Casing Catcher?

Post by Steamerbill on Tue Oct 04, 2016 10:35 am

Hello all,

I am new to Practical Pistol Shooting. I have shot a partial match and really enjoyed it. One of the guys that I shot with had a fishing net looking thing that I can only call a casing catcher. Stands on the shooting table and catches spent casings so you don't have to sweep. I have since looked all over with no luck.

When can I find those? I have since seen a lot of them in black to have to have been commercially produced.

Your help appreciated..

The brass catcher you want is made by CMM machine, its the best hands down.

Welcome to the forum.

I am new to bullseye shooting also, the CM-Machine brass catcher that DavidR mentioned is the one I bought last spring, it is top notch.

My 2nd was a CMM, save $ and make your first. Expensive, but you get the best by several magnitudes IMHO

I've been looking at this one and they sell it with different size stems. What would be best or most common for bullseye since we shoot standing? I think the 16" maybe since its adjustable to 30" if need be. That gives a lot of room for different size (height) benches.

As I read the site, the lower edge should be at the low edge of the ejection port. For most benches and people, this should be about 16 inches give or take so if you get the 16 inch model you should be good.

Part of the decision is based on your own height. I am 6' 6" so I got the tallest stem available. There is some adjustability within the stem so it can adapt to a range of bench heights.

Brass net

Post by dennymac on Wed Oct 05, 2016 4:41 pm

One thing that has yet to be mentioned. The benches at Camp Perry are a lot closer to the ground than every one that I have seen at the local matches.
You might need to consider that to help pick the height. Best of luck, and have a great day. DennyMac

The CMM rods are just 1/4 inch tubes, 
buy some stock rod or similar and cut as needed.

Not rocket science here. Get the 16" stem model. In the unlikely event you need taller, CMM has different length extension rods.

Why bother using a net at Perry? Get a screen protector so the other guy isn't hitting you and shoot.

I bother with a net at Perry & most places I shoot as part of being a good neighbor & guest of the range.

Just one more thing to mess with and eff up.

If you must use one, CMM is the best by far; please do not try to cheapo out and make your own out of mosquito netting and PVC.

But first, look up and down the line and see how many High Masters you see using them.

They are called "Sharpshooter Nets" for a reason.

When you get old and decrepit, you will like your brass catcher even more.

I have a CMM net that I use on my practice range at home. Keeps my brass from being lost in grass, leaves, or snow.

I've found that it makes a wonderful wind sock. I tried to use it once at a match in North Dakota. What a calamity!

On the plus side Jim, you no longer have to wonder why we bring weights, bunji cords  & c-clamps to matches.  It's to hold our boxes & brass catchers from blowing off the bench.

Al, is it true that on the rifle range the wind flags are a 4' section of log chain?

I think John is saying that the High Masters don't worry about the 180 pieces of brass shot in a match. They're eliminating one more distraction.

There is, however, a social grace thing too in that you're not pelting your neighbor with brass when you use one. Years ago we had wire mesh screens clamped to our boxes to prevent brass from pelting us. Many still carry these things.

Catcher Required

Post by Steamerbill on Thu Oct 06, 2016 5:20 pm

At the local range I have started shooting at, policing your own brass is a requirement. At the end of my first match we had to sweep brass since 2 of the 3 us that were shooting did not use a catcher. Not a huge thing, but ...

A brass catcher is a good way to deter the brass rats from getting under foot and helps to prevent fights between those amongst us having an emotional attachment for their brass.
