    I take at least one shot every day...

    I use some type of firearm every day.
    I fire approximately 1-2 hundred rounds on average per week.
    If I go a day without touching a firearm............well, I'm too sick
    to get out of bed and can't reach the nightstand!!!!!

    First, long range hunting for me means 100 yards or so. I only hunt on my
    own land and there is nowhere I can shoot for longer distances.

    I fire on my hundred yard range two or three times a month, using different
    Military rifles from WW1 and WW2. I also have a couple of up to date rifles
    that are tack drivers.

    I fire on my 25 yard pistol range three or four times a month, where I use
    a .22 conversion kit on my 1911 to practice drawing and firing from a shoulder
    holster. (Can't wear a belt holster due to back problems.)

    My CCW is the 1911A1 in.45 cal.

    Lately I derive more enjoyment from trying to shoot the tightest group I can
    at a hundred yards than I do from hunting deer. (You don't have to
    field clean a target). But I still hunt deer.

    By the way, I'm new if you haven't guessed it, so if I have broken any
    protocols here, be patient with me. God isn't quite finished building me
    yet. He's trying to do a good job, but I keep getting in His way.

    Re: How often do you use your gun in a year?

    Some get neglected for up to two weeks; I've even lost track of time and let a rifle go a month without touching one off. Most of the time my rifles see weekly action, with 1-50 rounds sent. My comp handguns fired at least twice a week. The round counts can vary a lot, but 8,000-10,000 a year for primary (my S&W 627) 4,000-5,000 for others. Unfortunately my firearms are in suspended animation currently, will I'm in Iraq. When I get back I've got a few purchases to make, including a 625 for USPSA, and a few long overdue rifle builds. Then shall begin a new era of shooting for me. I vow to shoot no less than 25,000 rounds a year; 20K for handguns, 5K for the rifles.

    I shoot either rifles or shotguns for hunting or target shooting between 50 and 100 times a year.
