I've picked up a bunch of different ammo for little to no money, auctions in these parts always have guns & ammo, haven't noticed any shortage in stores I have been in recently & this is a largely republican area. Guess maybe the people here are more self reliant by nature.
I also live in PA, and there are plenty of places to pick up ammo. However, most of the caliber ammo I want, mainly 9mm and .45 ACP since those are my assault rifles, are expensive compared to what I can pick up online.
The need??? I guess I just like to have it and not need it, then need it and not have it. Ammo never goes bad. I have shot rounds that are 20 years old. A couple good whacks off the shooting table and they shoot fine. Just dont get em' wet.
You never know when our government will decide to ban high capacity mags, assault weapons, handguns, certain types of ammo, etc. So, I chose to get it now so I have it. I guess it helps me sleep better at night knowing my .45s are loaded with 230 grain hydra-shoks.
And I have a feeling of security at work knowing the wife is always carrying her .380 loaded with cor-bons.
We just chose to live different lives. Nothing wrong with that. But I ain't sharing when the *censored* hits the fan, unless you are standing beside me. Freetown Fred gets a pass cause he is an old biker, and as a biker, I can't let down another biker.
