At this point I've stock piled ammo at the family's acreage. I've got my own stock pile here at home. Somewhere along the way I started packing a ammo box of (around 350 rounds of .357 Sig) every time I would travel to the family acreage (about a two hour drive). Then I just stopped packing it, and just stored the extra ammo in a (metal) ammo box it in the trunk.
When I take an overnight trip I carry my subcompact Glock 33 and have my standard Glock 31 in a Safepacker holster behind the passenger's seat (somewhere easy to reach).
I was headed up last weekend (to prep a few spots for deer season) and my wife noticed I've stopped taking the ammo box out of the trunk. She asked why.
I've been going back and forth enough that I left it there, mostly, out of lazyness. Why unpack something your just going to repack in a week or two. Besides, you never know when you might need it.
She suggested it might be a bad idea, especially if stopped by the police. She also suggested there was no point storing something worth $150+ in the trunk of the car, when I had more than enough ammo at the destination and at home. She expressed I carry plenty ammo in mags for the trip, not considering the ammo she had.
She made some points, and don't read into it that she was being argumentative. We normally take around 100 rounds (each) of ammo for target practice, she asked if I need any of my rounds, and that was when I told her I've just been leaving a ammo container / box of 350 in the car.
Arrived home Sunday, and I unpacked it. Thoughts?
