I am considering purchasing a new home, in the basement there is a room approx. 25' x 10' 3/4 enclosed with about a 1.5' poured concrete wall. Anybody have any ideas as to cost? material?
It may be a really dumb idea, but what the hell, thought I'd ask.
Seems to me I ran across a similar thread in another forum. After figuring out all the materials to try and make the basement safe, in particular the flooring above you and the impact area, the person dropped the idea.
I'm not sure I would risk it, especially having family in the house. I lean toward ultra-conservative when it comes to firing a gun in my home for practice...I just can't bring myself to risk it. If I didn't have family, and it was just me, then I'd probably consider it. But I've got to believe that it's cost prohibitive.
What kind of materials would you use to make it safe? Steel plate? More concrete? Maybe check out your local range to get an idea of how it's constructed. That would be a good start.
