Iím wondering if anyone has experimented with using a 5 gallon bucket filled with sand as a clearing barrel of some sorts? Iíve just moved into a second floor apartment, and am sort of worried about aiming my weapons at the ground while I clear them. Previously it wasnít a problem because I was living in a buddies house who had a large back yard where I could clear them without a problem. The largest caliber Iíll be using will be .40 cal, and am wondering if anyone has tried it without having the bullet to through the bottom of the bucket. I would test it myself but I donít have a place where I can safely or legally discharge a weapon at this time.
