HOMEMADE PISTOLS AND THE POST SHOOTING INVESTIGATION
GABE SUAREZ ON SHOTGUNS

IS THE ROUND COUNT HIGH ENOUGH?

Spentbrass

I got this from one of our students recently.  One of the things we do here in AZ is a student can send his ammo and firearms to avoid the hassle of traveling with them.  So he asked -

"300 rounds seems low to me for a round count for this course. If I order a case of a thousand, that will give us 500 each. What do you think?"

My reply was what I always reply when asked about round counts.

You can certainly bring more ammo and shoot more if you like and there is time.  But I want to will tell you that in my classes I actually teach things.  There are classes that are judged by the number of drills and the super high round count.  One pistol class, I was told, had a count of 2,000 rounds per day.  My class is not like that.  The goal is to make you a better shooter and a better gunfighter. 

To expend ammo endless drills that will leave your skills exactly what they were when you began, all you need is a range. To learn you need a teacher to teach you new skills and some shooting to understand those skills.  This involves much more than just a mindless drills with high round count. It is like actually going to school to learn.

You will have a great time and I guarantee you will leave a better gunfighter.
