Brass

I can't say that I've ever done something like that (yet :goof: ) but when I go to the range for practice and hit on a bunch of brass, I do consider it a good day, even if I couldn't hit the target from 10 yards. If I stumble on a pile where someone managed to have all their brass fall within a 5 foot radius I consider it a great day.

At my club the non reloaders pick up there brass and leave it in the tables for the next guy. I have been luck a few time to find a stash I could use.

Those are the best days and why I still volunteer to RO a few hours a month.

The last time my wife and I went to the range, I start unloading the gear and notice she is not helping. I look around. She got out of the car at an emply bay and was out on the range looking for brass. I dared not say I trainer her well, but I love her intentions.

That's a good catch there!!

I'll trade you a pile of .40 and 9mm for your .45 and 2.23! I police the BLM are I shoot at after a day and let everyone else know I'll clean their brass too. I have trash cans full of brass I don't shoot.

I hope you live in the Pittsburgh area! I'll buy your trash can full of 9mm brass!

I hate to admit this but my wife actually stopped shooting with me because I have to pick up my brass. In our hayday we would go through 2-3000 rounds a month and she would always help pick the brass up. One day at the range (American Shooting Center) in Houston, some smarta**, cop wannabe, range officer said "stop picking up the brass". Being my smarta** self I told him "this is my brass and I'm going to pick all of it up". We stared each other down, I picked up my brass, and that was it for my wife shooting. Anyway, no, I try not to look for brass when my wifes around. LOL

My local metal recycling plant gives me $2 / lb for brass. I'll pick it up from anywhere, no matter what, even if its beat to hell or I have no intention of reloading it. Keep a nice big garbage can full of it in the garage, and take it down a couple of times a year for a nice $60-$100 contribution to the gear fund. Great way to get some extra money on the side without upsetting the family budget too much.
