How much Ammo do you keep stored?




How much "emergency" ammo do you keep in storage, I'm talking about ammo you don't touch or take to the range. 500 rounds? 1000? more? Just curious.

Color me paranoid, but that is not something we should be broadcasting, given the current political climate. We don't know who is lurking here.

I probably have more stacked away than I really want to know. I tend to pick up another 20-50 (depending on caliber) whenever I see a brand I like/use on sale somewhere.

Very little maybe 50 bullets. I rely on Walmart when I want to go to the range.

not enough. I have a bad habit of dipping into my reserve ammo when I want to go shooting. I buy a few cases, but then if I want to go shooting and my spare cash is tight, i just grab some of my reserve.

I live in California so I don't actually own guns, shoot, reload, or stockpile anything especially lead. If you happen to see something its actually just a figment of your imagination.

Being in Mexico the other day I happened upon a truck carrying 250,000 rds of ammo. Needless to say, I offered to take it off his hands. He was very accommodating. Think it had anything to do with the fact I was wearing a Mexican army uniform?
