I really wish people would pack out what they pack in. I don't care if it's trash or spent brass. That is one way to get everything shut down quick. People are stupid!!
There was a place tight against I-80 about 20 miles east of Reno where people shot for years and years. There was always a big mess o' trash there. Then one day the gate across the place was locked; that was maybe eight or nine years ago. Ain't been opened since...

Copy and Paste these coordinates into GoogleEarth: 39 35 25.24N 119 25 43.62W and you'll see how close along I-80 it was. I think the Nevada Highway Patrol wanted it closed because all it would take is for one numbskull to start shooting at cars as they drove by the place. Given how little today's kids are taught about personal responsibility, it's not an outrageous idea to believe something like that could happen...

How many rounds per caliber or firearm type do you wind up actually shooting each year? The last few years have been pretty pitiful for me.

Rifle: ~400 not counting 22
Pistol: ~600
Shotgun: ~350
WOW! That is a pretty hard Question. Here in Arizona there is three months no one goes outside but to work. During those 3 months I reload and have 4 presses a Dillion, a Lee, and 2 RCBS.. 9 mm I load about 1,000 rounds .357 around 400, .45, I'm covered, the wife got me a case at Christmas, 7.62 x 39 have only loaded 20 rounds in the 15 years I have had the dies. Though the days of 1,400 rounds for $75 are long gone it's still cheaper buying them by the case. .308, 30/06 and other rifle cartridges I load on single stage presses and take my time. Shotgun I buy them as I need them. With all this data I still don't have a clue on how much I shoot. Plus my grandson can real go through the rounds.

Never enough. I reload every caliber I shoot and where we shoot we have picked up thousands of brass cases, even 7.62 x 39 and that brass is a buck a round. With the price of powder and even primers there isn't much savings any more. but it's still better than the ammo out there that hasn't enough powder to kick the brass out of the weapon. As is I still end up buying 4 or 5 cases of Russian steel cased 30/06, 308, and 7.62 x 39. If that piece of dog lawn décor biden gets his way we may not have to worry about it any more. And since I'm here When guns are out lawed I will be an outlaw.

It seems that God finally gave up on us and we are on our own. Which founder said the Second Amendment was to protect us from our own government? Every one of them said it. Since Bill and Hillary murdered near 100 men, women, and small children in the 'accidental fire' and machine gunning Did they ever find those illegal firearms or that Meth Lab Bill and Hillary used to pull in Delta Force to help with his genocide? The few that were still alive are all serving their life in prison That is when I decided I will never disarm or have a gun pulled from the cold dead hand especially to lying Socialist whos agenda is the same as all tyrants who can't reach their full underhand evil way as tyrants with an armed population. That's also the day I realized I wouldn't have much of a chance of dying of old age.

I have the Constitution on my side, I have Right on my side, and every American worth his salt on my side. On Harris now hunting us down and make us pay for supporting Trump, that goes for all democRats. so hurry and crawl under those rocks. They all put their pants on one leg at a time. Harris said she will now hunt us down and make us pay for supporting Trump. These democRats started this civil war years ago when they used lies, false evidence lying documents to over through the government with out one of these traitors serving 1 minute behind bars when half of them should have rotted from their ropes by now. I would chose this path if I were the only one going that way. But these tyrants go too far. We are not British or from down under. We are Americans and no longer is stupid an excuse We use it or we will lose it. I have something for that bullet magnet Beto too. GIVE ME LIBERTY OR I'LL KILL YA TILL YOU'RE DEAD

Since Covid hit not much! I used to shoot a couple matches a month. Probably 2000 a year for pistol ammo.
Match ammo for the rifle about 1200 a year. Centerfire rifle hunting less than 20 a year.
But Rimfire....5000 to 10000 a year shooting ground squirrels!
Even with Covid and all the thick smoke this year I still shot a full case of 22lr and 17 HMR.
Most days I was out shooting all alone! Almost no one out shooting varmints this year!

How many of you actually hit the target when shooting that many rounds ? :rolleyes:
I would think the more you shoot the better you get at it! I know its been that way for me!
I doubt most just sit and dump rounds. If you only shot one match a month , with a 100 round match that would be 1200 rounds a year just in match rounds. Then there is practice and test rounds.......
I shoot a lot of ground squirrels. If I just shot 20 rounds a day that would be 7200 rounds a year. Some days I shoot a lot more than that, Some days I take off. But it averages a case or two a year.

Now if the grandkids want to shoot squirrels... the round count goes up! [ not necessarily the hit count]. Or if they want to carve pumpkins with their 22's. But even they are getting better at it! The 10 year old hits more than she misses now. The three older ones don't miss much! DR

I'd heard that dimbulb from Queens or the Bronx (or wherever) was the bravo-itch making-up a list of super-supporters of Trump, such list to be used to deny those supporters future employment. If that isn't ripe for an avalanche of lawsuits, I don't know what is. I predict it will not take awfully long for the American People to realize the error they made on Election Day. We (excluding myself) elected the most stupid man in politics and the most wacko, crazy, radical leftist in the Senate to helm the country. It's going to be great fun to watch the cheering fools who support these two blatant idiots realize their Liberties are being stolen from them.
