5000 rds per year is minimal maintenance

for a top hand, and that's IF he does a lot of dryfire, laserlyte and Airsoft, and if he's only trying to stay on top of a 9mm. 1/2 of those rds can be .22. If you want to stay really good with a lw Commander .45, or something equally fierce, using full power ammo, you'll have to shoot at least twice as much. Many top competitors fire over 50, 000 rds per year and some top 100k, too. Ross Siefried averaged 300 rds per day of ball duplication lrn reloads in his .45's, for 5 years, when he was shooting his way to be the IPSC world champ, in 1981. Even at 20cents per round for somebody's reloads, think about that. Think about all that brass retrieval work, too. Ross was a multimillionair cattle rancher, he had little to do but load ammo and shoot, and watch calves grow. $20,000 per year, just for ammo.

We have had trolls here before who seem to delight in trying to prove that they are some sort of genius. Most of what they post is regurgitated from survivalist boards and some legitimate guns websites. But they all share one common trait. They are all annoying and eventually fade away or more often get banned by an admin. Here is to a swift farewell of our current troll.

that may be true for them, but it aint for me. I've fired well over 200,000 rds, most of them .45, nearly all of that for combat match competition training. I've ccwed for over 20 years now. I've shot hundreds of animals with ccw guns and loads, not monster revolvers or single shots that nobody carries.

see, your standards of "skill" are very low, that's why you 'think" that 1-2k rds per year of practice is a lot.

Who said anything about 1 -2 k rounds? Are you halucinating? And you know nothing about me or what I shoot or how often. I don't come on here bragging about my shooting skills to attempt to impress anyone. And certainly don't care what you think about my standards of skill. You are an abrasive troll and you are not making any friends here. Please get the hint and stop posting here. Before the admins ban you.

He wants to be banned so he can tell his fellow ninjas how we were cowed by his steely mind and couldn't take the mirror he was holding up to us.

There are prepper boards where they know all about peak oil, organic seeds, and composting toilets but little about guns. Mall ninjas try to bluff their way to credibility there. Here he doesn't even realize how obvious he is. He is so much like our last mall ninja I wondered if it was him under a different ID.

The same tone, the same desperate cry for attention, the same BS.
