Brass has gotten so expensive that we cannot keep the brass buckets at the range anymore. The Club put buckets out so we could get extra funding for Pot Shots, instead, members, and non members regularly take the buckets and the brass. Would not be such a bother if the thieves just took the brass, but no, they also take the five gallon buckets. Most of the brass in the buckets is .22 LR as centerfire is picked up immediately.
If I'm not shooting, I'm reloading.
