    All the ammo in the world wont do them much good if the agents dont use it for fear of prosecution.

    If everything goes well, the civilian market will see some of this HST ammo hit the market.

    No, if everything went well, there would not be any rounds left to sell off. At least not enough to matter at any rate.

    I'm not implying the ammunition is not needed, I'm just hoping the actual quantity bought is not too high. However, that is a maximum purchase number. I'm guessing the total baought will be far less.

    Maybe this is a front for Eric Holder is now looking to provide ammo for the guns he ran across the border...

    Oops, Sorry Mods if that is too inflammatory or political. I just can't help myself!

    Most of these rounds (probably was less than 450 million) will go for practice which is as it should be. Government buying is so cumbersome that this contract was probably for the most round DHS would need forever.

    I wish there was an option to get tax refunds in ammo.

    I am sure this is what they go through in a year! THink about it they have like 237K employees, if even 1/3 of those carry a gun that is a lot of ammo every year!
