    One of the competitive female shooters at my range had this tool while shooting today. I was amazed and thought it was the coolest thing since sliced bread!

    I have a catch net I use and also a small plastic flower/shrub rake along with one of those folding janitor dust pans.

    After seeing this in operation I am ordering one! Just roll it around, it grabs the brass, then put it over the bucket and the metal hook thing opens a gap in the wires and out the brass falls. Yes, it works just like the videos on this and other web sites. No, I have nothing to do with the company. I wish I had one years ago for a house I lived at that had Sweet Gum Trees. Stepping on those prickly things was a real pain!

    About as close to a brass "magnet" as you can get!

    I modified a telescope paint roller handle so mine was shorter to haul it around. I like how you can be selective about what you are picking up. If you really want to see something pick up loads of brass you need to google bag a nut.

    Works well in grass or dirt. Okay on concrete.

    I think this is an excellent idea. However for 45.00, I'm too cheap to buy one and besides I could use the exercise picking up my own cases. :)

    They say a "small shipping charge" I went through the check out. It's $16 parcel post!

    So no, I am not getting one now either.

    If you google "holts nut wizard", you will find the guy that invented it. I ordered 3 and they shipped for the price of one, I then sold the other two to fellow shooters I have $20 in mine now.

    It kind of reminds me of the gizmo that picks up golf balls at the driving range.

    If you do a Google search for pecan nut roller you can find them for $15 to $20.

    We have one we bought from UniqueTek. It doesn't work well on gravel, since it picks up the gravel, too, and our range has gravel....

    Hope this helps.
