I have been trying not to "thread-jack' some of the topics, so I figured I would start a new one just for this. I can not see using ammunition as a barter item. Now, I realize that everyone will be trading/bartering mostly with people that they know. But, I have to ask how well do you really know a person? I am very laid back, easy going. You can get away with a lot with me. Unless/until it comes to my kids. Then I become fierce. There is NOTHING I would not do to protect, feed, provide for them. I think most of us here feel the same way. I can just assume that the majority of people feel that way about their own kids. I guess my concern is that if I feel like that and the majority of the people feel that way, do I want to give them ammunition? I can see that I would be providing a way for them to feed their families by giving them the ability to hunt. But I would also be giving them a way to come and take what they want from me. Maybe I am just being paranoid.
