You make sense.
There is an attendant who picks them up promptly as we shoot them.
He may also try to pick them up before we step on them.

it actually is a nice range despite the owners finicky nature at times, i have caught him in better moods when he sent me home with some unused targets....
I specifically DO NOT use American ammo because it is pretty anemic. With so much litigation pending in the USA the ammo companies have downloaded all rounds which may have been around for a while. Such as 30-06, .45acp, 6.5x55, 8mm mauser. Ever shoot European 8mm or 6.5x55? It's hotter than heck!

Indoor range ends up with unburned powder blanketing area forward of shooters- have swept enough of it up at end of the day. Likely carpet needed vacuuming. A spark flipping into powder in the carpet will get you into the Look Ma No Eyebrows club. His range, his rules, but nothing wrong with S&B. Might as well ban Colt's because a Colt set his carpet on fire.

Hint- yer cheap rug caught on fire because you were too cheap/ lazy to suck up the black stuff laying on it.

And again he chimes in with nothing but ball blistering logic I rarely get to hear so much sense!

The carpet MUST be properly groomed people; the 70's are OVER!

The carpet excuse was probably from someone that did not know the facts. I have had S&B 9mm rejected because it was magnetic. Steel core bullets can pierce the armor used to contain the rounds on an indoor range. If it is magnetic it is not permitted on a lot of indoor ranges. The range I go to scans all ammo with a magnet.

I think one of the reasons indoor ranges use carpeting, is to reduce noise. (if not the main reason)
