Brass catcher to go....

After studying brass catchers I decided to make one to go with my dumpster pistol rest.
Had some copper pipe for the net frame. The net is pet type window screen and the stand is a yard sale camera stand.
Tried it out with the M&P9 today shot about 280 rounds, and only had to pick up about 15 that didn't get caught.







Only problem I had was it needs some weight or staked down, other than that it worked well.
Thanks for looking.

Looks nice. Perhaps you could build another one from PVC. It may be lighter than copper pipe.

if it is all jointed together like it looks you should be able to turn it upside down pour in sand and cap it off if ya need weight. this may take time but is cheap!

i agree it looks just fine and i would have used pvc but i cant afford that much copper lol.

maybe your a plumber and can just drag it off your truck like my brother used to do lol.

thanks for the idea
