    I'm looking to catch shells with my sons semi-autos and don't want adhesives on the receiver. Any idea how the rubber band works? I'm sick of wet and stepped on reloads. Pictures would help.

    Nothing on the YouTube.

    You folks are the best!

    just wrap a rubber band around the receiver and position it so it keeps the hull in the gun. You have get your fingers dirty digging the casing out, but at least its not on the ground or hitting someone on the head. Bill

    The blue bands from broccoli from the produce department worked great on my 1100 until I found my shell catcher that I had misplaced.

    Shot next to a guy who was using rubberbands for a shellcatcher. I and the shooter on the other side of him ducked rubber bands for 100 targets. I shoot a Remington 1100 with a Birchwood Casey shellcatcher.

    T&S shell catchers sell for 10 bucks. If you need help, I'll chip in!

    I picked up a package of ponytail tie bands at the drugstore and have shared them with new shooters at the range. They seem to work well and last longer than rubber bands. Mark

    Hard to send him the right one when he hasn't told us what brand and model of gun he has. Mark

    I've used rubber bands as shell catchers occasionally. 20% to 40% of the time they don't work, for all sorts of reasons. It's just a bad idea, and all the screwing around they engender annoys shooters around you. Get the real thing; it's not that expensive.
