I'm kinda torn on the ammo thing. I think I'd be hesitant to trade ammo to someone who wasn't family for fear they might use it against me. Maybe some 22 rimfire, but I don't think I'd give'em anything bigger. And yes I'm aware that even 22 is quite deadly, but I think a person would be less likely to try something if that's all they're armed with. I know I'd be hesitant to try something with a 22 knowing if I didn't achieve an instant kill, it would be answered by a 357. I don't really know where I stand on this..... guess I'd have to make that judgement call based on the person.
