How often do you shoot?


Recommended Posts

I go to practice once a week (we have a regularly scheduled practice on Tuesday nights in Baton Rouge if anyone is close) and usually have a local match on the weekend that I consider practice. Trying to mix dry fire into that as well.

Shot my first steel match in August. Later discovered uspsa. Never looked back. Still Unclassified and just switched to CO so will be a U for a while. Seem to be about low B class. 

Live fire practice 3 weekends a month~300rnds ea. 1 match a month. Dryfire 5x week mainly speed stuff and driving down par times. Live fire is 95% drills. Pretty much zero mini stages, theres too much going on for me to notice simple but costly mistakes.

I try to live fire 2x a week. usually 2-300 rounds per session. I am involved with a  group of guys that love to shoot steel

and we have our own targets that we are allowed to set up at our range , so we end up shooting steel challenge stages a lot more often than I like.

only 2 of us in the group shoot USPSA , so  doing Bill drills or double tap drills is like pulling teeth with those that don't shoot USPSA.

Shooting steel stages is always fun , but it's a completely different  game.

So this season I'm focusing on  doing a lot more dry firing drills and seeing how that helps , finding time to go out 

and focus on USPSA specific drills has been tough this year so far :(

I try to go to the range every Fri during lunch, but usually comes out to every other Fri. If I skip the live fire, I'll atleast dry fire that week. While I love shooting with my friends, I find I train a lot better either by myself or with one other guy who has same training mindset

While I worked it was one practice a week of 250 to 300 rounds, and dry fire two or three times in the same period. Matches (USPSA) two to three times a month.

 

I'm retired now. Practice is three or four times a week, 200 top 300 rounds, very little dry fire. Matches two to four times a month.

 

i hold an A card, have for years. With more practice I have gotten more consistent in matches and classifier scores (though ironically my percentages have dropped because previously I'd have rare good scores mixed in with a zillion low scores that would get thrown out, leaving the anomalous highs in my best six for long times, now most of my scores are within the A range).

 

I'm not so sure that a lot less dry fire is a good thing...

I'm committed to six matches per month through mid-October.  After that I might change which matches I shoot but that frequency should remain sustainable.  This doesn't count live fire practice, which for me varies quite a bit as far as frequency.  Dry fire is a daily thing.
