Do you shoot your EDC
 
Watching a conversation between two popular You Tubers the other day they estimated the average EDC has less than 300 rounds through it…

I have way more than that in the past 10 mounts I have over 3,000 through my Shield and in the last three weeks over 1,000 through my P365.

How about y’all do you shoot your EDC?

mshill 02-10-2019 11:51 AM

I shoot all the guns listed on my CCW at least once a month, probably 50-100 rounds each.

colossians323 02-10-2019 12:58 PM

you're a fool if you do not
Especially using the ammo that you think will end up protecting you

johnk518 02-10-2019 1:08 PM

I think everyone is going to say the same thing.

CinnamonBear723 02-10-2019 1:09 PM

I shoot it regularly as well as the ammo I keep in it

The get shot every range trip.

oldveteran 02-10-2019 1:17 PM

I don't see the need to shoot every pistol on my CCW on a regular basis. If I decide to change my EDC then I definitely would go to the range prior to carrying it.

Mustard 02-10-2019 1:31 PM

Pondering ccw myself. Figured i'd get two of each pistol: one to train with, one to carry

What? Ccw, or buying two of every gun:D?

That said i'd probably shoot the edc quarterly, maybe a box each

Both, I think it is a good idea to have a back up for your EDC...

Chapped Hide 02-10-2019 2:06 PM

My EDC is the only gun I shoot on a regular basis.

Same here other than my 22 Buck Mark, it's jus to much fun not to shoot and inexpensive compared to the 9...

Sapperforward 02-10-2019 2:25 PM

.......every single range trip.

OK, I'll be honest, I don't shoot near as much as I should. I am working diligently to change that. I have purchased a brand new silhouette style steel target and made a stand from a Harbor Freight folding steel saw horse. The first stand I tried couldn't hold the weight and every time I hit the plate, my stand would fall over. Just waiting for the weather to break to try it again.

Preston-CLB 02-10-2019 2:45 PM

I don't have a CCW, but I do have my semi-auto for HD. I run some drills with it every time I go to the range.

Not only am I honing my skill, it's darn good fun!

lamduh 02-10-2019 4:24 PM

I currently have 5 pistols listed on my CCW. Each month i have at least 1 range day. But i try to go every other week. Whatever im looking to carry next month i shot at that range day and my old faithful carry.

Bigtwin 02-10-2019 5:12 PM

Not as often as I should, both my CCW guns have at least 1500 mm round through them. But I know damn well I need to shoot them more often just to stay proficient.

Bigtwin 02-10-2019 5:14 PM

*1500-2000 rounds through them. I was using talk to text don't know why it screwed that up.

Foebia 02-10-2019 5:19 PM

Pretty good idea because every gun shoots a bit different, gotta remain proficient

Don’t do that. I have two Beretta 92 pistols, and they each shoot a little differently. Buy two different pistols, and shoot them both as much as you can. You’re not likely to wear them out by shooting. You’ll get more holster wear than anything else.

Shoot the pistol that your going to carry, not lock in a safe.

Great Made America 02-10-2019 6:11 PM

If I own it, I shoot it. If I carry it, I shoot it even more.

FlyingShooter 02-10-2019 6:18 PM

Went out and put about 150 rounds through each of my carry guns yesterday. I shoot at least one or all of them each range trip.

Barbarosa 02-10-2019 6:24 PM

I don't carry a gun unless I have fired at least 800 rounds through it. After that I shoot it regularly.

splaturn 02-10-2019 6:25 PM

I regularly practice with all my CCW-listed guns except my P22. It's on there, but since it's actually never in daily rotation (only when we're on some sort of camping trip), it really only sees the range when I want to have some plinking fun with the friends or kids.

plumbum 02-10-2019 6:51 PM

There isn’t a time I go shooting and don’t put at least a few cylinders through my snubby - poor thing gets beat to heck, might as well give it some play time. My house guns don’t get many rounds through them, but that’s because they’re like, third-string.

Nope. I keep it wrapped up in butcher paper to keep it safe.

Nicoman 02-10-2019 6:57 PM

Haven't carried in well over a year (traded my carry gun) but I did shoot it every range trip. Picked up a Springfield TRP to edc but have not shot it yet and not sure I'm really vibing it as my EDC.

Because everyone likes pictures

I have 2 Shield 9's and they are used a lot.

I figure it pays to be competent with what you might need to be competent with.

Well, come on. If one is going carry every day, wouldn’t one take the time to shoot & service that tool?

They should but that is not what I understand... I am told many carry without actually doing any range time or training.

Some states don't require any class or training to carry. CA only requires an eight hour class and thirty rounds down range for a CCW.

they wouldn't be locked in a safe. Glock 19 (for the sake of the argument) #1 would be the training gun, 100's of rounds a month + classes + etc; g19 #2 (configured identically to #1) would be the carry gun, maybe 50 rounds a quarter.

I get that I'll not likely wear it out with shooting, but why put the extra miles on it or take the chance? Sure the EDC will get the 5,000 round inaugural torture test, but once you pop that cherry why do any more?

I don't get why some guys are so particular about their expensive defensive ammo that they cycle it through their gun before it's imaginary expiration date, but then you're gonna eat into its reliability by putting more rounds downrange for training? Find a known good condition, and stay there.

5,000 rounds is a nice cherry :)

What's an EDC?

People actually get those?

I'd venture to say that the average ccw'er/calgunner cycles many more rounds and range time than the average police officer does (off duty...and maybe even if you count qual) in a year, too.
