Since I kinda flipped my entire collection last year, and I started over, I have been tracking the exact number of rounds I put through each gun. Anyone else do this?

The only gun that I kept track of was my Sig P226. It was my only 9mm for several years and I counted the primers I used. I lost track at 15,000 rounds when I sent it off to Walter Birdsong to have his Black T finish put on it... That 226 has never skipped a beat! What a pistol!

My other pistols, no... After 1000 rounds I stop paying attention...

I have kept track of every round fired in all guns bought since 1991.

Well, yes, I do. I started a log book in 1958 that documents nearly fifty revolvers (and one Colt Gold Cup ,45) for each round fired. The date, number of rounds fired, load or ammunition and bullet type, and total rounds fired to date for each gun. Also recorded repairs and/or modifications. Date and place of purchase, and when sold or traded.

Makes interestin' reading.

Yes, I keep a log using Excel that documents pretty much everything about my guns. I have 1 spreadsheet for Handguns, 1 for Long Guns, 1 for Ammo and even 1 for my "good" flashlights, (Surefires etc). My logs cover everything about the guns including number of rounds fired as well as type, brand, etc.
Some have labeled me "anal" for my meticulous recordkeeping. :wink:
One suggestion, if using a PC for record storage, make sure you back up regularly to CD, DVD or?

Yes, on all guns. Don't really know why, but I do. It does help keep track of when to change the springs in the 1911's.

Yep! I keep the rounds logged in a gun journal .
So far
4500 rounds Sigma 9ve No failures
1550 Baby Eagle No failures
1150 Taurus pt-111 No failures
550 S&W M&P No failures.
1300 Taurus pt-111 No failures (Wifes gun)

Come to think of it this does sound kind of anal. :lol:

Yup, I keep a small notebook in my range bag, note any malfs, round count, ammo used, and any other general notes on my shooting that day. I also save all my targets so I can track progress.
