Just read your article on back- garden politics, and I wanted to share with you what I have been using for a backstop for many years now. I use those blue breeze blocks. Pellets will enter them and penetrate to 10/15mm and stop dead, even after many shots in the same area. I usually screw a piece of wood at the bottom edge and then staple my target cards to this. If you wish you can build a wall with five or six, to make a bigger backstop, no mortar required, and if you do hit a joint between blocks your pellets won’t travel through because of the weight of the block above. I have supplied a photo of the type I use, although it did come off the ‘net. Many thanks Phill. Please get Charlie Portlock out doing some more foraging. Thanks again. Dan Holme
