It's that time of year again! Let's see how much quality time YOU spent at the range this year :D

I had an extremely slow year with only 3,058 rounds fired.

I really didn't participate in most of the competitions and contests I usually attend which used to push my round count up into the 8-10,000 range. In fact if it weren't for the rimfire matches (which account for about 400 rounds) I wouldn't have cracked the 3k mark

Shotgun suffered the worst this year, 50 rounds spent on trap shooting and that's it.

Part of the slowdown was simply time but I think economic factors also weighed heavily, especially the fuel costs of getting to and from the range. We're remodeling an old house and that is where the money had to go this year, not in the gas tank or the ammo box.

I had been on a shooting hiatus for a couple of years. So I may have gone a bit overboard but my round count for this year is about 15,000.
Mostly all pistol rounds. Probably less than 500 was rifle. No shotgun rounds.

Mine has been waaaay down from previous years. Ammo shortages, ammo prices, dwindling gun fund all have played a role.



I've shot maybe 4-500 .223 rounds this year. Mostly reloads.

2-300 .308 maybe, all reloads.

200 or so 5.45x39.

1-200 .40&w

1-200 .45acp.

100 9mm. All reloads.

maybe 100 12ga.

Wow! I feel like a real slacker now.

Generally, I try and make it to the range at least once a month and usually burn through 1-200 rounds per trip (depending on what I am shooting). I never bothered to keep a detailed round count, but I would guess I shot between 1500-2000 rounds in 2011.

Im still holding steady at around 20000 or so, with most of that being 9mm.

Home range and I shoot about 5 days a week. I haven't got a clue how much I shoot in a year. Although I recently bought a Ruger LC9 and ran over a thousand rounds through it in about 8 days.:)

I spent way too much money buying guns and didn't factor in feeding them.

pistol rounds : maybe, 1,500. 1 brick of that was .22.
shotgun is usually about 5,000, this year was about 1,000.

I spend a fair amount of weekends at the club, just shooting the bull instead of my guns......:) Not sure how much shooting I'll do next year either. Most of that will be competitive pistol shooting once or twice a month. {I hope}

I can say with unflinching certainty that I shot more this year than in any year past. But I'll never keep count.

So my answer is: Who friggin' knows. :D

And he has an awesome screen name, too!

I've had a terrible year... Lousy weather, two automotive accidents, lousy weather, unemployment, and medical license suspension have resulted in a year with maybe 500 rounds down range, and that's probably a high estimate :(

I intend to do much better next year ;)

4832 rounds. I'm off the pace from last year by almost 200 rounds. I did not shoot as much rifle this year.

December 30, 2011, 04:05 PM
Excess of 25,000 this year. So far. I'm going out tomorrow for one last shot at increasing that total (pun intended:neener:)

essayons21
December 30, 2011, 04:31 PM
Lets see...

Attended Designated Marksman school, thats about 5k

Crew served range - another 1k

Ran an urban breach shotgun range - only about 100 rds, but most were door breaching rounds... tons of fun

1-day advanced rifle marksmanship course - another 1K

Annual rifle qualification - 40 rounds... :o Then burned up about 2k of excess ammo, all tracers. Had to take regular breaks to send everyone down range to stomp out fires.

Then on my own time took out 3 brand new shooters, and I try to make it to the range monthly, so probably another 5k of my own ammo. Mostly .22lr.

All in all about 15k rounds a year. Probably shot a bit more in 2010 because of Master Gunner course, but still a good year :)

EDIT: All you guys with exact round counts... how do you keep up with that?

EDIT 2: I forgot, also spent 2 days as OPFOR, with 7,500 rounds of 5.56mm blanks for my 5 man team and myself. None of it was turned in.

Do demo shots count?

December 30, 2011, 04:36 PM
I've been way low this year as well.

.22 lr, about 550
9mm, maybe 500
.357 mag, less than 100
.38 spl, less than 300
.30 carb. 250
.243 6 (two three shot groups to site in)
7mm Rem. Mag. 8 (two three shot groups sighting in and two deer).
12 ga. 150 shooting at clays, maybe 10 shooting at pheasants.

