Gunmeister extraordinaire Jerry Miculek says he had a problem, one with which which we’re not familiar – too much ammo. We’re not even sure what that would look like. But you have to hand it to him…he came up with an innovative way of alleviating the overage. He turned a scary black rifle in to a hand-held gatling gun. If you ever found yourself in the same pickle with too much gun food, how would you get rid of it all?

58 Responses to Question of the Day: How Do You Get Rid of Your Excess Ammo?

  1. You’ve got to be kidding. “Too much ammo” is a terrible oxymoron. To quote some friends here: Unpossible. 🙂

    But if anyone actually believed he/she had “too much,” they could always give it to me. ^-^

    • Jerry always has a tongue in cheek humor bend to frame his videos. Sad to see so many miss the wink and instead chase the ball down the rat hole.

      So when you’re done kicking the dead gift horse in the mouth, please discuss the crank thing.

      Carry on.

    • If you understand Southern sarcasm Jerry is hilarious. This guy is too much fun.

      Funny how they poked fun of his mispronounciation of turret.

  2. I’ve got too much .22lr, and .22 mag ammo. So I volunteered to go shoot a bunch of Beldings ground squirrels, AKA sage rats.
    We should blow off 500-1,000 rounds per day. “For the Farmers”

    • Sir, there are starving children who NEED that .22 ammunition to learn how to use their Firearm, who are still living with the Great Rimfire Famine. With your support, for just a few rounds a day, you could make a difference in their life.

  3. I need one of those now. …I also need a rifle to put it on. …And a range that will let me actually use it.

    Dammit.

    • I threw a couple of .22 blanks in my dad’s open woodstove as a kid. Thought it would be fun. I hadn’t factored in flying hot coals. The result was burn marks on the carpet and the couch on the other side of the room. Followed by burn marks on my backside from dad’s belt.

      • Oh my, your father actually struck you. Have you seen a counsler social service physoctherapist, you may be emotionally scarred and not even know it. NOT, when I was a kid we got a tanning, then went n did chores. Frrkn social service nazi’s

        • Denis Leary once said “crying and mowing the lawn is good therapy”.

          Too much ammo?? That’s a pickle I’ve never tasted…

        • Yeah, that belt was like our dad’s version of the nuclear option. It rarely had to be used, because once you had experienced your first Hiroshima, the deterrent value lasted a long, long time. We all turned out fine.

  4. It’s a logistical question. Like too much meat. After a too successful hunting season, you need a lot of freezer volume. So, you share some with friends when you can’t afford or fit another deep freezer. If i couldn’t fit all of my ammo, some would be in mom’s spare closet or at my brother’s house. If I could afford too much ammo, maybe I could afford to keep it in climate controlled storage at a monthly cost similar to a cable bill. Not sure that too much ammo is as hard to solve as too much venison or too much redfish.

  5. Aaaaaannd cue the “we must ban the trigger thing that goes around” line from Diane Feinstein, et al.

    • History repeats! The Matty Mattel Thunderburp Tommy Gun had a hand crank before they came up with a cocking knob that gave a rattling burst.

      Slide-fire stock would work better for full auto fire, IMO.

      Anyway, too much ammo? No such animal.

    • We already did in Minnesota many years ago. There was a similar device made; banned before it saw the light of day.

  6. I don’t have too much ammo. My closet will hold umteen thousand rounds and I’m no where near that but I also practice several times a week.

  7. Isn’t there a country song along the lines of “I Ain’t Never Had too Much Fun”?

    I actually have some ammo stored in a climate controlled readily accessible offsite location. It avoids inconvenient questions from the Mistress of Doom, such as “Whatinhell are you doing with all that ammunition?”

    For some reason, she thinks the 5-10K I keep around the house is a lot. . .go figure, right?

    • “Isn’t there a country song along the lines of “I Ain’t Never Had too Much Fun”?”

      You beat me to it.

      A girl too pretty? A car too fast?

      Too much ammo?

