Too Much Ammo

Bill Wilson from Wilson Combat sent this quote over too us. Wilson says he found it on one of the survival forums:

“There are only two times when there is such a thing as too much ammo. One is when you are swimming, the other is if you are on fire.”

I would submit that “too much ammo” might be a hindrance if a pride of man eating lions were on your heels. Of course, if you can shoot fast and accurately, and have a repeater, too much ammo might be just the thing.

    too funny, that’s my line from 10 years ago. I stole it from the pilot’s dictum, “The only time you have too much fuel is when you’re on fire.” Another member made it his sig line and I’ve run across it around the net ever since.

    Silliness. Slow day?

    My father, who basically walked from Cherbourg to Czechoslovakia with the 87th Infantry during WWII, said the only time there was too much ammo was when you had to carry it. He also said the decimal point in the 10.7 pound weight of his rifle disappeared after walking 5 miles.
