      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.

      We take 3 9mm and one 40. No less than 300 for the 9s and 100 for the 40...

      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.

      Hi Lisa. We just recently bought my girlfriend a Ruger LCR in 38 Special (not 357) for $399. We both prefer revolvers. No safeties or feed issues to deal with. And they're more intuitive for us (quicker to deploy and shoot accurately). The LCR 38 special is super light, reliable as dirt, butter smooth trigger, and super accurate. I reload for us so our ammo cost is around $2.00 a box. IMHO a 38 special is all ya need for defense. I have 8 years in the Marines and 45 years of competitive shooting experience. I've won my share of IPSC and bowling pin matches. I guarantee that I can double tap a target much faster with a 38 special than most can with a 357. And both my hits will be center mass. My girlfriend has gotten pretty good with her new gun and I pity the poor soul she drops the hammer on. I have a shooting range on my property, so we practice together a lot.

      To answer the OP, I shoot about every other day, 100 to 250 rounds each day. It depends on the weather and my To-Do-List. I average around 10,000 rounds a year. I reclaim my lead from my sand pit, so my only recurring costs are primers and powder.

      The reason I'm telling you all this Lisa is because Ruger also makes the LCR in 22 caliber. It's exactly the same as the 38 special. So.... ya get to practice a whole lot with inexpensive 22's and when ya pick up the 38, it feels and functions exactly the same. My girlfriend is also getting the LCR 22. I recommended that she get the 22 first, but she wanted the 38 first as she knew I would be reloading for us. You would save enough in ammo cost by getting the 22 first so that in a short while you could get the 38 and have two extremely fine guns.

      Here are two videos.
      The first is an honest in-depth review of the Ruger LCR 38 special. Ruger LCR .38 Special - YouTube

      The second is a review of the LCR in both 22 and 38 special and the reason for owning both. Ruger LCR 22 Range Test and Review - YouTube

      I hope this helps,

      Don <><

      If you are looking for a first gun to use as a shooter as well as a self-defense gun, I would suggest something in 9x19mm. (9mm Luger/Parabellum) The ammo is fairly cheap compared to other calibers and is still powerful enough to effectively defend yourself with. JMHO.

      100 to 150 rounds a trip, two trips a month most of the time. This past Monday, I took two guns.

      I voted 200+ rounds per range trip. I have a range membership and I visit the range at least 3 times a week. When I go to the range I normally take 5 guns with me. I normally shot at least 100 rounds per each gun if not more.

      It depends. I was out on Saturday. It's great when it's cold, because no one comes out. I probably put a couple of hundred rounds through the .22. It's fun to shoot, easy, and non-fatiguing. Plus it doesn't cost much. I only put about 40 rounds through the Eagle, because I'm paying over $1.50 every time I pull the trigger. Talk about incentive to learn to shoot properly and accurately. Next trip to the range will be the 9mm, and I anticipate 200 rounds + through it. It's my relaxation time - early morning's there's no one there. Good times.

      Well, the wife and I went to the range for a short trip this morning(cold as heck), and I ran 16 rounds thru my Hi Point C9 and she ran 24 rounds thru it. I also ran 24 rounds thru my Beretta BU-9 Nano. With the availability of 9mm being pretty skinny right now, we have not been shooting quite as much.
