You really needed to have planned for this, but in case you didn't, here are some strategies for maintaining your proficiency in the face of gun-ralated shortages. Crank some Foghat, and consider your options:
- Use .22 LR guns. You should have, at the least, one .22 rifle and one .22 pistol. Using them at the range gives you every bit of training except recoil management. .22 will always be more available than centerfire (except 9X23, for some reason, everyone seems to have that caliber about now).
- Use dry firing. Get snap caps for your various calibers. Practice your draw-and-present drills for handguns, your mount-and-fire drills for shoulder guns. Practice clearing drills with some spent cartridges to make smokestacks. Have a buddy load a maggy with snap caps and a dummy and practice those drills (the old "ball and dummy" drill). Chances are that you don't do enough of them as it is.
- Get heavier on gun maintenance. If you pull everything from the safe twice a year and clean it, up that to every other month.
- Inventory your ammo, so you know what it is your priority to spend your time hunting down. You might find enough of one caliber to have a range day with no consequences. You DO have your minimum inventory levels set, don't you? You don't go below those levels, you stop shooting first.
- Instead of range, take some instructor classes. Most don't involve much shooting, if any.
- Above all, keep your gunny mind-set. You might need it soon.
