Once a week, 50 to 100 rounds, often more depending on what I bring to the range.

For handgun, everyday I do dry work at the house (may miss one day per month). I make a trip to the range about 2-3 times per month. Less than I had the previous couple years but I try and make due with the time I have.

I shoot at least once a week. I just love the smell of gun smoke in the morning.

No where near as much as I need to go, only twice a month lately and stretching ammo to 100 rounds a trip. Work has dropped off terribly lately.

At my office we have a number of CCW holders (myself included ) and we have a standing date almost every Friday afternoon (we usually close down around 2:30 on Friday) that at least 2 or 3 of us make it to at a local indoor range about 2 miles from the shop..... So at least 2 to 3 times a month for me.... More if I can get a weekend in at the family farm next town over. BTW... the benefit of our close to the office range is that we've taken some newbies with us as well (...some who have never even held a firearm ever!!) and turned them onto the fun of shooting sports.... in the process created more of "us" and less of "them" !!!
Moral of the story is... Go to the range!! Go often!!! But if you can, take someone with you!!... especially someone who's never been!!
