    I need to go shopping, I have 11 in my gun and 9 in my spare mag. That was my box of Speer gold dots that I bought with the gun. Trying to get some Federal HST's but they're backordered everywhere. Guess I need to go shopping tomorow. I've been meaning to go get more ammo. Reminds me I need to get to the range as well.

    Check out www.streichers.com they usually have HSTs in stock...
    I've usually got a few thousand total. More than enough probably, but I wish I had more.

    I keep a minimum of 600 rounds per caliber. Some of it is 1200 round when it comes to 45/40/223.

    If my house every catches on fire, I will not be able to allow any fire personnel inside for their own safety.

    I usually keep a minimum of 1000 rounds. About 500 are 9mm FMJ and about 100 JHP, assorted #4 shot and double 00 buck with a few slugs just in case needed, and always a couple hundred 22 CCI mini mags.

    Ive got lots of ammo a mix of FMJ and HP.
    I do alot of machine work on guns and I give the owner the option of paying me money or ammo. Lots of guys like the idea and pay with ammo which is fine by me.

    I've got cases of stuff laying around. If it ever gets to TEOTAWKI, it'l lbe great to barter with.
    I would rather stand against the cannons of the wicked than against the prayers of the righteous.

    How much is enough

    I feel that, in a home invasion scenario, if I cannot convince the BGs to leave me alone with a full clip of OO buck shot then I am doomed. I currently have about 500 'target' rounds on hand. .40 cal S&W. and my wife carries a 380 with jhp. But these are backups if a horde of barbarians attack. Once again, if I can't stop it with a shotgun, may God have mercy on my soul.

    That always the question..with no definate answer.

    If you got the job done with what you had...it was enough.
    If you run dry and get killed, it wasnt.

    I stock several thousand rounds of various kinds of ammunition for defense and practice.

    i actualy try prepare for prolonged SHTF for when im home. its not uncommon for bloss mountain to become an island during the spring thaw. and its better to have and not need...
    that said im not out on the back forty burying cache's and such. though i might go and expand the basement for a bigger reloading room and a 50M indoor pistol range(it gets pretty cold in the winter) maybe set it up to get a decent zero on my rifles too but nothing too fancy.

    Most of my stock is FMJ - the JHP for SD is cycled through at the range during the first round of firing and then I use the FMJ stuff.
