Hi, I am Dale Ocken, the inventor of the Acreage Bullet Catch. The old saying goes "necessity is the mother of invention" and that is exactly how the Acreage Bullet Catch came to be. The Acreage Bullet Catch was born out of necessity on our acreage in Bennington, Nebraska. I got tired of moving heavy homemade backstops and even more tired of looking at all of the mess those backstops became after a day of shooting. After fruitlessly searching for an affordable, portable, durable hand gun range, I decided to take matters into my own hands and make one for myself. I hope that you enjoy it as much as I do and if you have any comments or questions please contact me at [email protected] and I will get back to you as soon as possible.
Also, now that this project is underway check back later for new updates to our product line. There's more to come!
Hundreds of man hours and tens of thousands of rounds were involved in the creation of the Acreage Bullet Catch so that it would be safe, portable, affordable, durable and environmentally friendly. It was developed using computer aided design in a state of the art manufacturing facility in Omaha, Nebraska, and has been tested extensively by shooting professionals. The patented steel strike-plate can handle the abuse of thousands and thousands of handgun rounds, yet replacement, if needed, is easy and economical. Every detail was considered so that this would be a range that would provide years of shooting enjoyment while also being environmentally friendly with no more lead damaging vegetation or going down range into an earth berm. Enjoy shooting at home, more often, and since the Acreage Bullet Catch safely stops the bullet and contains the debris, use it indoors or out.
