there is nothing on the range floor to pick up (hey it's a revolver).
Heh. There was a time. And us old timers remember when you could go out to the range and sweep up 38 and 357 brass - especially 38.

Back when revolvers were more popular, shooters used to commonly eject their brass onto the ground. Now days, semi-autos are much more popular - especially with occasional shooters. Revolver guys tend to reload.

I'm very fortunate that my range lets me have all the brass I want. Not only can I sweep my lane, they also let me sift through the buckets as well. I have so much 9mm, .38sp, and .223 that I no longer bother with them. The only thing I look for now is .357 mag and 7.62x39, and I'm collecting .45ACP for when I finally break down after 40 years and get a 1911.

Once you get one, you'll wish you got one decades ago. I love 1911's - I have three.

This, coming from a die-hard revolver guy.

AND, 45 ACP is fun to load.
