      I thought I would shoot a lot when I was saving for my first gun, but once I owned guns I stopped caring. I still appreciate them technically, but the act of shooting gets boring quick and organizing a trip is just a burden. It was fun to magdump an AR once, but then every consecutive mag made me acutely aware of the cost per round I was burning through.

            All I shoot now is an ar. If that gets boring for you maybe try competing. Pushing the distance can also be challenging. Known target/unknown distance is still king.

              Not really. If you have 50/200 yard zero and can consistently hit in the 0-300 yard range, it's all just put it center mass for any of the tactical competitions. Those rarely go over 100 yards for any shot and almost all are cqb distances under 50 yards. Tactical competitions are all about technique and weapon manipulation.

              If long distance, stationary shooting, it's long boring event my OCD won't let me sit through. As long as rifle is properly zeroed and don't jerk off your trigger, basic b***h irons are fine. Most of the people with high powered scopes are just casuals that cant figure out guessing distances by object height ratios so think it's magic to do memorize precalculated algebra and trigonometry for key distances.

          Dem strategy, price people out of guns and shooting. Make it prohibitively expensive. Expensive and time consuming permits. The threat of having to get insurance that's expensive as frick has always been pushed. The banning of lead bullets, will make bullets more expensive so peasants won't shoot as much and so on and so on. Their insane plans to tax bullets have already been tried in what was it Washington or Oregon, taxing ffl's forcing them to close etc. They're trying to make it hurt so you don't do it.

            That has nothing to do with ammo prices. Current ammo prices have everything to do with ammo manufacturers refusing to scale up production so they can charge more. It's literally in their financial interest to keep supply limited.

              Most gun companies would never do that, its in their best interest to give us good pricing and service. An industry so tied to its cause would never willing gouge its customers. The firearms indfustry is probably the most consumer friendly (or they would be if not tied down by regulations) and actually looks out for the people buying their products unlike just about every other industry out there. The other anon is right and its legislation that is causing all of these price hikes.

            Factory ammo isn’t even more expensive. The ~~*official*~~ inflation from 2019 to now is 22.6%. Paying 25cpr for 9mm is 31cpr today. 40cpr for 5.56 is 49cpr today. Primers and powder are fricked for reloaders and it drives me nuts, but most factory ammo has kept pace with inflation or slightly behind if anything. The 2017-2018 golden years was from selling off excess built up for the 2016 election. 2020-2021 prices were from the gay overreaction to the coof. Ammo isn’t cheap but it’s not worse than it used to be. The real issue is everything is more expensive and people aren’t being paid more, so ammo comes second to other necessities.

                If you shoot an AK more, you'll complain about the AR's ergos. And vice-versa.
                Put a Holosun on either, and they'll both shoot the same.

                Myself I like to shoot AKs because they take like 2 minutes to clean no matter how hard you beat one.

      >2019 to now
      Well before everything went sky high I remember:
      >9mm as low as 19cpr if not lower, often hovering around 20cpr
      >.223/5.56 often 30-some cpr, about mid 30s
      And
      >The real issue is everything is more expensive and people aren’t being paid more
      So not that I 100% agree or disagree with either of you, there's your biggest issue. Inflation may not mean anything if you get paid more. But if you don't get paid more inflation might as well mean you get paid whatever percent less than you used to which cuts into the budget for something somewhere.

      The market didn't actually jack prices compared to their expenses.

      Be the change you wanna see in the world anon, open up your own fun allowed non fudd range off the beaten path with basic easy to follow rules like don't leave trash laying around before leaving and bring a med kit (yeah you should have your own med kits always on the property too but redundancy isn't bad), then charge a small fee to enter and allow a minimum of two or three (depending on how may lanes you have to spare, how big your property is) to be reserved and rented for a whole day for groups and you can just put some traffic cones down for those range lanes on any given day and store said cones in a shed when not in use.
      Maybe have a student discount for young lads who aren't retired an have hedge funds and several rental properties to fallback on too.
      Also have a website deigned by someone who isn't incompetent, one that is ideally not full of Java script, Facebook and Google shit and load it with all sorts of photo's and videos and geography info to let people know what they're paying for and what to expect.

      Also you could probably get a vending machine with all sorts of yummy healthy snacks and bottled water in them and israelite up the prices by a few dollars if you want since it won't be your fault if the people visiting forgot to bring their own lunch and water. Pic related, these things are fricking delicious and you should add them, also they have no seed oils so add them anon.
      >inb4 why specifically healthy snacks though? Any reason I shouldn't just stuff it with snickers and tasty cakes?
      Do you want someone having a heart attack on your property miles away from a hospital anon?

      All you need is land and a tall berm really, make your dreams come true.

    I shoot on private land in a hay field, so until it gets cut and baled, my rifles are taking a break.
