How many rounds do you shoot a year? Which gun(s) of yours have the most rounds through it (pics encouraged).

Too many to keep track of. I rotate through all of my guns so they get equal attention with similar round counts. But I probably shoot my .22's more than the rest.

Lately, I would say maybe 1000 5.56/.223 and around 2000 9 mm per year.  Used to be more when I was going to the range more often and taking classes. 

I spread it around.  Gun I shoot the most is probably my Glock 34 in competition, but I have two others that I'm planning on shooting instead of the 34.

WOW! I would have thought you shot more than that. My round count is solidly over 10k per year. That is spread out over multiple calibers. I think I reload for 14 or 15 different cartridges.

Last year my round count was most certainly much less than 10k due to my missing several months due to health issues.

I haven't been shooting much in the past 5-6 months due to health issues in the family.  Otherwise, the counts would be at least double that.  A multiday course could easily go through 600-1000 rounds of 5.56 and 9 in itself, but haven't done that in a while.  Hoping to get back to shooting more often.  One "good" thing about not shooting that much recently is that my ammo stores have been growing.   ;D

I used to hit the range around 2-4 times a month before.  I'm trying to get back to once a month.

I'm usually a once a week shooter. And when a holiday comes up and the range is open I usually shoot on those days as well.

My ammo stores are limited by:

a) The number of ammo boxes I own
b) The number of brass cartridge cases I own
c) The amount of room in my house
d) The amount of money in my wallet
e) How lazy I have been about keeping up on my reloading  :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:

After White Shark Arms closed, Big Island no longer has a shooting range, so my count went to zero.  I sure hope we get some kind of shooting range someday. 
In the meantime, I'm back to shooting my airguns lol.

I often wonder why one of the first questions asked to the seller of a used firearm is what is the round count? Is there some magical number of rounds fired to where a firearm looses its value?

The same reason why people want to know how much miles are on a used car before they buy.

People are asking why you would want to know how many rounds have been put through a used gun. Presumably you'd want to know for the same reason you'd want to know how many miles are on a used car. That is to say a round count would give you some sort of information about worth, and/or remaining life regarding the firearm. This makes little sense to me. Firstly, there is no law saying you need to keep track of how many rounds have been put through your gun unlike miles on your car (odometer laws). Secondly, and unlike cars, the useful life of firearms are rarely, rarely reached. Per Hilton Yam you can expect to retire a 1911 after 70,000 rounds or so. After 80,000 rounds through my first 1911 I would tend to agree with this (if you are shooting full power loads. If you are shooting reloads expect 100,000+ before cracks in the frame *might* develop [http://www.10-8performance.com/pages/Reliability%2C-Round-Counts%2C-and-Longevity-in-1911s.html]). My point being most guns will never, truly, be "used" guns. Even polymer guns can endure thousands upon thousands of rounds before needing severe attention.

As such, "used" guns are sometimes great deals.

I get why people ask the question. What I can't understand is why I have asked this in the past? I am guilty of doing this. There is a reason why the law forces auto manufacturers to install an odometer on a car. People lie and people don't have great memories. In the long run, I doubt any one here can tell if a gun has had 50 rounds or 500 or 5,000? What difference does it make if the seller lies and says 50 when it has 500 or 5,000 through it?

Perhaps I did it because I was not confident enough in my abilities to appraise the condition of a used gun in the past? I know over the years I have stopped asking and started paying more attention to the signs of wear and tear. JMHO
