Took the SCCY out finally, 40 rounds, shoots where I aim it, just not where I want it. :groan: Lost a lot of brass, the thing flings em about 10,000 feet in whatever direction it feels will piss me off the most. I found less than 50% of what I shot. :neutral:

Overall, it didn't fail in any way, was comfortable to shoot and otherwise was just a nice feeling pistola. When it dries up some or I decide to go to the range with targets, I'll actually see how accurate it is. As it was I was able to keep a large metal holiday pop corn canister moving pretty easy from about 30 or 40 feet. Of course, that's like hitting the side of a barn.

I likey. :thumb:

Yep, mine throws brass back, up, forward, wherever it feels like. I recover about 80% but that's just because a lot of it goes up on the roof of the shop...

Good to know, I'm gonna have to imitate a great thinker (Jason) and build me a brass catcher...I thought of enlisting little woods nymphs, but they seem to be hard to catch at my advanced age... :groan:

Luckily 9mm brass is dirt cheap, saw a guy selling 1000 cases already processed and ready to load for 80 bucks shipped.

they are a good little gun, I would trust my life to one.

I don't need that many, just need to keep my stockpile at about 1000. I'll just buy the occasional Blazer Brass, or WWB when necessary to restock. Or go hang out at the range on Saturdays and Sundays. Last time I came back with a lot of spent brass. What I lost this time might show up as the leaves and ground dry out some.

Hell, There isn't much to it Randy!!
If it's a little breezy, you'll have to find a brick or rock to set on a leg of it so it doesn't blow over...
That's why I made kind of an "H" pattern on the bottom where it sits on the ground.
Better deal than a tripod I believe....

It makes shooting so much more fun when you don't have to crawl around on the ground looking for brass.

It works great to leave the shaft attached to the bottom and lay it on it's side when shooting off a bench or over the hood of a vehicle.
I put a sandbag on the shaft and the brass catcher stays in place.
Probably kind of hard to picture without seeing it.

Image

It's a piece of rebar that fits inside a piece of conduit
And Hose Clamp Adjustable too!!

Image

Drilled a couple holes in a plate for the studs to stick through.
And then welded it on top of the rebar.
The catcher can be "wing-nutted" on and off fairly quick.

Image

All you have to do is keep your self positioned so the brass ends up inside the catcher.

Image

It'll hold quite a bit of brass too!! Just unzip the back and drain the brass into a coffee can.

Another picture for you Randy...

Image

That's what I mean by laying it on it's side with the shaft still attached when shooting off a bench.
Works pretty slick!! :great:

Looks good! Could you get a better closeup of how the attachment goes on the base of the net? I see the two wing nuts (no I'm not talking about EX and Walt!). I guess you welded the rebar in between the wing nuts on the second bar?

I may have mentioned before a place I visited indoors in a guys 6 stall garage, he had a target range for pistolas set up and his backdrop was a large tub of sand with a 1/2 steel plate at 45 degrees hanging off the wall with steel side shields to funnel any errant shots into the tub. His brass catcher was a round frame made of 2x4's and 2x2's with 1/4" wire mesh (rabbit cage mesh) tacked around the outside and enough room to stick both arms and a gun inside it with an eye for recoil on top. The front only had a small opening to shoot through (about 4x4 inches). The bottom was funneled down to a 5 gallon plastic pail. He said it worked slicker n snot. Not something to transport however.

I had a guy off another forum volunteer to send me 1k unprocessed 9mm brass if I paid the shipping. Guy threw a total of 1600 in the box, cost me the flat rate shipping was all. I've got an ice cream bucket full that I deprimed and tumbled, plus all the stuff that I have loaded up so I'm pretty well set. I prefer unprocessed, not one of those who would trust someone else's sizing and such to where I'd just load it up.

That is exactly correct Tolly - welded it to the top of the rebar.
A guy can wing-nut the brass catcher on and off it that way.
Most of the time I just leave the base of the brass catcher attached and take the "Net' part off of it.
Which is real easy to do. (-:

All this talk about catchin' brass makes me feel guilty. I save what comes out of the revolvers and what's obvious on the ground. Then, I watch a "Hickok45" video and don't feel so bad. He's walking on so much spent ammo it sound like when your walking along the railroad tracks after they spread fresh granite. Guess it would be different if I were reloading.

If you don't reload (yet), it's still good as trade stock!!! Rare brass even more so...
