I usually hit the range once a week and shoot 2-300 rounds per visit. I may take 3 pistols on each trip running 100 round through each.

Every Saturday was range day for me... Now, I live in the country with my range literally out my back down, so I shoot about once a month... Maybe it's because going to the range is part social and I normally don't have that at home... Still, I like to shoot whether I'm alone or with someone...

I don't have a set day to visit or an amount to shoot. I generally go when I can put together a group of shooting buddies as it is just more fun that way. Sometimes we do rifle; sometimes we do pistol. We will even sneak over to the skeet and trap fields from time to time.

Well, I been pretty busy with school and caring for my new baby so I haven't really been out shooting much other than my pellet gun and .22 colibris in my backyard. However, when I do go shooting I always make it a whole days event. Usually I only shoot my 10/22 and my Mossberg 500. I shoot about 1,500 rounds of .22s and about 150-200 rounds of 12 gauge.

I average going to the range about three times a month and I will shoot 300 to 400 centerfire rounds. If I take a 22, another 300 rounds.

Arrange to go to the range.

We try to go to the range on the weekend about once a month. Used to go more often but the range closest to us was bought out by a delveloper and now we have to drive a little farther. The range we go to now is a indoor range and thats not quite as enjoyable as an outdoor range. But, better than nothing.

I usually shoot with wife (txbelle) and sometimes with my son or shooting buddies. When shooting with other people you have to work around their schedule as well as your own.

We shoot a variety of guns including 22 pistols, 22 rifles, 357 pistol, 38 pistol and two 9mm pistols. I get to spend the next day cleaning and fondling our guns. :lol:

Two or three times a week with the .22 in the back yard. Maybe a center fire occasionally... Usually 100-200 rounds of .22, maybe 2 or 3 mags from the Glock or SIG. Is nice to be able to shoot without feeling pressures of shooting a lot because you pay to get in or drove a long ways.

Neighbors get uppity when they start hearing big booms, Kommiefornians that move to a rural area where shooting is a way of life :roll:

I don't have a set pattern. I have a Ranch that has a good place to shoot, so when I'm in the mood I practice. Get a lot of practice on the Ranch at Armadillos, water moccisans, and copperheads. Have a Creek that runs through the Ranch that has a lot of mud turtles. They also make good targets. Keeps them from eating all the fish. Punch paper and cans occasionally. :-D

2 times a week. Shoot 300 rounds of big stuff, then relax with the 22's and shoot about 500 a brick a week. I can shoot 22's all day. Wish I had property to shoot at, in door range getting old.

I go 1 time a week at our country place. I've shot in the rain, snow, windy as ____, cold, and heat. I think it is important to know how a gun reacts in all weather conditions, and how I react to different conditions. I also shoot 10 rounds without my hearing protection on so if I have to use my weapon for self defence sittuation I am conditioned to the noise.

What? What was that? I couldn't hear you!
Do you know how loud your weapon is when you don't use hearing protection? The sound is totally different without hearing protection, it's important to be aquainted with how loud the shot is. I use good hearing protection when I practice, but I think it is also important to know what your weapon sounds like without hearing protection. Ten rounds I do hear ringing in my ears, but I also hear ringing in my ears when I get near some car sterios. I encurage all to use hearing protection, becouse if you can't hear the bad guy, where is he.

I run a business down on the coast in Texas. At least twice weekly I spend my lunch hour.....and a half at the local gun range. I usually practice drawing and shooting from concealment drills. I burn about 100 rounds weekly.
