    I didn't see a general Gun forum that would include rifles and handguns so I'll ask this here and in the handgun forum....

    I keep a couple hundred rounds of three different types of ammo.

    Am I an ammo horder? Does that seem excessive?

    What's your ammo stock look like ?

    I stop buying, when I feel comfortable, whether that be 200 rounds or 1000 for each one.

    Ammo is pretty easy to Stock up on you find something for the right price and it just makes good fiscal sense to buy in bulk. I like having a thousand rounds just to be safe

    I thought I had enough, then I went shooting every day for a week (only thing I could think of doing on my vacation).

    My 1000 rounds (for the 1 gun I had) went fast.

    I'm going to be slowly building it back up, but it feels like it's taking forever.

    Good.

    I have about 500 of 9mm, 150 of 308 and about 150 shotgun cartridges and thought I was just an ammo hoarder. I think 1000 rounds of each would be a good comfort level,

    Why is that a problem?

    Think about this....how long would any forum last if no question could be posted more than once?

    Not long.

    I have found kids and guns have insatiable appetites!

    No matter how much food or ammo i try to stockpile against "lean" times, its always getting eaten!
