    You'll find that frequency and style of practice ranges from weekly drills for dedicated citizens to yearly basic qualifications for law enforcement officers.

    There is no standard.

    As time goes on, you'll find that you're confident in your skills and you won't need to burn through as much ammo to practice. You'll be refreshing your skills, not building them.

    This doesn't have to be the case for you. Building skill does not mean blazing through ammo. Simple drills consisting of drawing and aiming can help. I'm sure other threads around the board and other replies here will help give you some more feedback that you're looking for.

    Some may take my statements as an affront to the philosophy of constant self improvement, but I mean no disrespect. I'm just trying to take an objective look at average practices by average handgun owners. Some assumptions are made, but I hope they're not too far off the mark.

    Why do you have a PA permit, when a Florida permit will allow you to carry in PA, and several other states?
    How much is WWB going for these days in Chicago land? 6 boxes at $15.=$90. That is IMO, a waste of ammo.
    However, shoot as much as you want. As Booga stated, its about skill building. I usually go to the range twice a month, and shoot 50 rounds or less.

    I do dry fire drills 2-3 times a week, and go to the range twice a month and fire about 3-4 mags.

    That is doing pretty good. I used to run that many rounds every month, but due to the cost I have only been doing about 150-200 a month! Really sucks! I belong to a conservation club that has a pretty good outdoor range and I do most of my shooting there. I occasionally do some indoor shooting, but I don't like that as much. Easier to pick up brass though!

    I try and get there about once every two weeks, when weather permits.
    I mostly only shoot rifles, and I need to keep my eye and hand working together,
    But sometimes it goes to once a month when we have WEEKS of rain.

    If I don't get there at least once a month, I mostly shoot the same zip code,
    When I'm trying to shoot MOA targets!

    Pistol shooting comes back quicker than rifle shooting does,
    Reflex shooting a pistol, once learned, is mostly muscle memory,
    While rifle shooting is a constantly changing environment and needs to be practiced to hit a 500 yard target.

    If I can get 20 well aimed shots from the .308 a week, my eye, hand & body start working together again,
    If I don't get those 20 rounds every week or so, then the groups start to get bigger and bigger, and if I go a couple of months, I'm lucky to print on the target at all!

    This two weeks has been a total wash out,
    Every time I think I'm getting enough sunshine to get some range practice in, then it rains again before I can get loaded or set up at the range!

    For me, it's a good stress reliever also,
    You can't think about a million other things and do well on the targets, so it's a good way to clear out my head and get down to basic brass tacks to hit anything!
    I always feel much better after a day at the range, or even a couple of hours!

    I dry practice 4 times a week, both left and right handed. I get to the range 2-6 times a month (it's only 5 minutes from my house). I practice at the range with my primary and BUG at least twice a month. The other visits are for pure enjoyment with other guns. I also go to Front Sight a few times a year (4 hours away). This is only possible due to massive amounts of reloading and a wife who enjoys shooting as well.

    I don't get to practice as much as i used to about 50 rounds every 2 months is what i have been trying to do. If i could fire 100 rounds every month i would feel better.

    We have 11 acres in the middle of no where with lots of banks we can shoot in to. I don't practice often enough.
