All joking aside, that is probably very good advice!

Hmm, I don't. I have always kept an adequate supply, one year min, for all my shooting needs. The cost of gas is limiting me more than ammo. I have to drive a min of 60 miles round trip to shoot, IDPA matches are further, throw in match or range fees, ammo is the cheap part.

Jees Fred when are you going to learn. Your car is bad for the environment. There car is just fine.

My plan for this weekends IDPA is lead bullets I made myself. That way I am just using primers and a little powder.
