    I don't get to shoot nearly as much as I would like to, but I do try to get out at least every couple of months and put out a few hundred rounds each time.

    We have one 15 minutes away if we want to go indoor, I'm glad I have friends who farm, a friend of ours is less than 5 minutes down the road, 11 acres, nice flat spot with a hill to form a natural backstop.

    Thumbs up

    I shoot about once a month when possible (I am at college w/o even my carry gun ) and shoot about 150 rounds or so each trip of mixed ammo, Last time it was 43 rounds (yes odd number because of a new mag to fill and new carry ammo) of .380, 80 (Mixed 9 GD, 11 UMC and 50 WWB) of .40 and about 25 rounds from 2 different .22 rifles.

    I try to shoot my carry gun at least one time a week. I shoot from 100 to 200 rounds a trip. In the summer I shoot more than that and I of course shoot my other firearms a lot as well.

    A lot more in warmer weather.

    Two to three time a week. About 100-150 rounds each time. About one third is in whatever carry gun I'm using at the time.

    I go to the range (fortunately 2 minutes from where I work) 2-4 times a week for an hour or two. It's good to practice a lot, since it's a perishable skill, and besides, I usually feel like blowing off steam after a long day at the office, and what better way than by shooting off a few hundred rounds?!

    I try to shoot once a week but during tax season, I can't always make it.

    Some people have an easier time getting to the range than others. I remember a couple of years ago, I took a competition speed shooting class from Scott Warren.

    For those who don't know him, he is (or was - he may have retired by now) a senior firearms trainer with the FBI Hostage Rescue Team.

    He said his typical week was at the range every weekday shooting on average around 350 rounds a day.

    He said, and I quote, "I've got the best job in the world".

    Sigh! I can only dream of that kind of work!

    I shoot an IDPA match every 2nd and 4th Thursday. I also shoot an IPSC match every 4th Saturday. Ammo is cheep at walmart.
