Excellent as a gift for any occasion...birthday,house-warming,wedding,Christmas,etc. Stockpile as much as your finances allow...ammo is definitely a valuable "trading stock". Everyone has their own "comfort zone". I suggest---.308 5-6000rds,30.06 3-4ooords,7.62x39 10-12,000rds,.22LR 15-20,000rds,.223 1,000(battlefield pick-up the rest),& of course handgun ammo(couple thousand ) in each of your favorite calibers and in the most common such as .45,9mm,.38,.357. Also a supply of 8mm(3,000rds) for mausers --use of a bolt-action definitely conserves your ammo.
