It has been over a month now for me, since my last range visit. I found work and have been working 6 days a week and Sundays are my days to recuperate but also due home duties. So hard for me to find time to go shoot. I haven't even shot my new AR! Anyways what's the longest period of time for you guys?

Mid year for about a month.
We were overseas.

Edit: Before that, it was about thirty five years (I've just entered my second childhood).

At times a month or two. Try to get out for a little, even if the conditions aren't good. Like this morning, rain. Going anyway.

Up to a year once, due to a couple of major health issues.

Sometimes a month in really cold weather, but i try to get out and shoot at least every other week. In good weather i sometimes go shooting three times in a week. The range at my club is sheltered so rain is not an issue, it is actually pleasant shooting there in the rain with electronic ear protection that amplifies the sound of the rain.

I generally go twice per week, so it's rarely more then a few days in between range sessions.

Only manage once a month in decent weather normally, and with this economy I've had to skip some. Only went five times this year.

I went five years during the time we lived in South Florida. I sold all of my guns except one when we moved there. I got back into shooting again when we moved back to Oregon. My safe is now full and I need another one.

Hate to rub it in but, when I feel the urge to shoot, I step out my back door. I have the capability to shoot 100 yrds in my back yard. I shoot the "big" guns 2 or 3 times a week. Usually shoot my 10/22 every day. I haven't been to a "range" in years....

You have me beat by a few years.
In my case, my last prior visit to the range was in 1977. Then this year I took my Ruger Mark I out of the closet, bought a box of ammo and went back to the same range... so 35 years between visits.

This year the longest time between range visits was 2 months due to surgery and recuperation downtime.:(

I try to shoot rim-fire weekly 'cause I can shoot at home. Center fire is more difficult 'cause I'm 20 miles from the nearest range, so once every couple months.

Longest time was probably around 3 weeks.

Work responsibilities, family things and the familiar rising cost of ammo tend to interfere with my range visits these days.

Lately it's been about 3-4 weeks between outings. I hate it too :mad:
