Let me look at my spread sheet.

15k 556 ar
5k 223 for bolt guns
25k 308 175gr
3.5k 308 150 gr
22.5k 9mm
30.5k 45acp
then about 10k rounds of a bunch of other stuff that I don't shoot much. I think I can hold out for a little bit.
Some people can't afford to stock pile ammo but I guess I "deserve to b ammoless". ^this is just stupid and over the line people were asking about earlier in the thread....

Is it really over the line, or are you just pissed because you didn't think ahead and build your own stockpile? Whether you can "afford" it or not is immaterial really. You reduce the amount that you shoot and put half of what you purchase away in your stock. Over time it builds up and at some point you decide that you do not need to build your stores any more and you can shoot to your heart's content. But when you do, in normal times, you replenish your stores for the lean times.

If you got caught with your pants down by the panic and now you can't find any that is no one else's fault but your own.

Calling someone stupid who did have foresight and did build an inventory is uncalled for. In my way of thinking it is smart.

Trust me if I can afford it so can you. Priorities do you have cable (I don't) do you have internet (I use my phone or library) what vehicle do you drive? There are always cuts that can be made I am the single provider with my wife daughter and brother in law living with me. And I make just enuf to have no gov assistance.

I do share info or links that have ammo with friends, I go in with friends to do group buys on ammo, but after I buy it I shoot it or stock pile it, I don't sell it.
If things got real bad I may trade it for things I need, but it will need to get real bad before that happens because ammo is not the only thing I stocked up on.
The way I look at it "If you snoozed you loose!"

Got some links? Im looking for 10mm....also probably not a good idea to trade ammo in a shtf situation unless its someone you trust....you might loose the rest of your ammo.

I have a buddy that found a way to help both himself and others at the same time. He has made deals with a few people that he will load X amount of ammunition for them if they supply the components, and let him keep a certain amount of the ammo. He was actually doing this before the shortage began. He has a dillon progressive unit that is capable of producing a lot of ammo quickly.

Friends?? I think I would rethink my friend list. As to what to do...simply tell them that you don't have any extra ammo - for sale or to share.
