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.

So I got a universal rail mount worked up that should work on most other guns. The front of it is longer and is bent down for slides that are longer than the frame. The rear part doesn't go quite as far toward the trigger before it gets wider for those guns that don't have as long of a rail before the cross grove.

I will still make full size glock only models where the wire fits the full rail for those that want it. I can also make a compact glock model.

I also tried a different bag shape. I think it will work well, but I will not be making any more of these with radiuses because it's a PITA! I will, however, be making the bag from now on with a little offset to clear the hand a little better just no radius.

While I was growing up, my Mother was a seamstress. I learned to sew and found it helpful in the Military. There is nothing wrong with being self sufficient (knowledgeable).

Sorry, this range report is a little late. I got a chance to go shooting the other day, and got to try the smaller design for the first time. I shot about 46 rounds of 10mm. I only had to pick up about 7 cases that eluded the catcher, and I only lost 1 the whole day. I am surprised out of those out of those 7 that I only lost one, as there were a lot of people at this shoot and there was a couple thousand rounds of brass on the ground.
I think I will be making a mid size bag from here on out. I did have to adjust the small one just a bit, by hand, to get the height right, but after that it worked great.

I have an 8 yr old that functions as a brass-catcher/finder, but this would be a lot cheaper and lower maintenance!

You shouldn't think of it that way. Your just getting more for your time and money by having the youngster stay busy.

I knew I saw this here, and not on INGO. I was so surprised when I mentioned it at the shoot and then you handed it to me.

Hey Dave,
It is on INGO and INS as well. It gets a little confusing for me with so many people from 3 different sites, I was surprised when you mentioned seeing it on GT at the INGO shoot. ha ha

The 8 yr old brasscatcher is handy, but it really slows down range time when he starts shooting his cricket.....

I use 3bucc brass catchers for my AR10& AR15, so I think your pistol version is a great idea!
