I guess it would if you tried to fill it up but I empty the bag every time I fill the magazine and it works well. It's not ideal, but it beats chasing brass around, I think.


Posted the requested action video:

cool. glad you are satisifed with it. seems to have a few minor issues. its not for me thats for sure. most all of my pistol shooting is for SD training and its not logical to have that attached while in my CCW holster, or would i want all that blocking my vision or hindering my firearm in a time of need.

seems for the target shooter it would work most of the time though

I thought about getting one. Do you like the feel of it?

Yeah, of course there are some drawbacks, but for me it's worth it. It was a real pain recovering brass from my 10mm Witness before I got this. I do like to draw and fire and shoot while moving and the brass catcher would interfere with some of the training but I can still use it for most training that doesn't involve a light or holster. I do a LOT more draws at home than I do on the range, any way. It normally does not hinder your vision. The video above shows pretty much the worst conditions for the catcher: a fairly strong wind from right to left. You would obviously not carry the pistol with the catcher attached.

I do like the feel of it. Like I mentioned above, there are some unavoidable drawbacks but it's worth it overall, especially if you hand load and especially if you shoot at an unimproved range like I do. If you shoot at an improved range or a place with a lot less rocks, anyway, this would probably work better for you: http://www.amazon.com/Duke-Roller-Nut-Harvester/dp/B000FNK8K4/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1365005643&sr=8-2&keywords=pecan+roller

You have a pecan roller? Does it not work well?
