10/22 about 20,000 rounds or so, over about a 18 year span.

    Ruger 10/22. Easily 30k+ from myself over the last 20 years and my dad owned it for several years before he gave it to me. It's beat up, looks like hell, almost no rifling left, loose as hell, still shoots like a champ though.

    Remington 760 GameBLASTER it gets shot more than any other gun I have, even more than the Bushys. Certified kills, more than trucks on I80 in PA!

    This would have to be my Colt AR-15 LEO 9mm Carbine, with perhaps 25,000 rounds through it, using both the 16" and 10" uppers. My Benelli 121 M1 shotgun has been fired maybe 5,000 times and still works fine. My old SIG/Sauer P220 (the first handgun I ever bought)has been fired several thousands of times, both 9mm rounds and using the .22LR conversion kit.

    A 10/22... I bought 500 BRICKS of cheap .22lr ammo years ago and I'm probably half to three-forths of the way through it, so my guess would be for sure over 100,000 rounds through it, maybe as many as 150,000. I wore out the aftermarket sporter barrel and have since put on the factory sporter again. This was back when I liked a lot of firepower when playing around (not power, just bullets downrange). I used to load up several 50 round Ram-lines and had a Ram-line mag loader to make loading easier and fired them using either a BMF or hell-fire trigger. I don't treat guns like that any more, but I still wish I had a full-auto. Someday I'll get a class III...

    That would be my first gun. Stevens Springfield Model 15 singleshot 22. I would have to estimate around 150,000 rounds in the last 48 years.

    Ruger Mark II, I received it for my 25th birthday almost 20 years ago.
    At last count it had over 21,500 rds through it.

    Ruger 10/22 is also about 20 years old and has about 5000 more through it.

    My Winchester 9422, probably has 15,000 rounds through it since I bought it in 1989. My Armi San Marco 1851 .38 special Richards conversion has gone through over 3,500 rounds since I bought it two years ago. All reloads, it's never seen a round of factory ammo. I'm sure the day is coming when it will pass the 9422. Unless it breaks first.

    Remington 870 Fieldgrade purchased in "64", hunted only until "66" in storage for 3 Yrs while in Viet Nam. Then 100 rds per week of "Fun" Trap for 11 Years. 57200 Rds. Hunting afterwards at probably not more than a 100 per year. Never had to replace a part and am hoping to get back into recreational trap again this year.

    Ansch?tz .22LR, model 1451.

    Have run about 11-12000 through it in 3 years.
    Bought 20 bricks a while back, they're gone and have had a couple of packs of CCI Stinger and CCI Minimag.

    Have one brick left - then I'm fresh out.

    Don't do anything that I've allready done - That'd be just plain STOOOOOOPID.

    Colt Gold Cup National Match. 30,000 to 40,000 rounds through it in practice and matches over the last 25 years. Replaced the barrel with a Barstow Marine-cut barrel about 10 years's still shooting better than I can. Shootist you have me beat by a long margin but it says something about the basic quality of the weapon. Beach

    Beach (and all), I over-estimated a bit. When I got it, I started keeping the top flap from each box of primers (1000) and late last night I counted them and it is only 87,000. Sorry about the exaggeration. I replaced the barrel at about 50,000 rounds (also the extractor and ejecter) and replaced the firing pin at about 65,000.
    OOOPS - another exaggeration, I forgot that I have about 1,500 loaded rounds so I guess I have only shot about 85,500 rounds. [:I]

    I use my Model 12 Winchester pump for trap, and it has shot thousands of rounds without a glitch, but my M-1 Garand must have been used a lot before I ever got it. If it could only speak, the stories it could tell.

    Old used Maremont M-60 bought in 1975 over 100,00 between 2 barrels,

    Old Marlin 60? semi .22, 30-40,000 out of it still a good shooter.

    That would be my S&W Mod-586 .357 Magnum. It's my favorite target gun to shoot. I figure I've probably put close to 4,000 38special rounds though there and maybe 1000 357's. I shoot a lot more 38's then 357's to lessen stress on the frame. She's my sweetheart so I want her to last forever. [:X]

    10 rounds of skeet/week for 5 years is what, 65K shells? (+ small game, upland, and waterfowl hunting). All thru a Browning GTI.
    Second place (in my safe) would be the wife's Cetori, 8 rounds of skeet/week or 52K shells.
    Never had a gun related problem with either of them.

    Some guys like a mag full of lead, I still prefer one round to the head.
