    If we experienced a complete collapse of America and an all out SHTF situation 95% of people on BS would perish in the first 3-6 months including myself more than likely unfortunately. Guns and ammo are definitely a plus in a hypothetical crazy time like that but guns and ammo alone aren’t going to be enough to survive.
    My guess is most people die in the first 30-60 days of a SHTF situation of dysentery and dehydration, due to a lack of fresh water. Those of us that have the means to make clean water, will have a leg up on the rest. That being said, I don't think most people can begin to imagine the social breakdown that will occur once people realize no one is coming to help them, the checks stop appearing, and the grocery stores are completely looted. Guns, and ammo, will definitely be a plus for those willing to tell their friends and neighbors there is nothing here worth your life.

    If everything went to hell tomorrow and there were no more guns or ammo to be had , would you have enough to get by ? Could you still go to the range occasionally and feel like you have enough ammo to handle a small " disturbance " should it be necessary ? At my present rate of consumption , I think I'm good on everything I shoot . I'm not interested in turning this into a who has the biggest stash contest . I'm just curious if people feel comfortable .
    If everything went to hell tomorrow and somehow no more guns and ammo were to be had , we wouldn’t be concerned with a range , we would be trying to survive and fighting over food

    I already stopped going to the range. Ammo now costs too much and can still be hard to find. I am well stocked but it can be difficult to re-stock.
    50-100 rounds every few weeks can go a long way keep your skills sharp. Shooting is a perishable skill. I don’t go to the range with several hundred rounds per caliber I’m shooting like I used too but I still go often, usually weekly to shoot some 9, 45, or 223/5.56. I’ll also bring something in 22 to make the trip more worthwhile.

    I agree definitely more expensive to replenish it now for sure but nothing is really hard to find online. Try ammobuy.com or ammoseek.con

    If you don't have enough arms and ammunition for the neighbors, you ain't got enough.
    I’m too stingy to be giving anything to my neighbors lol. Family and friends may get lucky and get a rifle and sidearm with some ammo if they didn’t have one but the neighbors idk. I’d like to think by now anyone with a half of brain has some sort of firearm and at least a few hundred rounds of ammo to go along with it.

    I'm guessing you have children to help with your crew served weapons.
