I have been using XD Talk for the past few months for a lot of good information and this is my first post. I am one of the 5 million new 2A owners this year for obvious reasons and had no reason to stock ammo prior to the major shortage. I have been to the range several times since purchasing in June and now have my CCW. Given the massive shortage and high prices, how many rounds should I keep in stock? I have a decent stock of FMJ's but have been a bit hesitant to go to the range in order to conserve them. I know I need to go to the range with frequency as a new shooter and my wife definitely needs additional range time.
- Should I continue buying at these high prices to keep up my safety stock to be able to go to the range every couple months?
- How many JHP's should I keep as self defense ammo? I pray that I never have to shoot the JHP's for obvious reasons so do I need to keep more than the 50 I have now and just spend my money on range FMJ's?
- Should I have enough JHP's to keep all my spare magazines fully loaded or just my everyday carry spare mag?
