Most time Behind the trigger

BamaakIIBamaakII Posts: 266 Member
What platform would you say you have the most trigger time?  For instance I assume for Zee, it would be glocks.  For me its sort of the AR platform, if you count a 15-22 as an AR platform, I probably have over 50K rounds on it.  Add that to my AR9, maybe 10-12K and .223 ARs and it's by far the highest count.  Second would probably be my MK pistols.  probably another 30K on them. That's a lot of store bought .22. I could not say what 3rd would be.

I'm guessing we will se some 1911s, glocks and ARs.  Maybe some CZs?

    Shear Volume of rounds would be the M4/AR Platform. 
    Next would be HK/Glock Pistols. 
    Then Bolt Gun in .223/.308/.338 calibers.

    Now, time spent...........it would probably be bolt gun, gas gun, pistol.

    Revolvers most likely.

    Sad to say that would be last place for me. Even though I have many. That’s my fault. 😢

    Glock pistols. Hard to say between AR rifles and bolt actions.

    yea revolvers would would be at the bottom of my list for now.  that may change if my delay ever comes back.  We are having revolver matches locally I will try when I get some proficiency on it.  I just hate reloading every 6 or 7 rounds.

    Definitely an old Remington 870 Wingmaster 12 guage under some clay birds.

    For me, Revolvers are 99% Hunting/Utility firearms. Only 1% defensive. 

    No slight towards them. Just how I use them.

    That would be 2 identical M-70s with  Redfield 6 - 18 scopes, chambered for 22-250, one  re barreled twice the other 3 times. These were my PD rifles.

    M 14, if you count rounds.  M 16, if you count days.
    Concealed carry is for protection, open carry is for attention.

    A very interesting question.  There are at least two ways of looking at it; 1- number of rounds fired, 2- actual time behind the rifle.

    For instance, I can burn up a lot more .22LR or .223 or even 9mm ammo in a very short time, compared to the number of rounds I will shoot in competition behind my match F-TR bolt gun.

    If I consider the amount of time, I spent behind my match rifle(s), looking through the riflescope or the spotting scope and taking the occasional shot, that would be the platform of choice beating the others by multiple hours.

    On the other hand, if it's just pulling the trigger then in a lifetime of shooting (over 55+ years), it would have to be .22LR (10/22), followed by 9mm (Sig pistols), then .223 (AR).

    For sheer number of rounds put downrange, with the shortest amount of time on the trigger...this

    On the other hand...either 1911s or my bolt guns...

    Let me be more specific.  By round count AND trigger time AND carry time......... 1911s by a HUGE margin 😁

    Now that I’m thinking about it, the Marlin model 60 may be in my #1 spot since it was pretty much the only gun I shot for the years between 12 years old and 17 years old

    My Mark III. It goes to the range with me just about EVERY time, and I shoot 100 or 200 rounds through it before moving on to whatever else I brought.

    Bolt actions. By a lot.

    Then probably 1911's followed by Glocks.

    After that, it's a big jumble of just about everything.

    Springfield XDs have probably taken the lead now, followed closely by 1911s, then revolvers.  I have more time behind shotguns than rifles.

    I was thinking 1911 or AR, but I have tossed a metric poo ton of 06 out of old wooden guns. I think that the AR will catch up because of the volume I have been launching and the 1911 just doesnt get as much love as it used to when you could buy ammo without stopping at the ATM.
    It's boring, and your lack of creativity knows no bounds.
