I'm after a little portable catch box I can take out camping with me. Does anyone know of any good commercial ones? All the ones I've found have terrible reviews. Or does any one have any good ideas to make one, ideally It could be folded up or collapsed, I was using a hanging blanket but It doesn't do a great job of catching ammo and I keep shooting through it !

Cheers guys

I haven't tried any of the commercial ones, but member Covert5 has a portable catchbox he made from a backpack that looks like it works really well. Extremely portable. Here's a post he shows a video of it in action. Best part is you might already own everything you need to make one :)

Those sling chucks look awesome, no doubt they'd be no good in my hands though

How about a 5 gallon bucket? cut out one side, string some paracord across to hang your backstop rags and 1 or 2 cords down from the lid to hang cans.
Beat me to it DSIL....actually building one of these now to keep at work for some lunchtime plinking

When I go camping I just hang an old towel on a branch or on the back of a lawn chair. I put another old towel on the ground underneath and a magnet to pick up ammo. I always have spring clamps and some paracord to hang targets.
When I go out and about I carry a 10" loop of paracord and an old cloth shower curtain...and make a tripod from deadfall... another scrap of cord to hand a target. A manget for pickup.

Very portable...there are better configurations for catching the ammo. make a shorter tripod and leave a tail to tuck under the base.

I use a cheap backpack with a clothes hanger (which pops) through the top to both keep the bag's shape and the hook to hang it from a branch. Then I drape 2 shirts from the hanger on the inside. To make sure the bearings don't bounce out of the bag, I stick a piece of flat cardboard box in front of the shirts inside the bag.

Been doing this for years and takes a fair few thousand shots before the shirts and bag gives in.
