I try to think of what is harder to find and buy at least a thousand when it is cheap. 9 x 18-1000, 7.62 x 25 1000, 7.62 x 39 -2000, 7.62 x 54 1200 in cans, 5.56 2000 (1000 in cans and 1000 mixed for plinking and a few hundred high end rounds) 12 guage 800. That makes me a threat to the democrats. If I buy some MREs they will probably bug my house!

Default How much ammo

It sounds like I may be a hoarder.
Without differentiating between SD and range ammo, I may have:
11 LR - 1800
30-30 - 360 and components for another 400
.380 - 2900 and components for another 1200
9MM - 5300 and components for another 1800
40S&W - 4900 and components for another 1800

No, I don't trust the government. Hopefully that will change next year.

I am definitely a hoarder. For guns that are strictly for hunting I keep about 50 or a 100 loaded up with supplies to reload plenty more if needed. For guns that have more application to a SHTF scenario.....well...... I'm not saying.

IMHO, we shoiuld all stock enough ammo, food and medical supplies for our own needs, and the needs of at least two neighbors that didn't have the foresight to stock their own.

In a SHTF situation, you'll need all the armed allies you can get, whether they had any foresight or not.

I just can't imagine who cares what I've got.

I don't care what others stocked up...

[/QUOTE]Seriously...if you have no fears of our government, then one can always restock. If you oddly enough, do not trust our fine government, then more, a lot more, might be in order.[/QUOTE]

I don't see what is odd about not trusting the Govt. I don't have any, lost it all in the foreclosure.
