      I selected "as much as I can"...I can't afford to shoot very much, so I do when I have ammo, and don't when I'm down to a mag or two worth of ammo. Usually, I only shoot 75 rounds, + or - 25. Anything more than that is too expensive, anything less than that is not worth the time. But on the plus side, my range is my back yard, so I can go whenever I want.

      Same here. The range is three minutes down the road. I usually pop in after work a few times a week. Sometimes I get to talking and looking at the new inventory and don't end up shooting at all. Either way, I get my gun fix. Met a lot of good people that way too.

      My range these days is just outside my back door. So shoot pretty often and it's as much as I want to then maybe watch a little TV then squeeze off some more

      If I'm at a "real range" then I tend to get into conversations with other shooters if I know any of them (and I usually do) so it's hard telling how many rounds. It's not all that uncommon for me to send 200-250 down range when I actually get to shooting. Caliber depending. 22's I wanna shoot them all day, 44 mag it's not near as many as I used to

      I usually shoot about 100-150 9mm, 50-100 .40, 100-150 .45, and 200-300 .22. Every now and then I take out the Python and run 40-50 .357 through it. I don't take the Python as often because I would shoot it all day. A few times a year I will put 200-300 through the Mini14. Speaking of the Mini14, has anybody else heard about Ruger making 30 round mags for this gun???? They will be expensive, but I am sure they are better than the $10 POS I can find. I may have to start a new thread about these mags to see if it is rumor or fact.

      Yea I've seen em around I know my local gunstore here had a few for about 35 or 40 a piece. I like the 20 rounders though simply because the bullets come in 20 round packs, it just makes easy for no counting.

      I usually run 100 per session through my .45, 9mm, or .357...whichever one I bring. Then another 100-150 through my .22. Usually visit the raqnge once per week.

      I generally shoot about 200 rounds per visit. I've been trying to be really conservative lately though..

      I average a couple of trips a month to the range, usually take ttwo or three with me depending upon how I feel. I put a hundred rounds through each one unless I take my .22. A couple of hundred for it each time.

      The number of rounds you fire is much less important than the quality of the hits you make with them.
      You can learn more in 10 minutes of careful, thoughtful dry-firing than you can from firing off as many practice live-fire rounds as you have time for.

      In years past, when I was competing, a weekend practice session of 300 to 500 shots was normal. But that was well after I had learned the fundamentals, and instead I was practicing the specific series of acts the upcoming match-of-the-month would require. Over and over again.
      When I was still learning the fundamentals, I would fire only 25 or 30 well-coached shots per week. The rest of the time would find me doing daily 10-minute bouts of dry-fire practice.

      Now I'm coaching my wife. She does her 10-minute dry-fire sessions; than, on every Wednesday, she live-fires only 10 to 20 carefully-coached shots. I let her tell me when she's had enough.
      We look for series of center-of-mass hits at varying distances, as well as careful gun handling.

      Too much practice, all at once, teaches you only how to get tired.

      Ammo is getting so hard to find and is now so expensive I've found that I only shoot between 1 and 2 boxes at each per range visit - I used to shoot much more.

      the way i shoot, i go out and shoot till im bored, wich usually takes quite some time, whatevers left goes into my range bucket, so depending on how many times per week i go, i could have anywhere between 200-450 rounds on a given day. no point in driving 30 miles to the range to pop off 10 rounds :-D

      1 -2 boxes of 50, slow and steady (or the small bucket, slow and steady...., plus I'm cheap! LOL!)

      Man you guys who are shooting 200+ at a time are amazing me! I must be wasting time or something.
      I'll load up 4 magazines (15 each) and see how it goes. (sig226 9mm), then I aim at 1 target per magazine. Sometimes I'll switch to my 22 revolver to switch things up, but thats about it. I usually leave with a partial box and 4 targets with large ragged holes (not always centered, but close to center if low).

      what drills do you guys do? I'm just placing one at a time, slow and steady.

      are you double tapping? Emptying the whole magazine or revolver at once? What's the deal? Does it help?

      The very best defensive drills involve shooting at multiple targets, preferably at different distances.
      If possible, draw from the holster.
      If possible, move laterally—either between individual-target engagements or (better) while you're shooting.

      I suggest placing three targets so that they appear to be a minimum of two feet apart, from shoulder to shoulder, with one target at seven yards from your firing line, one at 10, and one at 15. (Every time you do this exercise, change the order of the targets' distances/positions.)
      Start facing the center target, draw, and fire a shot at the nearest, then one at the mid-range, and finally one at the hest away. Then, without stopping, immediately go back and fire one more shot at each target.
      Or fire two on each, and then, without stopping, go back and hit each target's head with one shot.

      You are interested in smoothness, not speed. Speed will come with time and practice.
      You are also interested in the quality of your hits. Your body shots should all hit center-of-mass, and when there are two of them in the target, they should be close together. Your head shots should be properly centered in the target's head.

      As soon as you feel the least bit tired or "frazzled," stop shooting and quit for the day. Shooting past the very beginning of fatigue teaches you only to get tired and to miss.

      Great advise & training drill.

      Most ranges won't let you do that, but there are some "combat" clubs, that do things like this - I believe they call the sport "three gun" meets or shoot's.

      Wish I could remember exactly what they are called.
