Most time Behind the trigger

    Thanks to the ammo prices and the few ranges available I'd say most trigger time BY FAR is in .22LR guns. The ones I usually take shooting are: Ruger Target MkIII, Ruger Single Six, CZ-455FS & 452 Trainer and Zastava Precision Mannlicher.

    Center fire guns might be used once a month. Most of the times I take a surplus '98 Mauser (Either FN 1935 or a 1908) and my CCW, a .380ACP CZ-83, all depending on the range installations.

    Let me be more specific.  By round count AND trigger time AND carry time......... 1911s by a HUGE margin 😁

    Earlier I said 870 Wingmaster shooting clay birds but the more I think about it it was this Ruger Single Six. As a kid growing up in the woods around Lake Texoma there wasn’t a safe snake, can or bottle in sight. Dad got me a quality leather holster for it at the big Arms Collector show at Market Hall in Dallas when I was 9 years old and the rest was history. I would say a conservative round count of 8,000 - 10,000 would be close. By far my favorite possession. Cherished.

    I think maybe my third most would have to be my marlin 795 .22.  I put a lot of rounds through that little gun when I first started competing.  Did pretty well with for a 135 dollar gun vs all the highly modified 10/22 costing 7 or 8 times as much.  I still shoot it once in a while if I want to shoot irons.

    By round count it would have to be the M-134 mini, although my S&W 39-2
    gets the most range time

    Trigger time and rounds downrange would be pretty close for a tie between the Mossberg 500 series and S&W N frames. 

    Carry time would be the 1911 but the SR9c is going to catch up.

    For sheer number of rounds fired that would be .22LR from single shot, bolt action, pump, lever, and semi auto rifles. Second, and not by much would be 12 and 20 gauge shotguns of double barrel, pump, and semiauto variety. Coming in dead last would be any pistols of any caliber. 
    .22 LR has always been the cheapest to shoot, and that is why it's the one I shot the most. No real deer population here growing up, but lots of wing shooting and I shot and reloaded thousands of rounds of shotshell. Centerfire rifle was mostly milsurps because the ammo at the time was dirt cheap, and so were the rifles. Pistol ammo was high priced, and the one I shot  the most was .45 ACP from a WWII vintage 1911 at bowling pin shoots, and I reloaded all my own ammo. Reloading my own was the only way I could afford to practice.

    Round count and time spent using, Glocks by a wide margin. 

    Then ARs

    Then revolvers and 1911s.  When I really get into my 25 yard handgun target stuff, I spend a lot of time with revolvers and single shots. 

    Bolt guns and shotguns are probably my least used. I've used shotguns some in training.  But other than that, bolt guns and shotguns I pretty much only get out and use when I need one.  Mostly for load work, hunting or a rare trip to the trap club. I like them. But I don't claim to be a rifleman or shotgunner.
