I never understood why people buy ammo when an emergency shows up ... don’t they have stock
Hey, it works well on the Mrs.
“Honey, there is a storm coming. I need to go down to the gun shop and get some more ammo.”
“Fine, but don’t you go seeing any orphan gun in the rack and bring it home claiming we can give it a good home. We got enough stray calibers to stock up on as it is now.””
dont they have stock=Yes your stock
It's not like you can have too much.
Maybe they just fired off a chunk of their "stockpile" practicing and were waiting for a good sale, or next months gun show, for a good deal.
Maybe they'd even ordered some but it had not yet arrived.
But of course many would have taken an inventory and decided... well a little more wouldn't hurt.
