    When I go to the range I usually bring 3 guns. I'm wondering what others do.

    No more then I want to clean. Normally if I am on one range its 2-3.

    If it is just me , then one.
    When going with friends or showing someone who is new to guns how to shoot , then 2-4.

    Really depends on what I'm going for and how much time I have. If I'm practicing with my carry gun, then it's usually the only one I take. If I'm not pressed for time and want to do more, then it's probably in the 3-4 range.

    On average two. There will be days I want to only work one gun/caliber. I might have got extra ammo in the closet, or haven't shot a certain one for a while. Then some times three including running a few the the carry gun.

    Well, I technically only bring 3, but if I had more lowers it would be more. But then again I never really clean my guns too so YMMV.

    Two: either my revolver or 10/22 to work on basic marksmanship and my XDm to work on competition skills.

    I'll take 1 or 2 to dial in and I have to take a couple 22s to have fun with.
    I may not get to all I bring but I take them anyway

    2-4. It depends on how long its been since Ive been out shooting.

    If its been a while I take more out to get that range fix. Usually shooting just for fun. If Ive gone every weekend of the month I bring it down to just 2, usually a pistol and a rifle and I focus on skill.

    Depends, if i'm planning on hitting the main range, then its 1 or 2 long guns and maybe the No Name.
    If its the north range, its the benelli and 3-4 handguns, Or maybe just 22s.

    It seems I don't get out to the range for fun anymore. I always have works to do like sighting this scope, readjusting those iron sights, testing out this load, etc. In which case I bring only the 3 or 4 guns that need work.

    For fun I compete. On those days I only bring one.

    I voted for 4.

    I usually want to bring them all until I look at my ammo supply and think about the time to clean them and I reconsider.
    I said in the survey 4 guns.
    I always take a pistol to shoot and one to keep in the holster for back up/protection
    And then usually an AR15 and a .22 rifle for fun.

    Sometimes I'll bring the hunting rifle, but I usually make a special trip for for rifle shooting from 100yds and out:

    Need a sliding range. I seldom take just one or two. More often, I take 3, and if I'm bringing someone, I'll take 5-7 (rifles, ARs, pistols, shotguns). For me, there's no such thing as a 'quickie' when it comes to range time.

    Depends on if I have customer guns to be test fired.

    If it's just mine, between 3 and 7, one of which is always loaded and in its holster. Lessons learned from the Miami shootout.

    1-5

    Depends if I'm just plinking or working in accuracy. If I'm doing accuracy shooting it's 1. If I'm having fun blowing through my kids inheritance then it's as many as I have cases for and time.

    4 is the number I would normally bring were I to visit a range often! I have my own range at home, so numbers don't matter then! If I am hunting prairie dawgs or rats, then I have a few Rifles with me for that ( that's my range time) The rest of the time, I am usually just working in load development and may only have ONE with me at a time! I do carry a high power rifle and pistol at all times living in BIG BEAR country!
