    I shoot a few rounds of my carry ammo after I practice with my reloads about once a week. I notice that the rim gets nicked by the extractor and looks rather ragged after about 3-4 times. I have never had a failure but it seems like a good idea to cycle it through. I believe a thorough cleaning once a week is just as important. I disassemble and inspect my 1911 down to the firing pin after every trip to the range. God forbid I would have to use it in a defensive situation but it gives me a sense of comfort knowing I have done my part to be prepared.

    I dont unload very often. I put my gun in the safe loaded. I have a Blackhawk serpa holster in the safe to hold it.

    3 or 4 times... If I am not shooting it up and replacing, I will use some farther down the stack in the magazine.

    I rarely need to remove an unfired round from the chamber. If I do, I put it in the "shoot next" box. I fire these 1 or 2 rounds at my next range session.

    So most of my rounds are chambered only once, a few twice. I don't know whether repeated chamberings can cause a problem, but this practice avoids this potential alleged problem. (But this may be like the NY beatnik who snapped his fingers constantly to keep the elephants away.)
