Height of Tables at Bullseye Events

Post by Barry Wilson on Thu Apr 09, 2015 2:14 pm

Does anyone know if the tables at bullseye events are a standard height or are they all just approximately a certain height?  I'm building a home made brass catcher and it would help me to know.

They vary from range to range but usually they are about waste high for someone 5'10 or so but I have shot on shorter ones.

Try to make the height of your brass catcher adjustable, if possible. I shoot at about 8 ranges and the bench heights vary by 6-8 inches and at one range the height actually increases a few inches from the first lane to the last lane.

Barry;

I use a CMM brass catcher.
Am 6 foot tall and have it extended all the way to the top.
Has worked on various height benches for me.
The CMM is 30 inches fully extended from bench to bottom of the net.

Hope this helps.

Thanks, guys. You were all a lot of help. With all the money I've spent obtaining my guns this year I just can't afford an $80.00 brass catcher so making my own was much more cost effective. So far I've got $20.00 in it and probably won't have more than $25.00 in it total.

Never seen a homemade brass catcher that was worth a darn. May you be the first, otherwise you're just going to be "that guy".

There is the option of just picking up your brass.

That would entail bending over, not always a recoverable position on my part lol

I had to lighten up my 4 gun box with 4 guns plus ammo it was almost
80 pounds so I took out the extra drawer. So now what do I do with this
drawer ! and this is what I came up with now I have all my ammo in the
brass catcher and it won't blow over now. And I don't have to carry a
separate ammo box
