I know that there are shell catchers out there for shotguns.....are there any for semi-automatic pistols like the xd?

I am tired of picking the shells up from my back yard all the time, it would be a lot easier to just have a bag of some sort catch the bullets when I shoot, then empty that bag.

Something that attaches to the gun.

Yup, there's at least The Catch-All which basically mounts to the back of your hand. Never tried one. For a handgun, it seems like it might be enough weight as it fills to upset your grip and result in some possibly bad training, but not sure.

<edit>
Here's the CMM Ultimate Brass Catcher that is free standing on the bench and addresses my concern about the weight, but doesn't allow you to move around.

no offense, but this doesnt' seem like a smart addition to your pistol. sounds pretty lazy, too, IMO.

why not buy a roll of plastic or that stuff that looks like foam funnel cake, put it on the ground when you shoot, and pick that sheet up and empty that? it's probably cheaper than this contraption, and more dignified as well.

You can make the same thing out of PVC pipe and a tarp for 20$ at lowes ...

Just make a stand with a box on top of it ... drill 4 holes in the corners of the box. You can use a garbage bag to attach to the holes ... this should flare the bag enough ... set it up beside where you are shooting and viola ... instant brass catcher. If you want it to be farther away ... us a larger box at the top.

Oh, to clarify ... buy box ... I mean a pvc square made from elbows and pipe.

You can also make one out of wood, but the pvc will hold up better and be easier to transport ... just don't glue it together, and you'll be able to take all the pieces down ... and put them into a gym bag.

Years ago I made one by threading a coathanger through the drawstring tunnel of a Crown Royal bag, then forming a handle that I sandwiched between the grip and my shooting hand. Emptied after every mag or two, it doesn't get very heavy. Doesn't work very well for weak hand shooting, though.

If you don't want to buy a bottle of Crown for the bag, WalMart sells a 3 piece ditty bag set in their camping section for around $2

Gun mounted brass catcher = malfunctions. Besides, bending over to pick up my brass is about all the exercise I get!!!! :lol: :wink:
