I had someone on another forum (or maybe it was here) asking a similar question, but put differently.. How much ammo would you expend if you were in a SHTF situation, and hold up in your attic... I got to thinking... You're not gonna be able to reload mags in a panic emergency situation... So if you think of it that way, say you're hold up in your attic, and have a mini 14, and two 20 round magazines, a shotgun loaded with 5 rounds, and a handgun with say 30 rounds in 2 mags...

That is your contingency... Once someone comes up the stairs and you start blasting, once you're out, you're not reloading those mags... You've either stopped the threat, or your dead.

So how many mags do you need?

I have about 10 for my Mini 14- thats 200 rounds at the ready (assuming i can get to it). Handguns, 4-5 mags each. IF i fealt a threat was imminent, I would load all my mags for all my guns, load all my shotguns, all my lever guns, and it would be a lot of shooting before I was out if I shot all my ammo in all my guns... Not practical, but if I had to retreat to my attic, with all my guns loaded, there would have to be a large threat coming up those stairs. after the first few fell on the stairs, they'd have to pull bodies out to keep coming - I have a narrow stairwell. Course they could just burn the house down I guess... that would be a last resort- Guess I need a rescue ladder in my attic -
