How often do you actually get to go out and shoot and when you do, how many rnds do you normally fire. I shoot everyday (have range in back field) and go threw probably 1 oto 2000rnds a month

Bi-weekly question.

I shoot as much as I can, when I can afford it, and a pretty fair amount when I do.

Never less than 3 times a month, more during the cooler months here, usually take a minimum of 4 rifles and 4 handguns.

Run through at least 100 rounds per handgun, more for the 9MMs and .22s.

Burn up 400-500 rounds for the ARs, 20 rounds each for hunting rifles. Sometimes I take the clay pigeon thrower and burn a couple boxes of shells and a case of pigeons.

As often as I can.

Once a week if work and commitments permit. Usually more like 2 to 3 times a month. I try to take at least 2 rifles and 1 or 2 handguns each time. Probably shoot 500-1000 rounds a month.

Alot less than I used to. Cant let ammo cut into the house repair fund.
Link Posted: 8/20/2004 5:40:05 PM EDT
Not often enough. Many problems can be traced to inadequate range time.

Once a week, maybe once every two weeks.

About 500 rounds maybe more per the weekend.

Just find it hard not to stay fine tuned........ don't know why.

Yep! Same here!
If it rains tonight (and the weather forecast says it will) I'll be shooting Monday.

Heh, I just might do both days.

Probably about once a month to 6 weeks. Maybe 500-1000 rds per trip.
Link Posted: 8/20/2004 6:39:35 PM EDT
Depending upon what I am working on at the range, it can vary accordingly.

600 .45 acp /Super (three / four times a week)
200 7.62 (weekly)
50 8.6 (a couple time a week)
25 12.7 (a couple times a week)

Usually 3 or 4 times a month with anywhere from a couple hundred to a couple thousand rounds per trip. I've got 12 guns ready to go for tomorrow and will shoot at least 500 rounds of 9mm through the MAC10. Probably shoot about 900 rounds total, all centerfire.

Jeep29, is that a full auto mac or semi? And what does IBTL mean?

Full Auto and "In Before The Lock". There is a duplicate thread on this so someone is gonna get locked.

About once every 2-3 months.
Link Posted: 8/20/2004 8:53:02 PM EDT
I try to get out once a week, although we have worked a lot of O T on the weekends this summer where I work so, I get out when I can

allot less, since my brother moved away. we would varmint blast weekly and sturgon fish, man those were good times. 100 to 500 rounds total, 50 or so .223, shitloads out of the 10/22 and 100 rounds of 9mm shooting carp, i love to see water fly

Ive push paper couple of time this summer, not much fun since all of my weapon are balls on. But I have found indoor range shooting fun, I have a 9mm carbine thats a blast to push paper, and I practice burst shooting with my M40 with full size man targets

About once a month, not counting range days for the two agencies I work for. A couple hundred rounds , max, per trip. Most times a lot less.Simply no time to get out more, nor could I afford the multi-thousand round per month expenditure that some people here mention.
Link Posted: 8/20/2004 10:02:04 PM EDT
It's been about 2 months since I went last. It's too dang hot and humid right now. I'm looking forward to the fall when I can get out more often. Winters here are great for shooting. No bugs and cool weather.
Link Posted: 8/20/2004 10:07:38 PM EDT
I load my ammo the whole day before and go waste it all the next day....

my wife/my dad/mom always tell me why I got to shoot so much/wasting my time loading and shootin' it all the next day...I tell them bullets and ammo is meant to be shot and not meant to be put in storage for a couple of decades.
Link Posted: 8/20/2004 10:14:27 PM EDT
Atleast once every two weeks, ~200 AR rounds, ~50 9 mil rounds.
Link Posted: 8/20/2004 10:23:40 PM EDT
once every month or once every two months, on a typical trip I shoot:

*Ruger PC9 9mm carbine - 200 rds

*Chinese SKS - 100 - 200 rds

*1911 - 100 rds

Not enough. I do try to make the high power rifle shoot every month but sometimes thats the only time I make it to the range that month. Being out on the road most of the week, its hard to get out and shoot as much as I would like.
Link Posted: 8/21/2004 2:55:58 AM EDT
I only go shooting about once a month for about an hour, if I'm lucky. As soon as I turn 18 (January), That's gonna change.

200 rounds 7.62 NATO
200 9x19mm
50-100 9x18mm Makarov
100 7.62x39mm

I won't shoot all this myself, usually I'll bring a friend with me.
Link Posted: 8/21/2004 3:14:09 AM EDT
i get to the range whenever i can. depends on what i feel like shooting that day.
Link Posted: 8/21/2004 3:44:33 AM EDT

I generally shoot every two weeks or so. I don't shoot a ton of rounds when I go to the range, though - usually 100-200. I practice drawing and firing my CW, drawing and firing from an OWB holster (as if I am on duty), and shooting my rifles for groups, usually.

Link Posted: 8/21/2004 5:20:10 PM EDT
daily. I can shoot out to 350 yds in the backyard. My round count depends on what kind of day I had at work...Good day, I'll pop off between 15 and 20 rds with either my carry pistol or SHTF rifles, just to ensure I'm staying familiar with 'em. Bad day? It'll sound like WW-friggin-III, complete with tracers, gas cans essplodin', and my war cry of "I HATE MY F@#^% JOB!

My bi-monthly ammo expenditures are somewhere in the neighborhood of:
1K .223
1K .308
300 .45
300 9mm
2K .22
3 Coleman propane tanks
