    My brass would be easier to find in 3 ft tall grass than if it landed in the back of my truck. :)

    It's a bit of a pain, but do-able by one. A 10x10 is about the limit. It's easier if you skip the roof and just use it as a frame with the side walls. I've seen an 8x8 model that would be handier.

    Shooting from the bench testing semi-auto pistols for accuracy and function, I used a cardboard document filing box about 9" x 12" x 2' set on the bench opposite the ejection port, with a rock in the bottom for stability. Not a very elegant solution, but it worked.

    The recent arrival of a mail order package changes the picture for those of us still living in the Great Ammo Depression

    This sweet little piece of tactical gear did not even make it as far as the dining-room table before it was strapped onto my right hand

    Now I feel like I’m ready to survive in a future wasteland, where brass is longer manufactured, and the only men who can stay in the fight are the men who catch their own brass

    When the assailant or home invader finds himself looking down the mouth of your Graco Mark 1, he will know that you aren’t just joshing around

    A club officer built one of these for each range shooting location at our local range.....haven't tried it yet....I usually just shoot where I've layed out a blanket. When I'm done I just bring the corners together and scoop them up into a plastic bottle.....

    Guess I ought to try this one out....who knows maybe I'll like it. ;)

    Nice rig there. You can work on your target practice, while your brass plays a game of Horse.
