I think people go way overboard on these things. Try to imagine a scenario in which you personally need and use several thousand rounds. In that kind of battle, would you really survive long enough to fire several thousand rounds? And when youre dead, now the bad guys have all thats left of your ammo.
If you plan on practicing, you can go through a whole load of ammo in a year.
I know that I went through at least 3-4 thousand rounds last year, counting rifle and handgun.

As do my wife and I. I usually shoot 100 rounds a week myself. Hence the stockpile never gets all that big.
I’ll buy 1k rounds when I can find a good deal, but then we start chewing that away pretty quick.
