When I shoot at the range I usually take 200 rounds for my M&P 40. Should I let the gun cool down after a couple clips or can I just shoot through the 200 without any cool down period ? I don't rapid fire, just one shot about every two seconds.

You can get a gun too hot, but you would probably quit shooting it before it got to that point, the heat would make it hard to hold on to. When I'm shooting I always take more than one gun, then alternate so they don't get too hot. If you only have one you just need to pace yourself, take a break from time to time to let it cool down.

I helped put 3K rds. through a .40 last year in an effort to stop the gun. It took us about 2 hours, stopping only after each 10th mag for a shooter change and a temp reading. Didn't seem to hurt the gun any, it never choked, but a lady cop singed her hand on the chamber.

So my little 200 rounds in about 20 minutes shouldn't hurt anything.

We were putting the rounds downrange rapidly in order to get the gun hot; hitting the gong wasn't our primary goal. Shooting fast does not always translate to shooting well...

When I was on my quest to hit 1000 rounds through my new compact it got hot enough to burn my thumb.

My M&P-9 frequently gets hot enough that the takedown lever burns my thumb, too. It's never caused any trouble ... except, obviously, for the burn on my thumb!

You can anneal the barrel. That's about it. Which is one reason why I don't clean my guns often. Using a fast hot powder like titegroup, and shooting fast, it gets pretty hot. So I don't subject it to bore brushes if it doesn't really need it.
