A rimfire revolver could require me to learn to count as high as ten. It seems I'm not skilled enough to count that high, as I often find myself miscounting when I do so with my MKIII. Though it doesn't matter on a pistol as that bolt [or slide on other guns] staying open makes it obvious unlike a revolver that enjoys keeping lack of live ammo a secret.

I find it embarrasingly hard to count while focused on other stuff like hitting a target. One would think a college grad could count to 10.
When you are shooting a revolver and go past your 10 shots you are not dry firing the gun. The firing pin is hitting an empty case, not the back of the cylinder and that will prevent any damage.