      No offense, but if I ever have that problem, I doubt I’d tell you (or anyone else) about it…

    • I had a little too much fun one night. I don’t really remember much but I came to about 7 in the morning with a traffic cone on my head and missing a shoe.

  8. What the hell is “excess anmo”? That’s equivalent to saying I have to many beautiful, busty women in my life that all want me. I really am not seeing a problem here.

    🙂

  9. I’ll let you know what I do with “too much” ammo if that ever happens In the meantime, if I won’t have opportunity to use it, as in dead. My gun loving relatives will get it and have enough to hand down to their grandchildren.

  10. No such thing as having too much ammo. The Dan must be on something. I have a similar gizmo on my Ruger PC40 but no place that will let me try it indoors.

  11. If you made the spindle handle an actual grip for the hand in the horizontal plane, you would have a viable support. Maybe have a pressure switch installed on it to prevent accidental rotation without being purposely pressed. Otherwise it’s amazingly viable.

    You know what else would help fund your channel? Selling those damn things.

    And I’m pretty sure the entire too much ammo thing was a joke. I don’t think he’d have to hire anybody to help him dispose of it 😉

  12. You may as well ask “How do you get rid of your excess dollars?”.

    As long as you rotate your stock by regularly practicing with your oldest ammo, there is really no reason to fret about excess ammo around the house. Unless maybe you have the wrong kind of wife. In which case we can talk about excess wives and how to get rid of them.

  13. I get rid of my “excess” ammo in precisely the same way that I get rid of my “excess” money. I shoot ’em up.

  14. it is impossible to have too much ammo.
    If you want to shoot a lot of ammo, the slide fire is the way to go.
    You can actually take careful aim while you hose down multiple targets at the berm
    The slidefire works a thousand times better than that “gat”

  15. From the alter of well aimed sustained fire, I find this demonstration by a gun disciple, on principle an abomination…there are no democrats absorbing lead contamination of the environment.

    The Horror.

  16. So, what does the ATF say happens if he fits a high-RPM electric motor to that thing? Asking for a friend.

  17. Funny thing about that video…
    The shot timer says it shoots 681 rounds per minute, which is slower than Jerry usually shoots with a regular trigger.

    • Yeah. I didn’t recognize his mustache in the opening screen grab, but once I saw it was Mr. Miculek I spent the rest of the video shaking my head.

  18. I know some serious shotgun competitors who order ammo by the ton . That’s excess for me as I don’t have the space to store it

    Excess venison is why I have two more freezers in the garage and friends

  19. A bumpfire stock will get you the limit of your rifle plus be able to aim it.
    Got 800RPM on my second dump.

    • Are YOU going to tell him that?

      *chortle*

      That’s like:

      Tugging on Superman’s cape,

      Spitti’n in the wind,

      Pulling the mask of the ‘ole Lone Ranger…

      • “Find out where it’s at

        And it’s not hustlin’ people strange to you

        Even if you do got a two-piece custom-made key-mod Magpul uplula….”

        I miss the ’70’s great singer/songwriters.

  20. JM ought to be on Stan Lee’s Super Human show.
    Now the real question is, is it sponsored ammo accumulating or personal ammo?
    Either way, I suspect I would have to go the charitable route and sponsor a Shooting Shindig ala Texas Gun Fest.

  21. I never have too much ammunition, but I do have enough empty cases to reload that I probably will never have to buy another box of factory ammunition for the rest of my life.

  22. Jerrys to cool, in one segment, he painted the tips of bullets green and called them ap rounds. Guns can be fun, they need not be evil weapons of destruction

  23. isn’t this a old school device?? Like back of Solider of Fortune mag mid 80’s ? Anyway, a 9volt, a spst button,some wire and a small electric motor with a cam on it. add bluetooth and an I phone app for 2016 and Brrrraaappppp! Just a fun thought. I want a slidefire sig brace.

  24. What do you mean “excess” ammo? There is but one kind of ammo: Ammo I haven’t gotten around to shooting yet/

  25. That device seems like a fun toy but not really useful.

    I’m guessing it costs a lot less than a slidefire stock though.
