For those of you who are stocking up for the big one and have stocked up on ammunition,
I have a very simple question,
How much is enough?
When do you know you have enough and what do you plan in doing with all of that ammunition?
I ask because I have several firearms which I have ammunition for but I don't know what a reasonable amount is to stock up on.
Is a hundred rounds enough?
Where do you stop?
Do you ever stop?
When do you have enough to get you into serious trouble with the Feds?
I'd like to have a good supply of ammunition but I don't want to get into trouble and be out of the game before the game even begins.
I recently had the police in my home due to a neighbor calling them on me and my wife for a pretty heated arguement
we were having. they took me outside to talk to me and a few stayed behind to talk to my wife.
They confiscated my Glock 9mm which is always sitting out in the open within arms reach.
They asked my wife if I had any more weapons and boy ohhh boy that's where the fun began.
My wife, wanting to be honest with the police and not understanding that they are scumbag criminals who are Government paid and trained criminal
gangsters, told them about my AK-47 and when they went downstairs to investigate they ran across my tactical vest as well as 1000 rounds of 7.62x39.
and a couple hundred rounds of 9mm ammo.
He asked her why I had "all of this ammo"?
She said he likes to target shoot.
He asked why I had the Tac Vest.
He wanted to know what I intended to do with all of this stuff.
I just got my 9mm back and needless to say, It was enough to freak me out and make me a little more careful.
These people are out to put an end to people who have enough firepower to give them a run for their money whether or not we intended any harm. I want
enough forepower to keep my home safe in the event of massive riots/civil unrest/looting/raping/pilaging/zombie apocolypse.
Long story short, I want to be careful not to get into trouble but also want to know how much is enough and how much is too much.
