Hi all - I just found this handy little thing in the IDPA Tactical Journal as an ad and thought it might be useful for matches and sport shooters alike. It also looks like they have some cool portable stand products as well.

 

Brass Wizard by Uniquetek.com

 

brass_wizard.jpg

 

From their site:

The Brass Wizard™ is designed to make gathering your spent cartridge cases efficient and easy ... as well as saving your back in the process. The Brass Wizard™ quickly picks up most centerfire metallic pistol and rifle cases, and shot hulls. I've even used it to pick up .50 BMG brass!

 

Just roll the Brass Wizard™ over the cases and they pop into the basket! It picks up brass from sand, dirt, grass and hard surfaces. It will hold about 25 to 35 pistol cases before needing to be emptied.

 

The Brass Wizard will pick up:

Pistol Brass: .380 Auto, 9mm, .38/.357, 40 S&W, .45 ACP, 45 Colt, and up!

Rifle Brass: .223, .308, 30-06, 45-70, etc.

Shotgun Hulls: .410 bore through 12 GA.*

50 BMG: Yes, even 50 BMG and other large bore rifle brass.*

* If you want to pick up only shot hulls or 50 BMG, and exclude pistol brass, see the Brass Wizard II™ below.

 

Features

Will not damage the brass cartridge cases or shot hulls

Eliminates bending over

Eliminates handling of dirty brass

 

Minimizes pick up of dirt, stones and debris

 

Thought someone might find value from it.

It only works on fairly hard surfaces. Nice for indoor ranges, a waste of time outdoors if you shoot on grass/sand/gravel.

 

I've seen people using them at matches in the conditions you mention. I'm going to pay closer attention next time to see if they are really working.

If you're on fairly short or matted grass, it's actually not terrible. Col Mortimer was using one at the last Shongum match and it seemed to work fine. I plan to use mine there from now on. But you're right about sand and gravel, it just won't work.

I want one. Not that I reload, but some of the outdoor ranges I've been to are LITTERED with brass, some of which appears aged. Collect enough of it, and I may be able to buy some more ammo with the scrap XD.

Hell I never tried one on a nicely manicured lawn so if it works, then great. We've tried them at both CJ and OB and we were disappointed with the results, on the other hand we use them the OB indoor matches and there it shines. It isn't a bad technology, it just not the answer for everything.

don't scrap it unless you know it's either no good, or not re-loadable. People who reload will take it and toss you a few bucks, it's worth more to a reloader than a scrap yard and you will wind up with a few more bucks that way also..

I need to find a new squad

 

And change your clothes before you come to shoot, we smell the tacos/barritos 100ft away.................. ;)

 

I gotta shoot my 9mm more often so you guys can have my steel-cased Tulo junk mixed-in with your nice brass casings! I think I have .45 ACP in aluminum also! :)

      Up for sale is an unused Lee Loader Kit for .44 magnum. The kit comes as shown and has all of the parts that come with the set. 
      $20 for a face-to-face sale in the Princeton/Hillsborough area

      For sale awesome MEC 9000HN Hydraulic reloading press $600 !  I already have a pair of these machines and tuned this up perfectly. It has been stripped down, cleaned, assembled, lubed and run 200 shells. They chambered and shot perfect. This machine needs nothing to start loading shells at a rate of 300 per hour. If you have a single stage or manual progressive MEC, this is the machine for you. Your arm will thank you, the hydraulic 110VAC pump has a foot pedal. It draws less than 10 amp, can plug in anywhere. The sizing collet is in perfect condition. 
      It is set up now for 1-1/8 oz 1,200 FPS velocity using Cheddite 209 primers, WIN wad & Remington Gun club hulls. These are great hulls to reload, the plastic is perfect for re-crimping. I can set it up for another load or show you how to do it. 
      This machine lists for $1,211 at Midway + shipping but you can get a machine fully set up and working for the low price of $600 ! This will produce $9 per box Winchester AA loads for about $5. Plus the machine will always have resale value, parts and service are available from MEC. I have been loading on the 9000 for 5 years and they are easy to adjust & maintain.
      But wait................. 
      Act now and included in the price is the MEC maintenance tools for adjusting base re-sizing & main spring removal ($32 value), MEC Bushing rack ($30 value), 9 bushings ($45 value) 3 charge bars ($54 value). That is over $150 worth of extra stuff that you don't have to buy! The manual is included. Man that's a lot of extra stuff.
      The extra bushings will allow you to make any 7/8 oz, 1 oz, 1-1/8 oz shell at any velocity. You can make some low recoil now noise light loads for the kids up to a killer 75 yard sporting clay crusher for the end station at Lehigh.
      OK, this sounds too good to be true but I want to sell it to a forum bud and skip the hassle of shipping it on EBay. The machine is under power and will produce shells immediately. I couldn't sell it any other way. Pickup only in Brick NJ. 
      This is not me but it is a very accurate representation of the machine. Best to call or text 732-691-8706, I don't check Forum replies too often.

