Sometimes it pays to be disorganized.

I'm not very organized. I'm alone with just my cats and a new Puppy, so I can, and I am, as sloppy as I want to be.

I've never liked keeping records or putting things/guns back where they belong.
Stuff is piled on most every flat surface and guns may lay on a table for weeks before I get around to putting it "where it belongs".
So sometimes things get forgotten.

This is not always a bad thing.

During the last big ammo/gun shortage I ran across 400 rounds of .223 Wolf I forgot I had. Then I found 1,400 rounds of .380 by chance that I had "put away".

A couple months ago I found a 350 round battle pack of .223 and some more Wolf .223.

Yesterday, in a 50 cal steel ammo can, containing a bunch of120 grain Silver Bear JHP, I found 25 boxes of Dynamit Nobel 32 ACP ammo (good ammo). The date I wrote on the boxes was 2002.
I guess I had bought 2,000 rounds and had used 500 rounds.

One of these days I have to get organized, no telling what I may find.

I can be OCD about my ****.

My wife, OTOH, could use some help.

My ammo is all sorted by caliber; yet some shares some shelves.

I like to know what I have at all times. My mentality is that if I have to "get it and go", I want to be squared away.

Umm...congrats on your find.

You're not alone my friend. I have all my ammo in "neat freak" order as well. Just makes it easier for me to know what needs to be replenished before I run out. It goes with everything else I have as well including tools, car, etc. It really is a sickness...haha! But like my dad taught me, it doesn't cost anything to be neat.

My cats - especially the two youngest - could show a civil engineer a thing or two about "the angle of repose". My neat vertical stacks of goodies quickly become horizontal sprawls.

About three days ago I realized I had close to a thousand rounds of reloads that were on a shelf just below my reloading bench's table top. Had no idea they were there for a few years now.

Time to go shooting

I am glad that I am not the only one. http://www.glocktalk.com/forums/show....php?t=1475180

Now I am wondering if I have any more somewhere that I have forgot about. Maybe tomorrow I will look around a bit. But probably not until next week. Or maybe after that.

I'm the same.

I not only sort mine by caliber (which I keep every caliber on a different shelf) but I also store mine by age, oldest on the left, newest on the right.

When I buy ammo, i put it on the right side of the pile and when I go shooting I take it from the left side.

If you ever want someone to come help organize (and play with your kitties), let me know.
