Starting off the evening with a few quick posts...

I couldn't help but notice with a few of the posts that people seem to exactly know how much they've shot a particular firearm. Now, I know with a good deal of certainty how much I shoot firearm X at any given time since I reload my own ammunition. BUT, when you've owned that gun for several years -- how can you say that you've shot 10,000 rounds through it? Whos keepin' count here? I mean, I'm sure you can say -- with a great deal of certainty -- that you've shot at least 10,000 rounds.. but what gives? I've got a .38spec that I've shot 13,984 rounds through to date. :D (See what I'm sayin'?)

I judge mine by how many primers I buy. I load for several calibers, however I keep about the same amount of ammo at any time. I mainly shoot my 5 inch 1911. I buy primers by the thousand, several times a year. Unless I stockpile more ammo than usual, those primers get used in that 1911. Bought another thou today!

I kept track of the wifes .45 and mine for awhile. At the time we were shooting 2-3 times a week. Hers I quit at 3,000 and mine at 1,000rds. When I was young the revolver was king and autos were jam-o-matics unless you paid some gunsmith a couple hundred to line it out. Now a days it's different as most get the job done right out of the box. No more round counting for me. ;)

I have been shooting since the early 60's and have never paid any attention to the number of rounds fired through my guns. I admire people that are that organized. Good for you.

I have enough trouble keeping track of my reloads statistics for each cal that I reload for. I don't even keep track of the number of times I shoot the reloads. I know I should do this.
I do inspect all my brass each time I reload. I handle them several times during the process and have many chances to check them for weakness. I will watch the high pressure rounds more carefully than the low pressure 45 acp, 44 spc, 45 LC, etc.

I worry more about double charges than anything else. That mistake will reinvent the design of your gun.

I tell her every single time. if there were not firearms were still a part of the Royan Britain family.

we fought for our indepdence. our 2nd amendments. MOM: replies there are other things you could do besides guns" guns are for bad guys!!! I response well mom, what am I suppose to do if they bad guys have guns? what should I do use my chop sticks and stab them? no no, give them what ever they want!! im like F that. what if they want your life? are you goin give them that too? she says, well most of them don't want your life unless you intimidate them? NOT IN MY DICTIONARY!!!. We as americans should use our 2nd amendment rights. W e have the right to bare arms" so yeah.. I hope some day the anti gun population will truely and deeply understand if we don't have "tools" to protect our selves and our family the bad guys will be the ones who will eventually overwhem us and then the anti gun peoples wil become the victims too. TOO LATE THEN TOO BAD SO SAD!!!

this may sound jubroius but yupz that is my part of the story.

I am from the asian ethnic and boy they do hate guns. Recently alot of the peoples having been taking advtange of unarmed asian business owners. Armed robberies. THIS IS WHY IM HERE. Im from the recent gen.s they are old school I need to show them that guns are not only for bad guys. we have guns so that we could use it WHEN WE ought to. WE HOPE WE NEVER WILL but well have it when we need it!!!.

sigh... they just don't get it and I don't think they ever will.

Every day, people kill each other by all kinds of crazy ideas from stabbing, running someone over with a vehicle. arson etc. Out of all the stastics I believe many of the situations exclude shooting but I can't say its out of the picture. AnTI GUN PEOPLES WILL REGRET IT when that time comes and its too late.

say good bye to your loved ones simply because your stubborn and your not well edcuated.

everyone has their own opions thats why were in America.

ccw - I am not trying to make fun of you, but you put a word in a previous post that I have no idea what you were trying to say.

Please explain what you really meant to say with the word "jubroius".

Thank you - and once again, I do not wish to insult you.

Doug
