Here is a picture of my backstop when I was in Tulsa. I could stay inside and shoot through the window. Simple to put up and take down. I used 2 shepherd hooks and put a piece of 3/4 in. steel conduit across them. The stop is golf ball netting and the basket catches the ammo when it falls.

Thanks duke,it started as a wire from a suitcase I just bent it like halfway then added two pillow cases( the wife will have a fit lol) split them down the sides leaving a bag kinda at the bottom then I reinforced it by putting a tee shirt behind it( my wife's tee shirt,now she'll have another fit lol) and that was it.

That's too funny and too cool of an idea to leave alone. I'm going to get a yard of fabric and try to copy your invention to take with me on trips. I'll post a pic when I'm done.
I'll see if I can get a little video of it in action today,my wife is out at work so! maybe I get to shoot at some of her earrings for targets


Lol I'm so heading for big trouble...I know it

I am definitely making one of these. This to me seems like the perfect catch box. What do you think?

Nice 'n' simple!

This man's got a soft touch to approaching the goals. Works perfectly, I'm sure.

These are mine: a catch-box portable made of cardboard and a type of target with an old ravel-bag with a system to gather ammos.
Now there's another thinking man!

Very good!

Just make sure you dump out the ammo before the TSA inspection. : )

Simple cardboard box'll do it! Especially with a mattress as a backup.

Nice going.
