Title: Granulate backstop assembly

Abstract: The present disclosure relates to a projectile trap for capturingprojectiles emitted along a line substantially parallel to an underlyingground/floor surface. The trap includes a support structure including aninclined support surface that is inclined relative to the line of theprojectiles. The inclined support surface includes a front edge positionedgenerally at the ground/floor surface, and a rear edge oriented at ahigher elevation than the front edge. The trap also includes a particulateflowable granular material supported by the support structure. At least aportion of the granulate material is disposed above the inclined supportsurface such that the inclined support surface is substantially coveredwith granulate material. The granulate material is adapted for slowingdown and capturing the projectiles.
