This should be interesting. I am talking about any firearm type. If you just "carry" that counts, too.

    Not many days go by that I don't either have one on my hip or close by in the truck. If a week goes by where I don't fire a shot I start geting withdrawl symptoms. I try to take at least a few LR practice shots twice a month or more.

    I shoot (and/or hunt) every week all spring, summer and fall. In the dead of winter I give myself a break because shooting when your hands are frozen just doesn't appeal to me any more.

    I'm at the range 2 or 3 times a week from last snow of the spring to first snow of the winter. Then there is the fall hunting trips, 5 weeks of summer camp for the BSA, teaching the rifle merit badge. As a retired LEO I still carry a 1911 every day.

    My view has always been, if you aren't proficient with it you shouldn't have it. Unless just learning. So I get out to practice about once a week at the range. Above all though, as always, is firearms safety. Practice it daily please.
