Thread: How OFten do u all practice ?

    We have a good sized chunk of land backed up to miles of BLM land and I shoot some most days. I should build a real range, but just have various targets around right now.

We should close on the property at the end of June, so the lead should be flying forthwith! Any pointers or helpful tips are appreciated (like what to use as a backstop to catch the lead in the barn).[/QUOTE

    You and Festus are very fortunate to have those facilities. Man, it's sooo COOOL to have your own Range!

    JJ, are you going to set up a reloading station in the barn too? Get a nice recliner, 32" Flat screen, refrigerator, nice humidor full of Dominicans, some heat, and you're all set!!! Sorta like my garage, but bigger!!!!!! LOL!!!
    Hmmm...the possibilities are endless. Imagine the "man cave" of all man caves: range, reloading station, TV, cigars, woodstove, fridge. Now, we're tallking!

    Some "Chicks" would really like that cave too. Can I come over too?

    Yeah, I suppose we'd have to have "Women's Night" every once in awhile. Hey, I'm liberated... What kind of cigars do you like?

    Itís not about the quantity of ammo; it is all about the QUALITY of the practice. Just burning ammo down range may or may not help you improve. If you have developed bad habits, poor trigger control and a sloppy sight picture, large quantities of ammo just reinforce those bad habits.

    Dry firing and empty practice drills (draws to dry fire, trigger reset, reloads, rap,tap,bang drills ect) will greatly enhance your live fire drills.

    That said, I practice drills 3 times weekly and fire 200 rounds a week on the range with my carry 1911. A great way to really tune pistols skills, shoot tin cans at 30 to 35 yards. You wonít double tap, but it is a fun way to learn where your gun shoots at different distances, it also teaches a good solid sight picture and trigger control. Another great target for field shooting is golf balls. I also shoot 1000 or so rounds out of a .22LR a month, I have always believed that rim fire shooting is the best all around practice you can get, and the price cannot be beat.

    Get a decent progressive loader and you'll shoot big bores a bunch cheaper.

    I help out at a cigar store once in a while. There are women that come in and buy cigars to smoke, not give away. You'd be surprised how many women smoke them. Mostly, they like the flavored ones.

    I don't smoke them, but at your cave I don't care if you do. Just have fun!

    We average about every 3 weeks! I'd go every weekend if the $$ were there to spend on it!

    At least once a week, and twice on Sundays!

    I try to go once a month, and fire about 100 rounds, Strong, Weak, Supported, unsupported, finish up with slow tight groups
    But my left eye has lost its master vision and trying to NOT shoot cross dominant is rough.
    If anyone has some good pointers I'm open to them.
