    What's in Your Car?

    Well I'm at the folks for the Labor Day Weekend. I just did a mental inventory of the ammunition and firearms in my vehicle.

    100 .40 S&W cartridges (loose, in cardboard box)
    200 9x19 cartidges (loose, in bug out bag)
    52 more 9x19 cartridges (3 magazines @ 17 rounds each, 1 more in the chamber)
    100 .44 Magnum cartridges (in boxes)
    30 more .44 Magnum cartridges (10 in magazine, 20 in cartridge belt)
    I estimate 100 7.62x39 cartridges, 50 in stripper clips.

    There's more... I'm being conservative

    All to be launched from a P89, an SKS, and an 1894.

    It's probably actually more than that, and that's not counting what is on my person at the moment. I have in my immediate access three handguns and two long guns with over 600 rounds ready to launch...

    Have I been subconsciously responding to the recent concerns in the news... I didn't deliberately do this. At the very least I should get an ammo can or something. I don't know what I was really hoping to accomplish with this setup. It's mostly FMJ ammo too. Honestly I think I'm insane... this setup makes no tactical sense at all.

    What's in your car?

    Well, discounting the guns I'm not sure if they're in the trunk or not:

    FAL with extra bandolier of 8 20 round mags, loaded (180 total)
    20 loaded FAL mags or thereabouts in the range box
    A couple .22LR semi-autos
    2.5-3k rounds of .308
    2k of 223
    5k+ of 9mm
    1k of .45 ACP.
    250+ of 44 mag and special
    Enough Sig 226 magazines to fill a small gym bag (about 50 now at last count).
    Box of miscellaneous other magazines.
    12 loaded AK 30s.
    1 loaded Beta C mag, AR-15.
    20 loaded 30 round AR-15 mags.
    At least 2k rounds of 22 LR.

    The spare tire, hyraulic jack, and a bunch of targets, hearing protection, and a case of clay pidgeons, along with some tools.

    When I go out of town, I bring with a couple other guns as well, but my trunk doubles as ammo storage more than anything else.

    Euc - ''makes no tactical sense'' - hey, ''tactical'' is a flexible term dude! You have enough there to be well useful.

    My truck is generally not that heavily equipped - I, like acparmed, have heavy gauge jump cables, first aid kit, several assorted knives, and for guns usually just a Marlin Papoose (broken down in it's case) and box of ammo under back seat, and sometimes 870 rides along too with it's extended mag filled with a ''cocktail'' of goodies.

    Have a great w/e Euc.

    Other than some water and blankets I have to keep my truck "clean" as my job requires entry to local Naval bases.

    The possibility of your car being broken into is probably greater than the potential need of fighting off a small third-world nation. :) That said - dang that's cool!

    UPDATE ON CAR!!!!!

    Based on the current price of oil, the most expensive gas I have ever bought!!! I realized today that it is cheaper to fill my tank with milk! Update next week on how that works out.

    To keep everythng in perspective, (bottled) water is STILL more expensive than diesel or gas.

    OT portion: if fuel gets much more expensive I'll be looking for a gunsafe I can park my truck in... any ideas?

    My, my, I'm feelin' totally insufficient. Most you guys got enough ammo to hole up for months. BTW, what are you going to eat during all that time - you don't have room in your car for food!
