Also new to the forum. Don't bother catching it just get a brass magnet to help clean up when your done. Cuts clean-up time in half.
Caldwell brass catcher for the rifle. There are 2 models im aware of. One has a couple prongs that slide in the top rail but may not work depending on your optic mount and location. I have the one that velcros around the foregrip at the front of the receiver. I leave mine unzipped and let the brass fall out. It tends to drag down after shells accumulate if you dont empty it frequently. At a bench they fall right in place. Standing and shooting they fall at my feet and i sweep them up. Beats the heck out of having some schmoe 4 lanes down sweeping my brass and tossing it. Im not aware of anything for pistols although Ive seen some net things rigged up. I never worry too much about pistol brass. I just try to sweep it kinda frequently and I always seem to come back with more than I brought. i do try to monitor where the brass ejects and try to keep it from flying too far away. Like staging in the stall where it bounces off the divider back at me instead of forward of the line or out behind me.
I have heard people say that. If you buy your own bullets and shoot them, you still own that brass. They might say that but I guarantee I have talked to enough ranges, they won't stand behind stealing your brass.The local ranges here usually say they get to keep all brass, which you may also find to be the case, but as mentioned, there are a number of things for you to consider.
