I'm trying to figure out how to actually count the number of shots. Before I even tried to trigger the gun with a microprocessor, I tried to measure the number of shots with a photo-interrupter attached to the barrel.... I had issues with that. Eventually I want to get back to that, but right now I'm trying to approach it from a different angle.
