    Who's bought ammo before the firearm?

    Well, the check will come in soon. Meanwhile, I've been buying 12 gauge 2 3/4" and 3" shells toward my impending purchase of the 12ga HD shotgun. I figure ammo won't get cheaper, and I can get 20-30 shells of PD and practice ammo for $20. Has anyone else ever started stocking up for an impending firearm purchase?

    Heck, I've bought reloading equipment before the firearm.

    Me too. Shot my own handloads in my 22-250 before it ever saw factory ammo. But anyhow.......I guess we'll allow your reply since it qualifies as investing in the future feeding of your firearm prior to purchasing that firearm. :)

    I actually don't have a 9mm pistol in my stuff right now but I am buying 9mm everytime I can find a buy on it. Now I just need to find a buy on a 9mm weapon.........

    yes - surplus 7.62x39 while shopping around for the best gun deal (already decided what gun just wanted the best deal) and then waiting the 7 days.

    Didn’t buy the ammo first but a friend gave me some 22 Hornet ammo so I bought a barrel for my TC Contender in order to shoot it.

    I have tons of ammo for firearms that I do not own and may never own, but I know one thing...it won't go down in value.

    Never done it. I did almost buy a nice set of 1911 grips though so that I would have to buy a 1911...kind of a strange justification, and I didn't do it.

    Had 1200 rounds before I even knew what .40S&W I wanted.
    I have 2200 rounds of 5.45x45 (AK74) ammo, no AK yet.
    Have a few other calibers without a gun, those just come to mind first.

    Another Guilty As Charged

    Knew I wanted a Colt Mustang. My 1911's needed a baby brother so I stocked up on ammo brass and bullets while I was looking. Then came across a Colt Nitelite for $300!

    This was definitely me the other week. Last Monday I just bought a NIB Glock 17. About 2 weeks before that I had 1000 rounds of 9mm and no 9mm handgun lol
