For the given purpose, 999 is a very large number.
What sort of firearm requires more than 999 different people to use it regularly?
A rifle for people learning to shoot might be used by thousands of people over its lifetime, but not all of these people need regular access to the firearm. When a person will never use such a farearm again (i.e. he or she passes a course), that person's fingerprints should be erased from the weapon's memory.
If a weapon could conceivable be used by more than 999 people on a regular basis (perhaps a backup weapon for a number of military units), perhaps it shouldn't be fingerprint locked in the first place.

My experience somewhat mirriors yours:
On the 2nd Tuesday, I connected my Win7 box to the Internet to install the 2nd Tuesday patches.
After reading a Slashdot article, I uninstalled two patches on the bad-patch list.

Yesterday, I connected it to the Internet to install the August 27 patches.
This was a no go. Windows Update was broken and the Windows Update Troubleshooter was no use.
Only a rollback to a mid-July restore point got the machine going properly again.

My Windows box (which is not my main box) is generally off the Internet, so I don't know why I patched it so promptly.
In the future, I'll wait a few weeks longer before applying patches.
