    And how many do you get for the amount of ammunition you shoot in one session?

    depends on the target.... get large one and aim for various parts of it till clustered and toss out if you're being cheap.

    usually i'll go through all my rounds on one target, then blast it up with some 12ga at the end of the day :naughty:

    Normally I don't shoot at ranges, but if I do I just add sticker targets in the non-shot up areas of the piece of paper until it starts falling apart.

    Dads friends farm most the time... shoot cans, spinners, random shit, etc... We go there a lot. It's nice to because usually about 4-5 other people will show up also and you get to try new guns every time almost :hs:

    Depends on the target. I never really go to ranges but will start now that I just got an indoor membership.

    Usually I change my targets after each kill, broken clay, various shot groupings, etc etc.

    I shoot about 10 to 15 rounds per target, but then my target is a piece of paper (printouts from the office that I draw a 3 inch circle on the back of it w/ a sharpie) so I can go through them like that w/o too much financial impact.

    I don't shoot at targets. I hold my rifle terrorist style and fire in the air.

    I change the target when I'm sure it is good and dead and won't attack me. Then I challenge my self to shoot the staples out to drop the target.

    I put Post-it notes on my targets and shoot for those, then just replace the Post-its every few mags.

    Did you make them or buy them?

    I was thinking about buying some Cor-Ten and welding it to some auto springs.

    They're our range equipment supplied by our members. But if you are handy with a welder, they are very easy to make. You just have to have access to material.

    Just to be clear, I use these for movement drills (advancing and retreating), transitions (multiple plates) and draw fire drills. Not for static shooting unless I'm sighting in.
