how much ammo do i need for 1 day of competition shooting
What type of shooting? how many courses of fire? How many classes are you shooting? Different courses and classes have different point systems and different round requirements. Also, how well do you shoot, will you hit the target with every shoot or is there a miss factor to add in?
"The whole of the Bill (of Rights) is a declaration of the right of the people at large or considered as individuals.... It establishes some rights of the individual as unalienable and which consequently, no majority has a right to deprive them of." (Albert Gallatin of the New York Historical Society, October 7, 1789)
"A free people ought not only to be armed and disciplined, but they should have sufficient arms and ammunition to maintain a status of independence from any who might attempt to abuse them, which would include their own government." - George Washington
Some clubs/ranges with websites will post a notice with each match stating approximately how many rounds you should bring.

"After a shooting spree, they always want to take the guns away from the people who didn't do it. I sure as hell wouldn't want to live in a society where the only people allowed guns are the police and the military."
William S. Burroughs
That is why I quit competition. Not enough rounds.
When I shot my first IDPA match, I thought the same thing. What they should do is REQUIRE you to make a certain number of shots inside the scoring zones instead of you just shooting til you think you got it. I bet there would be alot more shooting...at least on my part. HEHE!
"You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is about the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it."
