>spraypaint all your rounds with brass spray
son, we have rules here.
thats why you degauss them you dipshit
top off your mags with two brass cartridges and use a brass catcher. or play dumb and ask them why. make them admit they are greedy boomers. or alternately just ust brass, but smear them all in your own shit.
>Hey man, what ammo you running?
>I wouldn't worry about it, they're shitty rounds.
whats that? sounds like a place for gay people
Why do they not like steel casings again? Was it because they're harder to reload or they believe they're some kind of armor piercing round?
Harder on reloading equipment than brass
Ahh alright, thanks.
that's not it at all, retard.
Most ranges don't allow steel casings because its harder to detect armor piercing rounds which are usually magnetic. Allowing steel cased which is magnetic might allow some AP rounds to slip through which might void the ranges Insurance or any claims for damage they might incur from you firing AP out the back wall.
That is 100% the only reason any range ever has banned steel case ammo.
I thought that lead was magnetic
you are the dumbest person posting on this board right now. I'm not kidding.
wrong, I am
Also in Commiefornia, they have tricked people into thinking steel cased ammo in the woods will cause firesfrom sparks caused by hitting rocks.
I love spreading this rumor at the range because I end up hearing about it later from one of my coworkers who visits the range at a different time. He's always pissing and moaning about the place but never goes anywhere else.
>That is 100% the only reason any range ever has banned steel case ammo.
This is false because I own a range and I do not allow steel case ammo because we can't reload or sell the casings. This is the first time I've ever heard of this "muh ap rounds" bullshit sounds like fuddlore cope for your local range being greedy. Yes, I am greedy. Don't like it? Get your own range it's what I did.
>Don't like it? Get your own range it's what I did.
>just to repeat the cycle of greed
This, outdoor and indoor range both had employees tell me this was the main reason. Indoor also doesn't allow ap or greentip because it chews up their backstops more even if they do come in brass.
>HOW DO THEY WORK
then you're narrowing you're customer base because you don't want to spend $50 on a magnet from amazon.
Why not just make a proper wall, loser gay? Small arms can't penetrate that much no matter what you make the bullet out of.
Are you under the impression that I am in charge nationally of all firing ranges policies, you absolutely retarded gay?
I never said I agree with them, I just said that's why they do it.
Holy shit you are stupid.
the excuse my range uses is that steel case ammo "can" spark like a flint steel if it hits the ground hard enough and ignite unburnt powder blah blah blah
I'm sure he heard about that from a guy whose friend said it happened to his uncle in the 80s, range fudds are so fucking retarded
"You sayin there's loose gunpowder around here? What kind of shit show are you running with a fire hazard like that?"
>the range has rules, but no RSO's to enforce them
>just a toll free number to report violations
full video of this fucking retard?
never even noticed the skin tone. of fucking course. wish the range officer there kicked his ass out immediately
Yeah that's why I don't shoot at the range in Pawnee, just off the side of the road instead. There's bullet pockmarks in the cinderblock shitter there.
>dont have to deal with morons/white trash magdumping Ak pistols
This, trashy plebs who think saving a penny per round is worth the absolute dogshit they buy have no place among civilized folk. The need to save actually filters the nogs and tards too like you said which is a plus
Ruralite, never shot at a range before, always just gone to fields, woods, etc. Are ranges like known for being shitty and annoying? Or are the shitty ones just a minority?
Does Russian steel 9 and 5.56 even work properly? 7.62x39 obviously does, I'd assume 5.45 does too, but .45 doesn't even cycle. I know they make 9x39 and 54r steel too.
i brass plate my steel casings
>Are steel casings alright?
Yep no steel core though
>I wanna keep my brass!
Alright we don't care
>Can I get brass from the ones down range
Use the broom to pull it back to yourself and push the ones you don't want back down range
Many such conversations nothing is better than stun locking a boomer when he's getting argumentative about his brass and we say we don't care if he picks it up we honeslty prefer you do
doesn't matter as much now since steelcae is only like 5% cheaper than brass.
>no automatic weapons fire under the age of 18
>don't bring non-members unless you are directly related to them
>don't handle guns when people are down range
>if you are doing something really stupid, that's okay! but make sure you're the only person at the range (lock the front gate)
>clean up after yourself. throw away or take with you everything you brought, including brass (they don't care if you keep it but you have to pick it up)
>don't intentionally shoot at rocks
>don't shoot glass
>don't shoot clay pigeons unless you're using a shotgun at the trap range (I don't really get this rule, but maybe they make a big mess if everyone does it)
anyway it's pretty based
Once went to check out a range near me only for them to tell me they didn't allow any FMJ on site, had an aneurysm and went home
