Just before the AWB panic struck, I changed my "platform" from 9mm to .40 Cal. I sold my CCW and bought a Glock 27 (which I really like), and traded my Glock, Gen4, 17 for a nice Desert Baby Eagle, 40 polymer, which I haven't fired yet. I already had a S&W 40 but as soon as I got the Glock I started buying 40.cal ammo. and then the panic hit. I now have 1,600 rounds. Now the questions...the day I bought the Glock I took a box of 50 out to try it. Obviously, I could have brought 150. I have this silly feeling that I don't want to shoot up my stash unless I can replace it, immediately. The next nice day I want to take the Glock and the Eagle out with a couple of hundred rds. Eight days of that and real trouble. So, I won't...I'll take maybe 75...and try to replenish. This is ridiculous to me. I'm willing to dwindle down to maybe 750 rds. and then, assuming I can't afford it or it simply isn't there, I guess I quit...but why? I have the mandatory AK-47 w/1000 rds..same scenario. It's tucked away for SHTF, which I seriously doubt will happen. I'm 65, and don't think I'll be needing countless rds. for zombie firefights. What do you guys think about this? I've thought, well I can always trade it for food or?. Looking ahead, with bad scenario, picture an ol' guy out at a "range", advertising he has guns and ammo..hmm. I'm just wondering how other guys think about it all. I've seen a lot of threads on "how much is enough" but this is a little different slant. Thanks.
