    Nice question!

    My standard training is about 3 to 4 session for week.
    And i use to shoot not less the 250/300 rds per session.

    A little less with the rifle.. .223 are moooore expansive!

    I go out usually once a week depending upon the weather.(The range is up a really big hill making it impossible in snow and ice). 100-150 rounds is about average

    I go once a month or so, often with a friend. Each of us usually only shoots 50-100 each time. I usually warm up with some .22s, then go on to 9mm or .45, depending on what I brought that day.

    I try to stick to the Gabe Suarez school of thought that the more you shoot, the worse you get. I try to do most practice at home in the form of dryfire. The range time is just done to confirm that you're doing stuff right. It's helped me a lot. I'm much more accurate now on the range.

    If I get a new gun or a new caliber or something, I might shoot a little more per trip, but it starts getting expensive both for the ammo and the range time.

    I try to dedicate each range visit to one specific weapon.

    I usually can only afford to shoot a couple hundred rounds of ball ammo, and a few magazines of defensive carry ammo.

    Lately, it has been my G27 that gets all the attention. I find that after 150 rounds, my hands start to tremble a bit (with the G27), so anything after that seems counterproductive anyway.

    I'm an ex-infantry soldier, so i have more fun incorporating tactics into my range day, rather than trying to shoot hundreds of rounds downrange.

    Wish I had a range in my backyard...:supergrin:

    At the indoor range, I fire about 150 and leave. At the outdoor range I tend to spend lots of time socializing and resting between firing periods. On those days, I can fire about 300 rounds.

    I think he meant... if you are still at the range when your hands are tired and you are shaking all over....

    maybe you are done for the day?

    Since I only go to the range about 3 or 4 times a year now I try to bring and shoot at least 400 rounds on a trip. Also bring as many guns that I can carry.

    I don't usually shoot the same amount. When I feel like it I just grab the gun I want to shoot and walk into my backyard. :tongueout:

    I shoot about once a month at a friends range and its usually 250-300 rounds of different calibers .Being a bullet caster and reloader really helps me out.

    Yes, that is correct. Perhaps more range visits but fewer rounds shot per session would be the better way to put it. Since I don't see myself ever in a situation where I have to sustain fire hundreds of rounds downrange, I don't see the point in practicing to fatigue.

    I would imagine most people shoot better early in each range session rather than the last few rounds shot.

    I look at dry-fire as gameplanning for a football game and the range session as the game itself....you can put a week into the game plan but then only execute the game for 60 minutes, if that analogy makes any sense.

    Shoot 5 days a week and 20 to 25 rounds per practice, unless friends come over and we train longer...

    400-500+ once or twice a week. Usually 150-200 reloaded .45s, and the rest are .22s.

    I put about 200 - 250 down range with my glock 19 and about the same for the P22.
    Didn't think of the P22 when I answered the poll, sorry......

    150 rounds or so twice a week. More than that and I lose focus on what I'm trying to improve for that session.
