    http://www.millerwelds.com/resources...14-bullet-trap I made one from 3/8 plate on a 45. With a 3" pipe slit and the plate welded onto it. Works great for normal handgun loads. My .44 Mag or .45 won't dent it but my Ruger Blackhawk .30 carbine will...Bob

      Be careful of ventilation-you will generate lead in the air when you use it.

          Suppressor and subsonic ammo. This is why suppressors should be legal, to save your hearing and not annoy the neighbors.

            I've got four suppressors now, and am building a discreet indoor 40-yd range. My suppressed .45 is quieter than my suppressed .22's. Now that was impressive.

            To clarify ryanjones' comment; suppressors are legal in most states, but there is a $200 tax and a hassle of paperwork.

              Yup. I'm not really into them like some folks are, but I don't see any reason there is such a hassle to get one and use it legally. Just big brother trying to "protect" us I suppose.
