Years ago I shot at an outdoor range and since there was no time limit I would take three guns with two boxes of ammo per gun. Unfortunately, that range closed and there are houses there now. Where are people's priorities? Did we really need more houses?
Now that I shoot at an indoor range with time limits I usually take two guns and one box per gun. I have my name on the waiting list for an annual membership with unlimited access. Once I get my membership I will be going more often and staying longer each time.
We have a new law here in California regarding ammo purchases. Prior to the law going into effect on July 1st I was buying 8 or 10 boxes every time I went to the gun shop.
When I get that membership at the range I'm afraid I'll be going through my stockpile rather quickly.
Had not really thought about it. Back a few years ago some friends and I had a nice out door range in SC I did a lot of shooting then. 2 or 3 time a week shooting 100 RDS at a time I was shooting a Star PD .45 that was my carry gun at time. About a 100 RDS was all I could stand. I was also a member of an indoor range as well .Visited it about 2" or 3 times a week. My best friend owned a gun store back then. Didn't consider the cost of ammo. I got pretty good at shooting that PD too. Lately I don't shoot much. I have just ordered a Bersa trp9c it has not come in yet. When I get it I'm planning to do a lot of dryfire with a laser cartridge. Proably more dryfire than actual fire. Did a lot of dryfire in the military seemed to work.
Just started the past x2 years to keep track and document ammo type and round count.
I have been bitten by the rimfire bug these past x2 years. Weekly I take my 22's and 9mm's.
150 to 250 22LR rounds and 25 to 75 9mm. rounds. Twice a month I shoot 223/5.6 25 to 100 rounds.
*The best thing I ever did is join a good LGS with a great range. IMHO the best people in the world are in the shooting community. Ex law enforcement and vets are some of the best trainers around. Some of the forums do not give you the time of day if you are not apart of their group so it is important to me get with good quality local shooters. The other thing that it is good is to practice or train with the firearms you use.
Be safe and enjoy!
It can vary, but typically quit a lot and need to slow down and shoot more 22.cal. But I shoot twice each week. I have memberships at three different ranges, two within a mile in each direction, so easy to stop throughout the week and get in a quick shooting session. Once a month I spend all day a a local Club (outdoor range). I believe in Frequent Moderate workouts or training sessions. I also shoot a lot of Air Pistols.
I joined Target Sports Club for buying ammo and it has been worth every nickle.
