Default how often to practice for casual competition

mostly to avoid embarrassing myself.

With some personal stuff sucking time up like a black hole, and only getting to the Friday night .22 plate shoot about once every other week, there has been zero time to shoot the bigger guns.

Today, went to the club range, and was shocked at how bad I sucked. Several hundred rounds later, things were looking a whole lot better.

Want to start doing more competition, but it's obvious unless my goal is the bottom 10%, I better practice So how often?

When i shot SASS i was shooting at least 2 times a week. But i also do my own reloadingwitch helps. I was told one time that it takes 1 hour a day for ten days to build up muscle memory on tour point if aim. I'ts something i have done with all my guns, but you can lose alot of it if you dont shoot that gun for awhile. This is what i was told how true it is i don't know but it wirks for me.

Shooting is a perishable skill. If you are not training, you will encounter people who do. End result, you will not be able to compete.

Isn't "casual competition" an oxymoron?

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

Figures you'd call me on that one

local competitions with limited prizes, more fun than anything else... as opposed to regional competitions where 99 bullseyes are the norm, or the national competitions where 100 bullets have to go through the same hole
