..lots of ammo..
« on: December 26, 2018, 03:11:20 PM »
.
I keep my ammo locked in 2 large black boxes (in the garage) and when we made the move to our new place I repacked it all in smaller boxes (so I could lift it)

just finished unpacking all and putting back into the 2 larger boxes and dang.....I've sure got a lot of .45, .40 and .380 ammo - more than I'll ever shoot - I guess I bought what was available during the last "ammo shortage"

oh well

Tango,
we'd be happy to sponsor a "Help Tango use his ammo"-athon.
Just let us know what weekend works for you.

Your friends at TGF.

Sounds like YOU are the reason for the last ammo shortage.

I think WE need to stage an intervention here guys,,,,, :th_thicon_lol:

after packing away most of what I've got I did keep out a selection of different calibers that I might realistically shoot on some outing (in a couple of smaller boxes, atop the other stuff) - some .45, .40, .380, both 9mms, 5.7, 5.56 and my .22lr, .17hmr and shotgun stuff is easy to get to

so yes.....another Madisonville type of "shoot" would be welcome (when the weather gets a little more reliable and warm)

hmmmmmmm. . . . just set down and rest a while. we all realize you're just
tired and kinda confused from all the b.s. involved with moving and all.
rest up and it'll pass.

I did a major caliber trim when it looked like obummer was going to win Potus.
I got rid of any wildcat calibers, and many more.
I narrowed it down to what I felt I needed that could cover ALL my hunting needs, and could be easily supplied, then stocked up for the oncoming crunch..

All I got in pistol ammo is 22 lr & 22 mag for my ruger single sixes.
9mm, 327, 357 & .45.

My rifles, I kept 22lr & 22 mag, 2.23/5.56, 308, 270 & 30-06.

Now exactly how much of those few I got is classified.  :th_thicon_funny:
But I have only bought 9mm since 2008 since thats my EDC & range fun gun calibers.. :P

The 327 Fm was the only odd ball caliber and I bought it in a 5.5 Blackhawk in 2008, and also bought 1K rounds to go with it,, just in case. I used it alot for coyote hunting. Its no range toy and does not get shot unless its in anger at varmints .  :th_KO:  It sure makes a mess of em.  :facepalm: I dont think Ive used  200 rounds through it.
