What they DON'T mention here is that they, 'hunters' at least, are only allowed to have I think it is 20 rounds of ammunition and must account for/turn in every shell casing when they want to replenish it.

Democrats like leader Schumer would love this...
The horror!

Geeze, and I thought California was bad.
I have never had a check done. You could obviously fiddle it if you wanted to. Officially 1000 is what you are allowed. I am happy enough with 1000 for each firearm. You are allowed to reload most at the club do. I have 5 guns at the moment so that's 5000 allowed. Guns must be kept in a approved cabinet. The police check the house security alarms ect and that the cabinet is properly bolted to the wall before approving the application.

Here in the US many would stockpile far more than the Government allows just because they restrict it. Same thing with the restrictions on firearms. It just chaps my ass to be told that I can't (XYZ) by the government when there is no logical reason for the restriction.

Of course, I don't have or do anything that is prohibited by the Government.

Any links or specific sites to review?

1000 rounds aint anything. Just the last time I took my two daughters, age 11 & 12, to the range to shoot their 22's, they shot 1700 rounds. They wanted to shoot more but thats all I had at the time.
