How much ammo you really need
These would be the bare minimum requirments for a short term combat situation. We don't mean to imply that you only need this much no matter what...
- Combat rifle (AR, AK, SKS, SLR etc): 1000 rounds, 6 20-30 round mags
- 'sniper' rifle (semi auto, bolt): 200 rounds of match grade ammo
- Shotgun 200 rounds of mixed hunting and combat
- Handgun 200 rounds, 3 magazines or 'speed loaders'
As you can see, we place very little emphasis on handguns. We consider them to be a last resort weapon only.
