    Held up today so made something I've been meaning to do for ages, see if you can guess what it is, I suspect that most will know though.

    First some bits of stainless sheet

    Then weld em up and make it look a bit decent

    Then a short piece of stainless box section cut out the front and cap the end with a bit of perf.

    There is also a keyhole slot.

    Join them up, not much weld needed just a couple of short runs each side will be enough

    Its not finished yet, just one small detail to do tomorrow.

    Your gonna bolt it to the front door.
    The key hole is there obviously to lock and unlock the door through and the chute is there for the paper boy to pop your news paper in because the little git keeps leaving it sticking out your letter box and it gets wet. :laughing:
    How did you guys not spot that. :laughing:

    No no you lot have got it all wrong. It's a fog horn to alert the postman/courier that you are actually in after he used his padded gloves to stroke the door rather than pushing the door bell button.

    If the keyhole was a bit lower you could use it as a guide when you get home after a good night on the pop :laughing:

    My money is on a pellet catcher but as yet its lacking the frame that secures a std target

    Isn't it a bit 'heavy duty' for that? :dontknow:

    Yep pellet catcher,
    Target holding channels tacked on and its finished, I know you can buy one for next to nothing on ebay but not in stainless, I've made it so that it can either hang or will stand level on a shelf so i can use it in the workshop or at home in the garage, it works really well, no rebounds at all so far, hitting that box section at the back takes out the energy and they just drop in the collector

    What are you using at it?
    Pistol, .22 or .177, pcp or springer?

    Really quite tempted in buying another rifle as sold my old springer a while a go.
    Would love a little pistol for in garage plonking also.

    I'm using this little beaut,
    .177 co2 powered, packs quite a punch, loads and fires just like the real thing, great fun to use.
    I sold my rifles years ago, used to shoot regularly for a local club but gave it up when kids turned up, my wife hates guns so it was anything for a quiet life at the time.

    Yes off ticket, just need to provide ID and buy it face to face at a registered firearms dealer, this is a Umarex, nothing like the quality of a Brocock but still pretty good, I'm going to treat myself to the colt python 357 magnum next, I like revolvers :)

    Very nice. How/what/where? pellet and CO2.

    I’ve had a SKIF for the last 30yrs, 28 shot mag is very handy. Very accurate as well. Doesnt get used much, as can be seen by the cost of the pellets
