I guess I'm the opposite. When I picked up my new SAR a couple of weeks ago, it was straight home, from the truck to the shop where I grabbed a box of shells, then from the shop a couple hundred feet to the range. Fact is I fired probably a hundred or so rounds before I ever disassembled the SAR. I like to do this so I can see where metal vs. metal is beginning to remove finish, then I know where to stone and polish. I'm nearing 500 rounds now with nary a problem.
