I like my .45 Colt..
Which ammo is most available? The ammo your carrying.
The old Cowboys on the trail did not have money, or a Wally World, too quick grab ammo.
They kept a bag of dry powder, lead, primers, saved their brass and re-loaded.
Simple re-loading tools are available. Plus simple measuring options for your powder.
God forbid things get too bad.
Hell just find someone who does not need their weapon anymore and use theirs.
