    Brass catcher?????

    Okay, I purchased some bulk ammo for my 45acp and newly acquired 357 sig. Thank you AmmoMan!!!!

    Thinking, in the future, of trying some reloading, but either if I do or don't, I hate leaving all that brass lie on the floor at the indoor range. I sure as hex don't want to be down on my hands and knees rooting through brass trying to find mine, (uncool), after my sesion is over.

    Are there any recomendations as to an easy way of "policeing" your own brass?? I've seen those contraptions that attach to your right hand, but seems they may be somewhat distracting.

    Any input, gang?

    As usual, thanks in advance!

    I built a brass catcher with PVC and netting. I mainly use it outdoors though. It is kind of cumbersome to use in the indoor ranges I use once in a while.

    It mounts to the top of a camera tripod......works well.

    Sounds interesting!!

    A Google search turned up all sorts of designs. Here are a few.

    How about telling us what works best?

    And what are it's limitations?

    - Pickup 9mm?
    - Only pickup 40 and 45?
    - Pickup stones? [Many of the ranges we use have crushed stone just beyond the shooting pad.]

    If it works reasonably well, it's got to be worth a try. My back and knees don't take kindly to bending down a couple hundred times.

    Many thanks!
