I’m sure you don’t have those in Texas, but in KY they are at some of the state wildlife management area shooting ranges. The pipe is about 18” diameter, 20 ft long with about a six inch opening at the end of the pipe. You can only see the target in your lane thru the pipe slot. If your bullet doesn’t exit the slot, it hits a deflector and goes into the ground. It’s a safety thing mostly to prevent careless shooters from sending bullets where they aren’t supposed to go. It also tends to amplify the muzzle blast sound.
