Welcome to the site where the owners and members have had it with playing "nice" and being "inclusive" and "tolerant" of points of view that are destroying the fabric of what made this country great. The members here are sick and tired of politicians of all parties lying, deceiving, stealing, and pretending they are doing it all for the good of the country while selling out to special interests who have the set goal of destroying this country. We have had enough of career politicians who use their office only for personal gain, and who refuse to listen to the people who put them in office. The membership is no longer part of the silent majority who play nice and get along while getting screwed by anyone with a loud voice and an agenda. We will no longer allow anyone to piss down our back and tell us it's raining. And we like guns too.

All of it. Anything less and you don't have enough.

Look at a possible scenario where you would need a LOT of ammo. Zombies

Assuming you aren’t one of the zombies yourself you look out the front window and realize it’s time for some head shots. The report of the first shot will alert nearby zombies to your presence, and each shot after that attracts more. You need to zap zombies until all of them within hearing range are killed and re-killed. So you’re going to need enough ammo to kill every damn zombie within a 3 mile radius of your house.

For me, that means I need roughly 30,000 rounds. Of course a barrel is only good for about 6000-8000 rounds before accuracy or reliability starts to be compromised, so you need a few replacements available too.

It’s important to be prepared and think about these things before the need should arise.

Edit: Ironically that was post 556

It's like airplane fuel, you need enough to get you there and then some more just in case.

THIS! And then enough to sustain training for at least a year!

I have somewhere around 2 dozen .50 cal ammo cans filled with different calibers of firearms I own (not including 12 Ga. ammo). I shoot roughly 1000-2000 rounds per year training/practicing (9mm, .45 ACP, 5.56mm, 6.5 Creedmoor & some .22LR). Not enough training/practice I know, but I shoot & buy when I can. I'm constantly buying & rotating ammo accordingly.
