Default How often do you practice with your weapon?

Alright guys, I know some of us have become complacent so be honest.

No where near as much as I'd like and not as much as I need too, to be proficient.
Guess I'm gettin old.

I used to practice once or twice a month at the ranch, but I recently put in a much more elaborate range right at the house, and now I am out there a couple times a week.

It is amazing how much more I shoot with the range 50 yds from the house as opposed to 1/2 mile.

The answer is, no matter how often, its not often enough. But usually 1-5 times a month for me.

I shoot my 1911 at least once a month for IDPA. But I also go to the range quite often. Maybe once a week. At least once every two weeks. But I am shooting different guns on those trips. I try to put a few rounds through my cc gun every now and then just to stay proficient. I have been experimenting with several hunting rifles and different loads getting ready for elk hunting. So I have been to the range about 3 times in the last week plus the competition this last weekend.

I shoot once per week, weather permitting since I use an outdoor range. I have several pistols in my carry rotation so it works out that I'll practice with a particular one about once every two months.
