    I don't go enough. It gets expensive having to buy the range ammo. I get free gun rentals but I have to use the ammo they sell. Once I get my own gun and can use my own ammo I'll go a lot more.

    some are better than others. ammoman is pretty good and has free shipping (or shipping included in the price).

    i've also found good results from outdoor marksman and sportsmans guide

    Like 2-3 times a year, I'm so lazy to get all my shit together to go out there then come back and clean guns for a couple of hours, especially long guns.

    Not yet. I plan on starting IDPA, SSR division in a couple weeks.

    Really, I just don't have much else to do besides work. I bought a membership at creekside, so I try to get my money's worth out of it. I'm just shooting .38 right now (probably do .40 in the near future), have bought two good sized batches of ammo from Wamlart and Dick's, and I'll be reloading the brass from that. That keeps expenses down.

    Maybe I don't go through as much ammo; each trip is usually between 100-300 rounds :dunno:

    Once I quit drinking, I found I had a lot more time and money on my hands. Hey, who knew? :hs:

    I've been trying to get to the range at least 1-2 times a week. I'm really enjoying shooting but don't like the cost of ammo.

    I've been picking up my ammo at either WalMart or Academy Sports. The price is about a dollar different with Academy being less.

    I haven't been in over a month. But I guess I dumped enough ammo the last time to make up for it.
