    It wouldn't have to be that big. Based on the size of the 500 round case of .223 ammo I bought a couple of weeks ago, 1 million rounds would take up about 312 square feet. That's a cube a tad less than 7 feet on a side. On the other hand, it would weight quite a bit (more than 14 tons).

    Look for a new Ammunition possession limit law to be proposed in Sacramento any second now.

    Shall we assume that $0.10 is a fair average for the cost of one round, some cost more, some less, with or without reloading savings.

    So, this guy had one hundred thousand dollars of ammo.

    $100K?
    He was certainly expecting more to hit the fan than I can imagine.

    I hope they auction it off.

    Is there a limit on the number of rounds the State of California will allow a person to "stockpile"? And, if I read the story correctly, the State is going to subject him to psychological testing because he was trying to run away from a house (containing 1,000,000 rounds of ammunition) that was on fire?...

    Sounds pretty smart to me...

    According to the article, he was trying to run toward the house.

    One of the many things that upsets me about this story is the huge violation of the fellow's privacy, and lack of concern for his security.

    Imagine a story like this:

    "Firefighters today, responding to a call at 123 Main St, the home of Joe Bob Moneybags, while putting out the fire came across dozens of Picassos, millions of dollars in jewelry and fine watches, and several hundred thousand dollars in bearer bonds in the fire safe. Stay tuned for our extensive coverage of the items in his home, their value, and what he might have been collecting them for..."

    What are they thinking??!?!?

    Where did you find that picture?
    It's of an On*One bicycle bag, those bikes are made in Yorkshire, England by a crazy guy called Grant. I visited him back in 2000 to buy an On*One Inbred, I still have it. It's a 851 steel frame single speed MTB.

    Do you have one of his bikes or is that a random picture you found?

    like he was approaching that 'how much ammo do you need' number!

    I bet that if I owned two dozen single shot .22's and 1,000,000 rounds of .22 ammo they would find something "illegal" and arrest me too.
