question to the gun enthusiasts here

Anybody got some leads on some ammo in the U.S. that's not too expensive?

US never ceases to amaze:

Scattered around the country are members of a small fraternity of guys who own tanks. They are hyper-avid history buffs or hyper-edgy investors or just wealthy men who can now afford hyper-sized versions of the toys they played with when they were boys. Tank brokers—yes, there is such a thing—estimate there are several hundred to 1,000 private tank owners in the U.S.

http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424127887324432004578302480951570270.html

A tank in the U.S. can have operational guns, if the owner has a federal Destructive Device permit, and state laws don't prohibit it. The permit costs $200, and the applicant must swear he hasn't been a "fugitive from justice," "adjudicated mentally defective" or convicted of "a misdemeanor crime of domestic violence." A local law-enforcement official, usually a sheriff or police chief, has to sign off on the application.

You can own Tanks in Germany too, but the Guns are made dysfunctional and there's a big chunk of armor cut out in front of the drivers seat so Amok drivers can be stopped without the use of AT weapons. Although there never was such an incident here.

There's even one Tank with an legal license plate in Berlin IIRC. How that occurred is lost in history but the officials can't revoke the license so the actual owner could legally drive around on the streets. He uses it for Advertising his company.

Great story, thankfully there not real ( he's not arming the local delinquents) , just models, fakes. There's a big difference between them and one that you can get in and actually fire the gun. They look real though.

Nice. So, the demand for personal armoured vehicles is strong worldwide, but still, it is not everywhere you can get a tank with operational guns. Makes me wonder, if it is actually permitted to fire them — the article did not elaborate.

Like with most things...the hard part may not be getting the gun
or tank. The hard part is getting the ammo to actually use in it.
