    Seduced me into putting so much money into her, ammo, sights, holsters, etc,

    1. How much have you spent on your Glocks total
    2. How much annually in bullets
    3. How much in other guns.

    I honestly don't even want to think about all that cash.

    Had my G19 for less than a year, probably spent around 2,000 altogether on all that stuff.

    :faint:

    Worth it though.

    Also, don't forget one time investments like eye and ear protection and most of your cleaning kit.

    When I'm done with the basic safety course on Friday I'm looking at about $60 in eyes and ears before I even shoot once. That on top of $30 + ammo per hour to rent and shoot until I decide to get my own gun.

    And I just remembered in CA they make you take a Handgun Safety Certificate Test (isnt a bad a idea considering, not everyone has common sense) for $25 to get a certificate that will last about 5 years and then they charge a DROS (Dealer Record of Sale) on top of each purchase, I think its still $35 maybe more on top of tax.

    I've kept all my receipts but not going to let my wife see them. In a couple months with the price of pistol purchase and ammo and accessories I am over $900.

    I keep all of my empty ammo boxes, it's like looking at a pile of $20 bills. I figure I'm close to $2K in everything I've ever spent on my Glocks, and I only bought my first three years ago.

    I keep the flap of the boxes so I can keep a round count. So far its been 200 rounds of 9mm and 350 rounds of .40 through my G22. I have 250 rounds of 9mm sitting in my bag. Depending on finances this week I may grab another 250 rounds of .40.

    Lol. The gun is the cheap part of shooting.

    I was planning on just keeping a logbook that I'd update each time I shot but if you're shooting a partial box on a single day your method saves having to recount the remainder of whatever box you're on to figure out how many you shot. That being said, when you finish a box why not log it on a sheet of paper and throw out the box (or box lid)?

    How 'bout them Hawks!!
    Haha no doubt!

    I got my first gun about 1 1/2 years ago and since I've bought two more plus all the one time stuff like cleaning kit, ears, targets etc... well, targets are consumables I guess but I bet I got 2 grand all told with a good supply of ammo, 3 kinds plus I got ammo for guns I don't even have yet. How dumb is that..

    I use the note section on my iPhone. Keep all serial numbers and round count for each gun. Very easy to update.

    For most of us yes but for the lucky ones who get paid to shoot and try out new products what a life. And its cheaper than season tickets with food, parking, jerseys and stuff.

    Same here but only for new or new to me pistolas. Once the round count exceeds 500 trouble free rounds, I stop counting - Figure it is dependable enough to be considered ready for carry. Never considered the cost of all the proficiency rounds that must follow afterward. Don't care to make my head hurt. :supergrin:

    3 Glocks and over 24000 rounds mostly reloads. $100 a year for Range Membership and about $15 for every USPSA Match which sometimes 4 a month. Dang no wonder I'm broke. :faint:

    I rather not even know. I just bought a G22 gen 4 and an AR15 mp15 sport, with ammo and cleaning kit plus extra mags I'm over 2k. Doh! Needless to say wife is not happy at all. Still worth every penny!
