    I usually put roughly 100 rounds through my P99 .40 when I go target shooting down at our sandpit...take my time, making sure I put good rounds down range...but I also practice quick fire, keep up my shooting skills from my time in active duty army.

    Around 200 and I am done for the day...not everytime though. 100 is the max and I get bored. shooting a static paper does not do me any good apart from shooting at the X, or trying to...

    I usually go at lunch so that gives me an hour to shoot 200 rounds. 100 rounds each if I bring 2 guns or 200 rounds if I bring one gun.

    200 with my 9mm guns - always have done this. Used to be 200 in 45 too, but now I just do 150 if shooting 45 ACP.

    If I combine the two calibers - 200 total. I also never take more than 2 guns on 1 trip, to make it easier on the cleaning part.

    On an average range session I usually go through 100 rds. or less. I like to keep it exciting for the next time out. It's also easier on the pistol ...... yeah, I know ....
    I baby my weapons ....

    I am finding I am shooting 200 rds of 9mm especially if I bring more than one 9mm gun with me; 50 rounds of .45; and 200 rounds of .22. I try to limit my range guns to no more than 3, most of the time just 2 so I can concentrate on that particular gun.

    I didn't pick a number.
    Sight in? As much or as little as necesary.
    Load testing? 50 to 100 maybe more.
    General screwing around. 200 to 300 maybe.
    Am I alone or did I bring the family?
    How much time do I have? Am I squeezing in time after work or do I have all day?

    short answer, it depends.

    It depends on the caliber I'm shooting as to the number I shoot. If I take one of the .22s I end up shooting at least 300, and I never go to the range without a .22!

    Depends on what I take to the range with me, but 300 is a good number to me as well. I'll spend a good three hours there with perhaps 2.5 of that actually shooting and not BSing with other folks. I'll vary my targets, and shooting scenarios, and try to get some 'practical' time in as opposed to punching holes in targets. I usually take the Kimber, RAMI, CZ-75B, CZ-82, Rossi .38 and Bersa Thunder .380, as that gives me different rounds, different firearms, different situations to work through.

    Lots of fun, good experience.

    I dont get to go as often as I'd like so when I do go, i Usually put 200 rounds through each weapon. Plus I usually go with either my wife or my children, so it may be even more from time to time.

    Normally I go to the range twice a month and shoot 100 in each of 2 .45's, for serious practice to improve
    groups, breathing, etc, and and then another 50 rounds total for rolling cans.
    I always take one of my .22s on 1911 frame and easily shoot 150-200 rounds. they have about the same
    weight as the .45s and have helped improve my accuracy with the center-fire pistols. I reload the .45 to help keep the costs down.

    I shoot until my attention span flags. Usually about 50 or 75 rounds.

    It takes concentration for me to keep focused on the front sights--plus always hitting the center of the bullseye is boring

    My Uncle bowled a 298 on the very first game he ever bowled (my father was there as as witness). All strikes except for the last ball. He never bowled again; he said it was boring.