3246 centerfire pistol this year(mostly 357 mag). And 1500-ish .22lr

December 30, 2011, 05:02 PM
Maybe about 3000 rounds, about a quarter of them shotgun, then assorted rifle and pistol. Pretty slow year, but I did add to my ammo inventory, so I have more than I started with.

I just got into shooting/firearms recently... I've shot 370 rounds through my 1911... Sadly I haven't shot anything through my 1940 M91/30. I don't keep track of what I've shot through range rentals... which I would estimate at about 500 rounds of 9mm and .45 through a bunch of different stuff when I was trying to figure out what I wanted as my first hand gun.

December 30, 2011, 08:34 PM
Since my range log got caught up in some nasty winds and rain a very short time ago, I shoot an outdoor range and wasn't paying attention to it, I'd have to guess about 3,000 rnds of pistol and revolver. No rifle or shotgun. Hope to increase that greatly after I learn how to reload.

Between 5000 and 6000 .22LR
A handful of .38 (club lever guns)

I just went over 10,000 according to my log. Most of that was Feb-apr and Oct-dec. I shot very little in the summer. This has been my first year of shooting and while I have a lot to learn, the difference between now and last Feb is pretty dramatic.

December 30, 2011, 09:48 PM
If I had to guess it would probably be around 3k this year. I sure wish I could shoot as much as some of you folks.

Ragnar Danneskjold - The short answer is YUP.

Actually I haven't worked for DOJ for a few years now but you can go back on this forum and find me mentioning it any number of times when people start getting super-paranoid about what .GOV is and isn't up to :evil:

Now, back on topic, it looks like I'm not the only one who took a significant hit on range time this year <sigh>.

12 Ga.= 900-1500
9mm = 1200+
.223 = 1800
.22 =2K +
.38/357mag = 750 of those 500 were .38 SPEC
and a smattering of .22 mag, 17HMR, 22-250, 308, 45-70, 444marlin, 44 mag, 222, 30-06, 300 WM, 338 WM, 458 WM, etc

average year so far, but I shot 18 3 1/2'' and 3'' duck and goose shells this AM as the river thawed out so I could get the boat to the duckbird spot:D

Dave P.
December 31, 2011, 02:16 AM
2200-2500 of .22
about 1800 combined for various centerfire handguns
100 rounds of 12 gauge birdshot
2 rounds of .243........as in 2 dead coyotes.

December 31, 2011, 02:39 AM
All these are estimates...
~350 12 gauge (probably 50% high brass, 50% low)
~250 .45 ACP
~600 .22LR
~650 7.62x39
~0 .243

Haven't gotten to shoot very much. Classes and money have gotten in the way, but next year I'll be reloading, if all goes as planned, and I'll be getting a lot more lead down range.

I've worked for the Federal government also, but have avoided going back to that employer on principle.

I also seriously doubt they could accomplish the proposed tracking, or even that they would choose to. If they tried, the effort would cost 4-5 times more and take 2-3 times longer to accomplish than if undertaken by the private sector. On top of that, it would be broken most of the time.

These days, the Feds feel empowered to track your physical movements, barge into your home, and detain you without charge -- why would they need an on-line means of acquiring knowledge of your gun collection or shooting activities?

Dunno.
For sure it is not what is has been in yesteryears.
I mean for a while there, I had shot more in more day in the past, than I had all of 2011.
(There was a time I shot anywhere from 100 to 500 rds a day...)

Recently I have been "redeeming" myself with a new toy, and today, just before dark, I did take down four "varmints" with four shots.

I may not do what I used to, but I still know how to how fun.

About 1200 rounds of 5.56 in competition a few hundred more at the range. I didn't do much pistol shooting last year. I know I fired a BUNCH of shot shells at Larry's place and a few rounds out of my .375. One full magazine out of an Mp 40. ;) Maybe a brick of 22's.
