I thought I had enough, then I went shooting every day for a week (only thing I could think of doing on my vacation).

My 1000 rounds (for the 1 gun I had) went fast.

I'm going to be slowly building it back up, but it feels like it's taking forever.

Good.

I have about 500 of 9mm, 150 of 308 and about 150 shotgun cartridges and thought I was just an ammo hoarder. I think 1000 rounds of each would be a good comfort level,

I have found kids and guns have insatiable appetites!

No matter how much food or ammo i try to stockpile against "lean" times, its always getting eaten!

This is one topic where the classic American saying applies...More is ALWAYS better...

When you think you have enough...get more!!!
