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

      Up for sell two Lee Load-All re-loaders: 12 Gauge and 20 Gauge.  All original components and paperwork is included.  Both re-loaders work just fine, I shot many clay birds with shells that came out of this "factory".
      Reloading supplies include:
      W209 Shotgun Primers 6 boxes
      No 9 magnum shot ~35-40lb
      Hodgdon International Clay powder ~3.5lbs
      12G and 20G wadding. Bags almost full as on the picture.
      Also, hundreds of assorted once shot shotgun shells.
      You can get to reloading business right away with this package.
      I want to sell this package all at once for $150.  Would not want to break it up.

    • All these items are items that you should have on hand anyways....regardless of current social ills. In my mind being prepared, is not watching the news cycle to see if you should prep, it should be ingrained in your psyche. Once you have a mindset of preparedness, you can rationalize a situation more effectively, as you know what you have done, to insulate in as much as possible, your family from social interaction. Your home security plan is also not something that is transient, it needs to be in 100% every day, even without any social abnormalities or additional potential upheavals. We have been living like this in the sticks of Sussex co for 27 years....this is why we never settled in LI or more densely populated areas. We weathered Sandy with not so much as a little dent, God grant us the same for what might be coming. Shotties and handguns are always loaded....ya know big bears and possible intruders......we don't have to go to rifles, just yet. I see all this as an opportunity and a wake up call for America.... I see this as waking some others up to how we need manufacturing back home....how we need domestic supplies, domestic production, domestic energy etc. What does that guy on YouTube say, - something from Deuteronomy 31:6 Be strong, Be of good courage and long live the Republic. And finally from Kipling...   If you can keep your head when all about you        Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,    If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,     But make allowance for their doubting too;    If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,     Or being lied about, don’t deal in lies, Or being hated, don’t give way to hating,     And yet don’t look too good, nor talk too wise:   If you can dream—and not make dreams your master;        If you can think—and not make thoughts your aim;    If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster     And treat those two impostors just the same;    If you can bear to hear the truth you’ve spoken     Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools, Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,     And stoop and build ’em up with worn-out tools:   If you can make one heap of all your winnings     And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss, And lose, and start again at your beginnings     And never breathe a word about your loss; If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew     To serve your turn long after they are gone,    And so hold on when there is nothing in you     Except the Will which says to them: ‘Hold on!’   If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,        Or walk with Kings—nor lose the common touch, If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,     If all men count with you, but none too much; If you can fill the unforgiving minute     With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run,    Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it,        And—which is more—you’ll be a Man, my son!

    • I found the Resolution, the most recent meeting minutes update was from last November. https://oprs.co.monmouth.nj.us/OPRS/Meetings/AgendaFrmHolder.aspx?eid=523&ty=1  
    • That's awesome! Much Thanks to all who were able and willing to make this happen! I thought I had read someplace a month or so ago that the Monmouth County Freeholders refused to even discuss it?
