    As someone else pointed out. They are probably spreading the purchases around to avoid placing the order for 2 Billion rounds and attracting attention. Unfortunately for them, it's not working. . .

    The people that run InfoWars are certifiable nut hut material.

    174000 rounds would be enough to qualify about 180 agents yearly at my agency (250 rds per agent 4 times per year).

    Not sure how big SSA OIG is but I know they have at least a few hundred agents, based on my conversations with the handful of instructors I went through a FLETC course with last spring. .

    Glad to see some logic being brought to the table.

    You mean maybe all there is to this is just guys qualifying in some slightly less well known federal law enforcement agencies like the National Marine Fisheries Service? Western civilization as we know it is not on the brink of total collapse??

    :rofl:



    Reading such editorial reporting containing "interpretations" of common procurement activities, and the descriptions used therein, reminds me of the poorest quality fiction that used to be sold under the heading of "Men's Action Adventure" in bookstores ... :whistling:

    Missed seeing the online coupon for discounts toward bulk purchases of foil hats (but then I seldom can make it through such "articles"). :upeyes:

    So - one person says the source is a nut case. That means the news report is false???

    I think the real story behind all of these ammo purchases is how many unknown LE agencies the government have.

    Looks to me like the government is gearing up for a war (civil unrest). Standard Big Brother actions, arm the government while attempting to disarm civilians.

    For training, 174 cases of ammo would not last long at all.

    :cool:

    I'd not describe them as being "unknown". Just not agencies that make the mainstream news every day.

    For most of the motoring public who have no interest in learning about such things, or have reason to run afoul of them, it might be pretty surprising the first time they hear about some of them, though. (It certainly was to me when I first entered LE work and started to hear about them.)

    It's amazing the number of agencies that usually exist at all levels of fed, state & local governments which employ people in armed/enforcement positions, and/or have powers of arrest to one extent or another.



    That pic is perfect. ;)

    Made me chuckle.

    For everyone eagerly jumping on this "revelation", I suppose we could try to get confirmation by running down to the local newsstand or supermarket checkout line and looking through the "hot sheets" on the racks, right? (In MIB fashion, of course) :tongueout:

    Retired, but not expired.
    There are people on Glocktalk that claim they shoot a thousand rounds a week (and some probably do). People should want LEOs shooting more, not less. :supergrin:
