The Range Officers on the Rio Salado Sportsmans Club here in Mesa, Az. take the swept up brass and dump in into 55 gallon drums to be sold to a vendor as scrap. Steel cases are separated into other containers and also sold at local salvage yard. Everyone is given the opportunity to collect whatever brass they choose, but once swept up and stored in the collection buckets it belongs to the club and no sifting through the buckets allowed.

I imagine it's the policy of the new range that brass that is left by the customer is property of Bass pro?

If so, can the customers shooting clean up their own brass and take it home with them?

If so, just ask shooters if they are not keeping their brass to hand it to you. Then you have a transfer of brass from the customer to you. Might work, might not.... better than nothing though

Yes that is BPS policy.. Can't accept brass as a employee.. But I am going to shoot today on my day off and see if I can sweep up some "extra" brass to put in my bag..

Not condoning anything, but have you considered armed robbery? Should be OK so long as you do it on you own time (off- duty)?

You need to invest in one or more brass catchers. They won't catch every round, but they'll get most of it and that's better than letting the range have it all.

I like hitting the range often before the hunting seasons open. I'm still surprised how many leave the shiny once fired brass laying in the dirt. For a brass rat that is paradise.

Our range's rules are that if you shoot it you can keep it but anything left on the ground by others is the property of the range. They collect it and sell to help maintain the range.
