I'm thinking the re-loaders have at it like strippers picking up singles off the stage at the end of the song...

He can have up to 5 guests for free and I get members rates on ammo and shooting supplies if I need them. I am also on his short list of people he invites to club events, and my boys can usually come along as well.

I would honestly like to build something to minimize the noise from my shooting at home. I really don't want to piss off the neighbors. Does anybody have any ideas as to how to contain the noise at home range? I have considered building a sort of tunnel to shoot through with sound absorption material on the walls/ceiling for this but so far I haven't.
We had that problem too for a time. I don't know about anything you can build but thanks to our wonderful economy, I seem to have Fridays off...among other days...so we try to get out there while the neighbors are still at work

My range they pick it up and recycle it. Reloaders or otherwise. Cali. law requires that they pick it up off the ground because the burnt powder residue within the spent cases is supposed to be bad for the enviorment. Thats what they've told me but I just don't exactly know about that. I pick up my own brass. I know keeping the brass picked up does somewhat piss them off. They also harvest the lead out of the berms once in awhile and recycle it for a profit.

We live on property as well. I have berms setup at 35y and 90y from my back deck/patio. The picnic table makes a great shooting bench.

I saw some pictures of a nice range in Germany that had sections of the big plastic corrugated culverts with foam on the inside for the rifle shooting.

I work from home so I do most of my shooting during the work week, never shoot on Saturday or Sunday mornings, all of that. I would just like to do something to contain the noise a little better. I have considered building an underground indoor range but that would only be practical for short distance in my case. Plus lighting and ventilation it would be a big project. Maybe someday!
