    every other day. I shoot at steel plates 15 yards. Target I shoot from 5 feet, 15 yards and 25 yards. I shoot my rifles twice a week 100yards and 200 yards. I'll shoot my scoped pistols at 50 to 100 yards. I go to the range every evening to find brass. Last night I went and found over 500 shiny 9mm brass. I love it when the rich goes shooting.

    I shoot at least once a week usually 2-3 times a week since I shoot at home. The ranges I shoot at are as follows 2&5 yards point shooting. 5-10 yards front sight only, one hand strong and weak hand. 10-25 yards full sight aiming, braced aiming, kneeling, and change-ups. 25-50 yards, 4",6",12' Plates, change-ups pistols to rifle and back, bulleyes.

    I would love to shoot once a week. LOL! I try to shoot at least once a month when I can afford the ammo and have a half day at work. With my handguns I usually stay at around 21 feet. Rifle 150 feet (hey, we're indoors, that's as far as the target goes ) and shotgun about 40 feet (or I'll be yelled at). We're handgun challenged here right now until someone from SigArms gets back to me, so my once a month goal will probably be missed by a lot.

    I shoot at least every two weeks. Sometimes every weekend. Gets expensive to shoot that often, though. I shoot mainly handguns at 7 to 10 yds.
    That's what is considered the optimum defensive distance.

    I try once a week during the crappy months. Not as often during the sunny summer months. Nothing too long in distance. Mostly stay around 20' to start. Then 30' and out to 45'-50'.

    Not nearly as often as I would like but pistols at 7,15,and 30 yards. About once every 2-3 months I get to do combat shooting including draw and shoot, and shoot the BG and not the good guy type of stuff, on the SWAT training grounds with my brother at his departments training course.

    I get to the range about 2 to 3 x per month but I also shoot USPSA about 3 x per month. I practice anywhere from 10 to 25 yards, usually double tapping 3 USPSA targets with a timer from a draw or just practicing precision shooting by shooting 15 or 20 rounds at a target trying to get all A hits. I also shoot "Bill Drills" - timed 6 rounds at 3 targets, only taking those times where shot placement is no worse than 4 A's and 2 C's. I also practice shooting on the move, mag changes and shooting with no shoot targets obscuring some of the 3 targets. Sometimes, I will count only "head shots" so I have to slow downa and really concentrate on accuracy. I record my scores and use an Excel spreadsheet to compare my scores with previous scores. Since I have to travel 50 m round trip to the range, I will usually go thru 200 to 400 rounds per session. Somewhat expensive but it's my favorite hobby so I pony up my money at Wally World. This Spring, I plan to start reloading. I shoot 9mm almost all the time so my ammo costs aren't as bad as they might be if I shot larger calibers.

    I try to shoot 100 - 200 rounds every week. I usually shoot indoors at 7, 10, 15 and occasionally out to 25 yards. If I can keep all my shots in a 10 - 12" diameter circle at 25 yards I feel pretty good. Slow fire unsupported at 10 yards I shoot the center out.

    I don't shoot as often as I used to as I'm not in a region conducive to casual shooting(severe lack of ranges near by, considerably more metropolitan that I'm accustomed). When I get back to the Northeast, I'll be shooting on more of a regular basis. As of late I've been constrained to twice a month. I usually shoot 15yds, 25yds and 50yds. As for rifle shooting, the longest range is at a pathetic 100 yds and due to the construction of the range, I'm not permitted make use of the prone position.
