That is the real problem; I have enough ammo for any real need, but I'm not going to burn it up at the range anymore.
And most ranges won’t let you pick up your brass either.
One of the reasons I chose a Beretta 92 9mm was that I thought if ammo ever became in short supply, 9mm would be one of the last calibers to become short in supply and somewhat affordable.
15 years later, this has come to fruition and while the cost of 9mm ammunition has at least doubled, it can still be found. Most of the high prices are dealers and sellers gouging gun owners. Shame on them.
I use the cheap stuff at the range (Wolf, S&B) and have about 250-300 rounds of it on hand.
I also have 100 Rounds of Hyra-Shok ammunition and another 100 Rounds of Cor-Bon ammunition which is saved for when the Defecation hits the Oscillation and was purchased several months before Obama was re-elected at normal pricing.
At this point, I’m going to hold off on buying more as the prices are way too high.
I have a variety of rounds from birdshot to buckshot for my Mossy 500, probably about 75 total.
If anything, I will stock up on some 12 Gauge when the next Gun Show rolls into town.
A good every day carry knife should be on everyone’s list as well.
I have a good quality but inexpensive and Kalifornia legal Pazoda CRKT folding knife with the combination straight/ serrated edge. It has a pocket clip and I always carry it when I go out since I can’t carry a firearm in Kalifornia.
After breaking it in and with the help of some WD-40, I can actually open it with a flick of the wrist and without using the thumb-hole assist.
I’ve never been a knife guy, but I’ve become fond of this little knife and found out the hard way that it has the potential to do some serious damage.
