I have mentioned before, we go to a public range 2-3 times a year. It's about 40 miles from me, so not too bad. They have covered firing lines and shooting benches. It is not free, but there is a donation box, no set fee. Before it was improved with the benches, etc., I used to come home with twice as much brass as I shot.
I shoot C&B revolvers, conversions and some modern stuff. Now, with the concrete floor, there isn't as much brass laying around....mostly 22s and steel cased mil-surp. Richard has an ideal set-up, as does Scooby. My property is pretty hilly, but not bad as far as handguns go. I can get about 80 yards for rifles though.
