My Little Black LogBook

Inside All Will Be Revealed.....
I've always kept a mental check on round counts for various rifles, barrels, handguns, etc. This is good information to know if you ever want to sell something, or if you want to brag about "2000 rounds flawlessly!" etc.

But after I built the Tank, I decided I needed to be a little more exact. I figured having a new custom built rifle and a new Glock 34 in the fold were as good a time as any to start logging every shot, every drill, and every session.

Keeping track of your shooting adventures not only gives you accurate numbers for things like round counts, or drill times, but it also allows you to go back and see what has worked or not worked in the past and to see how much you have improved over the time period. Now I am logging the number of rounds I shoot, what type of ammo, the results on the targets, drill types, drill times, competition results, any malfunctions or stoppages and what the causes were/fixes are.

Consider keeping a shooting log book. I actually enjoy it and coupled with video footage of my shooting adventures, it allows me to reflect and improve.

Be safe and see you next time.
