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.

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.

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:

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. :lol:

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.
