    About 60 yards of concrete at 80-90 a yard just short of 5,000 plus the hole.

    I have a neighbor who has done this outside using Railroad Ties, 3 deep and a sheet of Diamond plate in the back and a sheet of plywood on the front. Cheap and easy to replace, he is plugging hands guns with .50 cal being the largest. While he has seen marks in the diamond plate, there are yet to be any solid hits. Total loss of 35 inches.

    He then took three handrails, parrallel to one another and 3 feet apart. On these he placed sliding benches. Then made measurements from the facing and placed them on the rails so he could place the bench on the mark.

    Last thing he did was, to the right of the rails, place some netting to catch brass. He then just shakes it down to a small trash bucket.

    His outlay was ~$900 and it worked beautifully. He later invested $2200 in walls and Acoustic tile, just to minimize questions from neighbors who may be walking by

    Could you imagine explaining to your insurance agent your putting a shooting range in your new basement. The look on his/her face would be priceless! And then the look on your face when he/she tells you your new insurance rates would also be priceless! lol

    Let's say you have your heart set for an underground facility (I still think you are better of with something above-ground), I'd would have a trench dug deep and wide enough to bury 2 40' sea containers end to end with the doors removed. Cut a couple of holes on top for adding ventilation systems and cover the inside with sheet rock and plywood to absorb ricochets.

    I saw on one of the other forums where someone built a shooting range (outside) and used tires for sound baffling (basically shot into a row of them) and backstop material (along with railroad ties). May be a cheaper alternative.

    When I bought one for a shed about 5 years ago, it was $1300. I had the same idea, stacking 2 or 3 in a row for an underground range. One of these days when I can afford it, I plan to do it. I figure it could double as a storm shelter, and storage for some cars.

    Regards,
    Michael
