shell catcher

6 posts in this topic

Looking for some input on a location to get a shell catcher for a benelli montefeltro. I have been shooting some trap and the shells are hitting the shooter next to me. Is there any off brands or do I have to go straight to benelli?

Thanks for any help.

T&S industries makes one. But they have to modify your bolt handle, you actually have to send it in to them, bummer. Birchwood casey makes one that I have seen used on the range. Its metal and is a universal fit. Only downside is the double sided sticky tape that it uses. I don't know how it will effect the finish on the gun. Those are the only two that I could find. Good luck.

96 thanks for the info. Don't want to hurt the finish I will have to call benelli direct and see if another brand will do.

Once again thanks.

A buddy of mine just used to put a rubber band infront of the handle on the receiver and it worked to keep his hulls from hitting the ground. It would catch the front edge of the hull and keep it from kicking out of the gun

Picks, I have seen this used before. It does work until the rubber band breaks. I'm not sure if it would work on all guns. If the bold is tight to the reciever, I think the montefeltro is pretty tight, but might be worth a shot. Also, use a pretty heavy rubber band, like the kind you find around brocolli at the supermarket. Problem is, then you usually have to eat the brocolli.

Use a brocoli or asparagus rubber band. Cheap and they work.

    • cool find!  sure looks like a Swainson's.  
    • Great info.   Thanks Steve!   Jim
    • Came across this hawk on Earth Day at the edge of town. I've been told dark morph Red-tail, dark morph Swainson's and dark morph Broa- winged. Anyway, it's a dark morph some kind of hawk.
    • Yes it was.  I really needed one more layer today.  Lots of jakes and hens seen by us this morning.  Still looking for the toms.  Hope you had more luck.
    • There are a lot of apps available for that. Search your app store for "phone tracking" or something similar. Many give you the ability to share your positions so you both can see each other live. You might even have an app already on your phone. For example, I have Lookout Security installed on my phone and it includes the ability to find the location of my phone from another phone or PC. 
    • Watch your City Ordinances.  Some city's require a back-flow preventor, and it can be VERY expensive. I have both the battery backup, and the water driven sump pumps in my pit--all at different elevations, and feel very confident. When the water comes up, and the power goes out, the battery backup starts working.  After that the water driven sump pump will kick in.  The water driven pump will keep pumping until the power is restored and the main pump returns everything to normal. There is always water pressure in a power outage (from the tower).  Cities keep the tower full for fire protection
    • So proud of my 93 year old dad.  It's getting tougher and tougher just getting him out there, but he still knows what to do once there.    
    • I still gotta tag Moose! I'm going for a Tom only!!   (Personal thing) is ,,, I want to do it with my bow
    • Shaggy parasols are coming up in the shade garden again. Yum.  
    • VTX129 has a great point on nothing smaller than 9". I have a HB 998Ci HD unit. The bottom features that I can pick up are incredible- however I sometimes have a problem picking fish up on it. I have tried to keep my SI width narrower to help ID fish. Overall fantastic tool. The hard to soft transitions are easy to see as are rocks and so forth. On the HB units the larger screened ones come with the High Def transducer.  The smaller units come with a compact transducer. You can find some great prices on models that are being phased out - but they also will quit repairing those units sooner as well. Trade off's. Check out Universal Mania and some others online for pricing. Bass Boat central has a lot of info under Humminbird and Lawrance topics.   Good luck   Steve
