    I lost all my ammo on a second tragic boating accident.
    “Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch. Liberty is a well-armed lamb contesting the vote" - Benjamin Franklin

    When Leonidas was preparing to make his stand, a Persian envoy arrived. The envoy explained to Leonidas the futility of trying to resist the advance of the huge Persian army and demanded that the Spartans lay down their arms. Leonidas told Xerxes "MOLON LABE", or "Come And Get Them."

    I think I lost all my magazines that hold more than 10 rounds in a similar accident.

    I really don't have a clue but I have plenty of .223, 300 BLK, 45 ACP and 9mm. Meaning that if I went to the range for 6 hours I wouldn't run out. I am very low on .380 Auto, OK on 44 Magnum but could use more (I think) and .32 Winchester Special 45-70 Govt are lean but I don't shoot those much and have plenty of components to load hundreds. Shotgun shell inventory is adequate for the small amount that I shoot in slugs, buck and birdshot. I don't reload those.

    The .357 Magnum is pricey enough to start to consider hand loading if you shoot a few hundred per month.

    380 auto, only about 350-400
    17 WSM - maybe 490
    300 blackout - less than 125 ( new gun)
    12GA - maybe 275
    Everything else is WELL over 500
    PT1911 - 45ACP, Pietta 1873 SAA - 45LC, PT709SS slim, Heritage RR 6.5" 22LR/Mag dual cylinders
    1939 Tula 91/30 Nugget, Evil Copper and Black Rifle, Savage B-Mag in 17WSM

    Probably somewhere around 3,000 to 4,000 rounds. .22, .22mag, .380acp, 9mm, .40 S&W, .45acp, .38spl., .357mag., .45 Colt, 12 gauge, .223 and 5.56. No where near enough.

    I had more than my car can carry but in went down in that boating accident with my firearms. Plus guns are scary.

    I am one of the slapdash seamen and bungling boatmen who have lost all of their bullets on the bounty main but while reminiscing about lead lost at sea I seem to recall that one little box held 525 rounds of .22lr. So stock up!

    A few years back during three consequative rainy days I was bored and inventoried all my ammo. I entered it all on a spreadsheet on the computer. Since then I've shot some and bought some and the spreadsheet is now in the plus or minus range. In other words, it's not too accurate. I've still got enough in all the calibers that I shoot often to handle the first few days of a minor zombie apocalypse. I probably should inventory it all again but I just can't seem to able to force myself to do it. Until then, "enough" is as close as I can come to a hard and fast number.

    I have enough to last me the rest of my life if I die before I run out of ammo.
