for 30 years I bought enough ammo to shoot on the weekends storing just a little. you did not have to be a selfish glutton and stockpile giant amounts. I would get a pound of BP at a time. waited until it was 3/4 gone and got another but that was before the boomers retired en masse with all the time money and the internet where a clic gets you a gun store type delivery to your door. an example is the guy hear who got 50lb keg of BP and wont even live long enough to use it. there are millions like himCorrect on every point! I've been in the firearms related industry for over 35 years and have seen this same scenario time and time again. I've known many over the years who would barely keep enough ammo to keep their carry piece loaded. These same folks make a trip to the grocery about every other day and rarely fill up their tank.
