Last month I picked up my first gun, S&W 686+ 4 inch. That was shortly followed by a Mossberg 500. Tomarrow I pick up my first riffle, Marlin .357 as a sidekick to the 686. I have managed to accquire 3000 SD rounds in .357 and 750 rounds of 00 buck.
I wanted something for CC and thought it wise to slightly diversify ammo incase I ever run into difficulty finding .357. I've decided to go with a .40 cal. Considering Berreta PX4 Storm or S&W M&P. I have already ordered 3000 rounds of federal HS 180 grain HP for what ever I end up with.
I consider this to be a BASIC level of protection in the event of civil unrest. One of my coworkers thinks im crazy gathering this arsenal. Eventually I would like to add a AR riffle and S&W 642 with 5000 rounds or so for the AR. I hope I never have to use this ammo and I can pass it all on to my now 2 year old son but I believe within the next 20 years if not soon there will be an event that this arsenal will come in handy and maybe preserve the life of my family.
Guns with out ammo are useless, might as well have a baseball bat. How much ammo do you feel the need to stockpile? Am I crazy???
