How Much Ammo Do You Need in the Event of a Social Collapse?

How Much Ammo Do You Need in the Event of a Social Collapse?

Do you have enough ammunition to protect your property and family in the event of a social collapse?

One of the most commonly asked questions when people begin their journey down the road of preparedness is how much ammo is enough? Do we really need a weapons cache with enough ammunition for the next few lifetimes in our basements, or is a few extra boxes for each gun all you need?

Before I get into details, I want everyone to throw out the ideas of small disruptions that can be fixed within short periods of months to a year. I am talking about an all-out collapse where everything as we know it is gone and isn’t coming back. A zombies are walking the streets, cities are burning, and the raiders from Mad Max are patrolling the highways kind of scenario.

Now that we are all on the same page as to what we are dealing with, we need to be realistic.

If you live in a secluded area, like on a homestead, where you can grow food, get water from a well, and have the comfort of low population around you, then you are in a situation that allows mass storage of ammunition. That is something you are going to probably stay at for long time and defend to the death.

Unfortunately for about 80 percent of us, that is not the case. We live in the suburbs next to largely populated areas and will only be able to stay put for so long. At some point, we are going to have to set out on for new places to avoid conflicts, scavenge new resources, and more.
