  •  I don't have THAT much ammo. (0+ / 0-)

    And I don't reload anymore, so all the powder supplies are gone.

      you were arguing that 6,000 rounds wasn't exorbitant (the Aurora shooter) and said that you often have thousands prior to a shooting match...

      And just how many does it take to whack a firefighter who comes in to save your home not knowing that there is a store of ammo on the premises?

        Right now my stores are actually kind low. Probably only around 2k 7.62x54R, 1k, .45ACP, and 600 7.62x39 with some assorted other ammo.

        Here's the thing.

        Modern ammo doesn't explode like it does in the movies. Yes, all of that going off at once would be very unpleasant, but it's not going to 'shoot' the bullet like you always see in the movies. I want to say Mythbusters did something on this. Also, I'd like to point out that if my wife or I was home, we'd tell them about having ammo in the house. Otherwise, one of my fellow instructors (who has, quite literally, hundreds and hundreds of pounds of ammo and powder) knows to tell them not to go in the house.

          it doesn't explode - I have scars on my left hand from when I was 15, sitting around a campfire, and an idiot decided it would be fun to throw some .22 LR rounds into the fire.

          You don't think it explodes?  Fine, then you should have no problem firing up the BBQ, throwing in a varied selection from your stock, and standing in front of the BBQ.

          Let me know how that works out...oh, wait, you won't be able to...
