Plinker / .22lr : a cheap and fun way to do some training for rifle shooting, but collecting the small brass is a pain in the ass, especially on outdoor ranges, especially on winter when there is snow and all.
It is not stupid if it works!
I knew that I was going to range on next day and there was going to be snow, so I started thinking if I could create a brass catcher from items currently available at my apartment.
Apparently you can get a fully functioning .22lr brass catcher with almost no cost. All you need is the following items:
- 1 liter milk carton: enough volume for brass not to bounce back in to the action and easy emptying (as can be seen in the above video)
- 1 wooden fork
- 1 ice cream stick (without the ice cream, eat it first)
- handful of staples, few rubber bands and a knife for cutting the carton
