How many rounds of center fire
handgun ammunition do you have on hand? I have (310) rounds, (82) .44 mag. and (228) .40 cal. Is that enough for home defence? I noticed .22 cal. started showing up a couple weeks ago. Finally this week it appears the center fire handgun ammunition supply has caught up with demand at least in these parts. :dilemma:

14. I suppose I would be described as a "hoarder"
I've also got brand new, unopened spindles of CDs, extra ink cartridges for the printer, packages of batteries, at least two cans of each kind of soup I like.

Someday, when I get rich, I will even have a spare car.

2. How many do you need?
My philosophy is one target, one shot.

7. 310 rounds?
I've got that many in calibers that I don't even own any weapons that will chamber it.

run out. I probably have another thousand if I count my .22s, shotgun and rifle shells. That may get me by until Monday.

11. What the hell are you planning to defend against?
If you need 310 rounds to defend against a home invasion or other crim, you're doing it wrong.

Or you're Tony Montana.

12. Enough for defensive use, yes, but it won't last long if you practice regularly.
So I wouldn't fret about it, but if I saw some more I'd snag it.

13. I don't know - close to a thousand, I guess, but some of it is in calibers
Edited on Fri Sep-18-09 04:58 PM by old mark
I don't even have guns for anymore - like .44 mag and special.
