    Hey guys, new member here, new to glocks and guns in general. Just wanted to see how often some members here go to the range, and how many rounds you usually shoot per visit? Since I just got my first glock and a range membership, I usually go once per week (sometimes twice), and put about 75-100 rounds through my G17. I wish I could shoot more, but it would get really expensive for my budget :)

    If you're training then I wouldn't recommend shooting less than 200. Muscle memory takes several thousand repetitions to learn and a lot of time. 75-100 rounds just fly by too quickly to teach your muscles anything new.

    I try to go at least twice a month and shoot 200-300 rounds per visit.

    Between 9 mm , 357mag, 45acp and wife's 380 average 500 or more every weekend almost. Sometimes more/less depending on time. This is my wife shooting also, and 75 % of those are 9mm with the glock.

    I go once a week and shoot a 100 round drill I came up with, then I shoot 50 more on a Balance of Speed and Precision target. On Sundays I shoot around 150 more with a group.

    About 150 rounds once or twice a month in 9mm. The .45 holds less so I just bring a box of 100 if I shoot the 1911.

    I go every two weeks with a neighbor friend and we each fire 100 rounds (sometimes more) per visit. We share the same lane and go through a number of differing scenarios with our makeshift targets (index cards, paper plates, 8 1/2" x 11" printer paper with various things on it, etc. Never a "standard" target.

    I go several times a week; and generally shoot around a hundred rounds per visit. (Sometimes less, right now I just want to maintain my muscle memory and reflexes.) Years ago I used to fire between a thousand and fifteen hundred rounds each month; and I was at the range, like, everyday.

    And that's why I reload .45 ACP with 200 gr LSWC bullets for about $6 per box of 50.

    With 3 or 4 people shooting out of my ammo can, it gets empty in a hurry!

    I used to go to our local rifle range* and shoot a box of .40's or 9's at a 7 -10 yard target. As I accumulated pistols I learned quickly to fire the "heavier artillery" first, and then the lighter.

    Then I joined the gun club which has an IDPA practice every week, and I'd occasionally go up to the "range" to practice for that with 2 or 3 mags.

    Since I got my .45GAP, however, I also got into reloading, and maybe once a week, go up to the range to test a few of my loads (max - 20 rounds). The bulk of my shooting (90 - 100 rounds a week) I do at the gun club.

    Amazing how frugal we get when we "roll our own" on a single stage press!

    *Ed: I shoot on my own at Siberian Rod & Gun Club, which is set up as an outdoor rifle range out to 300 yd.

    The Club is Plattsburgh Rod & Gun Club, which has weekly organized pistol and rifle shoots, including weekly IDPA practice.

    Normally around 100 in each caliber, and I bring 3-4 calibers.

    If you got into reloading, you could shoot 3x more for the same price, and even have more accurate rounds.

    I shoot about 75 rounds of 45. After that I'm just throwing lead downrange and my wrist hurts more.

    Being new to shooting, I have been going between 3 and 4 times a week and usually shoot about 150 each trip. I just purchased a .380 so i'll likely be shooting 100 of each 9mm and .380 each trip.

    I need to get educated on reloading since I shoot so much 9mm. I have a .45 on order so that will add to my costs as well.

    If I get the Advantage Arms .22 Converter for my Glock, does the reduction in recoil seem to affect your training? .22 is a LOT less expensive so I could shoot a lot more but that really doesn't matter if it gives you a false sense of security in your practice...

    I had to cut back. Usually 150 to 300 now depending on what I'm shooting. I try to limit myself to just two calibers.

    Before around 500 to 750. (250 9mm, 250 .40 SW, 50 .357 Sig, 200 .45 ACP or some such. Now maybe 150 .40 SW and 150 of whatever else.)

    Time and money are in short supply these days and I want to build up a reserve just in case another ammo crisis hits.
