    A 500 rd order of DoubleTap's 124gr JHP 9mm is ~$250 delivered, and those are using the Speer GD bullet. That isn't nearly as expensive as store-bought 20 rd packs of Speer's GD. ($250 for .40, $295 or so for .45ACP.)

    How much ammo do you have at home?

    I have about 1,200 rounds in my gun safe.

    Nothing fancy, just FMJ and JHP from the sporting goods store.

    That's right, this sweet baby was made in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Retails for about a hundred and nine, ninety five. It's got a walnut stock, cobalt blue steel, and a hair trigger. That's right. Shop smart. Shop S-Mart. You got that?

    Actually, range ammo is probably good for zombies because you'll be going for headshots

    Enough that the UPS drivers know to just bring it in for my wife so she won't have to wait for me to get home and move it off the porch. I buy what is least expensive for my AK's and such and stack it deep. For my handguns I try to keep at least 500 HD rounds and about that many practice rounds plus reloading stuff for them.

    5-6000 rounds of various ammo, mostly pistol in about 6 calibers, some 22, and rifle mixed in. The pistol is mostly FMJ or plain old lead. Then I have enough stuff to build a few thousand rounds more. Man, I am ready for tax season be done so I can go shoot some of this stuff up.
    Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.

    I started counting and finally gave up. Over 6000 rounds of battle rifle and defensive handgun stuff. Plenty of reloads for my hunting guns. Plenty of ammo for my CCW guns. a few thousand 17 HMR, 22 Mag and 22 LR. Lots of powder, primers, brass, lead and the moulds to cast it into everything but .22 caliber. I'm glad I live in the country and not under the fire codes cause I wouldn't pass. I do have a fire resistant tornado shelter under my house where I can keep everything in a controlled environment. Oh forgot to mention the shotgun ammo. I've got plenty of that also. While I was checking I noticed that a bunch of it came from my father and is still paper hull loads. Even got some really old .22 Super-X ammo. Before they unwrap my fingers from a empty gun it's not going to be cold. My fingers will probably be burned onto the barrel.

    Forgot to say that I reload, so I guess I have the fixings for 3-4,000 more rounds.
