WOW! What a Concept!
 
I was at the range yesterday. The guy next to me, on my left, was shooting an AR of some kind. I noticed that his empty brass were not flying in my direction. I wondered why so I closely watched him. He had some kind of cloth bag shell catcher on his rifle that caught the empty brass as it was flung out the gun. I told him that I appreciated the fact that he was using this device and he responded that he tried to be safe and respect the other shooters around him. Now if all of the other semi-auto shooters would do that the range would be a nicer place to visit.

those are sweet. ive been using basscatchers of some type on my AR15's for years. i got my first one back in the 80's. its was hard plastic only held 60 rounds of brass and was a bit of a pain to empty. the little baggy version work great and adapt to a wide variety of semi auto not just AR15

He's full of crap! He doesn't care about the shooters around him. He is a reloader! :D

The Rifle Club range here has brass catchers that you can use when firing semi-auto weapons.They look like a drawer standing on it's back with heavy canvas cloth loosely attached to where the bottom would have been.There is a catch box where the expended brass ends up after sliding down the cloth

I stole their idea and made one of these to attach to my portable shooting bench.Now I don't have to search all over for my brass anymore.It's great!!!

I need to make something like that for my CZ-82. Unfortunately, it would probably end up being the size of a kiddie pool. For a smallish pistol, the thing throws brass at least 25 feet into a 10 foot circle.

I use a couple of long wood working clamps and attach a beach towel to stop the flying brass. I even use it with steel case and 22lr.:p

I've started spreading a cheap 8x10 tarp on my right for the brass to fall on to. I put spikes through the corner grommets into the ground holding it taut. It makes it real easy to collect almost all of the brass after a session.

Shooters have been using brass catchers for way over 50 years

That's what we do at my cousin's house. It is definitely a time saver.
