    Actual range time has decreased a lot for me. But, I now have a place to shoot outdoors at a friend's house so I'm hoping to get back to twice a month live fire drills. I still practice drawing and dryfire about once a week.

    When time and money permits I prefer to run about 100 rounds a weekend . Practice is the best way to know your skill level and your firearms capability. I know at least 2 guys who have and carry a gun and havent fired it in the last year. I want to know its gonna work and i can work it.

    Depending on cash flow for ammunition I like to try and shoot at least once per month about 3 to 4 boxes at a time.

    Since getting my GWL Ive gone once a week just to get comfortable shooting from a draw. Trying to really work on grip, form and accuracy.

    Average of once a month for the last few years, doing the "postal matches" here.

    Fortunately, I live in a remote area, have 5 acres of my own land and can practice outside nearly everyday.

    As often as time and money will permit. :shattered:

    The average last year was some time between monthly and quarterly. This year is looking better with a closer range and cheaper ammo options.

    I also like going to a few days of classes each year, which means saving change and a box of ammo here and there.

    As often as time and money permit. That usually is at least once a week, sometimes less.

    Drawing and snapping against the TV (fire when bad guy comes on, or commercial starts) almost daily.
    Live fire, not so much in today's economy.
    Clearing hallways and rooms in the house... ONLY when I'm the only one home 8)

    I've thought about getting one of those LaserLyte systems and combining that with a DVD .... hmmmmmmm....

    I wonder if there's a support group?

    I try to get to the range one or twice a month.

    I also go to one or sometimes two IDPA shoots per month.

    Finally, throw in a bowling pin shoot every month or so as well.

    right now i'm averaging once or twice a month. Mainly due to time and range distance.

    One of these days i'm gonna have enough land to build my own range. And it's gonna be 30' from my back door. And I dare any Brass Rats to try to come collect anything from it... :)

    I'm a member at Autrey's and used to go every other week. Slowed down after dad died and not being able to find work. It gets expensive fast.
