If you don't shoot, you won't have to worry about picking up brass.

check out Dillon Precision for their item number N95-21894 - they call it a brass wand. 
I Don't have one - nor have I used one - I just thought it looked interesting.
I have no idea if it works in grass - or on concrete only.
I happened to be thumbing thru the Blue Press, saw it, and thought of your post.

Pew-pew noises with an actual working firearm does have some satisfaction.

They do not work on grass, work well on concrete and hard packed soil.

Brass wands are used on the hard-pack soil/short grass at POC. They work pretty good for what they are.

I use my BUBCA when shooting stationary and I want my brass and don't want to or can't use a brass catcher.  It's also very appreciated by others at open ranges when my hot ejects aren't peppering the guy next to me.

Works benchtop or on top of a tripod (with a simple mod to bottom of the ammo can). Once you figure out where to position it (or yourself) in relation to the ejection pattern of the firearm you're shooting, it catches basically every case.  Sets up quickly once you have done it a couple of times.  I keep my reloads in ammo cases in the can to weight it down until the reloads get replaced with brass.

You're welcome to use mine and try it out or take a look at it and reverse engineer one of your own.  It's basically telescoping antennae type rods, window screen, velcro wraps and wire nuts that fold down into/up out of a mil ammo can.
