hit rock bottom?

I was just at the range shooting an improvised paper plate rack. When the guys two bays down left, I of course went to see what they'd left. I only found a few pieces of brass, but also found a pair of prescription glasses. I picked them up figuring I'd turn them into the on-duty RSO on my way out.

A few minutes later, I heard a car arriving that sounded like it stopped at that bay, so I stopped to see if was those guys back looking for their glasses. It was. I mentioned that I'd picked up their glasses while looking to see if they'd left any brass, and the guy thanked me for finding his glasses and said they'd picked up all their brass and thrown it in the trash can, saying it was mostly factory 9mm and .38spc.

You can guess what happened next.

The trash cans at these bays are 5 gallon buckets...so it's not like I was rooting around in 50 gallon trash cans.

haha. Today was the 2nd time i was at the range since i started reloading, and i am paying just as much attention to where my brass is going as i do to my shooting. It sucks that half of the brass flies in front of the stall at the indoor range where you cant get it back.

Havent dug through any garbage cans yet, but i can see it happening.

The nearest indoor range to me doesn't "allow" reloads and if they see you picking up brass, they send someone in to sweep it down range :(

I prefer shooting outdoors anyway.

Man, I hate it when guys throw their perfectly good brass away. I appreciate the whole "going green" thing, but seriously, you none reloaders, help a guy out. LEAVE YOUR BRASS ON THE GROUND!

I'd ask the outdoor range to put out separate brass buckets for those who throw their brass away, but given what I've seen from the membership, enough people would throw trash in the brass buckets and brass in the trash ones that there'd be no difference between the two.

Just on a side note NJL, your avatar is great! And yes, I would've done the same thing even if it was a 50 gal trash can with my legs flailing about.

Actually, my avatar is probably a copyright violation :(
I should switch it.

I found one hundred (100) "look once fired" Starline .45 Colt cases in the brass bin at my range Saturday.

Thais has nothing to do with the topic. I'm just bragging...
