    Who?
    Where?

    There's not many options out there.
    I'm seeing them for $80. :confused:
    Anyone make their own? That's what I'm doing.


    Now to put my sewing skills to work. :D

    I'm wanting one for my G19 to start. Shooting at the local range was not an issue with picking up the brass. Shooting in grass at my range will be a headache.

    The mounting method, yeah, upside down. I like the price though!

    I would like to see a mount in person. Bending and welding a net frame is no big deal.

    Buy a 12x8 tarp at Bimart for $6 and put it on the ground where your shells are landing.

    Even worse case it's raining, you can still funnel it all into a tub and dump the water.

    It what we do when we are up in the woods.

    Not really a catcher, more of a picker upper.
    Is a good use for kids, they don't mind as long as they get to shoot also.

    I resorted to kids for 19 years x 2. I'm no longer an EOE :D

    Learn to shoot left handed and hold a small garbage can in your right hand...?

    Do like I do.

    When my buddy shoots I catch them in mid air like I'm picking groceries off the shelf. Funny as crap watching me do it and he is oblivious until I hand him all of his spent cases when he turns around.



    I'm working on a stable portable black hole that has the capacity and gravitational pull to suck the brass once ejected into its vortex and once past the event horizon it will be transported to the house in the bucket.

    I got a frame already made up that fits real nice. Problem is, I had just one stick of wire.
    Now I need to get a couple more sticks so I can better the form. Stainless will be nice if I can find them. While I'm at it, I'll look for a large tropical fishnet on the cheap that I can adapt. Either that or a mesh shirt I can cut up.

    tropical fishnet may be plastic. Remade frame and pouch for the FAL and used bluejean material.

    Go to a welding shop and get a couple stainless welding rods. Just knock the flux off.

    Another option (although not SS) is using ceiling wire, the stuff they use to suspend T-bar ceilings with.

    Plenty of options for wire rod out there. I don't think I'd use "wire" though. Not enough tensile strength.

    Lots of DIY stuff, do a net search and you'll get a lot of ideas...

    Like an upside down beach umbrella :rolleyes:
    Something with a PVC takedown frame and some mesh, maybe.
    Or a tarp
    Something attached to a handgun would be distracting for me.
    :D
