Brass, brass and more brass

There are two retired policemen that come to our gun club meetings. They look like professional wrestlers so I made them club Range Officers. Bill and Rick asked me if I reload and did I want some brass. The answers were yes and yes. Last week they gave me two five gallon buckets of brass. One was mixed once-fired rifle brass in .243 Win., .30-06 and .30-30 and it filled three large plastic coffee containers. The next bucket was filled with nickel brass in .38 Special and .357 Magnum. I filled five large coffee containers with .38 Special brass and one of .357 Magnum brass. Looks like a lifetime supply.

The guys said they have more brass and will bring it to me. All the best...
Gil

Good for you. Brass is now becoming very expensive.

"The gun has been called the great equalizer, meaning that a small person with a gun is equal to a large person, but it is a great equalizer in another way, too. It insures that the people are the equal of their government whenever that government forgets that it is servant and not master of the governed." - 40th President of the United States Ronald Reagan 1911-2004
