That is a CLEARING trap. Used when clearing a weapon, and has packs inside that you replace when you have the AWCRAP moment. Others - like the snail- are intended to be shot repeatedly.

Ah ok. That's definetly good to know. If we are going to invest the money I intend to test used guns before purchase and obviously it will be used for the occasional loaded bp gun that comes in and after trigger jobs etc. $1500 just seems like so much money.

I have a friend hew gave some big tractor tires I filled thim with dirt and packed the dirt in tite.
And stacked another on top
And repeated that till I got it nice
And tall and that stops a lot of bullets.

Basically everything short of .50
Black powder up to probably .338
Size is a factor the vault is probably 12 x 16
