Anyone know how much money they spent in 2009 on ammo?

Are there any really anal people on here who keep track of how much money they spend on ammo? Anyone with a ballpark figure? A buddy of mine with 25+ guns said he is nearly sure he dropped over 5k on ammo in 2009. That's a nice kick to the groin!

I was still running off the case of 9mm I bought last year so I grabbed around 7 boxes of .40(gave 4 of the 7 to a friend in NY) and another 100 JHP pack and maybe $25 worth of .22 ammo thats about it. and I have more left for this year also. hopefully I can buy another case .

Not much because I refused to buy overpriced ammo. Probably no more than $300 on 9mm and 22lr

+1.

I only bought a little ammo in '09. Mainly bought .22LR.

I reload so I do not need any blastin' aammo.

Also hard to buy primers at $50/box when I have 20,000 that I paid $20/box for. I did buy 2,000 SRM primers that I found for 28.99/box and another 2,000 SP that I found for $31.00/box.

I did buy 12ga BS at WalMart but it was about the same price as it was 2 years ago.

I didn't keep track. It scares me. Your post is making me think about it though.
If I didn't buy ammo I could certainly afford the top of the line 1911's several times.
Unfortunately I like to shoot guns... a lot.

Not very much during the Obama-inspired ammo rush.

Two, three years prior to that...alot.

Amen bro.
But I didn't spend enough. Cause I have money in my pocket and still can't find the ammo to buy!
Sure I can, have and will buy on the web but I don't have THAT many $ left over. (And she sees that!)

hst 100rds = 65 or so
georgia canned heat = 150 or so
georgia gd = 25
700 rds 7.62x39 = 200

total = somewhere around 440

I still have some of the canned heat and 80 or so rds of the hsts so.

I guess it shows me I didnt get to the range enough cause I only used around 700 rds of 7.62x39. I defintely need to get to the range more with my 40. I figure I average about a 100 rds thru the 40 and 100 rds thru the 7.62x39 per range visit. Maybe a range visit every other month = 600 rds of 7.62x39 per year = 168 per year and 40sw 600rds = 180. Total target ammo would be 348. If I went 1x per month it would prolly not be nice economically as I currently only make 50k a year and am the sole provider for family of 4... WHAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHH

Let me see... I bought lots of .22 LR because I really enjoy shooting .22 LR and I really enjoy watching my children shoot .22 LR rifles and pistols. I bought a G-22 for SD/HD and ended up buying lots of .40 S&W ammo with which to confirm the functional reliability of the G-22 as well as build familiarity and expertise in using it. I bought a S&W 625-2 which necessitated the purchase of .45 ACP ammo so that the 625 would not be a safe-queen. I bought a Springfield Mil-Spec 1911 in (surprise) .45 ACP so I bought more .45 ACP ammo so that I could enjoy shooting the 1911. I also bought .30 bullets for my rifles so that I could load ammo for local vintage military rifle matches. So... this past year... I guess I spent some money on ammo. And, in just a few more weeks, I will be buying a little M-2 ball as I want to make sure that there is sufficient ammunition for my use in my M-1's. Sincerely. Brucev.
