Tactical Trash Bag Brass Collection

A brass ninja tutorial:

That’s HSLD as _ _ _ _!  I hate collecting brass so much, so I like that idea.

Picatinny-Rail-Mounted-Gas-Operated-Caseless-Reloading-PressI actually used to collect all of my brass, but then I realized I would never buy reloading equipment because a) I don’t shoot that much and b) reloading isn’t exciting enough for me to want to do it.  Lucky my buddy Jon is a brass ninja and avid reloader so I just started giving it all to him when we went to the range.  Yea I still have thousands in all my calibers tumbled ready to go that I kept “just in case”… but I really don’t plan on collecting any more.

Thoughts?  Are you a brass ninja, a brass robin hood?

Eh, I’ve only got a .22 so collecting brass isn’t all that viable. I would like to get into reloading one day though, once I leave this shithole of a state I live in.

Yeah, I’ve got dozens of pounds of brass brass that I’ll never use, yet I still stop by the range just to pick it up even when I’m not shooting. I just like it for some reason.

I collect 5.56/.223 brass for eventual use in making 300 BLK rounds, but I do not yet own a 300 BLK rifle or reloading equipment. The rest of my brass I leave on the ground. I’m sure I will kick myself for that at some point in the future.

Why giveaway or throw away something of value? You may not reload today, but you never know what tomorrow holds. For years I was fool and just left my brass lay for others. Then I work up and started keeping it. Now I have 70+lbs of 9mm brass and never have to worry about it. I can focus my worries on finding primers and powder.

thats some good catching. would have been funny if they had been hot enough to melt their way out of the bag again.

I already paid for it, might as well save it. No one gets into reloading for the excitement, but it does become fun once you can recoup your costs, one of my friends grandpa reloads a ton and we shoot his reloads all the time out of all sorts of shit. If you like to shoot stuff like cowboy action etc, it helps to be able to reload those funky calibers.

Nice trigger jerk when the slide locked to the rear.

My friends and I shoot at my buddy’s grandpa’s house and he reloads also. We use a small plastic bucket to catch brass like this frequently. It creates a bit of fun for the person not shooting. Otherwise, you’d just be sitting there waiting your turn.

I shoot a lot of revolvers so retaining brass is no problem. Also reloading is kind of like knitting or any other repetitive activity, once you get into the rhythm you don’t really notice how time flies. If you use a progressive machine you will suddenly wonder where all your components have gone and where all this loaded ammo came from.

I’m a smoker. For a while I did Roll-You-Own (RYO) cigarettes. I could roll out five packs in about an hour of watching TV.

I bet you could do the same with reloading.

i started reloading to save money a wile back, i don’t have any extra money to show for it but i get to shoot a lot more.

I prefer to buy my ammo already loaded.
