I try to keep 6 thirty round mags in each room of my house, six in each vehicle, and 20 in the garage. Another dozen in wrapped oil skin bags every 100 meters along the driveway.
Then two boxes of cliped 8 round mags for my Garands, and a dozen loaded for two M-1 Carbines.
On the roof I have 100 match loads for my Tactical Savage in 6.5X55.
My dog has a special collar that holds 2 30 rounders ready to go.
Oh shit, actually I have one on my walker and 6 in my tactical bag that I can drag behind me.
Other than the dog (pretty good idea there), this is another
outstanding example for the legal, civilian possession of M18A1 Claymore Mines
--- less logistics required!
But to answer your original question; My Ready Ammo is all kept on strippers, packed in cardboards & in bandoleers. One spoon (stripper clip guide for the non-military types out there) per bandoleer, and two additional loose spoons sitting on top of the bandos packed inside the can. I have three cans of Ball and one can of Tracer packed this way and each can is marked with a yellow vinyl circular "dot" (red dot for tracer).
Gone are the days that I felt the need to keep loaded AR magazines in my LBE (old school here) just in case Ivan Pooshky came knocking. Now it's a loaded 45 Combat Commander in the safe, loaded Beretta 92 in the truck, and a loaded Sig 228 in my paddle holster for the common scumbag threat. If the threat level jumped I'd probably load up my Benelli and Ithica shotguns and just hunker down in to a "hull defilade" Bug In position. Of course if the threat level went thru the roof and I needed to scoot I'd load up a Basic Combat Load of 30s, plus a Beta C, and BUG OUT!
Now, about those Claymores.....
