    Aside from the traditional Military pistol and rifle training, I was going to the range every 2-3 weeks (100-200 rounds per visit). That was until ammo became endangered. I haven't shot my sidearm in over 3 months now.

    I have kept up muscle memory drills, and drawing from holster.

    I hit the range once every 6-8 weeks. It's not enough, and I'm disappointed in myself for not shooting more. The price and availability of ammo has made it more difficult. Maybe I should look into reloading?

    I've also considered getting an airsoft handgun, matching my regular carry, and setting up a regular "shoot each other" day with a small group. Run some scenarios, etc.

    I practice at the range at least weekly. I dry fire at home 2 -4 times a week and I shoot IDPA and USPSA at least 1 each per month( plus the occasional carbine or 3 gun match). Even with all this "practice", my age is winning! I have broken the curve and on the back side. Just more proof that the older you get, the more you have to put into it to say even.

    Right now I am only shooting what I can replace or reload. This month that has meant two outings to the range in two weeks, but I'll have to wait until I find some more ammo.
