2-300 on a good day. When we "picnic" at the range, we often go 500+ in an afternoon (per gun per caliber).

Yah, and brassing afterwards is a royal pain!

Reload, and you could!

BTW, I am a NRA Certified Metallic Cartridge Reloading Instructor. :D

My greatest regret with a Glock is that I cannot fire bare lead bullets thru them, and I am too lazy to start dicking around with barrel swapouts. I should, though.

Here is what we shot off in one AFTERNOON:
3,000 rounds .223 Rem
2,300 rounds 7.62x39
2,000 rounds 9x19
1,400 rounds .45ACP
1,000 rounds .40S&W
1,000 rounds .22LR (2 boxes of 500 ea)
500 rounds 12-ga (assorted, birdshot and sabot slug)
150 rounds .44 Magnum
12 of the 1/2 pound Tannerite exploding targets

And there were only 5 guys shooting! All but the .22LR and the 12-ga ammo was reloaded ammo. My buddies pay me for materials + labor, I reload, we go out and (literally) have a BLAST! :D

If you shoot a lot of pistol/rifle ammo, and you have time on your hands (like weekends and such), and have the mindset for strict attention to detail, then you may want to look into reloading. Besides, when SHTF, what'll you do when you're out of ammo and the zombies will come back at sunset? :p

Lol I've been buying about 500 each time I go so I'm kind of stocking up but maybe I will look into reloading. Seems like its kind of difficult lol

It is actually a very simple process. The only "difficulty" is the need to pay close attention to detail. Remember: if a loaded round gets screwed up, it could blow your gun up! I find it easy. It is demanding in detail and attention, but only insofar as the setup of each step is concerned. After that, it is brainless work.

Not trying to hijack your threat, though.:)

200-500 depending on the range.
Many of the public ranges will wear me out in about 20 min.
Those days I might shoot 50-100.

I go with all mags loaded plus 100. I found out I can only take what I plan on shooting otherwise they would all be be gone at once! Practice is usually Purposeful, working on very specific aspects of shooting. Grip positioning and control, recovery for double tap. We also concentrate on tight groupings which is where I suffer the most although greatly improved.

When you are practicing drawing from concealed holster, do a lot of dry-fire practice in front of the mirror, with no ammunition in the room with you;)!! Then go to the range, in front of a target draw and fire one round. Repeat as necessary to be able to bring your point of impact into CBM. This requires a LOT of practice, and a LOT of ammo! Have fun!
