    Remember, muscle memory takes between 2,000 and 10,000 repetitions to firmly implant in your mind.

    At a few cents per round, it does add up though.

    I need to hit the range in the next couple of weeks now........Been a while.......

      That's what I like about being a fire investigator as part of my duties. I usually shoot a couple thousand rounds a year that I pay for myself, but I can use it as a tax deduction.

        Like I said there is a point of dimishing returns. I can honestly say that I have been on long trips to the range where most of the unit hit a period of boredom where bad habits started to creep back in and accuracy started to drop. Additionally you are always dealing with a finite budget, since you are not the only unit that needs to be trained, if you exceed that budget you are hurting the chance for the other guys to sweat enough in training. Luckly modern simualtors are making it a lot less costly to get guys trained a lot more. If Marcinko had that available 25 years ago, maybe he would not have gotten in the trouble he did, but he liked to butt heads even when there was no need, so his path was likely set regardless.

          That is what the snap in circle is for, 9000 dry fires than 1000 live fires. I shoot expert EVERY time, and have never shot below a 225.

          Besides, the fact that Marcinko shoot the USMC budget is more a reflection on our ability to do more with less, than it is of any real amount of ammo in the Navy's budget. He fired what, half of one percent of the cost of a ship fired Tomahawk? He really should not have bought those Mercedes-Benz limos with discretionary funds than allowed the unit to use them for personal use. I am all for steping on toes if you have to to get the job done, but don't do it just to show your authority, and make sure that the rest of your hose is in order when you.

            It's kind of funny to see the microstamping & the old standby of gun buybacks.

            In Connecticut, and I have to think much of the rest of the country, the gang bangers finally figured out it's a bad thing to get caught with a gun with ballistics tying to a crime...

            So now they use "community guns" -- only a handful of firearms have accounted for most of the shootings in the big cities of CT this year...basically anything planned.

            So maybe they carry "defense" guns...but it's a lot less likely they tie to a crime.

            And while it's not a case killer, I'm sure the defense attornies love the reasonable doubt of having a single weapon linked to many crimes, and no positive chain of custody.

            So fine, the gun buybacks make you feel good. And the microstamps let you catch the suburban housewife who didn't know any better. Yipee.
