    I was going to suggest going to the local hardware store and picking up a nail apron. The canvas ones with the store name printed on them probably only cost a couple of dollars. This one is <$4.00

    When I shoot my revolvers, I also shoot 1911s and lever action carbines. I put a large painters cloth on the ground so ejected brass is easily found and not lost in the grass. For the revolvers, I just pick them out and stick the empties back in the plastic case they came outta of, or dump them into a coffee can as others. Seems no more work than going thru the speedloader thingy. But we all have a range routine and are compulsive about something. Whatever works.

    Given that it sounds like you're in an area that has snakes I guess not bending over to get your brass might not be a bad thing after all.

    But of all the non bending over solutions I'd say that a wide mouth hold open dump bag would be the best for the reasons mentioned by rcmodel and others above related to "you do what you practice".

    For slow and deliberate target shooting putting your brass back into the speed loaders is fine. But if you carry or shoot in any of the various speed focused competitions then you want to practice rapid reloads. And with a dump pouch at least you're working with a technique that won't set you up for bad failure in a speed related scenario.
