You also bought 1,529,635,000 rounds of ammunition in just the month of December 2008. Yeah that is right, that is Billion with a “B”. This number takes no accounting of reloading or reloaded ammunition.

Way to go you all, I did my share, did you?

Ammo

I did more than my share but being cheap - I started about 18 months ago.

It's too late for me, save yourself.

It was in November when Acorn elected their Messiah.

Ivan, how in the hell did a life long "Mother trucker" like you never own a gun?
I know you all have those great bats for checking tires, but I would've had a sawed off with me all the time. I carry a 18" bbl Winchester Defender over the door in my Travel Trailer. 12 ga with buckshot and yes it is always loaded, like any gun that I have. When my grandkids are here, I have a locked saafe room. But I still carry a pocket pistol, loaded.

Bought 2000 rounds of 9mm, 50 rounds of 45 ACP and components for reloading 45 long colt plus 2000 rounds of 22lr. Tried to buy a case of 7.62X39 but it was too expensive.
Bought a 45 blackhawk, ak-47 variant(saiga) and a M9 beretta.
I will buy a 50 cal beowulf upper with reloading dies and brass......
