    How often do you practice ?

    I'm still trying to secure a spot on a beginners course and it's proving harder than I thought !
    I' would ultimately like to be able to compete at a decent level I suppose, but I work shifts and therefore would miss a lot of the set practice evenings and occaionally weekends.
    How often does the average club competitor practice each week ?
    I may have to look for a club that has it's own range and not just one that has the use of an area a couple of times a week !
    Any comments appreciated - thanks !

    We have our own ground, & therefore can shoot 24/7 if we want to !!!. I'm usually at the club about 5 to 6 days a week at this time of year. I usually shoot about 2 to 3 times a week, rest of the time helping the youngters and doing odd jobs etc.

    Anywhere from twice a week to once a day if I can manage it. The most I've gone without a chance to shoot is two weeks and it drove me nuts. As for shift work, you'll definitely benefit from a club with its own range - depending on the club/gnas rules you'll be able to shoot pretty much whenever you can.

    Once a week isnt enough, but its just for fun.

    People who started a similar time to me and shoot 2-3 times a week are soooo much better after a year.

    4 or 5 times a week at the club. No wonder the strings wear out.
