Better yet, get a membership at the Atascadero range, its cheaper over the long run and for students you get over half off!

The only draw back is the furthest you can shoot is 200yards.

My Ruger has a brass catcher mainly because I'm reloading my brasss and I don't want to start scurrying around looking for it. The RO at Chabot likes to come by and ask if my brass catcher contraption is a belt fed device. He laughs and walks away!

Seriously though, nobody's tossing brass at anyone intentionally.
FALs, FNCs and SVD's are the same.

Seriously. A year ago I went to the range and this guy showered me with brass from his mini14. After a few shots I stood up and stopped shooting. I had three pretty obvious marks on my face where the brass hit me. One got me on the side of the nose and left a red halo on my nose for a few days. The part that hit me was the sharp opening where the bullet goes.
