Just wondering if I'm the only one on this forum that carries concealed but don't spend a lot of time shooting. I'm sure I will be in the minority.

Although I do shoot alot, I know alot of people(including LEO's) that dont shoot very often.Does that mean that they(LEO's) shouldnt carry a weapon for self defense..NO! Sure like the saying goes, practice makes perfect, But I have never seen a certain number of rounds one has to shoot before he/she can carry. So LSU, if you feel comfortable only shooting the LCP a few times and wanting to carry it, then go for it.

Uh oh... different thread, same subject with a poll!!!.

My opinion for whatever it's worth, is a person should shoot a gun enough to feel comfortable with it and skilled in it's use. Not asking an internet forum how reliable it is after they already own it and have shot it very little. Shoot your own gun and see if it is reliable. Your gun could be a lemon while 100 others have never had a malfunction.

510 through mine-- the LCP is nothing more than a "just because" fun gun to me.

the G36 is what i use if i carry.

All of my guns have to prove themselves reliable , and that usually comes in the fashion of between 400-500 rounds intially.

when i go to the range, i shoot all of my guns so that is why the round count is so low.

the bottom line is if you are going to carry a weapon, you should practice with that weapon to become proficient with it.

dryfire practice using snap caps and live fire sessions are acceptable forms of practice , but the key is to just do it.

Truth be told -- IMO 90% of the people on this forum probably won't even make the 200 round mark.

most of them are just blowing smoke anyway--- it is the internet, you know.

besides most Leo's hardly ever practice, go figure, and that should make you wonder.

For me i shoot because it is a way to disengage from the pressures of life.

Best regards,

Ahhhh! Therein lies the rub. "IF" I carry.

The truth is that my carry choice is the Taurus Millennium PT 745 because of it's relatively small size and weight and .45 cal stopping power, and, so far, its total reliably with everything I've put through it.

But, the fact is that at times it's still a hassle to carry under some circumstances here in south Florida. Whereas the LCP is an all the time, any time, anywhere, kind of carry gun. And of course you know the cliche .........

Right now I have 138 rounds put through my LCP, I would have put all 150 through her, but I wanted to keep 2 magazines full. I will get more put through her when I get her back from Ruger. :)

We already have a sticky on this subject but if its graphs you want, it's ok with me. Personally, I have approx. 800 rounds through my LCP and would trust my life with the little spitfire without reservation. The gun is far more proficient than I am that's why I practice and the gun just goes along for the ride.

And the best news of all is, it came back from the recall today! Total time away from home: exactly one week to the day. :)

No, I don't want graphs. I just wanted to know if I was the only one on this forum who hadn't shot their LCP all that much. After getting slammed about it the other night. If I could vote again, I'd be in a different category. I put a hundred rounds through it today. No problems.
