Got me to thinking with the occasional media report such as "supsect's home was searched and a weapon stockpile of 3 rifles, 4 handguns, and several hundred rounds of ammo was discovered", how many of us would fit the media's description? I live in a rural area and its not uncommon for guys to have 20 or more guns in their collection. I have a modest number of guns (would love to have more) and I'm sure my collection would be labeled a "stockpile" by the press.

So how about it, how many stockpilers are out there???

If I were to own firearms and ammunition, I suppose I would.

I don't think the number really matters. A Ruger 10/22 and a brick of ammo will be described as a "stockpile" (or better yet, an "arsenal") if the local media wishes to portray you in a negative light.

Yep, that is what I have seen.

Imbroglio.

I guess I qualify.

I have enough to equip my own squad, maybe 2 if I need. FAL's, AR's, HK's, a real nice precision bolt gun, a Benelli M1S90 along with some other combat shotguns. I reload so I always have a 1000 or so rounds around. Never enough because I shoot so much.

I used to teach boobytraps and improvised munitions in the Army, so I could be branded as a potential domestic terrorist by some definitions... Just call ahead so I know you're coming...

Does enough to outfit an infantry platoon qualify. If yes I fit the bill.
Link Posted: 6/11/2002 2:55:44 PM EDT
I suppose my collection would more than meet the media's definition then. 12 rifles, 2 shotguns, 6 pistols, and 14K of ammo.

Stockpile? I don't stockpile. I shoot every weapon I own. Well, all except the ChiCom SKS I brought back from RVN.

I wonder how many stockpiles make an arsenal....

The person in question will be a "white supremacist", "disgruntled veteran", or survivalist. His home will be described as a "compound". And his defense firearms will be a "cache" of "automatic weapons".
Link Posted: 6/11/2002 5:56:36 PM EDT
i would.....but not that many pistols.

Yeah! The kind used by terrorists around the world.

I don't call what I have a stockpile, but I guess the media would. But my buddy has over 700 guns and more than 1,000,000 rnds of ammunition and he told me if SHTF I know where to go so no need for me to stockpile.

Let's see...

4 quarts = 1 gallon
16 ounces = 1 pound
2 arsenals = 1 Waco
1 stockpile = 1 Ruby Ridge

So...1 stockpile = (Waco * Ruby Ridge) /2 + .223 * .308 squared.

Guns no, ammo yes.

GUILTY! Both in guns and ammo! I know I could shoot one gun a day for over a year and not shoot the same gun twice!

186 box cutters

How about:
2 HD Agricultural weed/grass mowers
1 HD Agricultural brush grinder
1 3 bottom plow
and a bunch of other stuff... not to mention back hoes and other 'industrial equipment' at my disposal...
