    Any agent worth their salt will purchase their own ammo to stay proficient.

    Although, this likely is yet another example of the administration creating chaos in order to blame the sequester.

    That is your fed goverment. Can't supply ammo where it is needed but DHS can hoard it. I'm sorry but this is all about politics. Your president wants "undocumented democrats" to cross the boarder so they can give them free stuff with your money.

    The more I think about this, the angrier that I get.

    What greater threat to our national security than to continue to undermine our border security? Somebody please convince me that Al-Qaeda can't easily come across the Mexican border?

    I believe that something very bad is going to happen within the next few years.

    When something as unspecific as that happens are you going to say, "I told you so"?

    I can't wait to see how accurate your prediction is.

    My best friend is currently in their academy. Luckily he is getting more than enough trigger time, but when he graduates, I'll send him what I can find, even if he IS shooting an HK.

    If you do not have extra ammo to bring, you will be given extra time to clean and maintain your issued handgun as well as station long arms.

    So if you don't show up with extra ammo you will be stuck cleaning the shotguns and M4s.

    There are two separate issues here. Ammo availability is a nuisance right now. Via internet orders I can still lay hands on whatever I need, but just not at the same price that I used to. I haven't carried a gun for a living in close to 30 years now, and I've never run out of ammo. Good cops will stay trained and armed, regardless.

    The real issue here is that the administration continues to undermine our national security for the sake of politics, and leaving these officers to fend for themselves. Unacceptable.

    This has been going on for several years. The mismanegnement of the agency has caused these budgetary problems in every facet. The BP is not short of ammo nationally it is usually a regonal issue. FYI the Border Patrol is DHS, it is the agency in DHS that uses the most ammo.

    It is against policy to use anything but issue ammo in service weapons, under DHS knowingly violating policy can get you fired.

    I retired 1 1/2 years ago and keep hearing horror stories from those on the inside.

    This is just another attempt by the Feds to make the sequestor as politcally painful as possbile.
