Default How often do you practice?

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!
  • Daystate MK4 (No electrocutions yet ) GC laminate stock w/ Leupold comp. 45
  • Daystate MK4 TH (Still no electrocutions ) w/Hawke Panorama 3-12 40
Slowly working my way through every conceivable way to miss tin chickens!

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

Looks like he's gone mate?
Let your shooting do the talking.
It's not the aim and release that decided the shot, it's the preparations.
