Just wondering...

It has been at least 6 months since I have been shooting....

I hate to admit it, but I have a new upper from JTAC and a G21 I got in Febuary I still have not shot yet.....

Once a week now that its getting warmer.
Link Posted: 4/9/2006 3:34:35 PM EDT
A couple times a month. An all day event 6 times a year. Used to be more, but with increased pay comes increased responsibilty.
Link Posted: 4/9/2006 3:35:21 PM EDT
Wake up, step outside and shoot...So everyday.
Link Posted: 4/9/2006 3:35:47 PM EDT
I used to go once a week. Now its more like twice a year
Link Posted: 4/9/2006 3:36:29 PM EDT
Couple of times a month. When I have a little more time, I wind up two or three times a week out there.
Link Posted: 4/9/2006 3:38:31 PM EDT
Have not been for a month, i like to go every two weeks or so.
Link Posted: 4/9/2006 3:42:51 PM EDT
As much as I can, which is to say, not as often as I'd like.
Link Posted: 4/9/2006 3:42:57 PM EDT
Only about 3 times yearly.


But I shoot 3-4 times weekly.

My place is essentially surrounded by forest and I hike in it most days. I shoot different things every time. ARs, AKs, Glock. It does keep me in practice.

Winter is when I get most of my handgun practice. I shoot at twigs sticking out of the snow in the sides of hills. Good practice and I can see exactly where I am hitting. The best part is an unlimited supply of targets.

Once the bear come out of hibernation (about now) I start carrying bigger weaponry. And yeah, sometimes I may need it. I really have to remember to make a littel noise now and then or I slip into hunting/Marine mode and end up walking right up on things. Some big things with big teeth.

Sometimes I go to one of the local depressions and put targets up on stumps. Work my way thru the trees, shooting as I go. Or do rapid fire drills in the quarry nearby. Clay pigeons scattered up the side. Better with someone for a little competition.

If your using "going to the range" as an euphemism for sex. Count me in for every other day... Other wise.. Its been about 2 months since I have shot..

Me too

About every other month, but I do shoot at home more often. I just don't like shooting by myself, thats why I go to the range.

Link Posted: 4/9/2006 4:12:11 PM EDT
try to go once a week if not the trigger finger gets stupid
Link Posted: 4/9/2006 4:13:08 PM EDT
About once bi-weekly. Shot in a J.C. Garand shoot today out in Youngstown OH. Had a great time and a great slow prone stage. I love my M1 almost as much as my EBR. Okay maybe a little more even but don't tell my AR.

Link Posted: 4/9/2006 4:13:25 PM EDT
Three or more times a month.
Link Posted: 4/9/2006 4:14:26 PM EDT
Three or more times a month.
Link Posted: 4/9/2006 4:15:47 PM EDT
The indoor range about twice a week. I don't get out to the long distance range often enough.
Link Posted: 4/9/2006 4:17:21 PM EDT
luckly i have been able to go shooting everyday that i want to. so atleast 5 times a week for a hour atleast.
Link Posted: 4/9/2006 4:17:56 PM EDT
once every other week when i'm at home.

not at all when i'm at school
Link Posted: 4/9/2006 4:20:17 PM EDT
Try for at least once a week. Sometimes that won't work though. I just got back from a trip and it had been 3 weeks since I last shot.
Link Posted: 4/9/2006 4:21:17 PM EDT
Just got back actually.

