    I think its too little. At least for some.

    I have heard maybe all my life that .22Lr might be used someday as barter goods. Well, we have seen it happen now. After sandy hook, (almost too late), I went and bought 4,500 additional rounds of 22 Lr. That probably gives me near 10,000 rounds of .22.

    The thing is that I actually shoot it. I have a conversion kit for my AR, and shoot it in .22 Lr converted. I practice pistol with an M&P 22, so as not to use much of my 9mm.

    Factor in taking various training courses: Tactical Response requires each student have 1,000 rounds for their two day pistol course. 1,500 rounds for their Fighting Rifle course, AND an additional 500 rounds pistol ammo for that course.

    Heres how I really see it; You get what you can afford. And its a marathon, not a race. You can add to your stockpile little by little as normal price ammo shows up, but the key is to keep adding. A box here, and a box there, really ads up over time.

    I only require a few different calibers, .22, .32, .380, .38, 9MM, .40, .454 and 7.62x39, 51, 54 and not to forget the seldom fired 30-30, .35, .308 and 44-40.

    Most used are in bold.

    I think at last count, I had about 65K rounds divided across 9 calibers split in 3 locations in preparation for ZPAW/SHTF.

    I am in really good shape. The only problem I'm having is where to put all of my stash.

    The other day I was trying to pull open a file cabinet drawer and it was stuck. I kept tugging until I finally got it open and Lo and Behold! The damn thing was full of ammo!

    I forgot I put it there! There was about 3,000 rounds!

    All I could say was "MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ME!"

    Had a similar experience the other day. I was looking for something in one of my storage buildings, and found a case of 5.56 I forgot I had!

    As long as I have a couple thousand rounds for my my Airsoft guns I guess I can protect the homestead.

    I guess, as long as I'm doing that, I oughta get 1-2k rounds in 9mm, .40, and .45 along with 6k rds of .22 and 7.62 x 39. Might take a while though. Inexpensive ammo is hard to find although I did just lucky and found some 9mm JHP for $13.80 x 5 boxes of 50 and a brick of .22 CCI Mini Mags. Good thing I like Top Ramen and baked potatoes otherwise I couldn't feed my pistola's and rifles.

    Is it true leaving ammo in hot places like about 85 degrees for extend periods of time, like all Summer, will shorten the life of that ammo. I remember reading it somewhere but don't know for sure if it's true. I know heat has an effect on a lot of things since I live in the desert we find that kind of stuff out fast. Anything plastic or rubber and batteries have short life spans.

    Not an issue! It's a conditioned building!

    85 degrees??? In South Louisiana, that's an unconditioned storage building on a sunny day in the winter! Summertime, it'd be more like 130 degrees! As I said, though, my storage has A/C, so no problem!

    I totally agree. That's how I do it.
    every paycheck I buy a couple boxes and add it to my ammo cans. It adds up to thousands very quickly!
    And when I go shooting I always replace what I shoot (that's only IF I TAKE FROM MY STOCK) I prefer to buy what I'm gonna shoot and not pinch from my supply...

    There's only 11 calibers and several are the same except different brand/type. I didn't organize it that great.
