Gonzo, not from a government gun-control perspective but from hitting your target gun-control perspective, 1,700 rounds is just wasting it it'd seem to me.

I'm guessing that wouldn't go over very well here in the U.S., but it could happen one day?

That's actually a very good idea.

Americans

know

I'm all about

gun safety. I think that's reasonable gun control we can all live with. Effective immediately I have asked my Czar of Home & Hearth to initiate this program and have allocated unlimited funds borrowed outside of our legal budget process to donation bundlers who have proved their capabilities to me that work in the Marketing private sector, which I fully support, to help with communications.

I'm Barry Sotoro and I approve this message.

Thanks, we did have a good time. My girls love to shoot and anytime we are out there, it's not a waste of time or ammo.

I think 1000 rounds of each caliber is more than adequate...

If a situation ever arose where you NEED that much:
A. You're pretty much effed.
B. You can't carry it anyway.

Short of a domestic war, or total collapse you will never NEED 500 rounds in storage.

Still, it can't hurt to have 1000 rounds, it ain't getting any cheaper...

Usually, I like to keep 2 bricks per caliber on hand.

I've bought bricks of .22lr of 500 and 550, it just depends on the manufacturer.
