    All set, don't need anything. For a good while. Wow

    Don’t want to know, that whole plausible deniability thing;)
    If I don’t know I have I can play stupid...right!:cry:

    Plus I’m not that organized, I would confuse myself trying to figure out what I counted :interesting:

    None. Not a bit. Nor brass/bullets for one. I don't have anything that shoots .45LC, hence no stuff

    The next great ammo shortage is right around the corner. It may be bigger than any previous droughts. It is a good time to figure out what you have, and what you need, to keep shooting for several years.

    Not sure I understand. If I don't need it, why would I accumulate it?

    I don't see any shortages coming short or long term...

    ...last time it was a perfect storm of a powder plant having a fire, a lot of mfg's being unprepared for increased demand, politics ...and then "hoarding" made it worse....

    I don't want to hoard more than I need...but I think keeping an inventory of components for what you shoot annually ...and replenish your inventory every 4 months or so is smart.

    You must be extremely fortunate.. I always find there's something I need!

    Just like before you had ALL that stuff... you must have had a need for it.... or based on your thought process, you would have just been accumulating it.
    Anyway.... sorry I wasn't clear in my post that made it confusing.

    I think it is a two step process. Once you know what you have you can compare it against what you believe you need. What any of us need is fairly subjective.

    Complete inventory? I don't know how much of anything I have. I do know where everything is though.

    I wish my debt load was less, or I had a higher income, or both as I am missing out a lot on these low prices.

    I "think" I know where everything is. God forbid my wife ever look in my "ToyBox" and see all my Powder and Primers that I don't have out in plain view.

    I have posted this before I think just not sure where......I was talking to the guy that runs the local range here and he told me about trunk loads of Ammo (mostly 5.56. .22 LF) and Powder/Primers by the pallets being hauled out to the Western Desert here in Utah to an old Army where they were dumped in a pit and burned.

    Being neat and tidy with firearms related equipment is no good.
    You have gone against the manly man rule #462 .
    Counting your stuff only confuses you and lowers your testosterone ievel.
    Be advised you can NEVER have enough ammo,guns and firearms related junk !!!
    Give yourself every opportunity to accumulate more of everything.
    Do what I do , throw all your supplies in a pile and get your man card back
    Here’s an example for you:
