Re: How many rounds do you shoot a week?

I started with around 200 rounds between 12 and 20 gauge shotshells a week (trap and skeet) then I would make my way to the rifle/pistol range with my 270 win, 300 rum, 44 rem mag, 9mm, and a Ruger 10-22. I would usually start on Friday (most Fridays I was off) with the shotguns and maybe 10-20 rifle rounds, and would be back Saturdy and Sunday just on the range alternating back and fourth between my group. Meanwhile I also had to pay attention to my son with his chipmunk .22lr. Every once and a while I would get a little bored and bring my mini-14 with a 40rounder and 4 30 rounders just to let off some steam form being four hours from home all week and my wife having to work most of the weekend.

Now alot has changed, hours fell off at work and I had to pick up a part-time job so I may shoot one day out of every two or three months(really really sucks). With the range only being open four days a week and two of them they close before I get off from my regular job is the main problem I have.

Then you have to throw in archery. I try to shoot at least one hour a day when I get home(Have flood lights on end of house to light up back yard for this).

Re: How many rounds do you shoot a week?

wohoo to the chipmunk that was my first ..eerr... long range squirrel destroyer... I know how the shoulder stuff feels I had to have a shoulder scoped and repair...6 months in a 3 way sling makes you miss rifles. Being under 21 I could not really pistol shoot without my folks around (we live on a ranch so I could but as with all things in life something are just not worth the possible outcome).I am blessed to be around 2min away from my 100 and long ranges 3 min if I walk slow. Today was a bad day I was so flinchy I was making my poor FN feel bad shooting 1-2" groups at 100yards, I think it is work on my mind. This real world stuff sucks.

I fire about 30-40 rounds out of my .308 a week and 100-150 .22's and 12ga shells.
Old aunts used to come up to me at weddings, poking me in the ribs & cackling "You're next". They stopped after I started doing the same thing to them at funerals.
