    HOW MUCH AMMO IS ENOUGH?

    Answer - HOW MUCH CAN YOU AFFORD AND STORE?

    There is no such thing as enough or too much. When I was working and HAD money before the economy and my "life problems" took hold, Id have on average 2-3k for the AKs and around 1.5K for the handguns and around 1K for the shotguns (between buckshot slugs and hunting loads)

    You guys are too funny. I should have known better than to ask but no one owned up to how much they really have and shoot in a month now. Is it a secret? I promise I won't come to your house to borrow a cup of ammo if I need it.

    As far as I'm concerned, you did the right thing. You can never have too much ammo.

    It is like asking the typical woman " How many pairs of shoes do you need?"

    Never enough. Pack it and stack it until the floor collapses... then there's more room after you clean up the mess for more ammo.

    Enough??? There is really now way to tell if you have enough or not until you need to use it and either run out, or don't. So the question can't really be answered.

    The rule I go by is that the only time you can have too much ammo is if your on fire or trying to swim.
    When you've got 'em by the balls, their hearts & minds will follow. Semper Fi.

    Now that's what I'm talkin' about! Geez they limit how many primers you can buy in a day here because they can't keep any in stock.

    I agree it is never enough. My wife does not share my passion for shooting so I do not have the support financially to store as much as I'd like but I try to buy as often as I can. I'd buy as much as I could afford. It is worth it's weight in lead!

    There is no such thing as too much ammo!!! Well, I guess if you are swimming, there would be a point where a person has too much ammo on them, but there is no such thing as too much ammo. There is such a thing as no more room to store ammo, but that can be taken care of by putting both kids in the same bed and trashing the other one. Then you can stack ammo to the roof in the same foot print the bed took up. If you have no kids, then the other half can sleep on the couch and you can store ammo on their side of the bed.

    You can always park the car outside and store ammo in the garage. If you don't have a garage, well then build one. Then you will have an empty garage, you can store ammo in. Got a yard? Put in some storage boxes out there. Not for the ammo, but for all the furniture you can fit in it so you can store more ammo in a nice climate controlled house. Now that I have started telling you about how there is never any such thing as too much ammo, you can come up with more ways to make room for more ammo. Pet got a place to sleep? Sell or give away the pet along with the bedding place and you will have more room to store ammo.

    There is no such thing as too much ammo!!!
    A person is justified in the use of deadly force, if such person reasonably believes deadly force is necessary to prevent imminent death or great bodily harm to such person or a third person.
