Three or four times a day normally. Sometimes I sit for an hour or two but a lot of twenty shots here and there through the day. I shoot bows and crossbows as well. Have two different ranges in my house (15 & 30 feet) and a 30 yard range in my backyard. Different weapons for each range so I don't have to keep adjusting sights and scopes. My pellet rifles and pistols never see the outdoors. That's what my powder burners are for. CHEERS.

:lol: That is funny.....I find I'm starting to feel the same way. Well, it's good to relieve stress. I guess we're all in the same boat in some degree.

About 12 hours a week over 3-4 days indoors. More in winter months when hibernating.
But I have to feel that I want to . If not tired, early evening seems more calming for me.

Not often enough. Likely once a week if at home. I don't shoot inside the house any more. Would rather go to the indoor range at the club.
3 times a week when involved with bullseye and silhouette indoor air rifle.
That's getting to be too hard on the back now.

Sort of like the other thing, I think about it more often than I get to do it. :axe: Lately, though both are once a week :shock: .

I was laughing to much and forgot to say I shoot 30-50 shots per day. Mostly in my garage.

Some might call that neglect but I digress.

Not that long ago I was shooting everyday. Now it seems like once in a blue moon even though the guys call every weekend to head to the range. Heck all I have to do is walk downstairs and I could shoot. Priorities and lack of energy when you have young children.

I try to shoot at least once a week.

If I'm on a new gun, or new to me project, it could be much more....

During hunting season, it can be as little as shooting once a day- if only to check zero's....


I still don't get enough off-hand practice at once a week. Finding the time can be a challenge...
