Casing Catcher?

Post by Steamerbill on 10/4/2016, 9:35 am

First topic message reminder :

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..

it is interesting how times change. when I first shot in the 70 and 80s we all had screens and frankly rarely put them up.. only if you were really getting pelted..  yeah I've had hot 45 brass get stuck in my glasses frame... burned several times... 

the first thing I noticed when returning to BE last year was the brass catchers.... Everyone at our matches has them....So Jimmy made some for the family just to be the same I guess... but I do still carry my screens to the match, Maybe it just a social thing..

whatever works for you..

I'm posting this just in case anyone wishes to make a brass catcher.
I made one from the following:
-mesh type laundry bag from Walmart
-spring steel loop from collapsible windshield sun screen
-aluminum rod from very old outdoor TV antenna (Ha!)
-misc hardware to fasten it all together

The laundry bag has a draw string in it.  I just pulled it out and fished the the spring steel loop through the bag.  I then clamped to the bag to a long section of antenna rod, using other parts from the antenna.  From there, just mount the whole thing to a small piece of plywood, steel plate (whatever you've got/like) and C clamp to the bench.
If you shoot at an indoor club with some sort of dividers between points, just the bag and steel spring loop assembly can be attached to the range fixtures.

I haven't been back to Perry in a number of years, but the last time I competed there, the range master asked that shooters police their brass. Has that changed?

We are still supposed to remove your brass.

Except when it sinks in the mud faster than you can bend down.
