Dude walking around stealing everyones brass was trying to tell us we were not able to shoot tannerite. Could not shoot any ammo that attracts to a magnet. No rapid firing. No AR's (cops would be by any minute to confiscate them). The guy was a very not fun person today. I was not pleased. It ruined my range trip. I would rather pay to go to a range than deal with people telling me what to do.

Glad I don't have that problem, I go shooting at the old strip mines; no one would be brave enough to go up and confront people with AR's and AK's in a place as sketchy as it is.

Who was this dude?

Why didn't you pee on him?

Public land, or public range?

Was the dude an official of the state or feds? if not tell him to fuck off.

Why didn't you just tell him to MYOB and go pound sand elsewhere?

Unless you are an exempt LEO, California plus guns never equals fun. At best it's a dry hump.
Edit to add: I hate brass buzzards and go out of my way to keep them from brass.

A simple fuck off usually works in these situations.

Going around picking up other peoples brass, sounds like a neckbeard.

Dude was stealing your brass?

That is a very strange story. I have never had anything even remotely like that happen to me, nor would it.

You didn't shoot at his feet and make him dance like a monkey?
Link Posted: 1/17/2015 9:19:33 PM EST
This is why you carry a little tranquilizer gun IWB and let him wake up in a bush several hours later.
Link Posted: 1/17/2015 9:22:05 PM EST
You're out shooting on public land, someone else tells you what to do, and you listen to the guy?

Why didn't you tell him to go get fucked, or get back in your vehicle and find another spot to shoot at?

Fuck that guy. Should have pissed on his leg.

People like this blow my mind. I have never met anyone like this and I shoot on public ranges 99% of the time.
If someone came over and picked up my brass I would lose my shit, and I don't even reload.
Link Posted: 1/17/2015 9:23:33 PM EST
The best places are GPS coordinates and require 4wd to make it out there
Link Posted: 1/17/2015 9:23:36 PM EST
I know of spots like that and make a point of never going there.
Go find a spot that been logged with some friends and do what you want.

I would have told him to fuck off and give me back my brass.

Did you confirm if he had any authority, and if not tell him to FOAD?

if that was on public land, you're doing it wrong.

if another human being is within eyeshot on BLM or NF land, you are officially a pussy who is too scared or lazy to find your own piece of ground. you want to be somewhere like this...



Link Posted: 1/17/2015 9:26:23 PM EST
Whenever someone tries to steal my brass I pull out my HK91 and hit them in the head a few times with the brass, if they are still conscious, they get the hint.

Seriously, where I shoot someone/everyone else would of ran the guy off, at gun point if need be.

Don't forget to take a condom out, then throw both it and the wrapper where he'll see it when he wakes up.

BLM Land? Hodge Rd.? Everywhere to shoot sucks anywhere south of Kern Co.
Link Posted: 1/17/2015 9:27:05 PM EST
Where was this? I'd love to find some public land to get a bit more active with my shooting. The local range is nice, but :rules:

Do people really steal your brass as it hits the ground at public ranges? Seems like a good way to get hurt.

yes like ppl that just hang out at the range all day with gloves on or a butterfly net and try to catch the brass as your gun kicks it out. those people are the worse.

Were your ARs compliant, OP? If so I would have told the dude to fuck off. If not,well, he seems to be the type to drop a dime so discretion may be the better part of valor in that case.....but I'm sure they were

sounds like if he pulled an AR out the cops would have been by any minute to confiscate it so he probably was afraid to get one out.

very serious, you've never been to a public range where theres people that arent even shooting? and they're just walking around picking up brass off the ground and grabbing it as people shoot it, sometimes even deploying children to do it.
Link Posted: 1/17/2015 9:47:37 PM EST
anyone else wonder why the OP hasn't posted again?

I don't think public land means what you think it does.

Did you mean a public range?

Public range = tell them to fuck off and call someone that actually has some authority.

Public land = why are you near me?

You must be doing something wrong. Did you wear a pink polo shirt or something?

Around here most people run around collecting my brass, then return them with a "here is your brass sir."

Yep, must be the pink polo shirt...
Link Posted: 1/17/2015 9:59:37 PM EST
i see what you did there OP
Link Posted: 1/17/2015 10:06:43 PM EST
just for the record, I pick up lots of free brass at the free public range where I often shoot. When others are there, I ask if they
reload and reuse their brass cases. if yes, thanks much, and I move on. If no, I offer to police up the area when they are done.
Folks there are almost always nice and are glad to offer up the empties. Many time I have cleaned up the area and then given
the brass to somebody I just met who is starting to reload. I have plenty, and I have time to clean it up. I just dont want to see it
wasted and thrown away. some people even pick up their own brass and bring it to me. Its a good place to shoot with good
people for the most part.
I have met quite a few good folks there, seen them time and again. Shooters are often the best of people.

OP, it the mouthy guy is not some kind of official there, he should be told to piss off. remember not to smile.
