    Bob,
    I have seen a couple of people use a tool to pick up brass. It is made to pick pecans up off the ground. It works great for 45 acp.

    Thanks - I might have been a little concerned about how our women members might think but for the fact the t-shirt was a gift from my wife.

    But, then, she's always been very supportive of my motorcycling, guns, and shooting. I'm the luckiest guy in the world IMHO.

    Bob,

    With age does comes wisdom.....at least enough to know to strech out an old king size sheet, on the ground, to my right and centered at about 4:30, when I am at the range alone and just plinking. At the end of the day I just pull all four corners together and twist. I take all them home and only bend over 4 times. Ben doin it that way for years. A few fellows laughed at me the first time they saw it, but when they were finished and had to pick up all their brass scattered here and yon, you could see the light come on!!!

    tex......48 years young.

    Were not very PC here. Don't worry about it. You are lucky to have a wife like that and then again, I have one like that too. We are lucky guys. (Do our wives say that though?)

    Thanks - That newer Colt series 70 was a birthday gift from her also.

    She even tolerates (secretly likes) my dog sitting on her lap.



    Had to settle for another week without a bike ride or shooting and running the snowblower. Where's global warming when we need it?

    OJ.................
    Thanks for sharing the pics. I haven't reached your level of longivity as yet but I'm working on it. I'll be celebrating my 65th this Saturday aand I also love to shoot and ride the bike everychance I get. I'm just a beginner with the handguns and have aquired so far a new Stoeger Cougar 8000 in 9mm and a J-frame S&W .38 revo. I like em both just fine and can still pick up the brass. The catch system sounds great......I'll have to start doing that.

    Thanks for the kind words - Charley is the heavyweight in our family at 202# - "little" sister Katie only weigghs 187#. They were 2 1/2 Christmas day.



    and Charley does sit right on the furniture -



    And - I can tell all one thing - riding the bike and/or shooting sure beats this -

    Last night I purchased some 45 acp from Walmart and she asked me if I was 21. We laughed but she said she had to ask.

    Why did the groups stop at 59 ? I guess the advanced age groups don't count.
