What do you do with your guns?

Do you go to the 100yd range and punch paper? Are you into reloading/gunsmithing? Done any competitions? Hunting?

I personally shoot USPSA,Shoot bullseye competitions,Reload,Cast my own bullets,and 3 gun competitions.

Hunting is the next thing on my list to get into.

Not much of a collector.

I almost consider reloading/casting to be a completely separate hobby and really enjoy doing it(almost as much as shooting). I started because shooting USPSA is not cheap and by casting my own bullets from wheel weight lead I reload 1000rds of 9mm for about $35.

I just recently started .223 after reloading probably 20,000 pistol rounds. Finding powder is a nightmare right now.

My Ride: What else?
Between the ammo scarcity and me moving across the country, not much. I did sit around and fondle my DDM4 for about 10 mins yesterday.

I hunt once or twice a year (deer)

I destroy pieces of paper once a month with my Browning HP.

I want to start shooting clay with my Valmet a bit more often.

I tpically shoot paper targets with my pistol, but there are steel targets at about 50 yards. I attempt that once in a while too. I need to get spec'd out at the walls of steel so I can start that soon. Tried it and liked it. As for the AR, at this point, just paper targets at 100 yards so far. I do regularly shoot skeet. I entered a league for the first time this past Spring and won a trphly for High Handicap I have also tried 5 Stand and Sporting Clays.

What do you do with your guns?

I kill paper with my vintage military rifles. I normally shoot at 200yds.
Model 91 Argentine Muaser
03A3 Springfield 30.06
M1 Garand 30.06
SKS

I live on some land - about 14 acres +/- We made a dueling tree down at our range in the back of the property that has proven to be a very worth while addition. You get to spend so much more time behind the gun and your trips down range get cut down significantly. When I'm not slapping steel, I really enjoy having a bunch of friends over with a few boxes of clays and shells and spend the afternoon shooting skeet. We can stretch the range to about 200yds if we feel the need for some rifle fun

I work from home and have a second master suite set up as a home office. It's like half of our upstairs. When I get bored I shoot sh1t with my .22 from the bathroom window. I have a few targets and golf balls set up about 70 yards away. That's 90% of my shooting. I'll occasionally take out my 30.06 deer rifle or Mini 14 to shoot stuff outside. Other than that it's the rare shooting session on BLM land with a brother in law. I've also been deer hunting once, but didn't actually fire a gun, so that doesn't really count.

I also will take out my pellet rifle once a month or so to dispatch small varmint. Like if my jack russell corners a tree rat or rock chuck somewhere.
