My Gun Collection Records

by Andy Rutledge 4 Comments

I keep meticulous records on my firearms, especially with regard to rounds fired and parts replaced. I have never been a fan of any of the commercial apps for keeping track of these things and have always used my own solutions. This week I built a new system for keeping my collection and shooting info online. Not beautiful, but it’s quite serviceable and very handy. I highly recommend that you keep good records for shooting and maintenance for your guns.

Here’s the main tab for my original Glock 19:

And here’s the second tab, for component replacement info for frame and slide components.

There’s more to it than this, of course, but this gives you the basic idea. Whether it’s paper, an app, or something you build, you should keep accurate records for your gun or gun collection.

    I'm so glad I found this blog!! Where can we find something like this to keep records with?

      Hi Joey, Thanks. I think you can probably just google "gun records app" and there are many. I just don't like any of them so I made my own. :)

    I'm a staunch capitalist...so where can I buy this program. I don't believe in freeware!

      I'm with you, Munson, but this is not an app and it's not available. I built it for myself. Sorry to disappoint.
