So I'm pretty rusty after this winter, so I thought I'd do some 22ing and see if I could settle down a little.
I put new chicken wire on the T-posts, found some clothes pins and gathered up the necessary tools.

Image

Did a little shooting, then finished up on one target
First 10 rounds on the last target, then 10 more.
Image

Image
Not great yet, but better after 60 rounds than before.
I'm gonna try to get in more practice, and 22s are a great way to get your basics back.
Am I the only one doing any shooting?

Yep! ;) I'm way busy still just trying to make knives to pay bills. Have ammo and... devices. Just no time. ;(

Not shooting. I have plenty of 9's built, I just hate picking up brass now that my pistola shooting area is all overgrown with weeds.

Randy, This is THE answer for me...
Believe me - I hate picking up brass more than anyone!!

Caldwell brass catcher and home made stand.

Image

Brass catcher has a metal plate where it's all held together and has a couple 1/4" threaded holes I put bolts thru
to make "studs" that are on the bottom so I can wing-nut the brass catcher on and off the stand quickly.
That thinner piece of metal (where the wing-nuts are) will be welded to the top of the stand.

Image

A little closer view - With these 2 pictures, you can see the brass catcher itself is very easy to take apart.

Image

Just pull out the plastic ends and it collapses flat.
I keep this - along with 2 home made free standing metal targets - in my suburban 24/7 so I'm ready
to go to the range at all times!!
I am not blessed with living on some land out-of-town like you...
Where you can kick open the back door and unload a mag full AR or 9mm any time you want... :(

Below is the bottom of 2 piece stand:

Image

If it's a windy day, I have 2 chunks of concrete I keep in my suburban.
I put 1 or both on one of these 4 "legs" and that holds it in place so the shooting never stops!! (-:

Top part slides into the bottom and is height-adjustable with this Hi-Tech NAPA hose clamp...

Image

Below is the finished stand - except for welding the top on... Where the brass catcher would "wing-nut" on it.

Image

You can see I built it out of rebar and conduit - inexpensive stuff I had laying around.

I have to adjust the height and stand in the same spot when I shoot...
But, after a 100 rounds or so I unzip the back of the brass catcher just a little and all my 45 brass flows right into a coffee can!!

Randy - I'll just build you one or these and drop it off at your house...
I know it won't be right - but you can tweak it to fit you. :mrgreen:

Whadda you say??
I owe you one anyway... For all the Load-Master advise you gave me!! :great:

You might have to PM your address to me though... :shock:

:thumb:

My ground is soft enough to just stick a rebar in the ground...

What I was thinking of was more elaborate :oops: I was going to make a tent type that I stuck my arms into to fire. That way I could fire any firearm no matter which direction it ejected the brass. My PHP pistola ejects up and forwards. My AK ejects backwards and to the right, the Hipoint ejects due right, the AR is all over the place, the SCCY...I don't remember, the CZ is sometimes wild, sometimes all in one pile. :dunno:

Here's how to get to my place...

Directions...


Go east a few many miles until you get to the next major highway (Avenue of the Saints) and turn south for a few many miles until you get to where the Avenue of the Saints splits off, then follow it east/south for a few many miles, turn right (west) on a gravel road just beyond a steep hill and on it's own steep hill, follow that gravel to the 'T' and turn left (south), go a mile and turn right (west), follow that gravel west for one and a half miles. My dump is on the top of the hill on the north side (right)..only house on that road on that section (for those not familiar with farm/surveyor nomenclature- a section is a one mile by one mile square of land)

Can't miss it! :thumb:
