"No more paper and pen at the range!" Gun Log SPC is a range log that tracks your firearms, ammunition, and results at the range. You can discover which ammo is most accurate or has the fewest failures, how many rounds you have fired, and how much ammunition is on hand. But wait, there's more! There is a G1 external ballistics calculator that estimates bullet drop, PDF reports that include photos of your firearm or target, and much more.
The app does not collect, mine, harvest or do anything with your data. Firearm information is just as sensitive as your social security number or credit card information.
The app has a passcode. It is activated by using the iOS Settings App.
Before you buy please go to the Developer Website and read about the App. The link is listed in the App Store. This app is not a simple list but instead an app that logs range results, ammo usage, firearms, ballistic drop tables, and has reports that allow you to analyze your shooting, firearms and ammunition, and improve your ability and to know what ammunition is reliable and accurate. You do not have to use all of the functionality, but it is there when you need it. Don’t let the low price fool you, this is a very complete range log and inventory app!

So Glad I Switched to this app
Was using another app forever but the developer gave up on and was no longer updating, but it was familiar and I am one old stubborn S. O. B. I just got the new iPhone and the old app just wouldn’t expand and fill the whole screen so enough was enough. None of the current log apps looked like what I had so it was a tough choice but I LOVED the fact that this doesn’t back up to a cloud. So this was the choice, at first I thought this app was going to be/do to much but boy was I wrong! This app does just enough to help balance what I do with my personal firearms. The one thing I wish that I could do with the app that you might be able to do I just haven’t found it yet is also print out the log book side of it just as a back up to my back up to my back up...again I am old and still find usefulness in paper.
More features that I thought possible
I’ve been looking for a way to securely keep track of my gun inventory and to record my range sessions electronically. I tried a different app, but it had a monthly service fee and I was concerned that they appeared to have access to my personal information. This app does that and so much more without the need to access my data. It also has so many features it’s gonna take me a while to figure it all out.
Being a new user with two hours experience, I was confused on a couple of issues and dropped an email to the developer. Let me just some up what I think of their customer service. Superb! Very timely response and clear resolutions to my questions.
The only reason I didn’t give it five stars is it is not seamless across multiple devices. The database has to be backed up and moved via iTunes. I understand they tried this in the past and had some technical difficulties. I hope they’ll figure out a way to include this capability in a future release. But even without that feature, it’s still a very usable, well constructed app.
Almost everything I wanted!
I was really excited when I found this app. I have been using paper logs and Excel worksheets to inventory firearms, track costs and log shooting sessions but with this app I found everything I needed in one place. The app is very detailed in capturing all kinds of information about firearms ammunition and accessories and also allows you to capture images… I did find that I was a little limited when it comes to the images. You can store up to for images per firearm right now and I did find that a little limiting for what I wanted to do but that is a small thing when compared to the big picture and functionality of this app. I haven't used the reports yet but they seem very robust and full-featured… I could probably use a few more for tracking total costs in firearms and ammunition but those are things that can be added in the future. Overall a great product and I look forward to using it more!
