Every other Saturday I shoot 200-300 rounds with one of my "black rifles" and 100-200 rounds in my 45ACP pistol. Twice each month I shoot 100-200 rounds in my carry pistol and another 100-200 rounds in my "fun" guns. Two or three times each month I shoot at local rifle and/or pistol match so thats another 200 rounds or so. Lets see thats about 600 rounds in my rifles and about 1,000 rounds in my handguns on an average month.

I probably average 1200 rounds a month combined rifle and pistol. Depending on the weather, it's usually more pistol rounds.

0! Yes, ZERO! That's none! The local range I had been going to has been closed for a few months. Also, I can't get the bolt on my new AR-15 to close over the top of a magazine. Because of that, I don't feel like driving the 102 miles to my usual range. It just isn't worth it to only fire my 22LR rifle when I know that I have an AR-15 at home that I might be able to one day figure-out how to fix. It sucks not having somewhere local to shoot. I'm almost to the point of buying an airgun. I would buy one if I had a basement to shoot it in. For that matter, if I had a basement, I've got enough scrap 2" thick iron plates to make a nice backstop. A better question would be how many rounds do you WANT to shoot per month? My answer would be about 3000. 100 rounds per day sounds about right. 50 pistol rounds (assuming I owned one), and 50 223 rounds would be great. I can dream...

Well, I shoot in two IHMSA pistol matches, 80 rounds in one match (7BR and .357) and 40 rounds in the other (.22), so with practice I shoot between 200-250 round just for that. I try to get out with my .45 or a rifle at least once a month, so there's another 100 minimum. I just got my first AR, so I went through about 500 rounds with it the first month wringing it out. Now I'm handloading for it, so I'll try to get at least 100 a month through it (precision shooter). Apparently I'm a piker compared to most of you. [sniper]

About 300 rds of .22LR. Wish it was more than that, but I just don't have the money [:(]

You guys must have big pocket book. 1200 rounds a month sheesh.

60 rounds every week = ~250rds. a month. I'm on a budget, but a 1000 round can of reman. will last me quite a while. Jewbroni~

1500 9mm, all loaded on a 650. Using only 4.7 gr of 231 and a 115 gr JHP per, it's pretty cheap.

I shoot between 60 and 80 rounds a week from my Bushmaster. Its been a awhile since I have touched my Glocks. My shooting pattern Kinda goes like this. Winter I shoot alot in doors so those are handgun days. With its getting warmer I spend more time outside so that when I head on over to the rifle range. Ussually 60 to 80 rounds slow fire for practice, On hand gun day ussually 150 rounds a week. Six
