How many rounds per year do you shoot?

Postby Morne » Tue Nov 15, 2016 7:42 am

Prior to the great rimfire panic I might've separated out rimfire from centerfire. But honestly, it doesn't matter anymore.

Roughly how many rounds do you shoot in a year? All types: rifle, handgun, shotgun.

Some training places like TDI can burn up almost 2K rounds in a weekend.

Before I started instructing I'd easily shoot 5K+ per year. Now I spend most of my time on the range helping others so I've taken a sharp reduction in round count. I have to work at it to put 200 rounds downrange per month.

A TDI class a year boosts my round count quite a bit. I put almost 2000 rounds downrange this past class in October.

I try to get 200-300 rounds per month in as well - but I sometimes fall shy of that. Rimfire being widely available again has boosted some more of my pleasure shooting as well.

So, on average, I am probably getting around 5k rounds a year.

I was lucky enough to take four classes this year. One was air soft only. This year I shot approximately 1500 rounds.

I shoot about 10000 per year. That is why I reload :D

I'm at a bit over 9000 this year to date. Was shooting muzzleloaders a bit this summer so round count is down somewhat.

I try to shoot 200 rounds a month minimum, and usually get some additional rounds in too. I started to make a conscious effort about two years ago, when I just couldn't seem to find the time and my shooting was suffering. And that is both rifle and pistol combined, including rimfire. A quick hour with a 22 is still tuning up your skills. Plus I try to do one class per year too, although some of the more niche classes don't have a high round count.

2 TDI classes, plus Fun n Gun, plus some 3 gun matches...I'm pushing 5k rounds.

And people say 1000 rounds is a "stockpile". :roll:

IN CA, that is an "arsenal" with more than one gun of a certain type (i.e. one rifle is ok, not two)

I need to add a column in my log to track this but right now I only have a strict count of what I have loaded. In center fire, that tipped over 12,000 yesterday, for calendar year 2016. For sure, my rimfire is down from what I used to shoot maybe 3-4 years ago or around the Sandy Hook incident.

A typical range day is 5-8 hours, maybe 150-200rds of rimfire... maybe 600-800rds center fire, usually across 6-8 handguns. One trip every 3-4 weeks is about as close to "typical" as I can make it, less in the frigid time of year.
I like to swap brass... and I'm looking for .32 H&R Mag, .327 Fed Mag, .380 Auto and 10mm. If you have some and would like to swap for something else, send me a note!

I'm hoping President Trump can finally "Make Rimfire Inexpensive Again!" Since it is at least available to replace I've upped my .22 LR shooting without reducing center fire practice/matches. The S&W M&P-15-22 has me working with a "defensive" type rifle as much as I feel like. It was good (and bad! :wink: ) that I found a deal on magazines for that gun a while back.
Quit worrying, hide your gun well, shut up, and CARRY that handgun!

Prior to the rimfire problem I shot probably around 5,000 rounds per year. Up until a few years ago, I shot a lot of center-fire rifle and pistol ammo. However, a lot has happened to limit my time to reload and with the shortage of rimfire ammunition I thought I'd go back to shooting airguns.

I found a new addiction and made some more airgun purchases. I also hate to sound like an airgun snob but have bought some really nice high-end air rifles, made some modifications and enhancements to the same.

Anyway, I will shoot about 200-500 pellets a day and have even set up an indoor range in my house. I can multi-task by doing a little target practice by shooting at the pellet trap in the corner and watch TV at the same time.

I apologize if I have skewed the results of the poll but can I count airgun pellets in the round count?
