Great advice. I shoot daily myself. My range is in the back yard.dwcfastrice said:Minimum is 2x a week and up to 5 times a week.
I usually go through 100-500 rounds (combination of various calibers including .22lr) per session.
I budget my time to do it as part of my "commute" home. It also allows me that "Break"/ritual, where I can leave work at work and not have to bring the frustrations of the day through the front door with me.
FOr those with kids/responsibilities that have trouble finding the time, its imperative that the time be made, even if it's 20 minutes (2-3 mags worth). You have the firearm to help protect your family and we all need to maintain that skill. OTherwise, the lack of practice is going to cause you to be a less effective protector, which defeats the purpose of you having the firearm in the first place. Even if it's 15 minutes a night of drawing and dry firing, an re-enforcement of that muscle movement is going to help.
I built a 100/200/300yd for rifle and have couple different spots setup for my handguns. I have been averaging 150 rounds a days. Working on rapid fire multiple targets currently. I have a pack of coyotes to call up this weekend. Gotta save the wife's chickens. ;-)Blackmagic02 said:I normally shoot 100 rounds per week with 2 different guns. One of those weeks per month I try to devote to rifle. I also shoot in a "Fun Gun League" once a month. Timed competition that includes some strong and weak hand shooting.
