    Interesting but only 1 MAJOR problem ... there is no room to store any targets in the pit. What happens when you need to reload the machine ... yeah ya hits the button and the roof flips up like an old man on viagra but just where are ya getting the targets from? Are you having to schlep them from some other house every time to reload?

    Doesnt look like it would have room against any of the walls for a single case with all the hoses and control boxes and levers on the wall but then again it is an 80"x80" floor space ...

    Hey Lumper,

    You could stack the targets around the outside wall and hope that one of those old boys on Viagra don't let their load go to early!!!!! (release triggers)

    Yo, Otnot

    Thanks for the photo! Looks great! Would you mind disclosing the approximate cost of building that roof without the hydraulics? Many thanks.

    A traphouse just wouldn't be right without a good supply of hydraulic fluid in the floor. it seems like they all end up that way. lol JD
