    How do the feds know who bought how much? In most states you simply pay for the ammunition. Someone from the store loads your pallets of ammunition in your pickup using a fork lift. You head home noticing how heavy and unresponsive the truck is.

    pretty sure thats a "no". The government usually can't keep track of their own tail end... Let alone who has how much ammo..

    The RFID chip in the ammo box talks the the RFID chip in your DL, and they send a joint message to the Bureau of Ammunition Shopping Tracking And Records and Data Storage. (Figure the acronym for that one!)

    The only common sense gun legislation was written about 224 years ago.

    I carry always not because I go places trouble is likely, but because trouble has a habit of not staying in its assigned zone.

    Probably read it on the internet. You know everything you read on the internet is gospel, like this headline I came across....


    Feds Buying Up All Surplus Ammo, Ordering Stores To Cease Sales?

    That one was news to me and the post was from back in March.

    OP, tell your friend he can take his tin foil hat off. How are they going to know how much ammo you are buying? I go buy ammo at Dick's or WallyWorld or Gander, etc., they don't know my name and address. Now if you ordered a semi-truck load of 5.56 or 7.62 and had it delivered to your house, someone might take notice.

    Actually, it probably came from one of those news articles about someone's "arsenal" of three guns and "cache" of two thousand rounds of ammunition...

    I don't know anyone who ones one gun that doesn't own at least three or four, and "two thousand rounds" of ammunition is generally referred to as "almost out", but according to the media...

    I generally budget between $150 and $300 each month for ammo purchases and we all know that it doesn't take too much range time to rip through that amount of rounds.
    I shoot a variety of calibers, but I really love to shoot rimfire for the sheer number of bangs-per-buck and my M&P 15-22 makes a lot of bangs on range day :) When I buy 22's, it's usually 5,000 or 10,000 rounds at a time and nobody even blinks at that. Most other calibers are at least 500 per order.
