    ........Thinking that compliance issues over unauthorized destruction rather than resale of brass had been resolved back in 2009 and again in 2010, tips that the practice was ongoing and continuing resulted in a special Gun Rights Examiner investigative report in January about reports of destruction at Fort Drum in New York, but not in clarification from responsible authorities.

    Would that be the once fired brass from the cartridges that they purchase with our hard earned tax dollars that fund the military and the government?

    There's a National Guard Armory here in Rapid City that regularly sells its expended brass to a local recycling facility, Pacific Steel. I sometimes snoop around Pacific for bits of copper and brass to use in various projects, and they have a large Gaylord-type box used for shell brass. This box is frequently full of thousands of expended 5.56 and 9mm (and often .50 cal. blanks) brought in by the local Guard - especially after their annual training exercises in the Black Hills. I don't reload myself, but Pacific Steel is more than happy to sell this brass to anyone who wants it.

    It would seem that the decision to render expended brass unusable is being made locally (and illegally?) by certain Guard and Regular Army units.

    I'm looking forward to reading more from the Examiner on this. If laws are being violated, a full accounting is needed.
