Best Answer

When you fire most guns, the gun will eject the brass cartridge the holds the bullet, gun powder, and primer. The firing pin of the gun hits the primer at the base of the cartridge, which ignites the gun powder and fires the bullet. As the explosion occurs and the bullet leaves the barrel of gun, the mechanism of the gun uses the explosion's energy to eject the now empty brass cartridge.

'Policing the brass' means to pick up the spent cartridges after your done firing.
