Building cover in the home
2x4 studs are app the width of a brick. frame a12''x12'' box . 1/8''
plate on one side. bricks in the middle. 1/8'' plate on the other.
3/8'' sheetrock for outer walls. Paint. Carry to range. Shoot. See
the effects. If you like results,do your wall or walls the same way
at home. If not,then add another 1/8'' layer and shoot again.
that way you know exactly how thick you need to be to stop your
bullets. Using multiple layers of thin metal will allow you to more
easily build your wall without breaking your back and do it alone
if you have the skills.
Bullet Penetration In Sand
The test done did not take into account multple layers of sheetrock.
This might be of interest to anyone planning on using sand for a backstop. We used these figures to set up a small range and with a four foot berm we have never had any problems.
