    Stocking (hoarding) up on ammo. How much is enough?

    Ive been wanting a 45 for a long time but I got to thinking. I could, instead, easily spend $450 to stock up on ammo for the guns I have now. Right now I have about 100 rounds for each caliber that I own (three different calibers so about 300 rounds). More and more I see online 5.56 ammo showing out of stock and I see the prices going nowhere but up in the future. I am also afraid of extra taxes being placed on ammo for various reasons. How much ammo is enough? I also don't want the government to think im planning the next terrori$t attack.



    PS deliberately mispelled Terrori$t so the NSA bots don't see it.

    You can never have enough ammo...

    To be honest, 100 rounds is not very much ammo. Go all out on 556 and .45ACP now while you still can with the prices going up yet again.

    The Italians have a saying. "Keep your friends close and your enemies closer." And although they've never won a war or mass-produced a decent car, in this area they are correct.

    Same here Fatcat. I buy when there is a deal and horde horde horde. I have an entire room of my house dedicated to only guns and ammo. Used to be my FFL office.

    I agree with Fatcat...you can never have enough ammo. I've actually got to get stocked up on .45 expendable (230 gr. hardball) ammo.

    You can never have enough... I have a few thousand rounds at home and to some that may seem like too much, but for me it's not nearly enough!
