Don't think you have to worry too much about wearing a revolver out. I saw an episode of Guns & Gears a couple weeks ago that had a section with Jerry Miculek. He was demonstrating speed shooting and talking about the safeties of S&W revolvers. He picked up one .357 (don't remember the model) and stated that he was just getting it broken in. He said he had "only put about 25,000 rounds through it." Unless you shoot serious
competition on a professional level, shoot all you want, and don't worry about wearing your gun out!

"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen." -Samuel Adams
