Around the time of Fallout 3 and New Vegas, over 200 years since the war, would there be enough ammunition left for guns to exist in the way they do in Fallout? I don't know exactly how many bullets and guns there are in the USA, but at the rate we see lead flying, it seems like kind of a stretch to me that there's enough firepower around after two centuries for guns to be the go-to weapons for wastelanders. I can definitely believe that guns would still be around, I mean, it's 'Murica we're talking about. But I think it'd make a little more sense if only the richest people, or factions with access to bullet factories had what other wasters might see as magic (dare I say) "boomsticks?" But hey, maybe I'm wrong. If anyone knows something I may have forgot, or a reason that it's entirely possible that there'd be enough bullets left after all that time, please let me know! I'm interested to hear people's thoughts.
