Yeah, but where is your ammo


Gettin a Digi Camera for Christmas. Got the puter whiz kid home from school next week so hopefully I'll post some pics of my measly stash and a few gunz. Maybe a few M1As, ARs, Garands and 1911s, [GI and Civi]



Where's the pics


Yeah, should have had plenty of time for those batteries and get something posted by now.


Got camera, [they were out of stock tuesday] took pics, downloaded program into computer. Now all I have to do is figure out how to post them to this site. Also took some pics of Garands, M1As, ARs, GI 1911A1s, and some Colts. Did not take pics of all my ammo but did take pics of a lot of it. [it'll be enough]


You'll need to find a picture hosting site like photobucket to first upload the pics.  Once there you can copy the links for the pics and use the image button to insert the tags.

Question.

When you count your ammo to check to see if you have an ammo whore problem or not, do you include your .22LR?

I don't know that its fair and should be included with the rest.  Thoughts?

Well... my slutty self just added another crate of 5.45 Russian and 1600 rounds of Bulgarian 7.62 Tokerav to the stash

thanks,

You will generally get laughed at around here if you include 22lr ammo in your stash numbers.    Most of the time it is centerfire only.   I would imagine that the number of us with 20k+ of 22lr is much larger than the number of people with 20k+ of 5.56.

There is a very good reason to sometimes buy a metric ton of .22. Every once in a while you will find a certain lot and make of .22 that will shoot incredibly well. If you are going to keep the gun, you're best bet is to got to the store you bought it from and buy as much of the same exact lot number as they have. The next lot might shoot for crap in the same gun, .22 is weird that way.

+1 500's the limit on 22lr for me, wouldn't waste the storage space where I can stash more useful rounds.

22 LR can be a useful round, it's great for hunting and being quite with a firearm (taking out dogs or people without bringing too much attention your way).  It has a limited amount of use for defensive / offensive purposes, but it's great for trade in a SHTF or TEOTWAWKI situation (trade a cheap 22 LR and 1000 rounds to a neighbor for food / water / gas / something bigger / etc).  Additionally, I do not like to count on being able to purchase something I may need in a time of emergency.  Stores will more than likely be packed with people turning places that sell 22 LR into potential problem areas.  

Plus in a zombie situation I can carry 30,000 rounds on my back for my 22 LR rifle and keep a 22 LR pistol for zombie backup (you know when you're overrun by the hoard and they grab your rifle)

You are the man!   Assuming 40gn bullets that is 171lbs in lead alone.    

Sorry could not pass that one up fellow ham.  

22 ammo adds up faster than you would think.   I can put 13 boxes of the Walmart specials(550 Rd. Value pack) in a SAW can.   I would not want to hump one of those far!

Well I'm partial to the 38 grain Federal HPs actually, so that's were the weight savings is over 30,000 rounds

In all seriousness, one could pack 9000 rounds, a 22 LR rifle and a 22 LR pistol with a pack, food and water and make it under the 75 lbs weight limit for the US combat forces max gear weight.

Ordinary 50BMG can, no the lid won't close.

Once I free'd up some other 50BMG cans I broke the mag pile down into groups of 12 and put them into the cans laying down with 18 boxes of ammo.

I'm not going to say anything about the cost of 22LR.  $100 to me today is just like $100 two years ago.  But I'll not say a thing about ammo costs.

But I did buy 10K of 22LR on sale just in case, and no I don't count it as part of the stash/horde/stockpile.

I think this works better.   I mean, if a person only shoots his one Ar15 say five times a year and fires a total of 1000 rounds, but has 10k of XM-193 on hand, that guy is an ammo whore.  

If the same person now shoots his M16 10 times a year and burns 5k of XM-193 and has 10k on hand he is not an ammo whore.  

The definition also takes into account the fact that if we could not get ammo any more for whatever reason we would all cut back to save what we have.  


So what do you guys think?   Maybe we can come together here and come up with the ARFCOM 1st theorem of ammo whoring.
 



You're an ammo whore if your kids sleep in dresser drawers out in the halls because their rooms are filled with ammo, a de-humidifier, and are deadbolted shut....

Not really sure but I want more already.


Actually the main use will be for cheap plinkin in my 9mm revolver.  After that it may find it's way into a glock for some cheap manual operation plinkin.  Then I also thought I could probably shoot it at my 22lr bullet trap without hurting the trap.

ETA: that a true ammo whore doesn't need a reason to buy ammo or have any use for a certain type what-so-ever.

It hasn't been a problem for me so far.


The last addition to my stash was a case of WCC844 and that was a couple of months ago. I am contemplating pulling the trigger on an ammo deal that I just discovered. If I decide to drop the hammer, I will reveal the location once my order has shipped. If I decide not to, then I will reveal it.

It isn't a caliber that is in great demand on this board, so it isn't like I am being an ass about it.
