Why are you making baffles out of kittens?

EVERY TIME I go there I see at least one baffle hit. It makes me sad...


Full auto Mini-14 guy, and I'm sure there's only one of you... You're a terrible, awful, horrendous shot, just thought you should know.

Guys scoping in rifles, draw an imaginary line from your muzzle to the target, and continue that imaginary line. Hitting the roof? Don't do that please.

Now, can someone answer this for me? What happens to a bullet that is shot too low? does it break up and end up in the backstop?

ive been curious of this too. ive noticed that if you are shooting a man size target at fairly close distance (less than 7yd) and aiming center mass the bullet should hit the ground before the backstop.

Last weekend I witnessed someone blast the ceiling tiles with a 12 gauge slug. It rained tile dust and fragments for quite a while.

Floor is less of an issue. As long as it is past halfway it should find the trap.

Please change the title. That makes me want to unload on the baffles.

I know how you feel, though. I think that a combination of poor trigger discipline and inexperience makes this happen.

Every time I look at the baffles, I just shake my head.

I was in my lane loading a mag as the person to my right did a mag dump with a pistol and I guess he hit my cable and my whole system came falling down.

I'll miss the NRA 25yd pistol slow fire target from time to time. All it takes is a slight jerk.
