Just doing some light reading the other day, and one particular phrase caught my attention:
Before a resistance organization can successfully engage in combat activities, its leadership must organize an infrastructure that can sustain itself in combat and withstand the anticipated hostile reaction to armed resistance. - FM 3-18 Special Forces Operations
In other words, amateurs talk tactics, professionals talk logistics.
Ponder the import of the above sentence in light of whatever long-term preparations you are undertaking, or contemplating.
Think of it as just another way of noting: You don't have enough ammo.
Or, probably, enough of anything else.
