Default shooting trap designs

my grandfather in law is a retired master welder and will soon be making custom shooting traps for a little side project to pass the days. only problem is he doesnt really know too much about how to make em and im having trouble finding any diagrams or such online. does anyone know of a place that i can find a diagram or even a picture of a pistol or rifle trap so i can give him an idea to go off of? also if anyone in the central alabama (montgomery) area would like one just let me know and ill kick it by him to see how much and how long it will take to build.

Not sure what you mean by trap.
But see if these will help.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!
