    That is a grand total 600 cartridges a year per employee! OMG!

    Only 600 per year per employee? Obviously I'd have to be supplementing my practice ammo with personal funds if I was a DHS worker...

    Yes, I could only train 6 students a year! or for CCW qualifications that is 20 students! DHS personnel must do a lot of dry firing!

    But that is seven hundred million rounds out of about thirty seven billion rounds expected to be domestically produced!
    If they buy all of them that would be one point eight percent of domestic production! How will we ever find anything to shoot?

    “Department of Homeland Security Ammunition Contracts, as of October 1, 2013,” it states that “the 29 existing DHS ammunition contracts extend over the next 4 fiscal years and have a remaining contract limit of approximately 704 million rounds
    That means they are first in line to buy those rounds not that they are actually going to purchase them. Just more conspiracy nonsense from people that don't understand the government procurement procedures.

    whats the big deal... so they want their officers to practice more? Thats just 50 rounds per month per person for target practice.

    Maybe we need to get a job with DHS so we can use the ammo we pay for to practice too
