    Default Recovering .50AE brass at range

    What do other members on here use to catch brass, at public ranges? I've been thinking of trying to adapt a brass catcher made for AR type rifles, attaching it to the rail on top of barrel, but in my case, I've got a 2 power Bushnell scope occupying that position. Although I've got excellent iron sights (Williams Firesight rear,Dawson Precision front) I really shoot much better groups with the scope. I've been thinking that maybe just a plain plastic drop cloth might be the easiest solution, but my pistol throws brass kinda just anywhere! Give me some ideas of what you fellows are doing.

    At indoor ranges I generally get the lane furthest to the right so the brass will eject toward the wall and stay relatively close. Outdoors is tricky, large drop cloth but maybe not plastic as the brass is rather warm right after firing. It might be a bit cumbersome but a vertical barrier like a hanging sheet, screen or net might work if it's not windy. Usually .50AE brass is pretty easy to spot amongst all the common calibers that typically litter the ground so I've not gone to any great lengths to develop a better brass recovery method.
