    Is there a limit as to how much ammo you can have at home legal wise that is? we all like to have a good supply but is there a point where its to much?

    Not in Tennessee, unless you get so much that the local National Guard considers you a backup source of ammo in a national emergency.

    Your state may be different.

    It is up to the State to decide. Some have limits for HAZMAT.

    When the floor caves in, you have too much. Reinforce the floor and your good to go again. My state has no limit as far as I know. Keep it stored safely in the factory spam cans in wooden boxes or GI ammo cans. Also, ammo does not explode in a fire, (which is everyone's biggest fear) it just comes apart. I'd be more afraid of five gallons of gas stored in my garage or out building then 100,000 rds. of ammo stored properly.

    lol sounds like NRAJoe is gonna have another "unfortunate boating accident on that dreaded lake" like the rest of us over on the M16/AR15 forum section.:09:
  8. Good thought!
    Hmm, that is worth checking out in my local town fire ordanance.
  9. Your only allowed 10 rounds per firearm. Anything over that has to be immediately sent to me for proper disposal. (Ill shoot it).

    Too much is never enough !!! Look on it as an "investment" as material prices climb, kalifornia wackiness infringes on good old lead, and shadows of BO stalk the white house. Don't think the price'll be going down anytime soon.

    Well, my opinion on this is, that even if you have no local laws or limits, that won't prevent the cops from arresting you. You see those stories all the time. "Man arrested with cache of weapons, over 10K rounds of ammunition!"

    That could be 20 bricks of cheap Wal-mart .22 ammo.
  13. Get as much as you want... nobody needs to know.
