    I reload, rule of thumb, 1500 + on hand for all defensive hand guns, I currently have 3200ish rounds on hand for my EDC (EDC and BUG and Wifes all same caliber)(this is not counting defensive rounds only 150ish of that) once I get down between 1500 and 1000 I will run another batch. I have just over 1000 rounds preped (cleaned deprimed sized reprimed and belled) and 800 or so that I need to prep.

    At the house on hand I usually keep 100 rounds of Speer Gold dots which is my primary carry ammo. I keep another 400-500 Independence FMJ. For practice rounds. All .40 S&W. I keep 300 rounds of whatever junky FMJ's I can pick up in 9mm for the carbine, ruger and kel-tek. And I have about 50 Hornady Critical Defense round for the Keltec and 20 hydroshocks left for the Ruger P-89. On a side note if I ever get low on .40's I just run down to the stationwith my pops and he tosses me a couple hundred rounds. Usually we hit up the range together so we eat through his ammo anyways.

    Usually 1000-1300. Right now, about 600-750. Reloads, Factory FMJ, and Gold Dots. Need to get busy I guess.

    How much is enough?
    .380 = 50-75 carry and 300+ range
    9mm = 100+ carry and 1000+ range
    38sp = 100+ carry and 1000+ range
    .357 = 100+ carry and 500+ range
    45acp = 100+ carry and 500+ range
    45colt = 100+ carry and 500+ range

    I never fell like I have as much as I need, but keep as much on hand as I can afford.

    Of actual carry ammo, I have at least 200 rounds in each of my carry calibers (9mm, 9mm Makarov, .40, .45 and .38/.357). Now if you add in practice ammo for each caliber, I have a minimum of 1000 rounds of each, above my carry quantity.

    SD/HD ammo, I try to have at least 500 to 1000 on-hand of each caliber I have - 9mm, 12 Ga. and 5.56/.223. Current exception is .357 Mag/.38 Special +P, as I'm still trying to work out what I like, there.

    Range ammo really depends.

    I'm currently still really working on pistol training (I've been shooting for about a year), and depending on the season, I keep anywhere from 3,000+ on-hand, since training classes tend to burn through ammo. I'm looking at ordering 6,000 to 10K rounds some time this spring.

    Currently, I have about 1,000 rounds of various 5.56/.223 and 12-Ga., each., for range fodder. I plan on starting carbine/shotgun classes this spring/summer, and that may cause me to stockpile more, here.

    Yes, I know, I should reload, but for the time being, I'm trading money for time.

    for the 6 or so carry guns in rotation i change out the SD ammo when i change the clocks
    Rem golden Saber ( 9, 40 & 45), silvertips (various 32's & 380) and black talon (38's)

    i have a life time supply so i either have a awful lot of it or i'm old...

    as for practice, i re-load to match the SD characteristics and make it as i need it.
    usually a 500 round/ caliber in reserve for teaching or if I'm timed wrong with the presses to make more fast.
