Do you have your ammunition permit from the fire marshal?

If so you cannot store over 150 rounds

I have one round for each firearm I own. Dianne Feinstein has said one shot one kill is what all the hunters do and I believe her. I don't need any more than that, as I just pick up the next rifle in a 50 round milsup shoot off. I do think Feinstein is putting me at a disadvantage when I'm down to the muskets, but Obama'bin'biden and boxer and pelosi must be right......just my thoughts in the morning of a day gone by.

C'mon, folks, actual newbies may see this.

Real answer: for assembled ammunition, no limit outside your bank account or what your storage building's floor can support.

For powder/propellant not assembled into cartridges, the limit is in pounds, not tons, but I don't recall what it is, and it's related to fire safety.

My house is on a concrete slab so I think I'm good to go. Anyone know what kind of dead load a standard slab can take? :D

funny there is no legal limit but the first thing the cops and media will use to paint the picture of a bad person is "a stock pile of ammunition"

Just play it safe and build your ammo storage on bedrock. That way you won't have any sinkage problems. :D

The media. :rolleyes:

If the cops raided my house and only found my 9mm target ammo (1/2 full ammo can) they would call it a massive stock pile of over 1,000 rounds of ammunition, and paint me as a militant nutcase ready to take on the world.

And you know they would! Don't partake myself but years ago knew an older couple, both in theri mid 60's, that had some 5 gallon buckets with scrawny, 3 ft. marijuana plants in each of them. The cops came in with full armor, ar-15's..the works, bout gave them both heart attacks. Of course it turned out these 5 pitiful plants were worth over $125,000 once they made the papers. Funny how this country, the so called beacon of the world that preaches its impeccable values and holds itself up as the example that all countries should emulate, has turned to routinely accept bald face lies as the norm.

This.

I think for smokeless powder its like 20 LBs. For black power not more than 1lb. I think.

Otherwise whatever Librarian said.

The media would make a big deal if you were found to have 550 rounds of .22lr! Hell, I once had some citizen volunteers for the local PD try to make a big deal about my having less than 100 rounds of ammo in my car which was parked in my driveway. If they had only seen what was in my garage........

I wonder if they found 2 ammo cans... enough to supply a full-scale army.

Slab can hold enough for a race war but not enough for a zombie apocalypse.

They thought you should've had more ammo, and gave you trouble for having less than 100 rounds? My kinda people :p

I seem to remember the limit as 8 lbs of powder. I could be wrong

Rats.

I'm creeped out - I actually have more than you - and that's...unsettling :)

I expected you to have a warehousefull :)

We thought 10 cases of a thousand of every caliber we use would be adequate.


That stuff is HEAVy !

Obviously this is a good thread to post this on. :13:
Suppose to be satire but here in the PRK ....

Ten Good Reasons To Ban Guns.


1. Guns are used in self-defense over 2 million times a year. However, this makes the attempted crime a "non-event," which necessarily complicates the Police investigation. Without civilian ownership of guns, these Police investigations would not have been compromised. Civilians should leave crime prevention to the Police, who are properly equipped to investigate following the crime's completion.

2. Some .004 % (4/1000 of 1%) of guns are used in crime each year. This is way too high. All guns should be banned.

3. Guns are unnecessary. In 98% of civilian gun defenses, no shot is fired. If you are not going to fire a shot, you clearly don't need a gun. This proves that the guns are unnecessary. Banning guns will prevent these unnecessary defenses.

4. Guns cause criminal migration. In tough gun-law Washington, D. C., violent crime rates are very high. This high crime rate is caused by the migration of criminals from gun havens like Virginia. This migration is caused by the criminal's cowardly avoidance of armed householders and concealed-carry civilians. This criminal migration is detrimental to helpless unarmed citizens in no-gun areas and must be stopped. Therefore, guns should be banned everywhere.

5. Most gun crimes are committed by inner city gangs and drug dealers. These relatively small and geographically restricted groups consistently commit the majority of gun crimes, which usually peak as turf wars erupt over Drug War changes. The best way to prevent this is by denying guns to all law abiding people everywhere.

6. No woman needs to protect herself from rape, assault or murder. The Police will protect women by investigating the crime after the fact. Remember, Police paperwork is all the protection anyone really needs.

7. Guns owners are disrespectful of authority. Good citizens should completely rely on the authorities. A failure to do so is an invariable sign of improper and overly independent attitudes. Failure to completely and absolutely trust and depend on the authorities is excessive democracy and sends a bad message to children.

8. Guns owners engaging in self-defense are taking the law into their own hands. This is wrong. Only the Police and Criminals have the right to take the law into their own hands. Guns should be kept out of the hands of law abiding citizens.

9. Children and young people should remain ignorant about guns. Real guns and real gun knowledge dissipate the fantasies created by violent video games and TV. Ignorance, once lost, can never be restored and needs to be protected. Not to mention the lost sales of all the violent movies, TV shows, video games, etc!

10. Guns reduce people's reliance on the Police and Government. This fosters a mistaken belief in "rights". No person has the right to question authority. No person should be less than 100% dependent on authority. This is fundamental to social order. Banning guns will help to establish the Order the authorities want.. This is good.

From a Fire Dept. Inspector the limit in Clovis, CA is 20# of smokeless powder unless you have a permit. He then cleared his throat and said "that isn't going to happen in a residential area." I didn't think to ask him about a limit on rounds or black powder.

Yes it is a serious question,
the 20 rounds was a joke.
So is the general consensus that we we can own as much ammo as we can afford and store, without being singled out?
Not trying to get into trouble is all!

There is NO limit on the number of rds you can have.

Not merely consensus - there is no law at the state level that regulates the amount of assembled ammunition which may be possessed by a private individual.

I have heard of no law at either county or municipal levels that addresses the issue.

See here (http://www.calguns.net/calgunforum/showthread.php?p=3725047#post3725047), this was coming up a lot so I added that info to the FAQ back in January. Now in FAQ: What about ammunition and reloading supplies? (http://wiki.calgunsfoundation.org/index.php/FAQ#What_about_ammunition_and_reloading_supplies.3 F) :)
