    Usually 3. I am a member at a private range where we can shoot paper to 300 and steel from 400 to 600. Always enjoy meeting like minded people and don't have to put up with the sometimes dangerous general public at the public ranges.

    Usually 2-3 make the trip, rarely more than 5.

    Being as I live in Houston, it is a bit of a drive (~75 minutes each way) so I generally carry 3-5.

    Especially during the hot months (which is a good bit of the year!) I tend to take more so by the time I cycle through, the first barrel is sorta cooled.

    5 to 7 . This gives some time to cool off and you can still shoot

    Usually 2 or 3 rifles and as many pistols. Cycle through them while letting barrels cool.

    I once made the mistake of bringing almost all to the range . . . . .NEVER AGAIN!!!

    Took two days to clean them all! (Canít abide a dirty firearm!)

    Now take a maximum of TWO!

    Usually 2-3, depending on my timeframe and goals. I almost always bring a rimfire since I am way better at letting barrels cool if I can entertain myself with that.

    Rimfires are great to have on hand when waiting on a hot pipe.
    Pistola is a given since I carry, and at least one of my RRA's
    go also.

    Usually at least my P226 on my person, and 1-2 long guns. I live close to my range, so I try and keep the packing and cleaning to a minimum when I can go any time I want.

    1 gun to shoot. The 2nd goes down range , just encase someone tries to steal the other one on the bench.

    State Range- Guy shooting alone. Checks target at 100 yards. While down range, a guy comes up over the bank, grabs rifle and jumps into waiting car below.

    I take 1 handgun and 1 rifle, or just 1 and do I thing at the range.

    I shot next to a younger gentleman who brought his family (mother, girl friend) etc, he brought 13 plus weapons with drum mags etc, he was the probably the entire day, my buddy and I had fun shooting some of his guns.

    Yeap, left magazines, left ammo, left targets, heck I left my range access key card at home and home is 25 miles one way :-)
