Thats handy... and beats the snot out of a rake for those "extra big messes" of shotgun hulls.

Ummmmm, maybe you did not see this part. "The Nut Wizard" is made in the United States by American workers.

$50.00 for an American Made brass picker upper is not too much to pay, remember, the job you save may be your own.

I bet you cant make one for less and a chiropractor visit is 30$. So no its no that expensive IMO. And its american made. Well I guess you can wait till the chinese copy comes along for 1/2 the price and works 1/2 as well.

I use the "Standard" model of this at CAS matches: http://www.reacher.com/default.asp

China Freight has this: http://www.harborfreight.com/cpi/ctaf/displayitem.taf?Itemnumber=2434

I noticed they have a Nut Picker for brass now. The original ones did not pick up well on open ground with rocks...let the brass fall out. On a concrete surface it may work better.

The nut wizard is well worth the money. Been using one for over 1 1/2 years.
It is the greatest invention for reloading since the Dillon press. When a guy showed up with one at a match, guys were fighting over the brassing job.
Next match 3 guys showed up with the Nut Wizard and then more bought them. The Sac Valley range even bought them.
Before the wizard I used a trash picker upper, or grabber, you can get them at Home Depot for about $20, then I got a small fish net on a dowel to put brass in.

Same here :)

But if a shooter needs the assistance, more power to the assisting.

The nut wizard is great and not half as expensive as most of the other brass pick up tools on the market.

shotguns all you need is a magnet on a rod. I see them at trap ranges.

Does the ammo wizzard work just as good on dirt / outdoors.

I suspect you will pick up small rocks and the like but way better to get all your brass and not break your a*s (err back) :P

Better yet, a simple canvas painter's tarp works wonders. A few rocks for weight keeps it in place when the wind picks up. If you take a minute or so to set it up right, it'll catch a good 80% or more of your brass. Then just pick up the strays at the edges.

As for range pickup brass from yesterday's shooters? Well, you're on your own there, brother.
