Gar­den surf­ing

Air Gunner - - Your Letters -

When it comes to back- gar­den shoot­ing my take on safety is sim­ple; a large soap-pow­der box, Surf is my favourite, filled with a week’s sup­ply of the Daily Mir­ror, a pa­per tar­get stuck on and hey presto. At 20 yards the pel­lets go in and don’t come out, and when the box starts get­ting tatty, just en­cour­age ‘her in­doors’ to do some ex­tra wash­ing. GERRY

Hello Gerry I use some­thing sim­i­lar be­hind my chrono­graph. It’s a card­board box stuffed with all the junk news­pa­pers that come through my let­ter­box. It traps the pel­lets nicely and I get no re­bounds or splashes of lead, as I have in the past from metal pel­let traps. This set up is free, easy to re­place and so far, is the best so­lu­tion I’ve found for my needs. I won’t be telling my wife about get­ting on with the wash­ing though. Ed.

Is this the ul­ti­mate gar­den back stop?
