Simulator Straining

The training guns at my gunsmiths simulator go through a lot of trigger springs.  One a week for the one gun people generally choose.  Every two weeks for the one with the sights no one likes.

A spring a week?!


Do the math.  An average day is 5 half hour sessions.  200 'shots' a session.  (Trigger pulls.  It goes fast when you don't need to reload magazines.)  Average.  1000 trigger pulls a day, 6000 a week.  Plus Sam and the apprentices mess around in there a LOT.  So the number may well be higher.

How many rounds do you go through on your Glock before you need to think about the spring?  120 boxes of ammo?
