I tend to look at going to the range as a social occasion as much as a training opportunity. I shoot at an outdoor range, always the same safeties, I like catching up with them.
I'll take at least 500 rnds of .22 and maybe 50-100 of .45. I always end up shooting steel spinners or prairie dogs at 50 & 100 yards with my .22's. Lots of fun and a cool community of shooters.
