Yeah, practice does necessarily make perfect; it just makes permanent.

I've been trying to follow this rule with my handgun shooting practice. Somewhere I read "practice doesn't necessarily make perfect--perfect practice makes perfect." There's no point in practicing sloppy shooting, whether it's with a gun or with a basketball.

That's a problem currently, yes.  22 ammo used to be <5 cents/rd and are now 8-10 cents.  9mm, .40, .45, etc are much more expensive now - 20-35 cents a round.

I can get a box of 50 9mm bullets for about 14 bucks. Lately, because I'm trying to focus on doing everything exactly right, shooting half a box of bullets is plenty for me and takes about a half hour (taking breaks between shots/magazines). So it's not horribly expensive and it's fun.

WWB (100 rounds) of 9mm or .40 cal used to be $10-12 bucks at Walmarts. Now they are in the $30'ish range. frown.gif

Nope. That's why when the zombeez come you always make sure you save the last bullet for yourself.

Shooting ranges. I understand the necessity, but it kinda takes the fun out of it. At my brother's place we shoot off the back porch! icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Nonsense.  Only headshots count with zombies.  Double tap won't save you.

I love to head up in the hills and shoot clays all day long, but when it's dark and raining, the indoor range with its fancy-schmancy target carriers and excellent ventilation systems is a pretty good way to go.
