The only way to be safe is to have ALL of it!!
I'll just have to settle for ball bearings for my slingshot, as my centerfires were all disposed of because I have joined the unicorn & rainbows crowd.

Peace brothers!!!

a while back when that orange haired freakazoid went on the rampage --some of the cops made a big deal about the 6K rounds he had.

i was like thinking--the cops probably counted air soft pellets and BB gun BBs!

to me 6k don't sound like that much.


if you have been buying ammo for very long a tin here a short pallet there starts to add up.

i sort of expect the big "O" nut if he gets back in to regulate ammo, internet orders will be target #1.

My wife and I went through 280 rounds last Sunday at a range in just two little semi pistols in less than an hour. It kind of freaks me out how much we could run through the rifles in hi cap mags if a civil problem erupted? What we have around here could only last somewhat less than I expected?
