    Sounds like a good idea to me. We have a tyrannical out of control government that needs reigning in.

    Hopefully this will help with the ammo shortage and let me get to a range for more than ten minutes.

    Political grand standing. It has not even been shown they are stockpiling anything. The 'outrage' is over the listed max amount of a 5 year contract coupled with a little bad math. The ammo is still ordered in batches as needed over the course of the contract at the set price which is valid until the max amount is reached if at all or the contract term expires.

    People act like they placed an order for the full amount at once and that's why they can't get ammo. BS...you can get ammo because of your fellow gun owners, many of whom are buying to resale.

    This is NOTHING compared to the guys buying ammo by the 10,000. And there are LOTS of them.
    Freakin ridiculous. "The govt is out to take all our bullets." No, it's your freaking neighbor who bought 5,000 rounds of ammo and he doesn't even shoot. That's where your bullets went.
    When hundreds of thousands of americans stop buying by the case, the ammo shortage will end.

    Stupid law. The Feds should keep a 1 year supply on hand ALWAYS. This means having 1.5 to 2 years on hand some of the time.

    Would you support this law when Ronald Regan was President?

    Go for it. Maybe more bills like this will distract them from the really annoying ones...like the one that's going to pass the Senate in a few days regarding placing sales tax on online purchases.

    I'll support pretty much any law that takes power away from the federal government.

    I wish I had bought 10k rds few yrs back (when it was cheap) Most i recall ever buying is 1k rds at once.
    I know of no requirement that I must shoot it within a month, year, decade.
    I bought 500 rds of 9mm STHP decade ago. Still carry it. Shoot a few every time I practice (mainly shoot fmj)

    And some news reports are making it a big deal that DHS is spending 1,000 rounds more per agent per year compared to DoD per soldier.

    Well, this turns out to 1,300 rounds per agent per year. As far as I am concerned, that is the MINIMUM, an armed LEO should shoot per year to keep up with their skills. That's barely 100 rounds per month!! DHS should buy more!!

    I also find it scary that our soldiers are only shooting 300 rounds per year.

    Political BS and nothing else. They locked in a price. I wonder how much more the taxpayer will have to pay if they purchases year by year. They're still going to buy the ammo and it will cost us more.

    DHS has approximately 70,000 agents. How does the math work out on all of this?
