If you don't have a constantly rotating bulk supply (at least a thousand per caliber firearm you own) chances are you aren't shooting enough. One day
courses will blow through 500+ rounds. An afternoon punching holes in paper will easilly drain as much. One IDPA match will go 250 or more. That could
be 1250 rounds in a weekend between practice and one event.
Take out those safe queens and get them dirty. Shoot in the heat, the rain, the snow, enter every local event you can find even if you suck, heck
especially if you suck, and shoot shoot shoot.
If you take the hobby/skill/right/duty seriously "stocking up" won't be an issue.
Think of it like living paycheck to paycheck. If you're worried that next utility bill is going to kill you you aren't living within your means. If
you're worried about stocking up on anything at all you aren't stocking enough. Whatever it is.
I buy ammo like stock. For each caliber and grade I have a bottom and a high margin. When you see a price near that bottom you buy. Doesnt matter if
its Tula or Wolf or Lake City or even if you need it or not. It's not like it goes bad. Occasionally I've been able to sell some at profit when
supply or demand make it worthwhile locally.
So if you're speculating on future scarcity and you're genuinely concerned about buy more when you can so next time events have you speculating you
won't be worried.
And shoot more. Everyone.
