    How many of you guys only actually shoot 3 or 4 times a year, but frequent this board?

    If I go two weeks without shooting, my weak eye starts squinting and my trigger finger begins to curl involuntarily.

    But I do get the bug to go shootin' if its more than a week.

    just to rub it in.........during the 1/2 of the year I have off, I try to get in at least 3 or 4 shooting 'events' a week.

    Sometimes it is only blasting off 1/2 a box or so of .357 or .44mag while out on a fishing hike, but it is still fun and makes the day even better. Come on out to Bend as I guide for free to some of my favorite spots (but ya can't get there with wheels!)

    Hmmm...

    Only shot a couple of times this week.

    On Thursday, lendringser came over with his Neos and I dragged out my Model 34. We took 100 rounds of .22 out to the back yard and defended ourselves against a rabid soft drink can.

    Friday afternoon, I got bored, ran upstairs and got my HK91, and took it out back and ran a magazine through it just for kicks doing quick shoulder-rifle-fast-sight-picture-pair-of-shots-back-to-low-ready stuff.

    Normally I shoot at least 3 or 4 times a month, but not recently. This board is free. Unfortunately, ammo is NOT. Don't blame me - "college kids are supposed to be poor." I hate that.

    On January 4th, 2003, if you asked the same question, I could have said 'YES, I've only shot 3 or 4 times THIS year.' :D

    I've shot at the range 3 times in the last 10 days. I usually go once every 2 weeks if possible. I also try to bring a new shooter whenever possible.

    Last semester I shot 1000rds of 8mm mauser. Great round for the college guy on a budget, oh and sometimes I take my money budgeted for lunch and buy more ammo. I burn a 1000rds of .22 a month. But my range is 50yds from the door of the house. My wife likes to say when I have a bad day at the socialist cesspool called college I like to come home and shoot until I am happy. With the Turk Mauser, it normally means I have a black and blue shoulder.

    I've been cutting down spending some ammo money on some new toys. But still shoot about 4 times per week, as few as 10rds and sometimes more. Like today I shot once, 300yds put a 150gr corelokt into a wild hogs shoulder. Figured that was good enough for the day, besides I had butchering to do. :D

    After my move to Indianapolis in 1995 or so, I probably only shot once every couple of months up until 2001. Late in that year I moved back closer to my home town (which is in southern Missouri...I live in northern Arkansas, though). Now, living in a more rural location, I shoot at least a couple of times per week. For a while there, while I was living in a motel for several months before I bought a house here and moved my family down, I had nothing else to do so I shot nearly every day after work AT the workplace (a quarry). Ahh...it was great...I shot the Benelli quite a bit, the AR, handguns in 9mm and .45 ACP, the .308 bolt gun...wonderful.

    We've shot twice this weekend alone. 3-4 times a year and I would probably go through the DTs.

    I'm lucky to go once every couple of months. And I haven't fired the SKS in 7+ months. I feel bad going by myself without my wife, but I suppose I should since she can't always go with me.

    It's been a year since I've shot at the range. Had to move and all, and I got my CHL 5 months ago (using my Florida training certificate), and will be getting a handgun hopefully in the next two weeks (a nice Glock 19).

    Honestly, I might make it to the range once a month. Mostly just to make sure I haven't forgotten anything. It's expensive and a long drive (for me anyway). I would like to shoot more but cannot spend the extra money always or simply cannot find the time. When my wife and I have kids, it will be even more difficult.

    Ok I'll admit it!

    It's not something that makes me proud, but I do TRY to get out at least once a month. Of course I do WANT to go more, but unfortunately food, house payment, car insurance, diapers, etc.. get in the way.

    I don't know if it counts, but I do fondle my pistols at least once a day. More often than not twice.

    Is there a 12-step program for shooters?

    That's about how many times a week I shoot.

    Generally, Saturday and/or Sunday is a match, as is every Thursday. Generally, Tuesday is my practice day. I shoot around 1K rounds a month.
