I shoot every weekend. I am luck to have a wonderful understanding wife that lets me go have my day, and many times actualy comes with me, and shoots as well. We do not have any children so there is no family neglected on that part. I have limited funds, and ton of bills to pay. I cut cost where I can. I cast lead, and reload most of my practice ammo. I pay for a yearly membership at the range.
When funds were even tighter, and I lived too far from the range to grequent it as much as I do now. I shot air rifle, and archery. I also did draw, and fire practice with an air pistol that is the same size, and shape as the gun that I carried at that time.
No matter how many times you do it and nothing happens it only takes something going wrong one time to kill you.
