Just want to find out how often people here get to shoot and how many rounds do they usually shoot per trip to the range. As for me, I haven't shot in 20 years but I just joined a club and went shooting this past Friday. What a blast! I fired 80 rounds. I hope to go at least once a week now and plan to shoot approximately 100 rounds each time.

I use to go at least once a week, and try to take a tactical firearms course at least once a yr. However, I have been so broke the past year that I have only gone shooting a total of 8 times during the past year.

I try to go about once a month weather permitting. Usually with rifle and pistol. Maybe a total of about 100 rounds sometimes more(occasionally a lot more) rarely less.

Every two weeks usually. If it is at my club range then I probably shoot 150 rounds or so. If it is at a public forest range, then anywhere from 300 to 1000. If it is a shoot, 1000+

Not often enough. Five or six times during the year with .22 and 12 gauge. 200 rounds of .22 per and usually a couple of boxes of 12. There's a great place to go shooting on a friend's farm near my house, a big pit about 150 yds from end to end, with 25 foot sides. Cans, bottles, paper, wood, broken appliances are all targets that I shoot down there.

About 3 times a month... 200-300 rounds .223 per trip. I'm seriously considering a .22 to make things more economical and to vary things. I shoot two sets of 20 per 15 minute rotation which doesn't seem like a fast pace to me but the rounds add up quickly. I'm finding that with the rifle I want to spend more time at the range....

3 times a month in Spring, Summer & Fall. About once a month in the winter. (I hate shooting in the cold) Today I took out my Bushmaster and my Norinco 1911. About 100 rounds through the rifle, sitting, prone & off-hand. 50 rounds through the .45 all off hand. BTW, I have 160 acres I shoot on, 25 meter, 100 meters, and 300 meters. Also shoot trap.

Once I joined my gunclub in November I went several times a week for the first 3 months. I went nuts. One time I went 8 days in a row. I've called down since then. Between rifle, pistol, and trap/skeet shooting I shoot about once a week. When I shoot my pistols I only shoot 50-100 rounds out of each. With my rifles I'll shoot 50-100 rounds on average. I'd rather shoot less rounds more frequently then do marathon sessions and only be able to afford to shoot once in a while. Kin, why don't you add a poll to this thread?

Twice, then put the weapon at "high ready" and reassess. [:D]

Depends on where you're at in Texas. I'm in El Paso and surrounded by desert. I can go in any direction and find a secluded spot to set up and shoot.
