    How often do you shoot?

    Forgive me if this is already a thread, searched for it but nothing came up...

    On average how much do you guys on the forum take your guns out to shoot?

    Since my range is in my front yard I can shoot at will and daylight allowed. It is a shame work interfers with shooting time.

    It's about 10 miles from my house to the range. I try to get there twice a week. Sometimes I make it three times. Was there tonight.

    I average more like 4 days a week for handgun and twice a month for shotgun/clays.
    I shoot 9mm about 80% of the time and .380 the rest. No major calibers...ammocost+higherrecoil+fewer rounds per clip+greathollowpoints=no need.

    Twice a week,I go every Tuesday & Thursday. But I also teach 4-h on them days. And on the weeks end, Are club is packed. So it works out good for me to shoot on the same days I have to teach.

    Not as often as I would like. Last time I went to the range was July 1. I would be happy with a couple times per month, but couldn't afford more even if I had the free time.

    I try to get to the range or a match at least every weekend. Last year I went shooting 69 times, a new record for me. This year so far 38 times.

    I try to go at least once a week but don't always make it. Earlier in the year I was pretty consistent but the last couple of months have been harder. I will say that now that I finally have .22 to I'll be spending more time due to the cost on ammo. Still like to put at least 50 rounds through my P226 every outing.

    About the same here. $25 an hour plus ammo is more than I can afford on a more frequent basis.

    Too bad for me, but I only get to the conservation club I belong to about twice a month! I work O/T a lot on weekends, and it screws with my shooting time. I have to admit though that I am a die hard through the winter. That is the best time to shoot for me because most people at the range are fair weather shooters.

    About 2 times a week.....3 times if I feel I need more practice or if I am trying out some new loads. I would like to go more but I have to fish sometime and my buddies and I golf once a week and then riding the motorcycle has to have its days too. Oh yeah yard work.

    I try to make it twice a week, not far from the house. But I started my senior year today and I'll be really busy now.

    I dry fire and do drills daily and go to the range (USPSA Range) 2 times weekly until hunting season. During hunting season (the middle of august until december) I get very little practice.

    I try to get out at least 2x a month, money and time permitting. If I had more of both, I'd be shooting more.

    Having said that, I dry fire just about everyday on midsized Glocks and the M&P40F.

    a place to shoot is hard to come by for me. the ranges are at least an hour and a half away, and thats just hard to find the time for.

    We shoot mostly on weekends and the distance to the range is great. However, since we have a local club we carpool and have a great time. According to local laws, we are not permitted to shoot within two miles of residential buildings.
