Don't be so passive next time. Tell them that their brass is beating up your equipment. Ask to swap lanes, this solves the problem.

Everyone today is too meek to speak out. Stand up damnit!


And if resolve cannot be reached through cordiality, involve range personnel.

The only public range I visit has benches divided by walls. 25 lanes. Your brass either goes back or forward.

This makes me not wan to go to more well known ranges man. I'm always hearing negative things about them or some of the people who go to them.

Just my thoughts, but if the RSO or the people shooting off their autos don't feel like taking your request seriously, I'd probably look for a smaller less known range. The one I use don't usually have people there to often. It's also outside and it is winter right now.

All-in-all, I hope you can work your range issues out.

That's not good. I go shooting at a State run shooting range not far from here that has chickwire put up between every other shooting position just for that reason. It's a simple fix and it only makes good sense. Just to be sure that I don't annoy the other shooters around me I always use a brass catcher too except maybe when I'm shooting .22's. My Mini-14 tries to toss the spent brass into the next county.

On a slightly funny note, not too long ago when I was shooting my 10/22 I tossed some spent brass up and down the back of my wife's hip-hugger jeans who was shooting right next to me. It made her do the funny dance.

hate to sound like an @$$hole here, but, REALLY!?!? Its the nature of the beast. If your to the right of somebody, brass is going to be flying your way. Thats how it is! Dont like it? go home!

Those guys were there to do the same exact thing as you, let the lead and brass FLY and have a good time.

Often i have drawn the spot to the right and have yet to allow flying brass or muzzle blast deter me. I understand its the name of the game. I use it as a challenge to up my marksmanship game. Tight groups amongst distractions.


When i draw the bench to the left and my brass is flying at another shooter i usually say something to the effect of "Sorry bro, This thing really chucks the brass." The response is normally, "no prob."

When you go to a public range you have to deal with.......the public.

The portable shooting screen sounds like a great idea. Other than that, or swapping spots, get over it.

Personally, I don't shoot with people I don't know. It is too damn dangerous. I stopped going to public ranges because I decided I was going to shoot the next bastage that pointed a gun at me, no questions asked, and I am too pretty to go to prison.

The range I go to frequently has some portable "brass screens" available on the rifle range. If you are shooting a gun that ejects brass you place one of the screens to prevent it from hitting the shooter to the right. The pistol range has a screen between each shooting station. 1/4 inch hardware cloth.

I am working on making a brass catcher to catch the brass from my guns and deposit it into an ammo can. I will still ask other shooters for their brass though, politely. If I can't use it to reload I will either stockpile it for the future guns or recycle it.

Empty Crown Royal bags and double sided velcro. Offer to help them install it on their rifles. It has worked for me in the past.

Other idea, I own a modern BAR in .270, and it is a LH model. If the guy to my left is being a d!ck, the mini goes in it's case, and I "return fire". They usually get the point.

brass in the face!

my range has partitions between each shooting position i don't think i have ever had that experience but if i did i would suggest they should consider your position and MOVE as a slap in the face would offend!!

The range i attend has screens to bolt to the bench which prevents brass chucking. The real issue are the jerks with 16" 308 ar15s with a compensator. The concussion from those things is tooth jarring for 3 benches left and right.

In the summer when those tards are out i take my m44 mosin and return fire heh. I usually wait till they are making scope adjustments to crank a few off. I really need to get a compensator for that thing...
