    If you want to be really good, every day. If you want to just maintain, once a month.

        Then don't go at all. I used to go every single day back when I was going to community college and working part time.

          I go twice per month 100rds per trip with the carry gun. More than adequate

          Okay

        I got a $20 a month membership to an absolute dogshit range, but its close by and I get a free hour to shoot a day. Buy a .22lr and a case of decent .22lr; you can shoot for about $170 a month every day 100 rounds.

        Only buy 9mm and .22LR and ignore everything else to maximize savings

        Any cartridge other than those two is for rich people

          Can I bring a BB gun to the range?

            bb guns are even better since you can just shoot those in your average suburban back yard for FREE

    If you want to be proficient I'd say no less than twice a week. Just to stay on top of your shooting I's say no less than twice a month. The range I usually go to is only $20 for the day but some places have memberships that are well worth the money if you have the ammo and desire to go often.

    twice a month is fine assuming you have a fried to shoot with and both of you aren't just unloading on paper brainlessly.

    At least every other month, preferably twice a month

    I shoot like 3-6 times a year. You can practice a lot of stuff like sight picture, drawing, and remedial action without actual firing.

    Also people have different standards of what "good" is. If you wanna be a competition shooter then yeah you'll probably need to shoot weekly or at least bi-monthly. However if you just wanna maintain a basic standard of competence in self defense you can get by on a lot less.

    It sucks that you can't just join the army and shoot at the range as much as you want, no matter how much you tell them you want to "practice your marksmanship skills".

    Ideally you want to set up a tent at the firing line so you can shoot everyday, 24/7. You must live and breathe the gun. I've personally been camping at my local indoor gun range with a collection of other patrons. We even got a campfire going for warmth and cooking. Unfortunately, sometimes we are attacked at night time by the range goblins. I still remember Jim's screams as he was raped to death. I'm hoping to one day find love on the firing line, and perhaps start a family that will inherit my range tent

    If you need to ask, "how often should I-", take a step back and try to look inward, figure out if you're going to the range for you, or if you're going to the range for some other reason, like feeling that you need to prove yourself to someone.

    The only answer is you go to the range when you feel like it and can afford it. Don't let others dictate it for you, or you will find that what was once fun has become a chore and you just want to be done with it.

    go into the woods with guns, drink a bunch of beers, and shoot the empty cans at varying distances

    you shouldn’t need to know exactly how far your target is to hit it, you should be able to gauge it unconsciously, so practice that ability with an object at known size (beer cans)
    you want to be able to shoot in any physical condition, so doing it while inebriated is going to help. imagine getting good at shooting drunk and then trying it sober. thats only sort of a joke. the only times i’ve considered shooting someone is in town on a night out but it has happened multiple times to the point where i have called the cops multiple times. that has only happened like once a year. this is especially true if your police departments are as shitty or nonexistent as mine.

    obviously don’t do this in an area where you are going to be dealing with other people. you don’t want to be caught boozed up with a gun, but you want to be able to shoot a gun in any state of mind.

    even better is to start hunting. if you can shoot a bird with a handgun the second you see it you will be able to beat any shooter that practices their isometric pose or whatever at 20 yards every time. hitting your target should be more instinctual than anything else, but still learn the basics of shooting that all pros use if you want to be good

    i know i sound moronic but i am right. actual physical practice against animals or beer cans at distances you don’t know beforehand are going to neg you higher results than people practicing at consistent known distances. still, learn the basics of shooting and don’t build bad habits

    >the range
    An indoor range that doesn't let you draw from the holster or do failure drills? Never, this is a place for day 1 safety skills and function testing guns. Once tiu advance beyond your first day of safety skills 101 you should never be loading a gun from a table and firing at a boomer friendly pace, the rules prevent you from the ability to develop further skills.

    Once you have basic safety down and know your gun works, do not go to noob ranges. Take gun skills courses and learn what training actually is, then you can do it on your own in a safe location outdoors. You can build target stands out of PVC pipe or hammer stand stakes into the ground to set up a temporary range. Find where that's legal and has a great backstop.

    why bother, just shoot an air rifle in your backyard at that point. make a weekly trip to the nearest 500+ yard outdoor range.

    • 4 weeks ago
      Anonymous

      I take my air rifle to the local open range's 25 and 50 yard bays because my back yard is just barely 10yd and that isn't realistic for blasting pigeons.

      I can't target shoot worth a shit, too shaky and I've always been that way.
      After sighting in for 25 yds I shot the red nozzle cap off of an empty paint can at 30 yards, not bad for a cheap Gamo with a cheap sight and cheap gamo Red Fire! .22 ammo.

        big inhale, complete exhale but don't force it, hold and squeeze

        Once a month is a good standard. I usually shoot about 200 rounds. 100 per my two carry pistols.

        >indoor bad
        Why? There is are a litany of things you can practice at an indoor. Like, everything from point accuracy w/ pistol out to 25 yrds, Mozambique drills, double taps, mag changes, you can have a buddy sneak snap-caps into your mags so you can practice your immediate action drills.

        ALSO, if you become a regular the staff will generally give you leeway for things like rapid fire and drawing from holster. My local range is part of a huge corporate outfit and they let me do essentially whatever I want so long as its not busy.

        indoor ranges are turbo homosexual they can't have my money. shooting guns is an outdoor activity it's unnatural.

          I wish it was that easy.

          I must have some latent, mild undiagnosed epilepsy or something because it takes a 90+% mental and physical effort tostay steady and make a true aim shot.
          The correct breathing exercises, posture, form, training etc has never made a difference and I've been shooting for more than 12 years.
          Been shakey since I was a kid, that's all it is.

          picrel:
          >sighting in 15 yards - first ten shots were the wide spread, 2nd ten shots were ALL in the middle zone, not adjusted
          >the 2nd set I focused EXTREMELY hard, used all my body's strength, tried as hard as I possibly could

          >2nd pic - 25 yds with better ammo
          And shortly after I dinged the spray nozzle off a paint can at 30 yards, first try no effort, swung into my scope's cross and went for it like it was as easy as walking.
          I just can't target shoot worth a shit. Physically can't hold a steady zero. I can aim for a target and make almost any shot, but sitting still and doing tight group on paper practice is impossible.

          Way back inna day I had a cheap Mosin. I could barely get 5 inch MOA with it. My dad comes down to visit, doesn't even try and got a 2.5 inch spread just fricking around.
          I have epilepsy or something.

            So if I put a coffee can up 200 yards away you can draw up on it all shaky and jerk the trigger when the reticle crosses over and somehow still hit it? Sweet. I always shoot stuff like that, never groups on paper. It's more real. I'm kinda shaky but the breath control works well for me.

              I can hit flying birds with a thrown rock but can't come anywhere close to hitting a bucket or trash can 60 feet away.

              So yes, that is what it is.
