I posted a thread about yesterday being my first full day helping out at a local range. It was 10 hours of pure fun.
I mainly helped out on the range for 2 classes that were taught yesterday. I figured it up today and it turns out that I was there on the range while 2000+ rounds were fired yesterday. All calibers from .22lr, .380, 9mm, .40, .45ACP, .45GAP, .357 magnum, .38 special, .357SIG, you name it, I probably saw someone in one of the classes firing it.
When I got home I smelled very strongly of burnt gunpowder. My wife and kids remarked on it in fact. So, I went upstairs, threw all my clothes in the hamper and took a long shower.
Today I was doing my laundry, and as is my habit I was checking my pockets before dumping each pair of pants into the washing machine. When I go to the pair of 5.11 cargo pants I was wearing on the range yesterday, I found in the lower leg cargo pockets the following: 2 .45ACP brass, one 9mm brass, 3 .40S&W brass and a .22lr brass. I did not put them there. They must have landed there and I did not realize it at the time.
I can't tell you how many empty brass hit me yesterday. Seemed like every time I stopped moving I got hit by a piece of brass from someone. It was still more fun than I can tell you. I can't wait till next time.
