    How many of you are NOT participating in the ammo hoarding exercise going on now?

    I have built up a supply from previous hoarding exercises and will sit this one out.

        I am not. I am a poor college student. Just a matter of time before things settle back out.

          I haven't been out to look for any since this mess started, mainly because I currently have enough for my purposes, but I'm glad I'm not in any recreational shooting leagues.

            I have enough for anything less than a disaster.

              Since I reload everything that I shoot I don't buy ammo, I stocked up quite abit on reloading supplies when Obummer got elected the first time and I have kept stocked up pretty well. I let myself get somewhat low on primers and bought the last 800 that were to be had in my small town 3 weeks ago. I'm not dangerously low just like to have more than I do on stock.

                I probably have enough ammo to take out a couple of hundred of whomever or whatever is causing the shooting to start, but I've accumulated it over the years, not from this current panic.

                  I usually make a big purchase at the beginning of the year for my shooting needs over the year. .270, .30-06, .40 S&W were easy to find online at Cabelas. The .270 and .30-06 being Rem Cor-Lokts and the .40 being Federal hydrashock. Funny thing is, I couldn't find .30-30, go figure.

                    I too load all of my rifle cartridges and have enough to last me my lifetime. I have also have enough powder,primers,bullets,and brass for a second lifetime. Gradually, I hope my son gets into reloading.

                      I have enough to last for the foreseeable future but the current silliness is preventing the clearance sales that I typically used to stock up and maintain the inventory. I was going to invest in reloading equipment this year but there has been a run there as well.
                      I was in a Gander Mtn. yesterday and you should have seen the feeding frenzy on the crappy .223 ammo they were selling for top dollar.

                        I don't have enough in my bullet/shell stash but who can ever have "enough" bullets?! I'm good to go for a while just as long as I don't unwisely use my rounds. After all of this hoarding stops I'll definitely be stocking up on reloading brass and bullets.

                          I reload all my ammo, and have enough components to last a while, but like chuckles said, nothing goes on sale because people are buying as fast as the ammo hits the shelves. Hopefully it won't last too long.

                            I buy and have bought a box or four of ammo every time I go to town since I was 18, Being 25 now I am starting to build up quite a stock pile. I also have my reloading stuff so I feel like I am ready for anything. But I will continue to buy ammo as long as it is there to purchase.

                              I'm in good shape for my needs. 22 LR would be one type I would buy if I went out to get ammo. But I have enough to last me quite awhile.
