America’s love affair with guns is only getting stronger.

New federal data shows that there are 422.9 million firearms in circulation, or about 1.2 guns for every person in the country.
What’s more, despite years of criticism of modern “assault-style” rifles such as the AR-15 and AK-47, there are a record 17.7 million in private hands, proving that it is the most popular gun around.
And last year alone, the arms industry produced 8.1 billion rounds of ammunition.
The figures are from the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives and were crunched by the National Shooting Sports Foundation, the gun industry trade group.




“These figures show the industry that America has a strong desire to continue to purchase firearms for lawful purposes,” ...

Locally, only the cops and MS13 are allowed to have guns. Everyone else is at the mercy of those two similar groups.

Of the approx 326 million people in this country i would imagine 250 million of us have guns.

1.8 Billion rounds of ammo...bought at the store. They'd crap their pants if they added in the ammo of people who make their own.

That's just per year. Think about the people who buy it cheap and stack it deep so to speak, for years.

Hell, I've got 2800 rounds of a specific load geared to a specific rifle, sighted in to zero at a specific range.

Load, firearm, and zero yardage never change.

Reinforced, buried, Conex Boxes are said to be popular with folks in the California Sierra Foothills. Just what I've heard..

These are people, who quit buying gold and silver and invested in NATO Ammo.. So I'm told.
