Talking last evening with a friend after we finished playing a game the subject turned to weapons as it usually does with him. As we talk I sense that they are new to him but he has had some for many years and unlike me he even has a CCW. We talked about the ammo shortfall. As I was sitting here reading late into the night it struck me:
From wikipedia and ancient school instruction, "In Roman mythology , Lares and Penates were groups of deities, or gods, who protected the family and the Roman state. Although different in origin and purpose, the Lares and Penates were often worshipped together at household shrines."
In short, they were the ammo of the ancient world.
