Once or twice a week in the backyard. Weekly skeet at my local club.

Have not shot in two months. Ammo is too hard to find. The re-loaders can't find primers. Until there is a reasonable chance to restock ammo I will hold off.

We all know what could happen ! It is an ugly place with ugly hearts. I will not live in fear.! I still see the beauty in nature , children , neighbors and live each day to it.s fullest.Every breath is a gift and a gift I prefer to share.

Being in the (KNOW) is being as prepared as one possibly can.! Enjoy doing it is all I do. There are many things worse than death and the loss of of security ,personal peace of mind and freedom isn't life , it's existence..! Being an "Extremist" all my life has given me a sixth sense.I hear all , see all and will go out laughing and cursing either way and not alone..!!

Must a been a Dino hunter in another life or something.! Hmm..? Would a .44-mag or a .45-70 put a hurtin on ole "T-Rex"......? Hmmm..?

A 45/70 with the proper load & well placed will solve most any problem

used to go out a least once a week but right now i think its more dry fire practice and conserving ammo . i'll still shoot my .308 and a few pistols but probly not much in the way of anythign else for awhile.

Maybe once a month. In the summer I would like to go more. The indoor ranges are just too expensive when you buy their ammo. $26 a box for mosin nagant ammunition. That's more than $1 a round!

We haven't shot in about three weeks. It's not that we don't have ammo, I'm just waiting it out to see what happens. The good news is that it is out there. I picked up 1,000 rounds of 5.56 for $499.95 on Thursday at a LGS. I was kind of shocked when I saw the box on the floor - 2012 Lake City M855.

Usually twice a month although not for last 6 weeks since the range I use is military and they close down for a period to use it for other stuff.

Depending on how cold it is I'm only shooting my Mosin Nagant M38 as ammo is easy to get so far. As far as may 9mm and 5.56 ammo that's being saved.
