    From my perspective, I'd rather consider that a "backup".

    There's a spigot at the bottom that's used for draining the tank. It looks just like the kind of valve you attach your garden hose to, and in fact you can attach a garden hose to it. Gravity provides the force to drain the water. This makes it very easy to get the water out with little or no loss.

    This is a good example of what I mentioned about defending what you have if you dont/cant bug out.

    You live in a fairly populated area. What happens when people fleeing/retreating/starving/attacking decide that they want what you have? How will your family defend against a mob or organized threat?
    (Personal firearms and hunting rifles will not be enough)

    This isnt aimed just at you, just an additional angle to what most people here have discussed, which is what they have stored at home.
    Fortune favors the bold.

    Freedom doesn't mean safe, it means free.

    The thing about "defense" is that it has practically nothing to do with guns. (As passed on by CCW9MM)

    I don't see the problem with the OP buying a thousand rounds of bullets, or more. Some people spend their money on ceramic unicorns, I see no reason to criticize them for their purchases.
