    2000 rounds through a new gun without a cleaning is a very thorough test.

    The general rule of thumb is 200 rounds to break in a New pistol, preferably with heavier bullets.

    200 rounds of test firing is plenty for me. No issues now it's time to load it up and trust your life with it. 2000 rounds? Bull butter.

    I have a gp100 .357 and a sr 1911 both made by ruger that I have not shot 2000 times between them. And if you think they aren't reliable enough come get my wallet at your own risk partner. Good luck. Oh and all I have is "target" ammo in them. Make you feel more confident to charge in?

    Have it with you and you will prevail in most cases. Leave it at home whatever it may be and you may be screwed.

    I love my Colt 1911, but I'm an S&W revolver guy...

    I had a Colt Trooper once. Nice handgun. My favorite 357 was the S&W 686 with a gunsmithed trigger and action. Back in the day Pythons were more complicated and less reliable. I still own two revolvers and never use them.

    Guys with .357's...

    Are you running full power .357 loads or 38+p loads?

    When I still had a Colt Trooper I usually shot 38+p loads at the range. Now for some entertainment shoot a Ruger LCR in 357.
