When I first got back into guns after moving home, I would shoot 200-300 in a give range session, and maybe 2-3 times a month. Then there are training days that 400-600 rifle and/or pistol wasn't uncommon. Now, I sort of cringe at even the thought of shooting 300 rifle. Pistol, I'm better off, but rifle ammo supply does concern me. I mean I have a "decent" amount, but a 500 round range day def puts a dent. . .
That also ups the cost. So if class is $200 and ammo is $400, that's a $600 class. Where it used to be a $300 class pre COVID.
Then you have couples so X2 on the cost of everything.
Mrs.CMO is going to CO next week and taking 5 classes. She plans on shooting about 1200 of 9mm total. But luckily, she was able to order online and more reasonable prices and have the ammo shipped to the range in CO, whom are holding it for her and all the other attendees. The luxury of not having to pay hazmat.
Some classes she signed up for are: CCW defense, vehicle pistol defense, and I can't remember the rest.
