Where is the best place to get brass? I have went to common places that people shoot but I would like to get more bulk for cheaper or next to nothing rather then buying it on the Internet?

What kind of brass. I usually just pick mine up. At Dougs or Impact you can usually end up with more than you brought just by cleaning up your lane. If yourclever you can just look for the dirtiest lane. Most of the newer ranges are so new and clean you usually only have your brass to choose from. Cheapest I see it sold at ranges is Discount Guns and Ammo 2 at about $30 per 1000 of 9mm.

Is 13 cents apiece too much?
This site has 1000 deprimed and cleaned .45 auto for $129 with free shipping right now.

I guess it depends upon how much your time is worth.

The best place to get brass is off the floor or ground around your shooting station right after you've shot some new factory loads, IMO. Buy a couple cases of ammo, shoot it up, pick up the brass. Voila! 2000 cases, waiting to be cleaned and reloaded.

Carry guns are like work trucks: who cares if they get beat up a little as long as they work when you need them to.

I always pick up what's laying around. But I only reload for my .308

On a side note since I don't reload for my pistol if anyone has some brass from not so common cartridges (rifle or pistol) they don't really want or need I will take 1 for my collection and can buy it or trade for brass I have. And I don't mean 1 for 1 I'll give you a fair amount.
