Possibly....on the dry up theory, but it seems to only be in .40 cal. I know that's the popular round right now, but 9mm, .45, .223, and 12 guage
would probably be just as important to go after if you were trying to do that. 9mm, and .223 seem pretty plentyful right now, especially compared to
what they were about 5-6 years ago.
This whole thing is getting weird....
The original 450 million rounds for DHS i could buy as being for training, and maybe as a future hedge against metal price increases, especially
Now an additional 750 million...well, ok maybe, but that's 1.2 billion??? I don't know, but other than Secret Service and some Coast Guard I can't see
any armed people under DHS needing to do more than qualify on a box of 50 once or twice a year. (SS are some of the best pistol shooters out there,
they probably practice once a week, but that would probably be the exception, FBI belongs to Justice so I don't think they factor in. ).
But now the weather service?!?!?!?!?!
I mean other than pilots survivial kits what's the point. Does NOAA have some sort of law enforcement (they might, they deal with fisheries and stuff
to a degree)??
Maybe they are planning to give each government agency an armed response unit. After all, if there is an economic collapse, people may go after any
local branch of the Fed Gov they can find. I beleive there was an order from the Department of Education about a year ago for several 12.Guage
It was for their Inspector General Dept....but I don't know many IG departments that are armed. Usually if they find something fraudulant, you contact
the your local or federal law enforcement. Seems a little weird that virtually EVERY government dept now has or feels they need an armed law
