    glad I sold my last .40 cal a couple of months ago. I expect a huge price increase in .40 s&w in the coming months due to government hoarding

    While they may secure our boarders, I don't expect to see them do much about our borders any time soon.

    Let me guess, these idiots running the government think the "deal" they got in negotiations @ .75 cents a round was great...

    The gov't finally took my advice and printed up more borrowed fake money to invest in durable assets. Don't worry about the $.75/round. That will seem like a bargain soon.

    Thanks for the heads up! You're right! I just saw the article and both Dept of Homeland security and ICE are looking at .40 cal HST and .223 cal for rifles. I shoot 9mm HST's when I can get them but if production in going to the .40, I may have to look at something else due to future slow delivery and higher prices. Hopefully, I'll run across some today at the gun show. Hmmm ... wonder what the IRS will be using.

    One guess where it's headed (and I don't mean the NC/SC border):

    Maybe they ordered them for holder after all if you are going to allow guns to walk you need the ammo to go with them.

    Another move by the government to push prices higher, and make ammo less affordable for the people of this country. Wonder what they are really up to?

    I think DHS is procurring for all the alphabets and the soon to be staffed Civilian Defense Corps. I wouldn't be surprised if the FEMA camp armories will hold their stash.

    Isn't that what makes ammo cheaper?

    Isn't that why 9mm is cheaper - because they're making so much of it bringing the price down?
