While looking at an apartment for my daughter, I ran across this in the
basement of a rental property. It apparently belongs to the upstairs tenant.
It is my understanding that these 2 items are not supposed to be mixed. ;-)

But seriously, 2 questions:
1 - Is it legal for a private citizen to possess that much ammo in a
2 - What would happen if there was a fire in that basement?
It's my understanding that the tenant used to be a board member at a Trap/
Skeet/Clay Shooting club that folded. Apparently that is all of the ammo
that was left over. There was also a workbench set up with gun cleaning
equipment, so he must still be active to some extent.
My initial reaction is that it looked a bit like the trunk of my car
when I last went to hunting camp.
The ammo is safe to possess and store and in a fire will add fuel to the
fire and pop but not with enough force to kill you.
I know shooting components like primers can only be stored with maybe
5,000 in one place and there are probably similar storage requirements
for powder. You can buy ammunition through regular mail but primers and
power are limited to ground shipment and there is a HAZMAT fee.

When I was the president of the IBM skeet league, I was buying shotgun
shells by the pallet. I am sure I had more ammo than that in my garage
from time to time. It was "sprinklered" tho. There may be a rule for
multifamily dwellings but it is going to be a state law.
The ammo would heat up and propel the bullets a short distance at low speed
and pressure. In firearms ammo is meant to be chambered. Beer bottles would
create shrapnel and be undrinkable to first responders.
Shotgun shells do less than that. The sidewall just blows out and the
shot will not even break the crimp. I would be more worried about a
jerry can of gas in the garage and a propane cylinder irs a real

The problem with CO2 is the vapor pressure is 25 times that of butane
and 150 times that of freon. It would take a very substantial can to
hold liquid CO2 and if it is not liquid, you might as well use air.
You are not going to propel much product with a gas.
