    Its neat to see the wide variety of .22 ammo, but sad too. All those companies existed because millions of people around the world loved shooting and that pleasure has been taken from us with the exception of a few hold out countries.

    So far so good, the ones I shot all went bang

    LGS gifted me a few boxes of old ammo, 9mm, .32 ACP, .25 ACP and .22 short





    Then I bought this typically Swiss curiosity, a can of GP11 “Taschenmunition”, or pocket ammunition. As you may know, the Swiss militia soldiers kept their rifles at home, and were therefore given a sealed can of 24 rounds, to be only used in case of mobilisation and in order to reach a meeting point.









    Precisely this reads :

    Guidelines for pocket ammunition
    This pocket ammunition is intended exclusively for personal protection during active duty, especially before reaching the designated duty station.
    The pocket ammunition is to be presented at each service and during communal inspections.
    Anyone who opens the box improperly or misuses the ammunition will be punished in accordance with the order concerning ammunition.

    NICE! Im a HUGE fan of old ammo boxes, ads, and things like you just posted, sir. Very cool pics.
    Did each household only get ONE can of 24 rounds?

    Yes, each soldier only received one can. Again, the idea was not to go fighting on the front with it, but just rejoin your unit where you would get your orders, supplies etc.

    The gentleman who sold me the Rem 700 VTR also had a case of Swiss GP90 (5.56 NATO) for a reasonable price ($350.-)







    He was also kind to gift me 260 rds of Barnaul .223



    And I bought some 9mm subsonic and .30M1 ammo from two different private sellers

    I’d like to see a pic of the bunker where you have 8 trillion rounds of ammo. And 40,000 collector guns. Well Done Big O.

    Good ammo is the ammo you have in-hand!

    Some of these fotos reminds me of two boxes of ammo I got from my grandparents. One is a box of West German made Federal .25 acp, and the other is a box of Remington 158 gr LRN .38 spl, which was bought at a truck stop at the price of just over five dollars. The .25 auto works just fine. I used it to test out the old pocket auto. The .38 spl looks perfect, but I have never touched it, and have no plans on doing so. I am keeping the boxes also, which both boxes sit in my safe.
