Nut Wizard, Forever!

I hate bending over to pick up brass after a session at the range. Well, to be specific, my back hates bending over to pick up brass after a session at the range. On one of the forums, someone suggested that some sort of tool that picks up nuts from the ground might be a good answer.

I can now answer that question in the affirmative. I got the small model of The Nut Wizard. http://www.thenutwizard.com/ It was designed to pick up nuts and seed balls form the ground. It does that by allowing the wires that form its basic shape to spread apart slightly around the object to be picked up and then spring back into place, trapping the thing you just rolled over. It also does a very nice job with .40 S&W and .45 ACP brass on a concrete floor. Actually, it seems to really like the 45. 9mm doesn't do as well. The instructions say to roll gently over the area. If you push down too hard, you can bend the wires out of shape. With 9mm, you have to roll VERY gently due to their smaller diameter. For the .40 and .45, think of the Nut Wizard as a gun-friendly carpet sweeper.

I haven't had occasion to try it outside. When I do, I'll report back.

Nav Arch--Seems like you've stumbled upon a useful tool!

I must confess that when I first read the title of yr thread, my imagination went a little wild. But we'll leave that aside. Use yr own imagination.

Pls do post yr results on outdoor use! If it works this would seem like a GRRRR-eat addition to one's Range Day equipment.

The man that invents the first brass magnet will get very rich!

God Bless! I have a sweetgum on the edge of my yard and was not looking forward to cleaning that damned thing up! (Not to mention the golf balls).

Oh I guess I could use it for brass as well <grin>.

Have you tried it outside--say in the grass, or a gravelly-weedy area (short weeds)--like a range?

I've been using one of these guys (a "gopher").

Not as good for picking up a bunch at a time, but lets you be picky about what you grab when on a public range area that is full of shotgun hulls & steel casings...
