    Set your price and load up?

    Ammo is finally coming back down in price. However, Sleepy joe and da hoe are still in office, so we aren't out of the woods yet.

    "Well I have my thousand rounds and..."


    Let's get away from the misguided prepper BS where "all you need" is 1,000 rounds. Why do they believe that? Cause 99% of them don't actually TRAIN.

    True SHTF situations will require a serious student of violence. You can't "study" if you aren't training. Reading "the ranger handbook" or even Max's Tactical manual (much better IMO) isn't enough. "Dry firing" isn't enough. You have to be actively training and practicing if you really want to survive/win a fight.

    One thousand rounds of rifle ammo and one thousand rounds of pistol ammo would be the minimum I would consider for setting aside for TRAINING every YEAR.

    Guys, you can tell when you teach classes who trains/practices regularly and who doesn't. Those valuable seconds looking at your rifle because your not used to working with it could cost you your life one day. See it all the time...

    Besides, training and practice is FUN- or should be. If your not enjoying pushing yourself a bit I would submit to you that you should take up golf.... Wear the little beret looking hat, put your clubs in a golf cart so you don't have to walk- or pay a kid to carry your gear or whatever. And when your in that sandtrap it should feel familiar cause you already have one foot in the grave....

    We have had several 70+ students in our NV classes. They were out there in the cold, in the dark, they were learning their equipment, they were doing it. You know what? We made exceptions for them, we checked on them regularly (James was attached at the hip to one of them).

    One regularly drives from Virginia and attends every class we host, I don't know for 100% certain his age, but I would be greatly surprised if he was under 65.

    What do I say this? Cause you got no frickin excuse if your serious about survival and aren't training, period.

    Rant off..

    So given that most of us need a regular ONGOING supply of training ammo.

    We have to balance purchasing of this so as to avoid rushing out and paying $800. a case for cheap 9mm just so we can keep at it.

    The phrase we have all been using for 100 years in the survival movement comes to mind-

    "Buy it cheap and stack it deep!"

    So what's your realistic price point to buy more?

    Always good to make plans and trigger points, it saves on the waffling around about doing something.

    For me-

    I will add a couple cases when 9mm (wolf cheap training ammo) hits $320.
    I will try to get 5-10 cases when it hits $250. or so (maybe not realistic in this time period).

    That sort of plan will getting you buying "a little" when it's not astronomical, but buying a LOT when the price becomes more realistic.

    Good post.
    My only mess up was not getting 556 when it was low. Got into the AR game late and figured " meh, rifle of Russia good enough..." since I did stack deep for it.

    I'm starting to see some ammo ...13$ per 50. @ a big box store.limit 4 .

    That and more 9mm are on my list
    Hey Petunia...you dropped your man pad!

    Just waiting for prices to come down a little more, and the hospital bills to all come in, and then I'll be due for a case of each. I know Santa would want me to have it. He whispers it in my ear every time I get the SG mailer...

    $355. delivered per K on 5.45 recently on Ammoman.com

    I try to use SGAmmo.com as much as possible but lately Classic and Ammoman have been offering better prices and SG seems a little slow to drop prices.

    You all probably saw this yesterday but our Depends wearing dictator (his controllers more likely) banned the import of Russian ammo yesterday.

    Hopefully you stocked up on X39 and 5.45 Not a lot of reasonably priced options out there for those.

    Yugo X39 seems to still be out there, but I've never been a huge fan. Only brass cased X39 I've ever seen jam...

    Cheap 9mm and cheap steel cased .223 will be gone now also.

    9mm is out there but pricey and no x39. What do I need? Nothing.
