    I usually get to the range 2-3 times a week and average around 500rds total down range for the week.
    Thats in my handguns, usually shoot 4 or 5 cals through the week.

    The number of guns I'll take to the range every two weeks varies but the number of loaded mags I take and empty is always the same.
    Fifteen , full size, eight rounders equals 120 rounds
    Four, officer, seven rounders equals 28rounds

    I never reload mags at the range so my total is 148 rounds per trip. Sounds like a lot doesn't it? It sure doesn't feel like it's that many when I'm doing it.

    Over 200 most of the time I go, considering that it's either government paid for gun shoot, or its a relatively rare personal go out and shoot different guns at gun ranges type shoot.

    brief summary of a shoot I got back from.

    about 500 of 6,000 HE (high explosive) mk 19 mod 3 grenades (part of which was trying to put out a fire... did not work)

    about 500 shotgun shells for the m500

    400 5.56mm out of an m4 (50/50 split between aimed shots and auto fire)

    few hundred rounds of 9mm out of a m9.

    800 rounds of 7.62 from a 240

    and only a hundred or so rounds from the m2hb, .50 cal bmg

    being a line coach has it's privileges after long ass days qualifying det's from sunup to down,

    Visit indoor range once per week ........ shoot 100 9s and 100 .45s. When the weather's decent about 200-300 .223s per week at the outdoor range.

    We bring 3 handguns and shoot 50 to 100 per. My wife and I enjoy competition with each other and it keeps us very familiar with each weapon for ccw.

    Even though I selected 80-100 rounds, I often expend more centerfire handgun ammo during my practice sessions. The number depends on the kind of shooting I'm involved with each time.

    I usually bring about 200-250 rounds.

    It's an easy trip for me (the range is one mile from my house).

    I usually shoot about 100 rounds per week. Rounds are very costly in my neck of the woods, and sadly, we don't do reloads.

    Never enough my friends, NEVER ENOUGH

    I want to shoot at least 500 every trip but only end up doing at most 250 if that

    Bullets are FUCKING EXPENSIVE!!! I need to stock up before 2012 hits and bullet prices go even her up

    I usually take 3 or 4 guns. -- if I bring a 1911 it's usually about 100 rounds. With the other pistols or revolvers, it's what I need to maintain proficiency. As an example, when I shoot my 238, I usually shoot more than I want to. Little pistol, have to put rounds downrange to be fairly accurate. Other pistols or revolvers need to be shot regularly also -- so, it's about 200 or so rounds every 2 weeks -- that's why I reload.

    At least 100. Doesn't seem worth going for less.

    Seriously though, I run several drills when I go to the range and, depending on time, I go through 100-150 rounds each visit.

    I found that shooting at matches I use about half the ammo I normally would at the static range. Otherwise I would shoot about 200-300 9mm. If I take the .22 then it's gam on! I have gone through a 525 round bulk box of .22! How fun is that!

    Well i guess im lucky.My range consists of stepping out my back door.So it all depends on how many rounds i have loaded up.Usually handgun ,i will shoot everything i have loaded up.Rifles has always been a load every round perfectly.All my rifle rounds are loaded as close to exact with each other as possible for accuracy,so usually i will only shoot maybe 10 each time i go out.Just because it can take a couple hours per rifle to load up 20.

    Lately my daughter has gotten to be a huge fan of shooting so if we take her 10/22 she will shoot a couple hundred rounds and if she is shooting skeet,she will burn up one of the 100 count bulk boxes of 20 gauge you can get at Wally world.

    Its all fun though and never enough.

    Why no reloads? Where in the Caribean is your neck of the woods? I'm interested to know how much is ammo there? Is the price there tied to U.S.A. prices?

    Usually just 50-75 because my range is right out the back door.

    Anywhere from 50-200 rounds depending on my free time. I try to go to the range at least twice per month.

    Usually go a couple of times per month. I have 4, 15 round mags for my Beretta 92fs, so I usually bring 150 to the range and go through that pretty quickly.. In the future when I purchase the G26, I have a feeling it will turn in to a whole lot more..

    hello:

    as you know i am very new in this, and have not even taken the training yet, but one of the things that i wanted to do, in the decision of a handgun is the amount of time going to the range, the cost best ammo for which handgun as i was told that some ammo is cheaper then others and if you shooting alot you want to go with the cheaper of the ammo and then have a better type for your handgun for home defense, if this makes any sense as i do not want to spend alot of money when going to the range to practice, so i guess what i am asking is which gun would be good in how amy types of ammo you can put in it, as i read that you can not put just any type in some guns. is this true

    so, reading the above posts tells me it all depends on the person, from what i read on the tube and websites, they say some hand guns only take only certain ammo, and then others can take a number of diffrent kind?????

    You will find all this out in class.What I do is purchase an ammo for my pistol that is same weight as the round I use for primary carry.The thing is for practice you want to a cheaper ammo which is usually a full metal jacket and you want to carry for primary round is a Jacketed hollow point.The jacketed hollow point is used as the bullet expands and creates a larger hole.Buy a quality brand ammo in what a lot of companies call a personal defense round.The weapon choice you make will be a factor on what you use.Most problems are ammo related.Read the manufacturers recommendations in the owner manual which comes with the weapon.Ammo choices can be broad as weapon choice.A reputable dealer can steer you in purchasing the proper ammo for the weapon also.Be sure to check the manual before purchasing any as some weapons are particular on what will work well.As far as cost,I dont own a 9mm but it is a popular round and leeser grades is usually one of the cheaper rounds.But this as with any product depends on where you shop,geographical location and other variables.What can be done like I do.Find what ammo works well with no problem in the weapon..Then shop online and buy in bulk say 500 rounds.I do this and save 8.00 per box on what I can purchase locally.I hope this helps you.Im trying to give broad info without knowing what you want to buy.
