    As per title how often do you practice?

    I never seem to find any time in which to fire off a few pellets other than when I'm on the plinking range before a competition which I can only assume is impacting my scores in a rather negative way!

    I used to practice 7days a week, but since A really bad fall last year, I've not been able to put in the effort needed...

    I practice outdoor stuff like HFT and FT usually once a week, sometimes twice, and I practice indoor stuff like bench rest and LSR every Wednesday and every other Friday.

    Most days of the week I will pick up my LSR rifle and just practice my posture and dry firing technique.

    Once or twice a week.

    As comp season approaching, try to get a few hours in on a weekend day. Even a spare half hour is handy, as the lighter nights are approaching, find a cheeky 1/2 hour of standers and kneelers is good fun and much required practice :)

    I generally shoot a 40 shot course on a Sunday at the club and occasionally have a few shots on my home range, usually a few standers and a bit of bench testing to check the rig out before a weekend shoot.

    Damn, missed the irresponsible posting :)

    When I was staying over in Manchester for work I was practicing 3 times a week indoors and I can't help but feel that initially improved my scores at comps. Just can't find the spare time to get down to the range over the winter months.

    Roll on summer so I can get out in the evenings
