How many rounds is enough?
So, my preferred caliber for handguns is 9mm.
Currently, I have 3000 rounds as my "SHTF stash." This is put away and not touched.
Is it enough? I am speaking just for handguns...not long guns.
What say you?

I'd tell you but then I'd have to... you know."Persons who, according to the Nürnberg law, are regarded as Jews, are forbidden to possess any weapon."

How many handgun rounds do you think you can fire off when SHTF, before you catch one yourself? Probably not 3000. Probably not even 300. My SHTF gun is a BCM AR, get a rifle or shotgun for SHTF.
Better reason son to stock up on ammo is so you can still practice when the next Prez tries to ban stuff. I'm buying up 5.56 while prices are relatively normal.

I'm curious what kind of situation can be resolved by no less than 3,000 rounds of 9mm?

Find out just what any people will quietly submit to and you have found out the exact measure of injustice and wrong which will be imposed upon them, and these will continue till they are resisted with either words or blows, or both. The limits of tyrants are prescribed by the endurance of those whom they oppress.” – Frederick Douglass
