    A little black mesh at the range.................

    The shooter setting up next to me pulled out of his kit something that looked a little racy, black nylon mesh. Watching him out of the tail of my eye, he put this device on his right hand. Had a little black elastic band that went around his hand.

    Well, I wanted to see what this yahoo was up to. So I kept my eye on him as discreetly as I could.

    Well, he finally took out a manly enough looking .45, a Springfiled, I believe it was. And, when he gripped the pistol, this thing sort of opened up like a fish net, and when he fired, some of the empties went into this little net.

    What won't they think of next.

    Didn't get any pics, did you Bob? That sounds like it would look very strange .

    I looked at that picture (had to copy and paste) and I believe that's what Bob was talking about. Seems like that would be distracting while shooting.

    Well, I couldn't get a picture.


    And I saw the man's target. Something distracted him.

    I've seen brass catchers of various types in catalogs, but have never seen anyone actually use one before...

    From my first post, I'd call this an "Almost Brass Catcher."

    Yeah, for some reason, the board isn't showing that as an image.

    I must not have the right permissions yet or something.

    I tried to edit it for U - then realized U are missing part of the link - U are missing the .jpg - the file extension... I tried to edit it manually, but apparently, Midway USA is using some different HTML codes or something - when I check the image properties, it only shows the part U copied... So, apparently, you cannot hotlink to their image. U could save the photo and upload it somewhere else yourself, though, like this:

    And after you're done, you can go catch yourself some crawdads

    If I'm target practicing, I pick a clean spot where I can pick up the brass off the ground. If I shoot a varmint or snake I forget about the brass. I can buy enough to replace what I shoot like that. I would hate to have to carry one of those things around with me in case I wanted to shoot at something.

    Since I own NO reloading equipment, I don't attempt to save my brass. Most ammo I shoot I can find cheaply enough so it doesn't necessitate reloading.

    Thor,
    Find a reloader friend you trust, save your brass. buy some bullets, primers, and powder, and give him a couple of dollars a box and you'll both come out on the deal. :-D

    I don't bother reloading either. And, 9mm isn't really worth it.

    After some bad WWB a few weeks ago, I now shoot CCI Blazer exclusively - so, no reloading that stuff anyway...

    I always feel good about my reloads 'cause that's one of the things I am pretty anal about. I would only shoot what I reloaded or what my friend (who taught me to reload) reloaded. I wouldn't buy reloads at a gun show or elsewhere.

    I've been reloading for over 45 years. I enjoy reloading and haven't had any kind of a problem with them. They are a lot more accurate in a rifle than factory loads. I don't reload unless I'm where I can concentrate on what I am doing without interruptions. I started with the old Lee Handloaders that you use with a hammer. It was slow, but now that I have a progressive press I love it. Reloads is all my Wife and I use in our Ruger 345 and 97's. Haven't had a misfire.

    Have you tried that CCI Blazer Brass?? I've found it to be pretty decent. My only complaint is that they don't make it in 10MM. The range I go to (an indoor range) won't allow aluminum or steel cased ammo.

    I've tried the Blazer Brass 2x now - works fine - but Wal-Mart charges $2 more a box than I can get the CCI Blazer for at Academy Sports. And, the Blazer Brass is $1 more than the WWB. So, I doubt they sell too much of it.
