Anyone other than me tired of picking up brass?
I recently heard of a net that you lay out to catch brass at the range. Clever idea I thought and addressed a problem many of us deal with on a regular basis. Initially I was skeptical about the price for what I was getting, but not after using it today.
This net is constructed of a very high quality material and has weighted handles on four corners and two along the long sides (shape is rectangle) which hold it securely in place. This would work well in the most windy of conditions if needed, but also makes the net lay taught to the ground in other "normal" conditions.
The Brass Monkey comes in a very high quality bag. I saw the video on the net and noticed they dumped the brass into a 5 gallon bucket. I may just use a 5 gallon bucket to store the net in all the time. This makes for easy collecting of brass. Just lift the four corners and dump all brass into the bucket, then throw the net inside the bucket and go home.
Once I placed the net and adjusted it one time in relationship to where I was shooting, it collected about 90% of the spent brass. I just walked around at the end of my shooting time and threw the few that missed on the net. Slick little addition to my shooting gear.
At any rate, just wanted to let folks know about the product in case they had not seen it and confirm it is of the highest quality. The material will last a very long time I am sure and the quality of the handles, which are weighted, are very high quality as well. Should save me some back pains over the years to come.