Every week I go: rifle and pistol.
Link Posted: 4/9/2006 4:22:00 PM EDT
5.5 years since I've been shooting. I haven't had any free time while near the closest indoor range (~100 miles away) since then. I've still got five more 30 minute sessions there prepaid so I've really been trying to arrange free time there for a long time. The two rifle ranges within ~45 miles require a truck to get to and I don't own one so that's a no go. I just wish I had enough land to shoot on. I'd love to shoot several times a week.z
Link Posted: 4/9/2006 4:30:14 PM EDT
used to be twice a week when I lived in KS - now its once a month if I'm lucky...
Link Posted: 4/9/2006 4:33:01 PM EDT
Before my injuries(back, legs, right arm). I would go twice monthly. I have not been to the range in seven months.
Link Posted: 4/9/2006 4:33:26 PM EDT
4 or 5 times a month, more if I get something new during the month.
Link Posted: 4/9/2006 4:33:42 PM EDT
every other week or so
Link Posted: 4/9/2006 4:35:31 PM EDT
Lately I have I have trap shooting every Sunday, but it has been 3 months since I took out the rifles and pistols.
Link Posted: 4/9/2006 4:35:53 PM EDT
Every day on the way to and from work.
Link Posted: 4/9/2006 4:37:02 PM EDT
Once a week...
Link Posted: 4/9/2006 4:39:00 PM EDT
I try and shoot twice a week. Once a week minimum.
Link Posted: 4/9/2006 4:44:31 PM EDT
Less than some, more than most.
Link Posted: 4/9/2006 4:46:51 PM EDT
Likely at least twice a week.. (Sunday and Tuesdays). With the occaisional extra outing or two per week once in a while..
I'm looking fwd. to Sept. as my little one will start grade one and therefore be at skool all day instead of just 12:30-1500hrs in Sr. KinderG.
I can see spending lots more time shooting as I'm off werk lots during the week and I'll be kid free for most of the day!!!
Link Posted: 4/9/2006 5:00:56 PM EDT
not often enough....one drawback to my schedule.

Weekends are taken up with work/sleep, and the range I like to go to is closed on my days off that I would like to go. Other ranges I'm interested in are not close, and local indoors are too $$$.

No Expert
Link Posted: 4/9/2006 5:06:39 PM EDT
About once a week...usually on a sat or sun morning...occasionally on a friday night after work.
Link Posted: 4/9/2006 5:10:16 PM EDT
about twice ..... three times a week if im lucky
Link Posted: 4/9/2006 5:10:33 PM EDT
Twice a month. Once a month Jan-Mar, more due to how soon sunset is, than the cold.
Link Posted: 4/9/2006 5:23:59 PM EDT
I'm trying to go atleast once or twice a month.

If I went shooting as often as I got female action.........let's see, that was uhhhhh 1999? Or was it 2000? (and I'm not bad looking).

I shoot GUNS a lot more often than that. In fact, I should just forget about women and marry one of my guns...perhaps my HK or my new SIG. Haha.

What he said
Link Posted: 4/9/2006 5:44:41 PM EDT
Every week. This weekend I went both days . Unfortunately... that means that I used up 600 rounds. At least it was only my "range ammo" (cheap wolf). My SHTF stuff is different from the range stuff.
Link Posted: 4/9/2006 5:46:35 PM EDT
For work 4 times a year.
For fun about 4 times a year.
No range just shooting (crows, squirrels or sighting in rifles) about 4 times a year.
Hunting dove 4 to 10 times a year.
Quail, chukker or pheasant 4-15 times a year.
Deer or elk 7 to 15 times a year.
Pig 0 to 5 times a year.
Link Posted: 4/9/2006 6:01:51 PM EDT
I shoot about 3-4 times a month.

James
Link Posted: 4/9/2006 6:09:34 PM EDT
Almost every weekend, sometimes both Saturday and Sunday, all day. Though I missed the last two, but my spring break is next week so I'll make up for it then!
Link Posted: 4/9/2006 6:33:55 PM EDT
In the winter, I usually go months between visits. Lately I bought a membership at an indoor range and now I am going once a week.

Now that spring is here, I have been going three times a week. I much prefer outdoor shooting.
Link Posted: 4/9/2006 6:36:22 PM EDT
Twice a month at least.
Link Posted: 4/9/2006 6:39:09 PM EDT
[Last Edit: 4/9/2006 6:40:24 PM EDT by legonas]
every other weekend or so. i drive like 35ish miles to my range each way too. but its worth it. i go more in the winter then in the summer. i like cold weather. lowcountry summers suck
Link Posted: 4/9/2006 6:46:26 PM EDT
I try to make it to the range 2 or 3 times a week. Even if it's only for an hour before I have to go to work it's well worht it.
Link Posted: 4/9/2006 6:48:34 PM EDT
I used to go about once every two months. When I was on my recent "vacation" I went two to three times a week. Now that I'm back to work I haven't been in about a month.
Link Posted: 4/9/2006 6:51:06 PM EDT
3-4 times a week, usually shoot 210 rounds +
