    Where do you guys usually practice firing? How many rounds per session do you consume and how many times a week.

    one_eye_kirat: if you want to practice with any of the BoGs, madali naman mag-sked. san ka ba nakatira? para alam natin saan maganda ang venue.

    prepare at least 100 rds. 200 rds is better, pero depende sa gusto mo na i-practice na mga drills. kung marskmanship, medyo marami.

    we usually consume less than 100 rds during extensive practice kasi movement drills na ang inaaral namin.

    PS: are you really kirat? if yes, libre na consultation mo sa amin ni doctabako...;f

    almost home
    pbdionisio 100-200 rounds every other week, at best

    Was hoping to sign up with Northstar (and therefore with a few other Armscor ranges), but the ventilation system at the MCS location isn't giving me encouragement

    Usually, the only time i can "practice" is during competitions especially when they're held one after the other although i do try to practice one day before competitions if i have the time, or twice a month on lean months.
    Usually a minimum of 100 rounds :)

    Most of my practice is also matches, so I shoot what I need to engage the targets properly.

    On thos occasions when I practice outside of matches, I usually don't go over 150 rounds for .45ACP. More than that and 1) it gets too expensive, 2) fatigue begins to play a role.

    I go through a lot more rounds when I shoot .22, but that's almost always plinking rather than any kind of deliberate practice. On the other hand, I plan to do more offhand shooting with my .22 rifle to help my offhand 3-gun shooting, so that could change.

    Most of your practice should be dry fire, but that is something I just can't seem to get myself to do.

    Same here, I found formal practice boring ( masarap may pusta :)
    Yung match na rin ang practice , pang gigimik ko nalang yung dapat pangpraktis ko ;)
    Pero , dryfire am, pm and in between
    Depende sa goals mo, what level you want to reach

    True, Master and GM Class shooters like for example Lito Pible used to practice everyday at 300 rounds minimum. Now at his level, he says he only practices 2-3 times a week with the same no. of rounds.
    I wish i had the time to do that :grin:

    advanced na pala ang mga training niyo. where can i find a good range in qc that has a complete variety of targets such as swingers, running man, plate racks, statics, etc... how much is the damage in regards for the usage of ur respective range. how about the reloading cost for every type of heads and caliber (9mm preferably since im into production).

    Questions Ulet:

    1. What's the highest position you've got in a Level III match?
    2. What's your average percentage for every Level III match?
    3. How high is your priority (please choose from 1-5, 1 being the highest) for this sport.
    4. How long have you been shooting/competing?
    5. You know how to do the moonwalk? nye!

    Okay ... someone tell me what "kirat" means, please!

    Re: practice ... on the Enos Forums, I sometimes take a beating because I like to complain about how bad I am and how badly I'd done in a match, but I won't do the dry fire practice necessary to improve. There are some dry fire "true believers" there and I think they are right, but I'm just too lazy to do it. ;f

    i used to reload and shoot a boatload of ammo in practice : ) but since shooting and training with some good shooters i. realized its not the quantity of ammo that you shoot its the Quality of practice that you get thats important..
