On a related note, here are some interesting statistics:
From the following article, it appears there are almost 22 million licensed hunters in the US. According to the linked study, deer were the most commonly hunted animal, with 83% of hunters purchasing deer tags/licenses.
This means that at least 18 million Americans own or have access to, have ammo for, and can shoot, relatively high powered rifles, the vast majority of which are center fire models with scopes. Or to put it another way, America can field almost 18 million "snipers" at a moment's notice. And if all of them keep just 2 twenty round boxes of ammo on average, that's almost 750 million rounds of high power center fire ammo in American hunters' hands at any given time. And that doesn't even begin to account for the number of semi-auto rifles like ARs, AKs, etc, shotguns, and handguns in the hands of both hunters and non hunters.

A new study funded by NSSF and carried out by Southwick Associates has found that the pool of American hunters is much larger than previously thought.
This report estimates that 21.8 million Americans hunted at least once over the past five years. Previous estimates have shown over 14 million youth and adults hunt each year, but not all hunters take to the field every year.
Conducted in partnership with 17 state wildlife agencies, the study assessed license sales patterns and found that 78 percent of the U.S. hunters who bought a license in a given year also purchased one again the following year. By examining purchasing patterns over multiple years, it was determined that for every two hunters in the field this year, one is taking the year off.
This discovery can lead to major conservation and economic benefits. If many casual hunters (hunters that do not purchase a hunting license on an annual basis) can be converted into annual license buyers, a major benefit would be realized.

Those numbers don’t include people like me who don’t have a license but prefer to just punch holes in targets.

Very true, thankfully. Many (most?) long arms are unregistered too.
