I've been going through at least 200-300 rounds each (pistol and carbine) on every outing. Last trip, took some friends that were anxious to try my S&W .460, until they saw the ball of fire it shoots. Instead, they had fun running the Scorpions. They both remarked how easy they are to shoot well. I backed that up by making a single ragged hole with a full mag from my pistol, using the Shockwave Blade and a solid cheek weld. Might as well start cutting smiley faces into targets, one 9mm hole at a time.
