    Finally reached my "comfortable" number on ammo

    I have gotten extremely lucky the past couple weeks in my search for .22 and 9mm ammo. I don't know how I did it but nearly every time I walked into Walmart the ammo was available. The numbers I wanted to hit were 10,000 rounds of .22 and 5,000 rounds of 9mm . This morning I reached that goal. I'd say 90% of it has been purchased at my local Walmart. I also have about 1,000 rounds of 12 gauge in various loads. I only shoot a moderate amount of ammo each month so this should be enough to last me for several years and through another shortage or two. Finally I can rest easy knowing I am very well stocked on the calibers I use most.

    Also the walmart where I purchased most of my ammo has routinely had .40 and .45 on the shelf every time I went in to buy 9mm. I don't own guns in those calibers but if I did it seems there wouldn't be a problem obtaining the ammo. Hopefully everything is returning to normal but now that I have what I feel is plenty of my calibers I won't have to be looking for a looooong time

    Well done.

    Sorry to get off-topic, but anybody watch "The Walking Dead"? Love the show, but I kind of laughed when one character described his stock of weaponry to another.

    "Six shotguns, two high-powered rifles, and a number of handguns."

    "Ammo?"

    "Seven hundred rounds, assorted."

    Seven hundred?!? I think most of us are a little better prepared than THAT for a zombie apocalypse, thank you very much.

    Nice. So your going to shoot from this stash? I was content having a nice even number of 9mm, but every time I bought/shot 9mm I would try to add a little to my stash. Been an ongoing battle for me - always trying to save more, shoot more and started adding more calibers - sure haven't found any stopping points myself - but I've gained more stacks of ammo. Don't be surprised if you not truly content.
    The stupidity of some people NEVER ceases to amaze me.

    A buddy texted me this morning...the Wally World near us finally got some ammo in (or at least got ammo in that actually made it to the shelf). Fair amount of 40 and 45, but also few boxes of Federal 100ct boxes. I picked up my max...one. I then called my dad...who drove down and picked up his max. It's sloooowly started to creep back in SW Ohio. I know it's different in other areas of the US, but here I think I'm beginning to see the light...I think.

    My plan is to keep my ammo count at these numbers by buying only what I plan to shoot from now on and circulating the new purchases with the "first in, first out" method of keeping fresh ammo stocked up. I also bought one of those vacuum pack sealers that are normaly used to pack steaks and vegetables for the freezer. I sealed up ten boxes last night and will seal up the rest over the next weekend when time allows.
