I never let the pile dip below 70 thousand rounds, as there are no ammo makers up here anymore.

That is like asking a rancher how many cattle he owns. It's considered poor taste.

wade,

am glad that you (and others), enjoyed that pic--

i'm usually a fairly serious fellow, but on some occasions i will digress to humor--which is always good!

Everyone seems to be preparing for the collapse of society and fighting off hordes of marauders. In truth, the real key will be keeping a low profile and keeping something in the pot.

Taylor made for the .22LR.

I just want to know how you control yourselves from wanting to go out and shoot all that ammo instead of it sitting on selves?

Ammo doesn't last long in my house. If its here I want to go shoot it. I keep a brick at all times just for the potential SHTF.

..I feel good that I am not the only "hoarder".... Last year while digging around I came across 15K rounds of Winchester Super-X that was stashed away during the Klinton scare....

...simple rule...when you shoot up a box of ammo go to the store and buy two...you will always be ahead....way ahead.

Thanks to this thread, I just discovered I am a hoarder. 16,000+.

That's crazy.

quite simply enough that if they stop making it, I can still spend a day or few plinking at dump and not worry about making a dent in the supply. Have made it a habit that everytime I am at a store that had a good deal for the times to pick up a few bricks. Been doing that for a long time and have bricks with $5.99 price tags on them.

last year i used my bass pro credit card as my company card, to get the "bonus points" they offer, then i turned those into free stuff. (usuually ammo).

right after christmas i went down & got 16 bricks of Win subsonic HP for about what i'd normally pay for 2 bricks. already had a pretty good stash of that stuff, but now have a real good stash. hard to turn down free ammo.

my last purchase of 17Mach2 eleys, in case we are ever overrun by zombie rats & squirrels. (couple boxes if 22mags laying there too).

had a fair sized pile of Hornady & CCI Mach2 sittin on the shelf already, so left a few bricks out of the eley out, vacsealed the others. stacks a helluva lot better when sealed up like that, also handier to grab a brick when we go to the range.

are you savin that last round for a special occasion? grin
