    I try to shoot every other week. Now that I am waiting on my AA conversion kit for my G19 I think I will be shooting even more. Maybe twice a week. .22 is good practice, same platform as my carry gun, .22 so there WILL BE malfunctions so I can practice clearing drills. Sounds like a plan to me.

    Usually 100 rounds monthly through the primary carry (G19) and then 50 rounds through either a 1911 or her keep-it-beside-the-bed Model 10. Thank goodness for indoor ranges.

    Every other week for me. I usually put at least 200 rounds downrange each visit. Usually split between my carry weapon(G27) and my class taking weapon(Sig .40). Just added a G17 so now I shoot 9mm also.

    Usually, once per week... sometimes more.

    Usually 200rds of 9mm thru the carry gun, 10-15 slugs, and maybe another gun or two I brought for fun.

    2 to 4 times a month. Usually 100 to 200 of .45 rounds a trip. Now that I've got a Browning Bullseye .22 That will increase by at least 50 to 100 .22's per trip. I reload .45's to afford it!

    I generally shoot once a week, sometimes more. 200 rounds through the current carry gun and 50-100 rounds through whatever else I take.

    I try to make it every other week or whenever I can make an excuse. Lately it's been getting closer to once a month.

    Most weekends I'll get out to my home range for a bit. Could be putting 10 rounds downrange, could be 200. Could be long-gun, could be handgun.

    My wife and I practice 2 - 3X each week. We don't go to movies or shows, eat out only on occasion and really don't have any other expensive hobbies.

    We've shot thousands of rounds of gun show ammo -- new and reload -- without incident. We shoot .22/.38/.357/9mm and .45, though not all every visit.

    It's relaxing, builds skills and doesn't break the bank.

    Cheers!
