Hey Guys
I made it out to the Elk forest range yesterday.
Meet some cool guys and sent about 450 rounds
Down range.
Anyway someone there said that the last time
He was at Ommelanden range, The range Master
would not let not let him pick up his brass.
He went on to say that he was the only one there
And not getting in the way of other shooters.
Does anyone have any input on this?
I have never reloaded but plan to some day, so
I pick up my brass.
~Thank you, Wallace

Any time I've been to Ommelanden, they WANT you to pick up your own brass. I've never heard of a RO saying not to clean up after yourself.

My guess is that the person was shooting what the RO reloads, so the RO wanted the brass for himself.

Pretty selfish if you asked me.

I dont know. I know SHELL picking is listed at the trap fields.

I've never had anything said to me (alot of time I will be a brass whore) at other stations too (as long as I do NOT get in the way of the shooters). But, I volunteer there too.

Anything that lands forward of the line belongs to the state. I was told that it's an Omm policy, not the RO's.

Anything behind the line is fair game. Most of the RO's don't seem to care where you pick it up from. A few do. If those guys get to know you most of them don't seem to mind.

But it also depends how busy the range is. If it's hopping busy they're not gonna wait for people to pick up brass in front of the line. Go down and get your targets up fast, then return and pick up your brass while everyone else is still posting their targets. It'll give you a small window to work.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but if people are posting targets, you're NOT allowed to be in your "booth." You have to stay behind the yellow line. It's a safety thing, with people downrange the RO doesn't want you near your gun.

I think he is talking about the brass in front of the booth. Pick it up quick while others are posting targets. You are correct, should NOT be in the booth while others are down range.

I don't think you can go to the front of the booth when others are downrange, either. You're still AT your booth near your gun....

I was talking about the brass in front of the booth.

Don't approach the booth or linger near it. You really don't need to anyway because you can police the area 2 or 3 feet infront of the booth with one of the floor squeegees from where you stand behind the firing line.

It helps if the RO has seen you a few times and knows that you're a predictable shooter with safety on your mind. That way when they see you approach the firing line they know you're not gonna drop what your doing and grab a firearm the split second they turn attention away from you.

There are even a few ro's who will give you discarded brass if you ask them, even to the point of watching out for a certain caliber for you. Not for me yet, but at least one of them has for my buddy.

I think the intent of the brass ownership rule is to promote the natural flow of customers when the range is busy, as it often is. Y'all know as well as I do that there are shooters who would scarf up everyone's brass, delay the range while they putter around cherry picking their own brass, etc. The rule let's the state say, "It's our brass, move on." Some days people are lined up to get in that place and they try to let everyone get their turn. It's also why they'll only sell you one hour per person at a time.

On a semi-unrelated note, Jason clued me in to using magic markers to mark your case heads for identification. Pretty good idea.

When I change a target at Ommelanden I stop and pick up my brass in front of my booth.
