    THis is 600 rounds for a .380....10,000 rounds would be roughly $2,500 and amount to 17 of those boxes.  That's stockpiling ammo whether your intentions are good or not.
    You picked a pistol cartridge, I'm guessing the guy we keep talking about  bought 5.56 or .223.  But whatever, I don't think 10k rounds is a lot.  I "stockpile" certain types of ammo because sometimes I get a good deal (.22lr, surplus 30.06 or 7.62x54r for example).
    Right so even more expensive and requiring more boxes.  17 boxes....I'm guessing you don't go spend $2,500-$3,000 on ammo.
    No, I ll spend up to $400 if it is a good deal. I see what you are saying. 
    I'll ride the wave where it takes me......

    From what I’ve seen, most people stock up on goods when they think the prices are about to skyrocket or supply will become scarce.  Politicians on the left (and some peeps on here)like to talk about taxing ammo to make it unaffordable....so any time it looks like a Democrat will get elected, people stock up while it is still available and cheap.  From a marketing standpoint, firearm and ammo manufacturers’ profits go through the roof the more gun control is politicized.
    Point is, it really doesn’t shock me when I hear of someone, especially competitive shooters, “stockpiling”.

    We aren't talking about competitive shooters.  We are talking about a guy threatening to kill federal agents.

    That’s irrelevant to the point I mentioned.  Many times people are shocked when the media says someone owns a lot of ammo...which is actually fairly normal in the good ol’ USA.  The reasons that has become normalized are probably of greater concern.

    It isn't normal.  I'm a gun owner.  10,000 rounds isn't normal.

    What guns do you own? How often do you shoot?

    I get it, I sure could not afford that kind of stockpile, but I would be willing to bet it is more normal across the country than you think.  Making threats against federal agents, that is what is not normal.

    Yeah go shoot up a piece of paper or something.
    Very adult of you.  Good burn.
    Thanks....thought of that off the top of my head
    I'm waiting for the part where I don't know what I am talking about.  That is what I was hoping for.
    If you get ticketed for jay walking are you a responsible gun owner?
    I would have hoped that the average gun owner sees the difference between threats of violence and jay walking. Maybe not. 
     
    I would have hoped the average Canadian would recognize sarcasm. Maybe not.  


    Sure, because you are always sarcastic about gun use.

    Your addiction to and your laws surrounding guns are what is not normal.

    No more hostages, just the shooter who is barricaded inside. 

    Man who shot 6 Philadelphia cops and held police in lengthy standoff taken into custody, authorities say

    A gunman who opened fire on Philadelphia police Wednesday as they were serving a drug warrant, wounding six officers and triggering a standoff that extended into the night, is in police custody, authorities said.

    Philadelphia police Sgt. Eric Gripp said early Thursday that the man was taken into custody after an hours-long standoff with police. The man was identified by 6abc.com as Eric Hill, 34. Hill has a lengthy rap sheet of drug offenses dating to 2003, the television station said.

    The shooting began around 4:30 p.m. as officers went to a home in a north Philadelphia neighborhood of brick and stone rowhomes to serve a narcotics warrant in an operation "that went awry almost immediately," Philadelphia Police Commissioner Richard Ross said.

    Many officers "had to escape through windows and doors to get (away) from a barrage of bullets," Ross said.

    The six officers who were struck by gunfire have been released from hospitals, Gripp said.

    Sounds like a responsible gun owner.  I wonder if he got a price break on his ammo by buying in bulk.

    How was he a responsible gun owner?  Did you miss the part of the story about the past drug offenses?
    You mentioned that you are a gun owner...are you “responsible”?

    Somewhere along the line from production to sale of the firearms he possessed, a “responsible” gun owner was “responsible.” Unless you believe in the gun fairy, answering wishes and prayers and leaving them under pillows?

    Denial isn’t a river in Egypt. So, how does a person with past drug offenses come into possession of firearms, if not for “responsible” gun owners? And how does it happen in Tejas?

    To be fair,  according to some of the logic here,  so long as his past drug offenses didn't include a firearm,  he's still a responsible gun owner.  Personally,  I would consider him a gun owner AND irresponsible.

    I must have missed that “logic”.  I was under the impression that it is illegal to own firearms if you are a convicted felon or have a rap sheet full of drug offenses.  Oh, wait, this shit-for-brains didn’t care.

    I must have missed that “logic”.  I was under the impression that it is illegal to own firearms if you are a convicted felon or have a rap sheet full of drug offenses.  Oh, wait, this shit-for-brains didn’t care.
    And neither did a “responsible” gun owner.
    Irresponsible people can get their hands on guns, got it.  

    Because of “responsible” gun owners, got it.

    Sounds like a responsible gun owner.  I wonder if he got a price break on his ammo by buying in bulk.
    How was he a responsible gun owner?  Did you miss the part of the story about the past drug offenses?
    You mentioned that you are a gun owner...are you “responsible”?
    To be fair,  according to some of the logic here,  so long as his past drug offenses didn't include a firearm,  he's still a responsible gun owner.  Personally,  I would consider him a gun owner AND irresponsible.

    Your Gun laws are laughable.

    10,000 handgun bullets is a stockpile, period.
    They weren't target rounds either, so quit trying to justify this insanity because it makes you uncomfortable that your hobby is so closely adjacent to disturbing behavior.

    I've seen about 5 articles that specifically mention his quote advising people to "shoot all Federal officers on sight".
    Again, don't defend this wacko just because it makes you uncomfortable to be in a boat similar to his, do the research instead of playing the "don't know, can't say" card.

    I'll pipe up.

    I defend actions that I do/have done.  I keep forgetting that everyone ins't like myself, "responsible".

    The outrage is understandable as I tend to forget that others won't conduct themselves as I do.

    We'll hopefully find a way to something amicable.

    EDIT:  I tried finding other articles with what the dude said/threatened and came up zilcho.  Perhaps a day or so later more info has come out because initially it wasn't out there, just read the first two posted on here.

    Who are you talking to?  I sure as hell am not “defending” this wacko.  “A boat similar to his”?  What a joke...If he made threats against federal agents, then he should definitely be investigated.

    I defended certain things because I didn't have all the facts and because people like to throw gas on the fire before all the info comes out.

    That seems like a normal train of thought in a country that favors due process.  How dare you believe someone is innocent until proven guilty!

    You mean like, “lock her up” innocent until proven guilty? Or Benghazi innocent until proven guilty? Maybe Uranium One innocent or Cosmic Pizza innocent? Give us a break from your fetish defense please. And some people voted a certain way because of that “guilt.”
