people are too cheap for silencer, softpoints

but CLAIM they have the $1000 to spend on 5000 rds of rifle ammo. :-) SURE you do. Without the silencer, .22 conversion unit, subsonic ammo, luminous sights, nvd's, soft armor and enough sense to stay underground during daylight hours, you won[t survive needing to fire the first 50 rds.

crying about how ball aint good enough. you can have 60 gr sp's for twice the money, so instead of 5000 rds, have 2500 rds that are waf, and you'll be way ahead. Have a silencer, etc, and you wont need more than 200 rds of the softpoints, either. Cause if you have sense, most of your "fighting" will be done with BB gun quiet subsonic 22's to the head, sub 50 yds, from cover/ambush, and holding the bolt shut with your non-firing hand.. If you do that, you'll hear the "plock!" of the bullet hitting his skull, and his gear and him falling will make more noise than your shot.

Again, not all the ammo that most of load and/or shoot, is about combat or shtf. Not even a small percentage of it really; certainly not 'most' or 'all'. I shoot somewhere around 8-12 thousand rounds a year, mostly 9mm, .223, and 22LR; and about the only things I kill any more are the painted finishes on hanging steel plates.

And "crying about how ball ain't good enough"..? Really? You are the one who has started multiple threads about how ball ammo is inadequate in a 1911; nobody else here that I recall has said anything negative lately about fmj ammo in any caliber.

I would be surprised if most poster's here DON'T have a $1000.00 plus of ammunition. Way beyond your mean's of course, Melvin. Even if it were legal.
