I probably shot more 5.56 and .45 in the year or so immediately after Sandyhook than I have in the last year. I had the ammunition and reloading components on hand in sufficient supply to do so. I haven't shot as much in the last year simply because my time has be
en spent elsewhere. I haven't stopped buying ammunition or components though.

I DID get caught somewhat short on my preferred .22LR ammunition, and severely curtailed my use of it. Its only in tbe last month that I've been able to find it again, and re stock.
I shoot a metric ton of ammo a year
when it got to 1.00 a round ( self defense ).I stopped shooting it
I bought a pallet.of 22 RF back when you could. ....I got 5,000 rounds left
Thats about a 50 cal ammo can full of loose rounds......yeah I shoot a lot
but I don't hoard it...when it is gone it is gone........
hoarders are stupid.....IMO
........law is not necessarily justice, nor is justice necessarily legal
