    I mean, you aren't going to stave off military action against yourself with 1000 rounds of 9mm handgun ammo are you?
    If you are doing it with a handgun, you are destined to fail.

    A handgun is the LAST thing you want to use in a fight.


    I'd work on the proper mindset before I worried about ammo because all the ammo in the world isnt going to do you any good if you dont have the proper mindset.

    God forbid we have a disaster that causes massive food shortages, because a lot of people will starve to death and the ones that don't starve will be killed by the people who hoarded the ammo. Just sayin'

    Also, buying in bulk is just cheaper.
    Not always.

    Do the math before you buy. That is if you have a choice to compare between. If not and you have to, or feel the need that you need to buy it "right now"....good-luck finding it.

    4-yrs ago same thing, stuff went up in price and some stuff became scarce for a while because like now, the demand went up. Then supplies returned and prices also returned to normal.

    But this time everything is getting scoffed up.

    These first-time buyers are buying firearms and a box ah ammo and stuffing it in their sock draws. Where it will stay. Then 6-yrs from now they will be trading it all in for ah $10.00 gift card to Target.

    Eh? The one with ammo can just go hunting.
