    You can never have enough.

    yeah, I haven't counted for a while now.

    Just guessing, at least 1000 in each handgun caliber. Probably just under 1000 in each rifle caliber. With 12 different calibers, I bet close to 10000 total. Not counting shotgun (<100 rounds).

    Not sure exactly. Between 22lr,9mm.38 special,357 magnum, 40S&W,20 gauge, 12 gauge, 7.62X39. I am guessing around 8,000 rounds.


    So to tell you the truth........NOT NEARLY ENOUGH.

    Don't know right off the top exactly how much of what. But I don't have nearly enough.
    200 rounds per trip to the range. Ammo supplies drop fast.

    5-10-11
    Down to a few Shot shells, probably a little over 2000 22lr and just what I have in my 9mm.
    9mm is available around here but the prices still are unreasonably high. Some higher than 16.00 almost 17 a box for 50 rounds.
    Once in a blue moon you will find WalMart with the 10 dollar boxes but even they are getting stupid with the price of WWB 15.00 a box of 50.

    Approximately - 2400 rds 9mm, 400 rds 38sp, 400 rds .40, 4500 rds 22lr. Probably will start adding 9mm soon again. Cannot seem to find 38sp though. Ammo is sort of like guns - never enough.

    back home, none

    here, however, I've got well over 10k of each .50 cal, .308, and several thousand rounds of .223 and 9mm. granted, it's not really "mine" so I haven't voted

    I currently have:

    .22LR--750
    .9mm -- 250
    .45acp -- 750
    12 Gauge -- 50

    Totaling -- 1800 rounds.

    However, I buy whenever I can get .45 acp, so that number changes...

    In the first place, why tell the world, in a public forum, what you have; guns or ammo? Do you not think that anti-gunners are monitoring such forums as these, and taking names? Mentioning a new gun that you bought is one thing. But listing one's entire forearms collection, and now the obsessive amount of ammunition one has stashed away, are not, in my opinion, wise actions.

    And how much stockpiling is based on paranoia, obsession and massive insecurity? Are we all waiting for the great shootout with terrorist invaders? Or the complete breakdown of society, as in some science fiction novel? Don't worry; I feel the urge too. But that urge, uncontrolled, is why we cannot purchase ammunition normally in the stores any more.

    That urge, unfulfilled, is also why so many myriads of people have gotten into handloading; people who do not really want to enjoy it is an experimental, and satisfying hobby; thus people who are not good or even safe at it; but who merely want to have access to more, stockpiled ammunition. That is why we have such difficulty getting powders and primers, not to mention brass.

    We should be asking, "How much is enough?"

    First of all, they do not know who I am here. They just know that I am 1 more gun nut out of a 100,000 or more other gun nuts that live in Dallas. They see how much I buy or spend anyway everytime they run a background check on me and when I use my credit/debit card for gun or ammo purchases. No big deal. No way around it unless you just deal with cash and buy guns from individuals.

    Second of all, I don't buy a bunch of ammo and just sit on it. I use it at the range often. If I see it cheap, I will buy a lot of it. But I also shoot a lot of it. I do agree with you that most people think they are waiting for that great shootout and think they need to stock up as much as they can before they go to a war that will never happen. I have never believed in that. I just like to go to the range and shoot. The main reason why ammo is so hard to find most of the time is just supply and demand. There are a lot more people with guns now then there use to be and the ammo companies just can't keep up. Look at how many more CCL's are out there now compaired to last year. People need ammo for practice.

    Camaro 73, Good reply to Teuthis.

    I've been watching this thread just waiting for his type of response. I knew it was just a matter of time.

    My ammo purchases aren't made out of "Obsession", "Paranoia", or "Massive Insecurity". I'm an avid Waterfowler, Deer Hunter, Small game of all kinds, and target shooting.
    I grew up with guns and will always have guns, so I may as well be as proficient with all of them as possible. That means practicing, that means buying ammo, and I will continue to do so until I legally can't or just plain get too old to do it anymore.

    I agree with Camaro73 also. I could care less who knows how much ammo I have or what kind of guns I own. I dont hoard ammo or guns but shoot regularly and my ammo stash (what little it is) regularly goes to near zero and then I go purchase more when I find it cheep and available. Also, just because people post on forums doesnt mean that they are totally telling the truth. I'm sure some guys post they have more ammo and guns than they actually do to make them look cool and I'm sure some post less than what they have because of fear of the government coming to there house and seizing up there ammo or guns and putting them on some sort of watch list. Personally I dont think that way. If you want to know how much ammo I keep, I dont mind telling you. Sounds like a honest question to me!
