What do you bring to the range

How many guns and how much ammo do you bring and shoot at the range. Let's stick to handguns and just for yourself. Not for your wife or friends. I'm talking a regular trip not the most pistols ever.

Myself, I always bring one Kimber 45acp, one 9mm 4-4.5" and a subcompact, usually my shield 9mm because I carry it the most.

I shoot between 200-300 rounds.

I used to bring about 6 guns but cut it back because I was getting sloppy after changing guns so much.

Usually the Micro Carry and/or Shield. Always the XDm 5.25". Two boxes of ammo for each MOL.

Always my Micro Carry and Sig.938 my two EDC's. Usually shoot 100 rounds each.
Then I alternate my Beretta PX4 SHTF gun or my Ruger LCP - Quick trip to the store gun or ultra concealment summer gun. Beretta 150-200 rnds. LCP 50-100 rnds.

Favorite fun combo is the Beretta PX4 and Beretta CX4 my end of the world zombie combo. Love it as both take the same mags and I go nuts for about 400-500 rounds.

Usually bring what is in my carry rotation and 100 rds. Then about every 3rd trip I will pull out the Solo and put about 6 mags through it. Now that the range I attend and joined, do to being only 15 min from me, has a cool .22 range only with all steel targets. It is fun to finish off the range trip there with the SR22 pistol.

A Kimber .45 with at least 100 rounds, maybe 200, or a Ruger .22 with 200 or 300 rounds.

It varies, but mostly 2 carry guns and 2 guns in the process of being broken in for sure. 1 or 2 others that I haven't shot in a while and 1 maybe 2 BUGS. For ammo I'll take 50+ loaded magazines of .45, 9mm and .380 for the various guns and I always have a couple of hundred spare rounds in my range bag, now you know why I have a range bag with wheels.

Gone are the days of bringing 5-6 guns with me to the range...

I always take my edc which is my UC Raptor, a 9mm, a revolver and one of my BUG's.{Hey Steve, notice I didn't say BUG guns?}..

I will shoot anywhere between 350-400 rounds which actually goes quicker than you think because I always have 15 mags of 45's & 15 mags of 9mm if I take my Kimber PCII..I have five 15 round mags for my Beretta if I take that...

There all on hand for shooting, range is in the back yard. If I go to a indoor range usually take 2 and my carry.
