That is a great idea - and works with most weapons except the P3AT which can eject brass anywhere from 5-50 feet. If we are going to be shooting a fair amount I take this one step further. Put down a tarp and then put up a screen room tent 10x10 or 12x12 and shoot from within that. Then MOST of the brass stays in the screen room. If it's cold we even use walls and put a heater inside to help keep warm but I hate not being able to see 360 degrees around me when I have weapons out.1943 said:I keep a 9x12 blue plastic tarp in the vehicle. Find out where your first few shots are landing and adjust your stance accordingly. When you are done just pickup your brass and you are good to go. Nothing hanging on the pistol and you can use this anywhere.
I have had the same problems with dropping hot brass on the unsuspecting public. At a range, here in Tucson,they ask me what I am firing and then send me all the way to the right side of the range! It all started when I test fired one of those huge CZ52's with old Bulgie commie ammo. The empties would fly three bays down! I don't know why they were upset. After all, the huge bang,black smoke and bright flash should have warned them what was on the way. I guess when the little P3AT did almost the same, I got relegated to right field. ;Dsniper7369 said:I finally figured out how to keep all my .380 and .32 brass.
Where? What's it called? Got a link?xpilot said:I purchased one that fits around your hand, 3 fingers (not the trigger one) and can be used with all your guns. It misses one every once in a while, but over all has paid for itself. I reload and want to recover MY cases not anothers
