    Does anyone else have a hard time keeping the geek seperate from the gun owner? I was writing out some load data into a load log and got to thinking, wow this sucks to re-enter a lot of the same information, I should type it so I can cut and paste. Before you know it I'm at a 12 table database that includes gun, ammunition, and component inventory tracking :rofl:

    :o I have an Excel file with all my guns, mags, and ammo. All their serial numbers, when and where I bought them, how much I paid and what condition. I'm sure once I get into reloading I'll have a big file with load data.

    You don't think I already have a SQL database with my collection and associated load data based on division and sport? lol

    SELECT
    [Caliber]
    ,[Model]
    ,[Make]
    ,[Last shot]
    ,[actionType]
    ,[Purchase Date]
    ,[Purchased From]
    FROM [arisguns].[dbo].[idpaguns]
    where Caliber = '.45' and actionType = 'SA'
    group by Make

    Yep, I have all that too. Broke the ammo down by caliber, brand, purchase date, quantity, and source.

    I write the number of rounds I have in my ammo cans on the lid with a china marker.

    Other than that, I'm not very meticulous. :o
