Great range day

Went to the club range to shoot the AR's with a buddy. We heard a bunch of shooting over at the pistol bays. It ended up being Ken Hackathorn having a private 1911 training course. After they were done and everybody picked up what brass they wanted and left my buddy and I went over to see if there was any brass left. We picked up around 2400 45 auto cases. My buddy doesn't shoot 45 so I got them all. The good news is they will be there again tomorrow, and so will we.
I don't ever remember being absent minded.

Get any shooting done? Watch out for those small primers. I'm headed to the range tomorrow, one day wasted working around the house is enough for this weekend.
Have a great day @ the range tomorrow, my friend!

Ain`t it great, 2400 is a big score, about the same where I shoot, lots of brass. There are lots of ranges where reloaders have fight for every piece, that has to be fustrating!

Excellent score. At current pricing, that's a decent haul.

I shoot at a private club and everyone reloads (well almost everyone). I think I've gotten maybe a couple hundred 45 ACP, 9mm Luger, & 40 S&W this year. I never get any rifle brass as that is picked up by everyone. There isn't a single guy that doesn't reload for his rifle.

I stocked up a bit when I first started reloading and have at least 6k pieces of 45 ACP, 9mm Luger, & 40 S&W so don't really need it. I do of course lose a few here and there. I pick up all pistol brass that isn't being picked up by the guy shooting next to me. It isn't often and it's been a couple of months since the last time someone actually left brass on the ground.
