    I try to shoot once a week, but don't always make it.

    Most weeks, I shoot 3 or 4 times. Being retired, and having my own range helps. I shoot a bit less in the winter, but I usually use the really bad weather (heavy snow/rain) to reload for less than lousy weather.

    I haven't had time to get out much lately so I am in the very bottom category at a couple of times a year.

    Absolutely never. I carry my gun with the understanding that should occasion arise, I will be able to pull it out with speed and accuracy, shoot with precision, save the day and a handful of lives, all without practice... or smearing my make-up.


    (If you didn't catch the sarcasm, it's there... So, don't yell at me.)

    HA... are you blonde? Seriously, I have run into some who actually think that way.... oh, and after 42 years of marriage, and teaching firearms classes, I don't yell at ladies.... I married one, and taught too many others to shoot....

    A lady never tells.

    Unfortunately, I've met people who think that way, too... Glad you don't yell at ladies. Hahaha...

    That's the beauty of living in the middle of NOWHERE and reloading.

    I generally shoot once a week, but that might change. I currently shoot at a range that is about 45 minutes away. I just applied (they too my check) for membership in a local club that had a waiting list. I should be approved on February 1st. At that time the range will be just 7 minutes away (except about 15 minutes during holiday traffic time).

    But I also have a 10 meter pellet gun range set up in my basement and I have a 10 meter pellet gun to practice with. This is a big help. I recently bought a "double action" pellet gun and I shoot with that too, though it is not nearly as accurate as the 10 meter gun is.

    I shoot my firearms to keep my skills up once a week. I work part time at an indoor range and the gunsmith has me zero the sights and test fire the repairs he makes, so I really shoot about 5 times a week. Pretty lucky, at least with firearms sports.

    Man, reading these responses gets me so jealous. Going a couple of times a month would be frequent for me. It gets difficult when the nearest public range is half an hour away with no traffic. Plus $20 an hour. It's frustrating because I'm relatively new to handgun shooting and there are obviously things I want to work on, but can only get to practice them on range trips that are few and far between =[. I can only hope that relocating is in my not too distant future.

    I'd love to go more but a couple times per month is about all I can afford these days.

    For Christmas my son purchased me a 1 month membership at a local range. I now go 3-4 times per week! Unlimited range time and free use of the rental guns, have to buy their ammo for rentals. Previouly went once per week.

    Best $40 gift ever!
