    Couple times a week.

    Sometimes if I work 12hrs or more at work, I just take an extra long dinner break and hit the range.

    I'd go every week or two if I could, I've been trying to put my money into other things and an hour drive plus gas plus fees means I haven't actually been for a couple months now.

    Part of my problem is that the rifle/pistol range is up by the lake (25 min. drive) and usually if I'm driving up that far I feel like hitting the water. :hs:

    I hit the sporting clays range after work sometimes but it's only open Tuesdays & Thursdays & that's more fun with a friend. Right now all my shooting buddies are out of town. :sad2:

    3 or 4 times a month usually. I just moved though, I plan on getting a membership to the local range here but I need to find the website again.

    Once a month or so. Once I get a steadier income I'll probably go more.

    Once a week on average. Probably be more often than that soon since I just got a 10/22, and won't be thinking of ~$0.20/round 7.62x39 or ~$0.15/round 9mm as "cheap" anymore.

    I try to get to the club three times a month, however we have so much to shoot that I don't usually shoot the same discipline every time. I shoot sporting clays , short pistol, 50yd/100yd pistol/rifle, trap (rarely), and action pistol (IDPA type range) we also have skeet, 600yd rifle, wobble trap, and fiive stand clays. And a cowboy action range as well... Almost forgot that one!

    I go once or twice a month. The indoor range is a 35 minute drive away and not open as late as I'd like.

    The outdoor range that I love (for my rifles) is a private range and only open to the public on the weekends. I only go to the outdoor range if they have the 50yd or 100yd+ range open.

    I honestly get bored of shooting handguns and I like being outside and shooting distance targets as it requires more skill. It also sucks being trigger happy and buying expensive 5.56 rounds. :(

    I agree. I just have way more fun shooting from a bench or prone and shooting distance targets. Punching paper at 20 yards takes skill, but it really gets boring to me.

    I like the variety. I like doing 100-200 rounds through my 2 handguns. Then doing 150 through my AR, maybe 30-40 through my Mossberg, and blasting my 91/30. :bowdown:

    Hopefully I'll be able to get out there 2-3 times a month -- they have IDPA shoots every month that I'd like to at least stop by and watch.

    Just bought a rifle too -- which I've never had and I plan on sighting that in soon.

    Try for at least 1-2 times a month, but that is not enough.

    Now that I have a more flexable schedule I hope to get over there more often. I hate going on the weekend, it's too crowded and all the gangbanger wannabes are there. And all my brass disappears.
