Salvager Larry McCullough packs up his prize find - 300lbs. of 50mm brass shell casings - on the Marine bombing range next to Slab City in the Chocolate Mountains. McCullough has been salvaging brass and aluminum from bombs and shell casing in the range for the last 25 years. Asked if he felt this was dangerous work, he replied, "Well they bomb nearly every day, but I feel I know their routine. Besides this is good for them, me cleaning up all of this junk." He added, "Whoa, tonight I hit the motherload." Tonight's find will net him somewhere close to a thousand dollars.
