Re: Women's Guns

What are your favorite handguns if you're a woman, or your wife/girlfriend.. And why? Boo just got this for her concealed carry. We have a 9mm Semi (CZ) but she has a bit of arthritis and it is hard for her to pull the slide back. This is a 38 Special and with +P loads it makes a great close quarte...

Re: hunting, going from suburban, urban to rural on foot

Ive been wondering about this forever. If I bug out I had the idea I would be possibly hunting small game along the way. If I had to trek long way. Many people say the game will dissappear (from over-hunting?). Im not sure I believe that. There are hoards of squirrel in my area. And I know where th...

Bud's gun shop had to send an email out to its customer base explaining how swamped they have been: "After spending the first six weeks of 2012 attending various firearms industry shows, including the NSSF Shot Show in Las Vegas with the highest dealer attendance of record, there was one obvious rec...

Re: How Much Ammo?

Boo, Just curious as the the reasoning for the non-AR stipulation. The query isn't to talk you into it, it's because of the commonality of the rifle and the ready supply of parts, as well as caliber choices. I'm looking at the Ruger Gunsight Scout. I have a friend, that has a friend who owns one. H...

Re: How Much Ammo?

...I've read you can get started fairly simply for a couple of hundred bucks or less in equipment and your first dies.

from BullonParade: "Any interest in reloading? If you talked about it already, I must have missed it, and I'm sorry. But reloading will stretch your spent brass further, allowing for more money to be spent on new ammo/more components. If you have more money than time, fill your boots. " Absolutely, ...

Re: How Much Ammo?

Narrow down your ammo calibers. All those hunting calibers serve a purpose, but one common caliber would be a greater resource. Get a general LR caliber that can be used for SD and hunting. 30-06 os the most common hunting caliber in the US followed by 308. In the military a basic load is 7 mags ri...

The .20 pellet is not used in as many rifles/pistols as the others but it has some advantages...especially...

Re: How Much Ammo?

As a serious metric: many professional training classes will expect you to shoot on the order of 500-750 rounds per day. You should have enough on hand to do a 4 day class. That is 2000-3000 rounds of training level ammo. For 9mm runs around $600, and 556 runs under $1000. Keep that on hand; replac...

Re: How Much Ammo?

As you stated in the OP, I'd prefer to consolidate my ammo types by being selective in my firearms purchases. I personally stock 22lr(5000~), 45acp(600), .223/5.56(3500), and 12ga(350). I also own a 30-30 and 357mag, but those aren't priority on my list for stock. Yes, I want as much ammo as I can ...
