Other than going out in the back yard and popping off a few (less than 10) I haven't been shooting since last summer.

Been awhile for me also. What with OT, mini-vacation in SE Ohio, OT, replace front end on truck, OT, lawn care, OT and other things, it just seems something always gets in the way.

2 days.... my trigger finger is twitching already
Link Posted: 8/15/2005 8:08:23 AM EDT
Very long. I'm finding it difficult to find places to shoot....I miss my old sand pit.

I've been honing in my skills with my compound bow lately since turkey season is Oct 1st but I always find time to make the 5.56 and 8mm fly.

Months. Five, at least.
I travel between Mississippi, Texas, Mexico and Korea so often that I'm rarely home.
The summer's winding down and I'm starting to ramp up the travel even more.

Just around 20 hours.

I gotta range in my yard, so whenever I want. Bad thing is it greatly increases your $$$$ spent on ammo, not to mention policing the brass.
Link Posted: 8/15/2005 8:11:55 AM EDT
about 6 months here

Link Posted: 8/15/2005 8:14:02 AM EDT
24 hours. I set up my new f1 Chrony in the back yard and shot some Super Colibris thru it. That counts, doesn't it?
I'm putting more effort into reloading so I'll be ready when the heat and humidity slack off.
Link Posted: 8/15/2005 8:14:43 AM EDT
Besides in the yard at the occasional unwanted animal....about a month.
I'm adding on to the house so there's nothing I can do.
I did order a CMt 6 position stock that should be here today, though.

Almost 40 hours since I last shot, and I feel rusty already.

My normal weekend consist of either tactcial training or IDPA match, and my Sunday is for long guns. Yesterday, my regular partner is out of town, and a friend who came from Hong Kong (he is a US citizen residing in HK) decide on the last minute to skip out on me, so that scrub my skeet day. Oh well, spend a day with my wife shopping.

it has only been about 2 weeks, but i am already having withdrawals.
Link Posted: 8/15/2005 8:16:27 AM EDT
Two weeks, but I am going up to my range on Saturday to run some IPSC drills.

I can't wait, even though I know the bugs are going to be bad.
Link Posted: 8/15/2005 8:17:32 AM EDT
Me...a couple of times to the NRA, and only a couple of times to the outdoor range...last time in MARCH.

Way too hot for me now, but NO excuse for not going indoors to the NRA range, other than none of my slug/married buddies can ever go.

Probably about one month here. I've got 200 rounds of .45 sitting at home waiting to be shot. I only have 60 rounds of .223 at the moment!
Link Posted: 8/15/2005 8:28:04 AM EDT
I bought a SAR1 to celebrate the AWB sunset last year ..took it out once and haven't been shooting since (not even after I put a folding stock on it)..With the most recent birth this Spring I now have 3 kids under the age of 5 so I'm either busy or exhausted...last week's vasectomy should guarantee me some free time in the next decade or two
Link Posted: 8/15/2005 8:29:44 AM EDT
Been nearly 6 months! But I had a good reason had a Portacath installed in my shooting shoulder for Chemotherapy which finished the 18th of August and I got the clean bill of health last week I get the port out on the 22nd of August so I can go shooting! WOOHOO!
Link Posted: 8/15/2005 8:30:09 AM EDT
Two months for me, doc said no shooting since I tore a muscle and a tendon in my shoulder, I cant lift heavy objects or hold a pistol at shoulder-height, just about the only thing I could shoot before he told me not to was my lightweight M4 from sandbags. That trip was 6mo after my previous one.

Two weeks.

It's been a few months.

I feel shame.
Link Posted: 8/15/2005 8:38:42 AM EDT
About 4 months or so.
Link Posted: 8/15/2005 8:40:29 AM EDT

Been a few months.

Been up to my ass getting my house cleaned out and sold.

After it's done there *will* be time.
Link Posted: 8/15/2005 9:23:11 AM EDT
I left the range 30 minutes ago. And I'll be back in 22.5 hours.

Link Posted: 8/15/2005 9:26:42 AM EDT
I haven't been in two months. I have plenty of time to do it, but I just haven't been going since it's hot as hell here. I am planning on going this week one afternoon after work. I would go every afternoon after work if the damn grass would quit growing.
Link Posted: 8/15/2005 9:40:43 AM EDT
About 6 weeks. Busy moving the business.
Link Posted: 8/15/2005 9:46:21 AM EDT
About a month for me, 2 weeks left before I go back to school but I'll go once more.

Yeah that counts. How fast did they register? I bought 10 bricks of those when CDT had them on sale. I haven't tried them yet.

I'm waiting for the weather too cool down too.
Link Posted: 8/15/2005 9:55:33 AM EDT
It been several months. And I need to go! I have a 10/22 that has a scope that I shimmed and needs to be zero'd, and I have four FALs that need the gas systems tuned and sighted in.
Link Posted: 8/15/2005 9:58:06 AM EDT
2 weeks. Too many summer guests and BBQ's recently. I usually average once a week other times of year.
Link Posted: 8/15/2005 10:01:04 AM EDT
I went shooting last night just before dark. Fired 90 rnds out of my AK74. Man, I love that rifle.
Link Posted: 8/15/2005 10:02:45 AM EDT
2 weeks.

I just installed a KAC RAS on my RRA ent. tac.
...got my rails, got my vert grip, got the itch to go shoot it

It's gonna get scratched labor day weekend at the latest.
Link Posted: 8/15/2005 10:05:43 AM EDT
I did some shooting Saturday evening, not nearly enough range time though
Link Posted: 8/15/2005 10:06:25 AM EDT
I haven't been in about two months.
Link Posted: 8/15/2005 10:08:44 AM EDT
Almost two months for me. I'm moving from MD to TX next week though, so I'm looking forward to find somewhere to shoot.

Been about a month.

Went to hang out with my parents over the weekend. Wanted to go shooting with my dad (brought my guns, ammo and cleaning gear over) and we just ended up diggin ditches and repairing fences all weekend.

What the heck is the point in living if the country if you're not going to make stuff go bang and boom every once in a while?

EDIT: Come to think of it, my dad hurt his right shoulder (rotator cuff we think) so I guess he may not have wanted to aggrevate it.

Months........ with no return in sight. I worked every one of our club match for years I cant remember going longer than 1 month without hitting the range.

I had to drop out of the last IPSC match I went to due pain. Every practice shot can make me flinch, so I just gave up.
