    I used to buy 10-20 cases when they are on sale...so last year my home inventory ranged from 20-50 cases at any given.

    Have not seen any sales (or free shipping for ammo) for almost 6 months since the ammo hoarding started so I have about 10 cases now.

    No more than 10....which is how many I buy at a time. Would love to have 50 on hand...that would last me for a looooong time.

    I'm so poor I only have 5 shells in a drawer in case I have to fight off a buglar. Seriously, I purchase my shells at my local gun club as there prices are only 11 cents more per box than Walmart after paying the tax. The owner always has a huge supply on hand.

    I know this seems a bit extreme, but given the anti-gun sentiment of this administration I would be very cautious in posting what ammo, guns, etc. that you may own and/or have in your possession.

    I would bet that this site is being monitored by someone in the government.

    Any posting can easily be traced to its source.

    Just a word of caution.

    AND....NO, I AM NOT a "doomsday conspiracy" theorist.

    I would be more worried about criminals than the government. Which of these do you think has taken more guns that didn't belong to them? Mark

    Criminal/Politicians pretty much one of the same ... Both are out to take our guns yet it's not legal to shoot a Politician as it is a criminal that threatens your life ... WPT ... (YAC) ...

    Lately? Not many. I can only get Fiocchi locally with any consistency right now and I hate that stuff.

    Not long ago? 20-30 flats.

    usually just one at a time..since only a fun shooter I usually keep just one or two of the 3 guages I use most..lately that means more 20's than anything as they seem to be both the cheapest and easiest to find

    I have something akin to 'Hoarders Jones' if the stash drops to 10 flats or so. A more comfortable inventory is something around 50 flats which is almost enough for a season.

    Sometimes I have felt a bit silly for dropping $2K or so on more ammo but theses days I'm glad I did build up and maintain my pile of target ammo.
