    2 to 4 time a week.

    Two to four times a week, closer to 2 the last couple of weeks, 200 to 500 rounds a week.

    Two or three times a day! :D It sucks having the range in your backyard sometimes though. We just had a rather large snowstorm... So I had to put on the boots and grab the shovel and then go find my little rams and piggies under the 20 inches of snow... THEN, I had to shovel a clearing for the silohettes to stand in. I can't wait for spring. SNOW! :cuss:

    On average about once a week. Sometimes I miss a week or two, then go twice on the weekend. I have to balance my consumption of ammo against my desire to shoot. Since I don't currently reload, my empty brass supply is growing. :uhoh:

    If I was lucky, I got out to the range about once a month while I was working. Now that I have retired, the weather has been too nasty to get out much. But, once it starts getting better...

    Prior to last year's concealed carry battle and then my subsequent new project, I was going at least once a week. Around the various holidays I'd get out as often as five times a week.

    Now it's every month or two. And it shows. :(

    I not really going to count the stepping out the backdoor because I don't want to piss off the neighbors (worse then I already have) so I only fire a mag or two. I don't have the backstop built for the rifles yet so I haven't fired them in over a year.

    So, with that said, a couple of times a year :(. The indoor range is too expensive to go more then that and the nearest rifle range is over 25 miles away :( and is VERY expensive to join and it closes whenever the owner feels that he wants to close it (with no notice to members, you just drive up and see the sign).

    I am trying to find a place in the woods or such that is free, I won't get harressed by the LEO's, and it's not endangering anyone/thing.

    I go once a weekend religously unless O.T. or other events get in the way. Been doing this for about 2 years now.

    Three pistol matches a month, and about to roll in two monthly high power matches. So I might have to do some swapping. Like two pistol and one high power, or two high power and one pistol. I'll just have to see how deep I will get into high power. Or I can do the Iron Man thing, three IDPA, two High power, and Three Gun Match every month. I'm lucky I guess, matches comming out my ears over here.

    I shoot as often as I can (depending on the weather).

    Built a shooting range on my own property, so all I gotta do is walk out my French Doors onto my deck, and shoot 100 yards down-range into my "fire pit".

    The only problem is that I go through Telephone Poles like crazy....they don't last very long against the AKs and FALs.....

    Unfortunately, the only shooting I can do on my 5 acres (who ever heard of an HOA in the boonies of South Texas??? :cuss: ) is with my pellet gun, but I put 40 rounds (at least) into my 50 yard silhouettes every evening after work (great therapy, as well as good practice). I also shoot my M1A every Sunday at the local range, and my Glock 17 goes along every other Sunday. The .22's, the Mini-14, the shotguns, and the newly acquired .308 Savage 10FP get thrown into the rotation now and then as well.

    Me and Beetle Bailey try to get out to the range every weekend. An occasional weekend goes by without a trip to the range, but they're uncommon.

    Right now, given the demands of my job and family...about once a quarter.

    That should be changing later this year. Army will be sending me to a new job, hopefully one where I get both days of the weekend off.

    The local range that was literally 10 minutes away from my house burned down (just my luck), the next closest one is an hour drive away, so I can't go as much as I'd like. Wish I could go every day though. :D

    2 or 3 times a month, weekly as hunting season approaches.

    Almost daily when the weather's right, but lately its been few and far between. When it's so cold that your fingers hurt when loading a magazine and you have to dig through the snow for your brass I get kinda' discouraged. My club has an indoor range, but the ventilation sucks, so I rarely use it.

    No...the ventilation doesn't suck....that's the problem! :mad:

    It's been almost two weeks now though. I might be forced to breath some smoke soon. :uhoh:

    At least once every weekend, at least 100 rounds through my primary carry gun. I do, on occasion, miss a weekend, however I have had plenty of weeks/weekends where I went shooting twice or more times.

    I missed last weekend. But I went last night. I'm going back tonight. Probably tomorrow as well, and possibly Sunday.

    At lease once a week. I'm on a league. Shoot most Saturday mornings as well.
