Default How Much Ammo do you stockpile ?

I didn't see a general Gun forum that would include rifles and handguns so I'll ask this here and in the handgun forum....

I keep a couple hundred rounds of three different types of ammo.

Am I an ammo horder? Does that seem excessive?

What's your ammo stock look like ?

I stop buying, when I feel comfortable, whether that be 200 rounds or 1000 for each one.

Ammo is pretty easy to Stock up on you find something for the right price and it just makes good fiscal sense to buy in bulk. I like having a thousand rounds just to be safe