      I just wanted to take a moment and wish a very warm welcome, once again, to Shore Shot Pistol Range!  @shore_shot
      A very cool fairly recently remodeled range and a nice big store with plenty of firearms for you to try!  One of the oldest in NJ with plenty for both new and more experienced shooters.  I recall coming here after Rays closed up.
      Also, please visit the vendor page here

    • It very often is not taught in schools.  I moved in middle school and moved into a school district that had a pretty robust civics class that spent a quarter going over the basics of personal finance, budgeting, investment and stuff like that.  Later one year of health class was personal finance and retirement planning.  Outside of getting into more advanced math they were pretty solid. When I went to college I met back up with some of my friends prior to moving. They did not get the same kind of coverage of such subjects.   
    • There is absolutely nothing wrong with properly managed debt...  A majority of people cant buy a house or car with out it. Or recieve a good education with out it. Provided all of these debts end with valuable assets which allow you to earn more in the long run. I can pay off a car and house, at extremely low interest rates, while compounding interest in investments as the economy grows..  earn dividends.. utilize my own free crash to work for me.. instead of not having any.  So debt CAN BE GOOD, and can actually increase your net worth over time. Especially if that debt leads to valuable assets.  That requires working both side of the market.. and investing your surplus not spending it. And doing it smart. Why would I put all my money into a house to save 3% a year when I can use it to earn potentially 10%? The house eventually gets paid off, and I have a fat retirement account with a major asset like a home. Regulations can go either way... deregulating mortgages led to the housing crisis.. Clinton's dream that every American would own a home.. Any regulation that makes it harder to borrow money is IMO good, but when we need a way out of a recession.... we print money and loan it out. We make it easier to borrow and start the cycle all over again.     
    • The article doesnt dispute a single thing I have said, and doesn't support a single thing you have said. You just read it all, but being selective in what YOU want to hear. "families get into high-interest credit card debt as the economy grows" What are you even arguing?  I said good economies produce high debt...  I showed you the graphs, and even a very well written article explaining that from someone who managed Credit debt. You said people paid down debt in good economies, but you havent shown a single piece of evidence that suggests that.    Do you want to arguing if this debt is good or bad for an economy? then start doing that because you haven't.  Credit agencies just updated how they calculate scores due to people taking out personal loans to pay off credit cards, and then rack up the credit cards again... is that bad? Yes. Will unmanaged credit lead to economic down turn? Yes... but does that mean the economy today is weak? No. In fact, it's a good regulation that will better help lenders know who should not be given more credit.   I have shown in a number of different ways how debt is used to grow economies.. at this point you're just ignoring those fact. Whether it's a company looking to expand, a company looking for a start ( as corporate debt also follows the same trend), a family looking to purchase products, a state or local government looking to invest in infrastructure with bonds. All with the specific intent to create cash flow.  Unmanaged debt will crash the economy, eventually. They have been calling for this recession since the day Trump took office. As discussed in the article, when people are force to pay down their debt and cant obtain more due to a tightening economy, the economy peaks, less cash flow, and we head into a recession.
