It's National Ammo Day.

Go out & buy 100 rounds of ammo, or components to load 100 rounds. Then go wish Kim du Toit a happy b-day.

Here's a well kept secret: many people know Mr. du Toit started National Ammo Day but few know why. Ya see, he was feeling guilty about the amount of ammo he purchased (enough to hold off a few regiments for about a week provided the barrels didn't melt) so he started this National Ammo Day thing to keep from looking like the ammo aficionado that he is. Yep - he just wants you to appear to be as avid a gun nut as he is. He figures if a bunch of people are buying 100 rounds on the same day then he won't feel so odd about having to beef up the suspension in his truck to handle his weekly ration of rinfire ammo. < /good natured almost humorous jest >

Go buy some ammo. Then shoot it & go buy some more. Don't let Mr. du Toit have all the fun.

I sympathize.

My mother wanted to know why I wasn't going to let any of our family members, visiting for Thanksgiving, check out my new apartment.

When I told her there was a pellet gun range and about 9,000 rounds of ammunition, she didn't have anything to say.
