We have more 20 gauge shells and .410 shells than we know how to effectively store... Working on the others as we speak.

If you reload it may be easier to have the supplies for shotgun shells and a small prepared stash, than a bunch of loaded shells.

Hard to say ...
I believe in training with what you will shoot in PD.
So my PD ammo (Gold Dot) becomes training ammo after a couple of years and is replaced by fresh one.
Of course I also have a couple of cases of Winchester FMJ 9mm.
Another reason I like to have mostly 9mm guns and .357 (for the lady); makes it simpler.

The second rule: "Bring enough gun"

I answered split on the poll, but in reality any of it will work for SD if it's what I have on hand at the moment I need it.
People were shooting animals and other people for a couple of hundred years before someone told them that they had to have a super high speed hollow point bullet to get the job done.
Most of the deer in north america were killed off with low velocity cast lead bullets long before Speer or Hornady came out with any of their magic bullets. If you put a hole in the vitals, they'll all get the job done. Same goes for zombies and bad guys .
When you've got 'em by the balls, their hearts & minds will follow. Semper Fi.

I have to agree, I may run out of or not be able to afford much SD ammunition. However, I have more than enough FMJ to getter done!

I buy ammo for SD, when I practice I use what I have for SD. I put Mostly SD because I have some .22LR which I don't consider SD ammo, although it could be.
