    I know this question has been asked not sure if it has been fully addressed.
    So here it goes.
    A firearms owner to be responsible should at all times remain proficient with all his firearms, This would require a large amount of ammo
    I go to the range at least once a month and shoot 600 to a thousand rounds per firearm I take to the range.
    I take at least 5 firearms with me because no firearm is the same as another one even if they are the same make and model and caliber of firearm.
    Now you add that amount of rounds that I use on the range plus the amount that is above my minimum level cut off point. (My minimum level is a 500 rounds per firearm.) It would not be hard to see why I would need a lot of ammo.
    Now if there is a restriction of the amount of ammo you can have, how as a responsible firearms owner stay proficient and continue to be responsible?
    Do other gun owners understand the point I am trying to make?

    I show how a responsible gun owner should be and liberals say nothing. I guess with liberals their argument is total bull shit

    You understand most people don't shoot that much, right? Heck, cops dont shoot that much. Not maybe in their careers.
    Now, I dont care how much ammo someone has or doesn't have. Ammo is the poor man's gold. But if you ask why people are amendable to ammo restrictions the reason is what you do is outside their experience.

    Nobody is saying how much ammo you can have. What they ARE saying is how much ammo you can have in your weapon prior to having to reload.

    Do you REALLY need 30-100 rounds per magazine?

    Even when I was in the military and part of the Security Forces, we didn't use high round magazines for practice, we used normal ones, because that was the kind we'd be carrying out on patrol.

    A few years back when I was competing heavily, I would put 20,000 rounds a year downrange, no problem.

    oh really in your world of loonieville sane would mean insane. I'm whether stunned what in my post thread was ignorant paranoid or makes me a lunatic? Do you have any idea what those words actually mean? Just because I am not dependent on the government like you are I can view the world differently.
    After all firearms are tools and to maintain a high standard and proficiency you must use those tools, you cannot do that and be force too have only a restricted amount of rounds at one time.

    Did you fire those rounds out of 30 - 100 round magazines?
