How Much Of An Ammo Pack Rat Are You?

Not sure how honest of an answer I am going to get from this group, but I would dare to gamble there will be more truth in your answer then anything that came out of the wicked witches mouth. If you have no clue who I am talking about, maybe you should just sit this one out.

When they invaded Grenada I loaned them some 5.56.
Haven't gotten it back yet but was happy to help.

I buy bulk when prices are attractive, regardless of how much I already have on hand.

I will not say how many rounds I have, but if I kept shooting but stopped buying, my stockpile would still last for many, many years.

I'm somewhere between the first two selections but don't care to admit which one I lean towards.

When Perfecta comes into our local Walmart—its war! Whoever gets there first usually buys a significant amount, I always take 10-15 boxes to top off our reserve...

I have acquired less than 500 rounds of store bought ammunition over the last 5 years.

I have acquired some sizable quantities of brass, bullets, primers and powders. I tend to reload more than I shoot.

Andy isn't the one you should be worried about!

If you ever see a mushroom shaped cloud over Arizona and the richter scale says the tremblor was a 7.0 or more, you'll know my ammo has exploded.

Just a small sampling of what I have accrued over the years.... of course it's all legal!
Neighbors are always curious!
That's why I keep some of it in the basement!

Year plus. Yahoos in Sacramento trying to cut us off from ammo and it doesn't look good for this election.

No ammo here, I lost all of my firearms in a horrific boating accident. No need ammo.
