    Question How many rounds did you shoot in 2008?

    Just as the title says. Let's see who shoots here.

    I shot 18000 rounds of .45 ACP last year and a few 9mm and .357 when I played with borrowed guns.

    Yeah I know it's kinda hard to come up with high numbers even if I make my own bullets. My shooting budget feels the economy.

    Please do not include air rifles, paint balls, sling shots, dry fire practice in the poll. Thanks.
    I carry a gun cause I can't carry a cop.

    I shot well over 30,000 rounds. How do I know that?
    I shot 6 sleeves of primers. Since a sleeve is 5000 to a box, that is 6 boxes that I went through. Mostly large pistol and large rifle.Now that I think of it, I went through 400 .50 BMG primers too.

    As for the various guns of friends and students that I tried...I have no idea but its alot.
    I would rather stand against the cannons of the wicked than against the prayers of the righteous.

    I shot in the 3k range most of that was 40 cal. I would love to shoot more but $$ is tight right now for some reason.
    I am hoping to start reloading in the next month or two, not to save money but rather to be able to shoot more.

    I try to shoot every weekend. Not so much since the move to Gilbert, but figure 200 rds of .40 cal 50 - 100 of .45 some 308 per visit. It really starts to add up. I did not and wont even try to include .22.

    Only 750 rounds, but not bad for purchasing the gun on 12-22-08, I'm working on getting my count up for 2009

    I shot between 8,000-10,000. Not 100% sure as I know I fired off 8,500 rounds that I loaded for matches and practice. The unknown is the amount of factory ammo I ripped through the guns just "playing around".

    I shot about 7000. About 1500 of that was .22, about 500 was .30 Carbine and the rest was mixed between 9mm and .45 ACP.
