Im fairly new to carrying a handgun and was just wondering how often do you cycle your carry ammo?
Thanks for your responses

No need, other than practice and reliability testing.

Ammo doesn't get stale.

In an automatic I generally shoot up the mag that is in the gun first when I go shooting. For revolvers, every two or three years.

Never. Just the top couple of rounds if they get cycled a lot. Too many people waste money and good ammo changing it out.

this is why once a year my club holds an IDPA BUG match. Blow out your mag of carry ammo, cycle the slide 100 times on the BUG gun with regular ammo, give her a good cleaning and Bob's your uncle.
