I dont mean in mags or guns or closets or safes.
I mean just laying around.
Everywhere I look around my place I am always finding loose rounds. A 5.56 here, a .38 spcl, there, a 9mm hollowpoint on the bookcase.
Crap, I have a .30 carbine round on the bookshelf and I dont even OWN a .30 carbine!(ya ya, its on "the list").
Do you guys have loose rounds lying around your place?

Not lying around my house but all over inside my truck. I have a little of everything rolling around under the seats. The center console is just about full of ammo all mixed. Mostly 5.56 but there is some .45, 9mm, .458 SOCOM and 7.62x39 as well. I think its time to clean it out!

Of course! Well, they're not so noticible until I clean the place up...then I find 'em all over. Dunno how they got there, or why I even have some of them. They tend to collect near my reloading bench though. Which is strange, since I only reload .223 and there's 9mm and .45 all over the bench.
Link Posted: 12/15/2003 5:10:08 PM EDT
Yep. I just stepped on a .40s&w hollow point this morning when I got out of bed. I know I have a couple of 5.56 and .45s rolling around on my desk too.
Link Posted: 12/15/2003 5:14:17 PM EDT
Yep, at home and at work. ByteTheBullet (-:

I dont know where most of it comes from. Some comes from clearing a weapon but that cant explain it all. None of mine is on the floor, just on tables, shelves, in drawers, etc...

I have a display of one of each of everything we shoot on top the safe in the living room. A couple of weeks ago I did a fairly detailed cleanup around the house. I found ammo under the couch, under the cushions, under the dining room table and in the bedroom both beside the bed and on the dresser. There were a few stray rounds in the bottom of the clothes hamper. I’m always finding rounds rolling around on the floor of my van and my GF’s truck. Just looking from where I am now I have a box of .30-06 milsurp and a stray round of 7.62x54R on the coffee table. I’m planning on putting my house on the market in the next few months. Gotta to be careful of shit like that. I can just imagine what the response would be if a typical SoCal homebuyer found a stray “bullet” lying on the carpet. [shock][}:D]
Link Posted: 12/15/2003 5:23:46 PM EDT
I do too. Bad habit with kids around so I'm pretty good at picking up now. Plus with 3 kids buying a box of high end 45 (or worse, 458) is a luxury. Every round is precious!

goddamit, police up that 458 and send it to me!

From where I'm sitting, I can see: .38, .45, 9mm, 5.56, 5.45 and .30 carbine. On the coffee table, the bookshelf and the computer desk. Oh, and there is a .44 magnum on the kitchen table. Autographed by CH.
Link Posted: 12/15/2003 5:28:54 PM EDT
Right now I have 300 Savage, 44 magnum, 22 long rifle, and 9mm laying on the coffee table. I just cleaned out my coat pockets. [:)]

Within arms reach of me right now I can see at least one of each of the following caliber rounds: .50BMG, .38spl, 9mm, .40 cal, .45acp, .308, .223, .30 carbine and 7.62x39.
Link Posted: 12/15/2003 5:37:19 PM EDT
Not live rounds, but used components lying about the computer room. An ashtray full of various hollowpoints used for my uberscientific ballistic tests. Lots of spent rifle brass on the table over there. This lonely live 9mm round I found at the range stands between the keyboard and the monitor...

I keep the expensive JHP ++++p tactical cop only death ray carry pistol bullets in the safe. I NEVER bring them out. Not even to shoot. They are too dangerous be out of a safe. You sir, scare me.

Yup, It's everywhere.

no live rounds, but I have a .45acp and a .45lc bullet on my shelf. I recovered both while shooting a few months ago

Yep,me too.

I tend to take my video camera to the range for some video recording and recently found some brass (.223 and .45) that I collect for reloading. I was cleaning out my camera bag from our Thanksgiving trip up North and found some of this brass in the camera case. Strange part is the bag was xrayed coming and going and no one asked about it.
Link Posted: 12/15/2003 5:55:22 PM EDT
and I have gun mags and books in every room in the house. I have replaced two shelves of leadership books in my office with gun stuff, mostly to feed by 1911 fetish. I think I have a problem, I was reading my 6 year old a passage from the Lee Loading Manual on reduced loads...and he liked it.
Link Posted: 12/15/2003 5:55:32 PM EDT
Hell, I have [b]guns[/b] lying around.
Link Posted: 12/15/2003 5:55:46 PM EDT
Without even turning my head, I can see a few loose rounds of 9x19 Golden Saber, 9x18 HP, five rounds of 8mm Mauser in a clip, of 1942 vintage, and a "silver bullet" in .44 Mag signed by Chuck Heston.
Link Posted: 12/15/2003 5:58:10 PM EDT
... It's just my nature to have rounds lying around. It wouldn't be home without.
Link Posted: 12/15/2003 5:58:20 PM EDT
Ammo and pennies... I don't know how the fuck they get where they do, but I find them everywhere... Ammo and pennies... In my dresser drawer, in my glovebox, in my console,(three vehicles)on the basement and garage floor I find empties(from occasional indoor testing), in my file cabinets, in my camera bag, in the bed of my pickup, in my gunsafe, etc... I guess it's better than finding cockroaches...[:D]

Ammo and pennies. Sounds like a song title... "I got nuthin, dont need nuthin, but I got ammo and pennies...."
Link Posted: 12/15/2003 6:02:21 PM EDT
Not here. Ammo goes to 3 places, sequentally: 1) It's in it's original packaging; box, plastic, whatever; 2) It gets loaded in a magazine (which may or may not be stored for a while; 3) It gets expended at the range. There is no "loose" ammo around here. All my ammo is policed. Now...as to HOW MUCH I have...no freaking clue. It all comes and goes [:D]
Link Posted: 12/15/2003 6:06:45 PM EDT
Oh yeah, it's everywhere. I have .22LR (Mini-Mag and Colibri), 5.56, 7.62x39, 12 gauge....and then also my rounds that I have just sitting around as a display.
Link Posted: 12/15/2003 6:11:19 PM EDT
Well feel lucky if its just a few here and there. Not only is there rounds in ever nook of the house its the empty brass I get in trouble for. I am a brass whore and it is everywhere. Its in the office, the bedroom, the kitchen, the bathroom(dont ask). My oldest daughter even has a few in here room(first rounds fired from; the AR .223, 22lr, 9mm, 380, 22-250, 243 and soon her new custom 7mm08 mauser). I even have a bag of 500 new primed 9x23, I DONT HAVE A 9x23!!!!! The to make it worse(better for me) I ahve at least 2000 .308 cases polished, trimmed, etc ready to load cases in zip locks, paint cans and a few coffe cans. Wow, I just looked around, I dont get rid of anything. CH

Yes, just found some tonight and they went into the change jar with the rest of them. I just have to be careful when I take my change into the automatic counter machine thing at the bank...It may not take kindly to the live rounds...
Link Posted: 12/15/2003 6:35:25 PM EDT
found a 5.56mm under my monitor.

I have the door pockets on my truck loaded down with loose rounds of all calibers. I have a 50 cal ammo can with the loose rounds from the house that I shoot off first the next time I go to the range....everything there from 22 LR to 50 cal..., so I try to keep it somewhat organized to a degree. I always get snide comments from one or two fellow shooters (if I have someone at my range with me) when they see me pawing through the 50 cal can looking for a particular caliber
Link Posted: 12/16/2003 3:17:24 AM EDT
Yes, I do.

Not too many, just a few loose rounds on my desk at home and in my toolbox at work.
