    Question - do you have a logbook for your gun?

    Full disclosure - as a retired scientist, I used lab books to document the results of lab experiments, etc. So, being very comfortable with documenting my work, I have also been documenting my gun ownership. Every gun I shoot has its own logbook documenting the rounds fired, reloading results, groups sizes and any other gun specific shooting observations as well as maintenance.

    Do you do something similar?

    No sir. Logging my results at the range will only remind me of my poor performance and will somewhat let me know how much money I spend on ammo. Not interested.

    I only log their model info, condition, accessories, how much I paid, and approx market value. Just in case my kids need a starting point if I die.

    Not nearly as detailed as yours, but when I go to the range I note which guns were shot, how many rounds and with what ammo (usually my reloads). I think it's good to have an accurate round count.

    After the first 100 guns, you’ll probably get behind on your paperwork.

    Yeah, that’s definitely true! Fortunately, I don’t have the funding or space so that’s a problem I won’t experience....

    I kept logs of the rifles I used in competition long ago and far away. Other than those rifles, I have not other than reloading information.

    I keep no logs on the amount of ammo through each of my firearms.

    But...I do keep an constantly updated spreadsheet on the amounts of ammo I gather and use.

    They're just expensive bricks if you don't have the ammo to feed 'em...and that IS their game plan.
