How do you capture your brass for reloading
Given the uncertainty of ammo supplies lately, I am considering saving empty brass when I shoot in case I decide to get into reloading. Is there a way to ensure that you capture all of your empty cases while shooting to prevent others from taking them or if you go to a range where they don't let you pick up brass you shoot off the ground?
Re: How do you capture your brass for reloading
All I have around me are indoor ranges, so that's all I can talk about. One of the smaller ranges I frequent will often let me get on the far right sided lane (so I have a wall and corner right where all my brass goes) upon request, provided it's not incredibly busy and I'm willing to wait for that lane to free up. Also, many times people don't clean up their brass when they're done shooting, so I spend the first few minutes picking up all the brass I've just inherited. In addition, if people in the lane next to me are cleaning up after themselves, I often ask them to sweep all their brass into my lane instead of out onto the range. Needless to say, I often leave the range with a lot more brass that I came with, so the few cases that fly away and are lost are no big deal.
I have no experience with ranges that won't let you pick up brass. I will say though that if a particular range won't even let you pick up YOUR OWN brass (I've heard of some), then find another range.
