The outrageous and unexplainable purchase of now 1.6 BILLION bullets by the Feds can be summed up in the following sentence.
the DHS has purchased enough bullets over the last 10 months to wage a full scale war for almost 30 years.
That from the news that feds have ordered yet another round of ammo, this time 21.6 million rounds of hollow point .40 and .9 ammo. The FedBid document has the order details. The document reads to suggest the ammo is heading to a training facility in New Mexico. Perhaps this is indeed the final destination for the ammo. But why would the feds train with more expensive hollow point ammo? And 21.6 million rounds?
Last weekend I fired about 250 rounds of .40 at a range here in Virginia. This over a period of two hours. If my math is correct (and it may not be thanks to public education), it would take me eight hours a day, firing 1,000 rounds a day, for approximately 59 years, to fire that much ammo. And that’s just a single order for the fed.
Where are our representatives on this? What is going on with all of this ammo hoarding?
