    About 1,000 rounds of 9mm, and maybe 800 rounds of 38 special at the moment. Plus miscellaneous boxes of defensive loads, etc. Reloading is enjoyable, and generally stays far ahead of the amount I get to shoot. Never thought I\'d get to say that!!! :O Steven

    As bumper can testify I can reach in the safe and pick most any caliber. When I bought the safe I bought the 4 foot wide just so I could stock all my ammo. 800 lb safe with 800 lbs of ammo, bolted to the concrete floor, go ahead and steal it if you can.

    Put it to you this way. If my local liberal toilet paper,the Washington Post ever found out how much ammo I have, I\'d be labeled a gun nut danger to our community.
    The Washington Times would just call me \"prudent\":P.:D

    Between 8,000 and 10,000 .45 ACP plus a few thousand bullets and 8,000 to 10,000 cases
    Whoops that should be 800 to 1,000 rounds of .45 ACP plus a few thousand bullets and 8,000 to 10,000 cases
    About 300 9 mm plus a few hunderd 9mm bullets and cases
    About 200 or 300 .38 special rounds plus a few hunderd .38 bullets and cases
    About 700 .22
    About 500 .38-55 Winchester bullets with about 200 brass cases
    About 700 to 800 Colt .45 bullets with about 200 or 300 brass cases
    About 300 to 500 .38 special
    About 200 brass cases for my .500 Magnum with about 400 to 500 bullets

    3783 rounds of .45 in the house now. God knows how much of .22 as there was a killer deal on it at some shop in Cali yesterday. Talk about crappy drive home, I did the speed limit hoem the whole way from Cali to Vegas. Did not want to get stopped in Cali with an arsenal in the back.
