    DHS Purchases 21.6 Million More Rounds of Ammunition

    Federal agency has now acquired enough bullets to wage 30 year war

    Paul Joseph Watson Infowars.com February 7, 2013

    The Department of Homeland Security is set to purchase a further 21.6 million rounds of ammunition to add to the 1.6 billion bullets it has already obtained over the course of the last 10 months alone, figures which have stoked concerns that the federal agency is preparing for civil unrest.

    1.6 Billion Rounds??????
    Have we spent this much in Afghanistan?
    Are the preparing for Civil war or trying to dry up the ammo supply so we cannot buy any? Something else.

    If you were not paranoid before, it might be time to be paranoid now.

    It looks like the miscalculated the quantities.

    Although the article is well taken regarding DHS stockpiling ammunition for domestic use, the information concerning the February 5 order appears to be misreported. The solicitiation is for a total of 240,000 rounds. The price is to be quoted per 1,000 rounds. The “MX” in the solicitation refers to a unit size of 1,000. Therefore, QTY of 100 units designated “MX” equals 100,000 rounds. Similarly, QTY of 40 units designated “MX” equals 40,000 rounds. See the description in the document that is hyperlinked in the second paragraph of the article.

    Accuracy is important whether the report emanates from a typewriter or the end of a barrel.

    GUN CONTROL AT IT FINEST!

    What better way to control guns then limiting the ammunition supply! Even better yet, they get everyone to pay for it with our own tax dollars! A WIN/WIN for the Socialist!

    Another benefit, we pay for own Serfdom!

    What would be nice is if all of the ammo manufacturers quit selling to the Gov't. Fulfill what contracts they have and then that's it, no more, nada. I know they still have places like Lake City, Salt Lake federal ammo plants but it would still put a dent in what they could get. And, it would free up more for the People. I think they should do the same thing with arms, quit selling to the gov't until this 2A stuff is settled. OMO.
    A free people ought not only to be armed and disciplined, but they should have sufficient arms and ammunition to maintain a status of independence from any who might attempt to abuse them, which would include their own government. --George Washington

    DHS Purchases 21.6 Million More Rounds of Ammunition

    Why do people wait till Obama gets reelected before they buy and stock up on ammo. It was essentially the same thing when he started his last term. Stock up when all is quiet not when dookie hits the fan with gun control and ammo supply

    I'd encourage folks to do two things here:

    1. Read the actual solicitation: https://marketplace.fedbid.com/fbweb...qQbJAAyVXBA0Or
    2. Not read anything Alex Jones / InfoWars puts out.

    Hint - if you do the first one, you'll find out that the order is not what InfoWars claims it to be.

    So, DHS needs another 22 million rounds on top of the 1.6 billion rounds it's alread procured.

    Just in round numbers, in 2004 there were 105,000 federal officers authorized to make arrests and carry firearms. So that comes to DHS having somewhere in the neighborhood of 16,000 rounds of ammo per officer on hand.

    I wonder how many rounds an "average" federal officer shoots in a year? I'm sure people like Border Patrol, ICE, Coast Guard and agents who are on the front lines shoot more than the armed pencil pusher types, but still... are they shooting 16,000 rounds per year? Are they all really shooting 1,300 rounds each and every month?

    You are correct. Infowars miscalculated the number of units.

    The solicitiation is for a total of 240,000 rounds. The price is to be quoted per 1,000 rounds. The “MX” in the solicitation refers to a unit size of 1,000. Therefore, QTY of 100 units designated “MX” equals 100,000 rounds. Similarly, QTY of 40 units designated “MX” equals 40,000 rounds.

    Ok so now we have verification that the info wars staff can't read. Or, they are deliberately misleading you. Take your pick.

    That solicitation is NOT for 21.6 million rounds of ammo. It is for 240,000 rounds of ammo.
    100k rounds of .40.
    100k rounds of 9mm hp.
    40k rounds of 9mm ball.

    They are asking for price per thousand on one hundred units of .40, one hundred units of 9 hp, and forty units of 9 ball.

    ETA: Also if you look at the actual procurement documents you will see that info wars numbers on most of the ammo purchases are inflated. What they cite are the maximum number rounds guaranteed by the bid. The vendor is promising a price per thousand for as many as (for example) 450k rounds. The actual guaranteed purchase is only 10k rounds.

    But that isn't exciting enough for info wars.

    But 240,000 rounds isn't a big, scary order. You can't send people into a panic with those kinds of numbers....

    LOL

    But using the numbers Bark'n was kind enough to provide that is less than 240 rounds per federal agent authorized to carry! Is that enough to train, practice, and qualify with? I don't think so. Maybe we should be scared that DHS is not buying enough ammo!
