    Everyone always puts pics of their new guns up but I wanna see some with some character (wear and tear) to them. This is my 10 old HK USPc 9mm (my very first handgun), this weekend weather permiting it'll hit 40,000 trouble free rounds.

    Glock 22, my first handgun i've owned it about 4 years, put about 10,000 rounds through it myself it was manufactured back in 1994, i have no earthly idea what the total round count is.

    ~10,000 rounds through my G17 and it's never given me any problems save for a few FTEs first time out which clearly fall under the category of "user error."

    Looks relatively new in the photo, but it's easily >5000 rounds at that point.

    With the exception of bad ammo, they all go bang any time they're loaded and the trigger is pulled.

    I've only put around 3,000 rounds through it in the year that I've owned it. The gun has been rock solid. Only issue I had was the trigger bar return spring snapped, though there is no telling how old it was and that was a simple/cheap fix. Other than that it has been incredibly reliable.

    I like wear marks, it adds character. ;)

    Has given me zero trouble, but that's to be expected of a revolver...

    My first SIG. A P226 Equinox. It always seems to make the range trips. I have no idea of the round count, but it's a ton. I took the Equinox grips off to keep them from getting beat up.

    A P7 Commercial, not a police trade in. It's seen a lot of carry time in the past but I don't carry it anymore. I am the third owner and have no clue to the round count on this either.

    Dang, that is the first weapon I ever owned! I bought one to get through the Academy (We were only allowed to go through with a revolver) and carried for a short time when I first became a cop. Traded it in to get my first Sig. Man I need to pick one of these up again for just nostalgic reasons.
