Normally I'll shoot 100 rds per trip, at least weekly. Recently it's been twice a week, because I'm recovering from surgery, can't work, and can't drive. It's 3 miles from my house to the range, so I walk there for the exercise.
At 15 yards, there's only so much of a challenge, so lately I've been closing the partition on the left side and working on smoking a BG from behind cover, (Hostage target) and moving from standing to kneeling and back while firing. 3-5 rounds per mag, one-handed. (The one that's NOT in the sling.)

I actually have to break it down...lol

Blackpowder day, 20-30 rounds.
SASS training day, 100-150+ .44 special & a box of shotgun shells.
IDPA training day, 100-200+ 9mm
Futzing around with the Calico & Tec-9 day (usually tied into other fun), 200+ rds.
Short-distance rifle, less than 150 yds, 21-50+ rounds (usually tied into other fun)
Long-distance rifle, over 200 yds, 50+ rounds (usually tied into other fun)

I keep several manufacturer's in biz thru ammo & powder & Pyrodex...lol

Anywhere from twice a week to once a month...in the wintertime I don't go out much, can't stand temps under 50 F...

I find this quite impressive, but then lots or most of you guys pack the guns for your own protection, unlike here in germany.

Since we don`t get permission to CCW a firearm, unless in the line of some sort of duty, we don`t really need all that type of training.

So, as mentioned in the beginning, I go to the range twice per month in average (at least once per month).
As you can see on the pic, the targets are fixed at a distance of 25 meters (don`t ask what that is in yards or feet, I don`t have a clue).
Most shooting ranges don`t like you to do combat type shooting training, so we are stuck to the static shooting at a fixed distance.

In average I shoot 50 to 100 rounds per visit, otherwise my wife will kill me, due to the ammo cost. (I guess money isn`t so loose anymore, since we have the flipping Euro). Also since I only have one pistol, my CZ75 in 9mm, there is no need to change weapons.

I don`t really have a training routine like you guys, but I think I will have to set myself one up to improve my shooting somhow.

25 meters is about 82 ft. Too many years of using Army maps, still tend to think in meters and "Klicks". What part of Germany?

I go to the shooting range once a month if I can. All my handgun shooting is slow fire shooting (since I'm handicapped) @25m (25m=28yrds. or 82ft.) Shoot about 50 rounds of 9mm with the Star, and 50 rounds of .22lr with the Walther PP, sometimes when my uncle shows on the range I shoot up to 100 rounds of 9mm with a Glock 17 or a Glock 19 (from my aunt) and 50 rounds of .40S&W with a Beretta Cougar 8040 (I love this gun), my uncle is a proeficient reloader so he let me spend some extra ammo I shoot my uncle's CZ .22lr bolt action @ 25m or 50m too.

Jeez, I wish I had that type of money! I tend to shoot a lot of .22 pistol at 25 yards. Maybe 150 rds.

I will bring something bigger along, like a .40, .45, and do a few mags worth. Every once in a while I will grab the .44 or .454, but only tend to do maybe 10or 20 rounds.

Not only does the bigger stuff cost so much, it is actually getting harder to FIND any of it to buy! Wally world's shelves are pretty empty.

I go to an indoor pistol range about twice a month. I shoot 9mm, 40 cal, .357 mag and 45 cal. I shoot about 50 rounds in each caliber at a range of 10 feet to 30 feet as I practice defensive shooting for the most part and believe if the issue arises that will be the distance of the bad guy. When the weather is good I go to an outdoor range for riles about twice a month and shoot at 100 and 150 yards with a mini 14, AR15 and a 300 WSM.

Indoors I shoot 50 rounds through each gun I have with me. This is usually a Colt .357 (with .38s) , an Anaconda, and a .45 Commander. If I bring a .22 then another 100 rounds thru it.

Outdoors with centerfire rifles is usually a box of reloads per gun. If I'm cleaning the gun afterwards I'm shooting it a bit.
