Curious, has anyone here ever had a shutter "wear out"? If so, what happened and how many clicks did it take to wear it out?

Yes, many times (yeah I like to hear that clicking sound).  Usually the camera won’t take photos anymore.  Instead you get a muffled or partial click sound and an error message.  The recorded image usually has part of it blacked out.
