It depends all on the person bc me personally I jus like looking at my ammo lol I like knowing I have a good amount never enough by any means Bc the way I look at it ammo isn't getting any cheaper and I don't wanna be kicking myself when it cost 20 bucks for the cheap .223 or 40 bucks for cheap 30-30 hell let's hope it never gets there

I think making laws against owning too much ammunition is a great idea!
Let's look at some past and present programs for inspiration!

Prohibition against alcohol...

The war against drugs....

Immigration enforcement....

I'm sure the government will have this 'ammunition problem' licked in no time!

Janet Napolitano is all over that. Or else she'll be called on the carpet.

One can never have enough ammo. I believe a person should have a minimum of 1K rounds for each HD gun and a minimum of 2K rounds for each long gun. I presently store my ammo in 32 50 cal ammo cans and each are full.

Yesterday I picked up 400 rds of winchester white box 9mm 115gr. $99.50 after tax. Used to be $21 per box noe they $23 per box. I have about 500 rds on stand by. Goal is to have 1000 on stand by put away and 500 on hand for an unexpected range trip

If you got more ammo then you can use in one day you are not doing your job and using the stuff to refresh the tree of liberty.

Be sure to rotate through your stash to keep it "fresh". Not really required, but it is recommended. Then again I have some ammo that has been in the stash for some time.
