It depends On my work hours. I work 60-80 hours a week generally So that doesnt leave alot of time for the things I enjoy doin. But me and the wife try to go atleast every 2 weeks.

I practice USPSA style shooting 3-4 days a week but self defense training only about once a month.

I usually get out to the range at least 3 or 4 times a week for personal training. I work on dry fire training, things such as FTF's, admin and speed reloads every day at home at least 20 min. Instructing Concealed pistol classes once a month and training advance techniques keeps me pretty busy.

usually during the summer I try to take at least one formal class myself as a student to keep up with latest techniques and to stay sharp, this year I'll have over 12 taken.

Most people underestimate dry practice at home. If you can spend 20 min a day working on weapons manipulation, you dont have to dedicate much time on the range for it usinglive fire. you can spend you time focusing on movement, cover, recoil managment ect.

I usually make an 8 hour training class per month, sometimes more. That's during the summer, in the winter it winds down a bit and there isn't much offered. I've got a little over 100 hours of professionally taught training under my belt right now, I'll be winding down a bit next year and doing less training, but more advanced and more specialized to my needs.

I also compete in a rifle/handgun match once a month (sometimes don't make it every month) which I also consider training. Sort of like a dress rehearsal, actually...gives me time to put the training to use on my own and see what holes still need to be filled in.

For 'practice' (stuff on my own, without a pro instructor) I try to get 10 or so hours in a week. Mostly dry practice lately as I've been very busy. When I do get to the range I'm typically working on fundamentals. At home I do LOTS of draw stroke practice, dry fire trigger control practice, and transitions from rifle to pistol. I also do a lot of reloads.

Sounds alot like my practice regiment. Plan on slowing down the regular carbine and pistol courses next year. Adding in some shotgun, low/no light, CCS type classes. Im also am talking to LAV and magpul about coming to PRRC for some classes. and I know theres talk of bringing in Pat Rogers into michigan too.

Next year should be fun

I'm about done with carbine and shotgun for the time being. Just going to focus on pistol from here on out, and a LOT of force on force. Want to get some basic FoF in, plus some edged weapons training, and some sims guns training in as well.

I'm going to try and get in on the super Dave class that Tom won at CRC this year...hopefully get an ACTS crew down there to represent.

While my bank account will not be pleased, I'll probably soak up a TON of FoF stuff this winter assuming it's being offered. Looks like MDFI will be putting up at least a few classes now that the sims stuff is here...plus the indoor range is like 10 minutes from house. Finally get to do some training where I DON'T have to drive 2 hours to get there!

I really need to step up the at home practice, too. My pistol skills are getting pretty awful, I've been humping my AR too much and not working with the pistol.

We're talking about bringing up pat rodgers to PRRC next year for a carbine class. Talked to Vickers the other day and we're trying to hash out some dates for him to come in but he's working around his tv show so still in the wind on that one.

whens the super Dave class? pistol or carbine?

I can't believe I am saying this. I kind of wish I were in Michigan. lol.

I had the good fortune to take a 1911 Class with LAV this summer and it was fantastic. He's awesome and I highly recommend him to anyone who has the opportunity. I have watched many hours of the Magpul crew's DVDs but haven't had the chance to take a class with them. Would love it though. Rogers too? You guys really seem to have it going on up there.

I also wanted to comment on how true your statement about how underestimated the value of dry fire practice is. I have noticed a big improvement in my shooting since I started doing it. I don't do it nearly enough either and plan to step it up right a way.
