Default I found one of the guys who is causing the problem!

was talking to a guy I know this weekend. he's a "wheeler and dealer" from car parts to gun stuff. not an FFL though.

I heard him mention to a "newbie" that he suggested 5 magazines per gun, and 30k rounds of ammo, per gun as your "standard" home storage set-up.

30k rounds?! really?

maybe that's why there's no ammo in the stores...guys out there telling new owners they need to rush out and stock up on 30,000 rounds of ammo to store in their basement.

30k rounds....thats totally unrealistic. You'd need a full size pickup just to haul your ammo. You can forget being mobile what that much ammo.

Hell i got 300 rounds of 7.62x54R in a .50 cal ammo can and i wouldnt want to carry i too far.

30,000 is a heck of a lot. I think a more reasonable amount is 1000 rounds per gun, meaning if you have 2 guns that use the same caliber you should have 2000 rounds of it.

Right now I wish I had more than I do, I had been slowly stocking up over the last year but I also like to shoot it so I am short of my 1000 round target per gun at the moment.

Yea me too, for the last year or so ive been buying a box or two week. Sometimes ill buy bulk if i run across someone who is selling because they sold the gun that shoots it. Case in point, a friend of my fil is selling me 800 rds of 7.62x39 for 200 bucks cause he sold his AK.

that's my thought process as well. 1,000 rounds per caliber. if SHTF, I have the ability to carry a couple hundred on my person of primary and about 100 rounds of handgun.

In my opinion, that's more than enough for your average gunfight. I can resupply later, either from my "home station" or by looting bodies of the dead.

if SHTF I do NOT want to make a Waco stand in my home. We all know how that worked out for them. I want to be light, mobile, and have a small logistical footprint. I'm headed to the woods, and plan to live off the land, and avoid as many people as possible, NOT go walking the streets of the cities looking for a fight. (that's assuming some type of economical collapse. if we go martial law and have another revolution...that's a different story)


but this guy was also trying to sell the "green tip" ammo at .80 per round, claiming that it's the only thing that'll punch through the armor that homeland security is going to be wearing when they come to your door.

he gave me a funny look when I said "I have a 3/8" plate of steel out in the garage that I punched holes in like it was paper, using standard lead core, copper jacket ammo, even my hollow point hunting rounds were punching through it like it was nothing"

To my buddy that I'm talking about...if you happen to be on this forum...I love ya man, but I think your position was just a little off the mark! haha.

There's no ammo because the government just placed a few billion dollars worth of ammo order. They take priority over civilian sales.

I don`t have that many, maybe a 3rd of that, but I do have enough stuff to make that many, & yes a 1000 rds. or so sounds about right. Some of my guns I don`t have any ammo for, some I may only have 50 or 100 rds for, but yes a 1000 rds. per gun sounds about right. On the other hand I am that guy that if there is 10 boxes on the shelf, I buy em all, if I can.............

30,000 rds per gun? WHAT AN IDIOT!

For 5.56, at recent prices, that is on the order of $25,000-$30,000 for AMMO.

I have a Winchester 71 in .348. I doubt I will shoot 100 rounds of THAT the rest of my life. But at $75 a box, 30K rds of that would be $112,500. I have a few oddballs in .32 S&W and .38 S&W that I MIGHT have 100-150 rounds.

Someone should take a desktop calculator and beat some sense into him!

.500 S&W magnums are like $3.50 a round. So far I have purchased ONE box of twenty. I am way, way behind on that 30K minimum. But it would only take a second.... A second mortgage!
