    I was sitting here thinking about my XDm40, I bought it in Dec, and haven't shot one round yet. There has been a shoulder surgery in between, but I have never gone this long buying a gun and not getting it to the range. This is a gun I am extremely glad I bought. So the question is, what is the longest period of time you have gone before shooting a new gun? Not including one's you intentionally planned on putting away, but just had circumstances getting in the way?

    I was in a wreck , Harley v. Jeep. Shattered pelvis, nerve damage, double vision, etc.

    What was the FIRST place I HAD to go after being in the hospital for 3 weeks and being at home, in bed, for 2 months with rods sticking out of me still ?.......The range, of course ! Had to shoot my Sig 239 SAS .40 cal.

    This was in Phoenix, at an indoor range. They folded up the rest/table and I found how bad a shot I have become, due to the wreck.

    Oh well, gives me an excuse when I miss a target or when I want to go practice. Like I need an excuse ?

    About four weeks. Buying the gun broke the bank so I had to wait until I had money for the range fee and ammo. ;)

    Bought a .22/20 gauge over/under at a gun show about 6 years ago for my son when he gets older. (3 now, bought it before he was even a thought) Never been shot since i bought it.

    I have some guns that I purchased at least 5 years ago that I have yet to shoot. I fall victim to having too little time and a few favorites that have won my heart. That has not stopped me from buying more.

    Usually less than a week. Every new gun makes me feel like a kid at Christmas.
