Air pistol target holder
A very simple project with lots of screws

Hi everyone,
I want to share my first project with you, it is a project that I made several years ago.

it is a quick and easy project to make if you are in a hurry to start shooting :D

Actually shooting is not my passion and I am not a fanatic of this kind of thing, so you can easily improve it, I hope it can be an inspiration to someone.

This post is from the blog:

Looks like it performs its intended function as expected. That makes it a win. Nice job. :)

Very cool. I would have loved that when I was little and got my first red Ryder

Nicely done, even takes the “missed shots” well.

Fun project for safe target training.

I made a similar one for my son and his BB gun (many years ago) I hung a piece of heavy carpet in the back to stop the BBs. That way the BBs were easy to collect and reuse. He could also sit aluminum cans inside the box to shoot at when he tired of the targets.

I filled my target box with magazines. I strapped about 10-12” of them together as a pellet/BB trap. Grizzly catalogs would work too.

A great stopper is recycled tire mulch. My target is a cardboard box filled with tire mulch. It will stop a 1200 fps pellet at 10 yards.

Thank you all.
@GaryCN, thanks for showing me what you did.
@LittleBlackDuck, I don’t think my aiming improved much, but I have to say I had my girlfriend and my mum shot too. (ok, my mom shoots better than me actually: D)
