      If there are any open BLM lands somewhere nearby, you don't need to go to a formal ("square") range. All you need is a solid, secure backstop (for instance, a hillside) that's her than 100 yards from any public road.

      great advice!

      Steve, you've always seem to have great information. Thanks!
      I will try to incorporate what I can at the range when I go... While I wouldn't call them "square" (LOL!), they do have the typical rules (holster draw, cross line firing, etc.).

      I am saving up some spending money for some of their defense classes which I hear are really good. (the boss hates it when I blow a pile of Benjamin's on old car parts and gun stuff in the same month!)

      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.
      ...
      DD3,
      are you thinking IPDA?

      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.

      Cheers!

      OK, I think I know now... its gotta be "practical shooting".

      I answered as much as you can. I just bought my first handgun (beretta u22 neos 6"). last weekend my friends and I found the time to fire the first 250 rounds through it. today a different friend and I fired 520 rounds (I live in the city, so I can't just go into the back yard to shoot). Next weekend I am going to check out the 2 gun ranges that are near me (one is about 15 miles away, the other is around 25 miles). I will probably shoot about 250 rounds a week if I can continue to find ammo (even 22lr is getting hard to find here).

      Cool Rounds

      When I go to the range, I normally just go alone with my 9mm and a box of 100 rounds. On occasion, I take my 9, and my son and a couple hundred rounds of .22 ammo for my Phoenix Arms and my son and I shoot for a few hours. I also like grabbing a couple boxes of 30-30 ammo and shoot my Winchester.

      Pistols

      After 200 rounds, my ability to hold a good sight and hit where I want is going downhill. 100 is great, but too short a range time. If my Son shoots with me it doubles the amount we shoot, up to 400 or 450, he is much younger.

      As it is has been said "Youth is wasted on the young".

      If I can't shoot at least 200 rounds, it's not really worth it for me to go to the range. But there are the time where my brother comp's our trip to the range (ammo included). Depending on how many of us are going, sometimes its less than 200 rounds, and I'll usually ride with him when he is able to comp our trip. Therefore forced to leave when he does. But hey.... when its free and you get some good quality time in with your bro..... priceless!

      It seems I can't get out of there without shooting a few hundred. I think if ammo was limitless and free I couldn't ever get myself to stop saying "just one more mag"!

      When I first bought my G19, I did the thousand round test at a buddy's ranch.....it needed a new recoil rod after that christening...But I broke it in well and killed a pile of possum, skunks, and raccoons. My Sig is about to get a similar test soon, just have to save up for the 45acp.

      I like to shot around 300, it helps relieve stress, better than a three mile jog.

      200 rounds sounds about average.
