    Thanks. Just copying what I'd seen for sale on-line somewhere. Making it from stuff I had lying around had the advantage of being free, if you overlook the one needle I broke trying to get the machine to stitch through the wire by mistake!

    Pay some kid to catch it as it ejects. It will improve his hand/eye coordination, teach him to play through pain, and provide him with spending money. :D

    HI CPT-T, I read the problem you are having and have created a poly-plastic mesh sheet
    I call it "SHELL CATCHER"
    that's 6'length by 5'width for some of my gun buddies who hate picking up shells.
    So far it has worked for 12 gauge,20gauge, .22 and 30.06 rifles
    Depending on the ejection of the shell, this will solve most of your problems

    I'm located in sioux city IA my phone # is (712)-291-9735 My email is e7martinez58@hotmail.com
    If your interested, gladly give me a call and we can talk further about the type of weapon you use and the range it ejects the shells
    Thank you and have a good day

    Three words:

    Re-vol-ver :D

    Just kidding (mostly); I'm on the shady side of 60, and I feel your pain.

    couple options:

    1. Use a net brass catcher.
    2. Get a 'brass mower'
    3. Use a shop vac

    AT the present time I am using a peice of that blue plastic 6ft X 8ft and 5 or 6 bricks to keep the wind from blowing it away. The wind blows here in Kansas and our clubs range does not have very many wind breaks. But that is just some more stuff I have to haul out to the range and back. I have tryed to order one of thoes hand held brass catcher but have not recived it yet. But the 6X8 sheet of plastic seems to work better than any thing that I have tried so far but still have to use the graber most of the time. But it beats getting down on my hands and knees. Its the Pitts when you get old. Thanks for all your help.

    I use one of the CMM models and it works well for 38 super and up. 9mm or down tends to bounce out but at least it is close by.
