I'm curious about this myself - possessing ammo with no gun would be akin to having a magazine (empty or not) with no gun.
When I got the "pistol or rifle" question, I didn't answer - handed clerk my ID and said "whatever strikes my fancy." Strangely enough, he still pushed the question and there was a prompt on the screen that indicated he had to enter one or the other for the sale to go through.
Never did answer, and no idea which he picked for me. Wasn't trying to be difficult, but as I am of age - I don't see what difference it makes what I use it for, to heck with their "recordkeeping" policies.
