Round Count?

I was just wondering what everyone is using to keep track of there rounds fired count. Memory? Notes on cell phone? Computer? Log book?
Seems I read something on here about a log book or range book. Do you keep a log for each weapon? Is there one I can download, can you buy them at the local gun shop? So far all I am counting is my new Ultra and the new AR rifle I bought in November. Thanks All

That was all the rage at work on our swat guns when they got put in service. Of course guys forgot to enter the count except the sniper who had more time and maintained their dope books. But the theory that such a log would predict maintenance intervals and replace things before failure did not work.

New identical weapons put in service at the same would have different needs at different times though the round counts were the same. After years behind the scopes rifle, the round count log proved nothing to me. Performance dictates the needs.

I'm tracking my "break-in count" by memory. After that I'm not too concerned with round count. Break-in is at 450 rounds and she's running like a Swiss watch, so I'm thinking I'm home free.

My old way was keeping track on a little pad in my range bag.After reading how another member did his, I now keep track of which magazine have had fte/ftf and log all round counts,type of ammo and mag issues on my computer.We always take 5 pistols with us to the range and it does take dedication to keep up with them all but it's worth it to me in the long run just from maintenance side of it.

I've been doing it for years, I keep a pen and a small note pad in my range bag. When you own a bunch of guns it's important to track shots fired in order to know when springs are due for replacement. I also track ammo used and any malfunctions with both guns and magazines. Every so often I will transfer the data from my note pad to a program my son set up on my computer.

I've got a bunch of guns, have never kept a log, and never had any problems.

Your problem is very evident, if your not having any problems your not shooting enough.

I have done the same process for years! Works for me.
