    I know they have been posted here before, but I can't find one. Anybody have an inventory spreadsheet they can share? Preferably one that includes photos.

    Thanks

    I'm using MyGunDB and like it fairly well. A few features I'd like see added (ammo inventory). But, for most people, it's a great way to keep track of firearms and related info.

    I just use Excel and build the spreadsheets myself.

    It works great.

    You can make it as simple or as detailed as you want.

    Just me... but $40 is a bargain for a really cool program... and it saves me a LOT of time (trying to set up a good spreadsheet).

    http://mygundb.com/

    Free updates, and he updates it a LOT (plus he's very receptive to suggestions for new features. I just updated mine last night, and it appears he has added a good ammo inventory feature! I haven't explored it, yet, though.

    MyGunDB is very comprehensive. Photos, purchase records, ammo usage and count, accessories for each gun, maintenance records, etc., etc. Check it out! (I have no financial interest or any connections to this company other than being a customer.)

    Why make it difficult on yourself or time consuming? I don't have time to reinvent the wheel. $40 via paypal, and I'm off to the races!

    I had a spreadsheet that lists the guns by manufacturers, model numbers and calibers. I haven't updated it in years. Don't even know which computer the spreadsheet is on.

    I've been meaning to do this - Probably just make it a word document with pictures and then convert it to pdf.

    I had been planning to do this for a long time, and this thread inspired me to finally do it... inventorying my ammo! That took some work! And, I've got more ammo than I realized!

    MyGunDB has a place to inventory ammo in the program. A cool feature is that you can then display the ammo that corresponds (by caliber) to each firearm in your database. Then you can subtract ammo from the inventory and simultaneously add it to the ammo count for that particular firearm. Very cool!!

    I've also just emailed the owner / programmer of MyGunDB with a couple of additional suggestions for the ammo section (to make it easier to add to the inventory as new ammo is purchased).

    I put all my receipts in envlopes and keep them in the safe.

    Do you know how long it would take me to put them into Excel?

    I don't have that kind of time!

    I can't imagine what a chore it would be to inventory my ammo.
    Then trying to keep up with what I shoot and buy/reload would be a royal PITA.

    Now that I've done the initial data entry, it should be quite easy. When I buy some, I'll add it to the DB. When I shoot it, I'll subtract it and simultaneously add it to the round count. Easy-peasy. I've got all my ammo in ammo cans in my closet, so I can't do a quick look-see to determine what I've got and what I'm running low on.

    I don't reload, though.

    But, I do understand some folks just don't care about these things. :yawn:
