Shooting is like any other physical activity - endurance and proficiency build with practice. IMHO, you are practicing "enough" when your practice enables you to attain your desired level of proficiency. You are practicing "too much" when your performance starts to drop off - at that point, you are just reinforcing poor performance.

I think this would depend on several factors. First, like others have said the individual shooter. Second, how quickly do you shoot X amount of rounds. Many, many moons ago I would go and shoot four hundred rounds a weekend once or twice a month. (I was reloading then.) However, this was at an outdoor range I was a member of and we would spend all morning there haning out, shooting, talking to others, etc. So the actual shooting was spread out over a fairly long period of time. I wasn't on the clock and trying to get my shooting done before I had to pay for an extra hour of range time. And also, again like Bud and everyone has said, it depends on the gun and caliber. Shooting 200 rounds of standard pressure .38 is a lot different that shooting 200 of .44 Mag.

Relax... it's supposed to be _fun_ :)
If I'm going to shoot for groups, I do so when I first get to the range. Take a break. Even 5 minutes helps. Take a friend to the range with you, so that you have someone to talk to. Most of the rest of the shooting I do is regular 'ol plinking. .22 spinners, empty shotgun hulls, potatoes...
I put between 200-400 rounds down during a normal range trip, usually 3 hours or so. Over half of that is .22lr. I've got 5 10rd mags for my Buckmark... doesn't take long to empty them :)
Liberty is an inherently offensive lifestyle. Living in a free society guarantees that each one of us will see our most cherished principles and beliefs questioned and in some cases mocked. It's worth it.
