30K for day to day practice would be great, but if you need more than a standard load out of "duty" ammo you're dead anyway.
Nobody said you could sling it with one more LOADED mag. Hand it over!

I think this is mostly relative. If I could afford, I would have 30K rounds. I can't, so I don't. Nor would I suggest to a newbie they acquire that much. Seems in that situation, 30K is a lot, and 5 mags is not enough. (I DO know people who could afford that much ammo, and if they asked, I'd tell them no, it couldn't hurt to get that much.)

Bank on this: if ammo ever gets plentiful enough and cheap enough again, I WILL be stocking it in far greater quantities than in the past.

What the hell is wrong with owning 30,000 rds of ammo. I do. I don't plan on carrying it with me. But lots of guys are bitching they don't have ammo to shoot now. I do and love it. Shoot all the time. Some guns I have 30 rds for and others 5,000. I buy some kind of ammo every week. I know people who have way more than me. We just love to shoot all the time and a 1,000 rds total is easy to go thru in a day.

It's not that there is any thing wrong with owning 30,000 rounds, its that it's not very realistic for most people. Most people will not be able to afford to go out and buy that much ammo unless they spread it out over several years. Even if they can, they have to find a place to store it.

I've seen your collection. I would think you'd actually have more...?

Last time she asked me to go into her purse and get keys , I cried and was lost in action for two days..! Eeeek..! I carry an LEO in her purse , avoids that whole 911 thing..!

On a serious note , 30,000 rds..?WOW . I'll have to refinance my house..! EEeek..!

1,000 this month
2,500 next month with tax return
1,000 following month
5,000 at a fantastic sale the next month

Suddenly, temp ammo shortage is meaningless

30K rds of 5.56, packed in the M2A1 cans would be 36 ammo cans. Cover the stack with a sheet of plywood, use it for a desk.

30K rounds of 7.62x54R would be slightly over 68 spam cans. I could use that as a really big table.
