How does everyone allocate their shooting money between ammo, guns, and accessories?

Do you just buy whatever you find a good deal on or do you try to spend fixxed percentages on each category; say 25% ammo, 50% to new guns and 25% to accessories?

i am pretty set on guns and the majority of the gear that i need, so most if not all of my normal budget goes to ammo, targets, and training. when i come into a large sum of money, like tax returns, deployment money etc, then that is when i do my gun buying. but the last time i had a large amount of money it went to buying all ammo.

i don't buy new guns, but if i do see a GREAT deal (i can find a good deal at wal-mart), i'll jump on it.

No rhyme or reason to my gun and ammo buying. I will pick up ammo when I see a good deal, guns I buy when I decide I want something new.
Mostly I just do what the voices in my head tell me! :what:

I try to save up so I'm free to buy when I see a good deal.

My budget is whatever I can get away with before the family accountant catches me. When my toy fund is depleted, I have to get creative.;)

No fixed amount, whatever I can afford for ammo first then save up for big stuff like a new gun.

I've been spending much more money on ammo and components lately.

Allocate? Budget? :what: I was wondering where all my grocery money went.

I don't buy new guns. I watch for used ones that I like or can rebarrel or modify. I also don't buy ammo and when I buy bullets ,powder, primers etc., I do it in as large a quantity as I can. I never buy fewer than 10,000 primers at a time, powder is at least 32# at a time.
