Many times items arrive here at World Headquarters that have me wondering why anyone would think up such a thing. Sometimes, they turn out to be useful, and other times, not so much. Shown here is an item about which I had my doubts, but since it is my job to try such things, I gave it a whirl.

The Brass Grabber is a net for catching empty brass as it is ejected from a pistol or rifle. The Brass Grabber attaches to a shooting glove, and it comes with the hardware already on the glove. The net bracket easily and quickly attaches to the glove, and the idea is that the Brass Grabber will catch the empty brass as it is ejected. Well, I had my doubts, but the darn thing works, and works well. I shoot left-handed, so it does not normally work for me, but I shot right-handed to try out the Brass Grabber with a 1911 pistol, and it caught every piece of empty brass. I also tried it with a couple of other pistols, and it worked well with those also. The Brass Grabber is also advertised to work with some semi-auto rifles.

The Brass Grabber is one of those simple ideas that should have been invented years ago. The Brass Grabber also comes with a thin, supple leather glove for the left hand. If you are a right-handed shooter who is tired of chasing brass, give the Brass Grabber a try. For more information on the Brass Grabber, and to place an order, go to
