I'm still in decent shape, pick up enough to maintain the stock, and although they have dipped a bit , still, have plenty, I got in the habit I guess 17 years ago. Everytime I'd go to a gun show I'd pick up at least 1/2 case, sometimes a full case. It was plentiful, & cheap & if stored in a reasonable fashion has a long shelf life.
Then 3 years ago when ammo got higher at the gunshows, than at Wal Mart, I'd buy 5 boxes anytime I went to there. I know of a few that had stockpiled more than I did.
So now that it is coming back pick up an extra box or two and the next time there is an ammo shortage you will have hedged your bets.
