Anyone ever used an "ammo wizard" for retrieving brass?

I ran into a guy at the range a while back and he was using one of these to retrieve his spent brass. He said his worked great and the bucket attachement made dumping the brass easy as well. I thought i'd see if anyone else had any experience with them.

I live in Alabama, and use a "pecan" picker which does the same thing for a lot less. :duh:

I just use my 5 and 4 year old. They do a good job but cost a bit

Do any of these (except the **** sapien models) work on gravel, or do they only work on hard smooth surfaces?

Yeah, I'm growing one of those as we speak, but it will be a few more years before he's ready to be deployed. He'll also recieve top notch "beer monkey" training.

In the meantime, I'm thinking one of these rolling cages will be far less expensive and require a good deal less training.

$45.00 :eek: Really? You can't just use something like this: http://www.midwayusa.com/viewProduct/?productNumber=855937. It is way cheaper and much easier to transport.

We had a purpose designed model at our 25m semi-enclosed range on post when I was active duty. Big basket in front and a large synthetic drum with a million little fingers for the brass to get caught up in. Little fingers would ride in the grooves and pop the brass into the basket. I don't work over there anymore but I'll see if they still have it. On smooth surfaces it worked great, grass too, but gravel not so much.



Check out Southern Belle Brass, that's the device we have at the range.
