    Every time I shop at Wal*Mart I pick up a few boxes. It does add up after a while and the price isn't going down, so consider it saving money in the long run.

    I still chuckle when I head a co-worker say, "I told the fire department if my house is on fire, flood the basement and run!"

    I'm not sure...if I find out I'll let you know. So far my 1000 rounds of .308, about the same amount of 5.56, 800 or so rounds of .45 and 600 or so of 9mm and I still find myself checking for deals every time I'm around a gun store

    Way too much is barely enough.

    How much ammo is enough

    I come from a computer background.....that question to me can't be logically processed

    seriously....IMO with our new politcal climate coming, 3000-4000 FMJ rounds for each caliber is minimum, for handguns an additional 1000 rounds of self-defense ammo
