Well of course you should purchase another one "just to shoot at the range"....I've used that excuse several times (and even got away with it once)!!!!!

What is the most likely part to wear out? I'm not sure on that one- maybe someone else will know. If it is the barrel that is an easy fix.

My old IPSC gun, which is now mainly used for IDPA and Limited 10 once in a while (I joined the high-cap club) has literally thousands of rounds through it and nothing other than springs has worn out. Of course, it has a steel frame.

Anyway, I pick up my Defender next week so I'll be in the same boat. I can't afford a second one but want to practice a lot as it will be my carry gun. Maybe by the time it wears out I'll have another!

SHOOT OUT? I've got two WWII era Colts and one of them I have a documented 70k rounds through it not counting the rounds fired while in service. I still have the original barrel, though I use another Colt barrel in it, no frame cracks, no slide cracks, the only problem I've experienced with this gun is when I used Wolf ammo, and the extractor broke, but this could have been due to excessive shooting, although I replace the extractor every 6k rounds or the steel casings. I really doubt you'll shoot out your gun in your lifetime.

I really like shooting .45's but I don't want to "shoot out" my Defender. I will probably only shoot 50 rounds per week through it, so what should I do???

some take me too seriously,,methinks!!

My real dilemma is raising funds for a full-size Colt for target and club competition.

(think I got it this time)
