    Just wondering how often you guys shoot?

    Im guessing its around 300 per day for you guys when you do, but how much practice etc?

    Just a week or month average would do, and how many times a month.

    I'll start it off, for the last 2 months i have been shooting 50 competition targets and at least another 25 practice every tuesday night, and 100-120 comp targets 2 weekends per month.

    Total- i shoot an average of 6 times a month and a total of 100 practice and 400 comp targets a month.

    And you?

    I shoot practice twice a week in the off season.

    50 singles to start and warm up.

    150-200 doubles. If I don't break at least 45 per round I shoot some extras from the stations I missed on.

    100 caps.

    About 14,000 targets per year. Shoot twice a week, Wednesday's and Sundays. Unless an ATA shoot is on Saturday. 90% reloads, and I've made my own shot the last couple of years. New shells are what I win, I can't remember the last time I purchased new shells.

    I shoot @ least 300 rds a week, with a min of 200 registered a week---this possible now, due to where I'm living. If my back was better I could easily double this.

    My first shoot this year will likely be in the "zoo" at the Hoppie in May. Montana weather in the winter is something else. in the 3 days at the Hoppie, I will shoot 1000 targets of which 400 are Dbles.

    I won't shoot any practice until the weather gets better and the sun gets higher in the sky.

    Last year I averaged 1000 targets per month.The year before that almost half again as much. I had 6500 registered targets last year and I know that I shot at least that many practice targets. Registered week ends are at least 500 for the week end. I try to go to two registed shoots per month during the shooting season and I almost always practice every Wednesday nights 100-200+ targets depending on how I feel and sometimes Saturdays as well. I really would like to shoot more than I do just like most folks on this site would.

    I shoot skeet on Tuesdays, 5 Stand on Wednesdays and Trap on Sundays, and usually go through at least a flat of shells a week, all year round in Oregon. Mark

    I shoot 2 leagues on the weekends and practice 2-3 times during the week. Practice can be from 100-200 targets, then ATA registered when they are fairly close.

    Depending on weather and commitments I try to get in between 100 and 150 round per week this time of year. I seldom shoot more than 100 in a single session mostly because I like to go to the club more than once a week. When the weather warms up I probably will go back to about 50 practice per week but I should be shooting registered targets about 3 weekends a month.

    I will shoot 5 or 6 rounds on a weekend day and I will shoot both days.

    So figure a 250-300 for the weekend.

    In the winter league we were doing 200 targets plus practice so that's 225 on Sunday and the Saturday I will do maybe 4-5 rounds cause I'll be back the next day so those weekends maybe like 350.

    I don't have the luxury of shooting during the week & we don't have any night shooting :(
