Same answer as kraigwy. My SD ammo does not stay in the gun for more than 2 weeks at a time, even in the winter. I will shoot it up and maybe 10-20 rounds more then the gun gets cleaned loaded and put back till the next time. I use other ammo for competition plinking and heavy duty practice but my SD ammo gets shot regularly so I know exactly where it's going to go. I don't want any surprises at dark thirty when a thump in the dark turns into a boogerman. With a little luck it will all eventually get used for target practice with nary a boogerman in sight but bad things happen and there is no rule saying it cannot happen at your house, your neighbors house, or my house.
Good intentions will always be pleaded for any assumption of power. The Constitution was made to guard the people against the dangers of good intentions. There are men in all ages who mean to govern will, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters.
