Indeed. It would be a shame if they took your design, improved it and then sold it for less money


In all seriousness though, (to the OP) it looks great! simple and it works... kind of like a Glock


How many times did you puncture yourself trying to get those nice bends in the wire?

This is what I've been using:

10mm Reloading Forum


PVC with mesh ziptied to it. Works pretty well. Some cases still bounce, though so it works best in conjunction with a tarp.

Sorry, but I have to ask:

Mr. Wiggin,
With all due respect, was that picture taken around 15 years ago, when those kind of shorts were actually in style?

I have a pair to CCW my shotgun. Being badass never goes out of style.


I used to just hang a sheet from two trees next to where I shoot. Wist I still lived there.

I got a chance to get a short video of it in action. Again I am not saying it's perfect, but it's good enough for me.

Interesting idea. For me I just order another 15 yards
of gravel, get on the Kubota, and make my shooting pads
bigger. Never thought about making a brass catcher.
I guess that would have been cheaper.

Version 2.0

Trying to reduce size and case bounce out. Untested at the moment, the new opening is only 2" x 1.5". As this one is more specific to my full size Glock, I'm not sure how well it will work with other pistols.

Both 1 and 2 will be thoroughly tested in a local shoot this weekend. I hope to get some feed back from non-Glock pistols owners as well.

Great Idea, and if you're able to combine it with the flashlight mount....

That's really awesome, and very creative. There's nothing wrong with sewing for guys. In Marine boot camp you have a sewing kit and need to know how to sew. I thought it was kind of weird sewing at first being a guy, but it proved to be useful in the field if you get your cammies tore on concertina wire. If you can sew like that then I say sew on, and consider selling them once you get it perfected. Thanks for sharing!

If you've got a price, I'd be interested in getting one from you. You can PM me if you want.

I concur. I would be interested in purchasing one shell catcher from your sweat shop/work bench.

I just sent out a couple PMs...PrecisionRifleman yours wouldn't go for some reason. Are you interested in purchasing one of these, or were you just giving me some advice?

I stopped by the fabric store on my way home from work because the couple that I have made depleted my supply. I grabbed some more black denim, as well as some small samples of...

10mm Reloading Forum

The Olive Drab is the thickest of the three, but a little thinner than the denim. The digital is a little softer, and the flames is the thinnest I think. The thinner the material the more it will shift and deform with weight and movement, but I couldn't resist.

If anyone has a color request I will try to find suitable fabric in that color, but other than for novelty I do not want to make them week.
