Build an Airsoft gun target and BB catch to save your walls from destruction and to improve your accuracy.

Steps

Step #1:

First, download PDF template and cut your two side pieces and top and bottom pieces out of 5/8" plywood. Glue together.

Step #2:

  • After gluing, nail or screw the joints (I used a bradnailer). Next, cut out your back pieces.
  • On one of your back pieces, cut a 20-degree angle on one edge so it will fit well with the other back piece.

Step #3:

Next, cut out the two pieces for the front BB catch. Cut one piece at a 45-degree angle, glue and bradnail (or screw) together and install into the box.

Next, sand all the pieces and paint it whatever color you like. I used paint & laminate left over from my wife's laundry room cabinets. Of course, laminate is optional; it will still work without it. I just have to get rid of this leftover garbage.

When the paint was dry, I applied contact cement on the inside of the target box and back side of the laminate, let dry for 10 minutes and applied the laminate.

Then, I found a nice handle at Habitat for Humanity for only $0.25 (support the homeless). Mark center and apply the handle.

I also found some very cheap clips at a dollar store. I pre-drilled the holes at 8 1/2" apart, so I can use not only big targets, but also the smaller ones I could print out. Have fun with it, or give it away as a gift. Happy shooting!

    It is May 16 and still no PDF. These things are really monitored well.

    Maybe I should leave some spam links.
