I mean, if you "just" started. I'd be willing to bet most that have "decent" quantities are like me and have been buying a LOT longer than the last year or so. Razz

I pity any man trying to stockpile ammunition right now. I spent more than 15 years getting quantities up. I'm confident that this is not uncommon.

If you get an 03 FFL (collector of curios and relics, $33, good for three years) and a CA DOJ COE (certificate of eligibility, $75, good for one year) you can legally buy online and have it shipped to your house, just like the pre-ammo ban days.

The only problem is that maybe a third of online retailers refuse to deal with CA (SGAmmo comes to mind. Btw, great folks and yet another good reason to escape this communist “utopia”), maybe another third will ship it to CA, but only to bricks and mortar gun stores, leaving you about a third of the online market. Use ammoseek.com to find the deals, go to the website’s contact page and ask them if the follow the exemption and how to upload your docs. It takes a little more effort, but residents of Kommiefornia still can buy online.

Email is in my profile. If you shoot an email I’ll send the list I’ve built of who will and won’t ship direct. You should still check, but it will give you a headstart.

I even have about 10k in .45 and I don't even own a .45 caliber weapon. Decided a few years ago to stick to 9mm, 223, 12 gauge and 22LR for the most part. Decently stocked in 308, 30-30 and 357 magnum but probably should get some more. Sierra Match King is expensive.

Y'all apparently are more organized than I am...We moved 5 years ago, and I swore at that time I had more than enough to last a lifetime - including 223 mags...I don't shoot as often as I used to or should, so it hasn't appreciably changed.

I could be talked into burning into that inventory, if say the bird brothers decided to hold another invitational. Hint! Wink

I have tons of the 223 and 9mm for the zombie apocalypse and an adequate supply of .38 for your daily run of the mill bad guys. For fun, and because there was a time .22 was impossible to get, I have two lifetimes supply!

I started to increase my buying around the 2016 election.

I feel secure in my totals.

I am still shooting ammo from the 2012(?) election.

I do not regret laying in deep when ammo was cheap.

And, since then, California has made ammo a background checked affair--which makes price shopping a burdensome process.

Yes, we met one afternoon for lunch with V-tail. Had some BBQ as I recall. Both awesome folks; I'd be honored to break bread with them again anytime.

This is the boat I'm in right now, except 9mm practice ammo. The FedEx guy hated me for a good period. Need to start stacking the practice stuff because I plan on getting back into regular shooting and matches again in the spring.

on an inflation adjusted scale, 9mm WWB is about as cheap as it's been in 15+ years if you look at some of the deals out there.

I'm stocking up again...

I really don't think prices and availability are bad now. There are lots of places with Black Friday sales going on. One local place is closed today to prepare for the onslaught on Friday. They are blowing out 9mm and 5.56 and have pallets and pallets on hand. I drove past them on Black Friday a few years ago and the line went on forever. I'd rather pay $20 more and just grab it the week before, which I did. I grabbed a bunch more 30 rd. PMags today and will pounce when the next good ammo deal with free shipping email comes in.

I got a bunch of P-Mags today too. I have a great collection of quality metal and Magpul mags for my AR's along with a few spare bolt carrier groups and other misc springs and parts. I can keep on firing that platform for quite a long time with what I have in rifles, mags, ammo, and parts.
Same for my pistols. Having a large collection of full sized mags loaded with HST's and many thousands of rounds of ball ammo for training I can keep shooting at my current pace for many years without having to buy anything.

So, you can’t drive to another state and acquire said magazine?pay cash…how can they ever enforce that?
