. I can not say how long those will last since they are made from wood, i think i´ll have to redo them in Aluminium soon.

    Have a nice Weekend and be safe :wave:

    I like the simple, effective "ball return" system you came up with. I'm adding that to my similar catch box. This post demonstrates the great value of the forum! Thanks!
    PS: those low front hit marks look familiar and gave me a little LOL.

    Very nice! I am also lazy and like the garden hose idea a lot!

    Now I'm looking at my camera tripod with a different view.
