freedomoutpost.com ^ | 29 Mar 2013 | Tim Brown

Posted on 04/02/2013 5:22:14 PM PDT by PilotDave

According to the solicitation (HSFLAR-13-Q-00019), DHS is ordering ammunition in .45 long Colts, .45 ACP, .22LR, 30-30, 12 gauge shotgun shells, 410 gauge shotgun shells, .357, and 7.69x39mm. That’s quite a spread for DHS.

HAHA, not in Russia or Balkan states. We are being flooded with steel casings in many calibers. Hey, if ya pull the trigger and they go bang, why not.

Anyone who has ever posted a pro 2A pic on Facebook has marked themselves. Every political comment tracked and yes every link you follow from google will tell them what you read. Facebook has done what no FBI could have ever done. The technology required to keep a dossier on everyone was invented by private industry and is now used by the government.

They are fishing by creating FUD and at the same time taking ammunition away from Americans and driving up prices.

Absolutely. It’s 9x18 9mm ammo, and is all over, but pricey.

It certainly would be costly, if the vendor/manufacturer followed through with it.

I would be interested in knowing what .45 Colt ammo they are purchasing.

The so called cowboy load is relatively mild. Shooting it is easier than shooting .38’s.

But if you go to Cor-Bon or Buffalo Bore for their high powered loads, you get ammo that will stop a bear or moose.

What gr. and FPS they are purchasing will tell you a lot.

There can now be no doubt that they are contracting for ammo that they have no intent of actually purchasing, much less using.

The only logical explanation for this is that they are planning an assault on the American people, and since they can't get their guns, they'll just make sure they have no ammo for those guns.

The way it will go down is this; they will defund the EBT cards in one big city at a time. As soon as a first of the month comes around with no money, Eric Holders people will riot. As soon as the riots start the martial law starts. Once they have one city emptied, they will start on the next.

You'll know it's all going down when Ubama hits that Internet "off" switch.

Congress needs a full scale formal investigation to determine why DHS is purchasing all the ammunition.

What enemy is DHS preparing to war against?

Could it be the American people?

I’d also like to know exactly what they are doing with it. Could they be destroying it?

I wish they would do that with the illegal drugs across America. Great way to clean up the country.

Your warehouse picture may be a closer analogy than some might think.

Consider that not all ammo is US made.

Consider that a great deal of it is imported.

Consider that the ammo to be imported is in containers on docks.

Consider who controls the docks.

.22-250 is pretty popular around here for varmint hunting.Folks shoot woodchucks out to 400 yards or so with that caliber.

Remember the “Civilian National Security Force”? It’s for them.

Even our leviathan government will have a hard time arming 25 million irregulars of the Obama Revolutionary Youth Brigades without confiscating a lot of civilian weapons. Hopefully most of them will be out of ammo by the time they succeed.

They’re just piddling quantities. They could almost hit the local Wal-Mart for this stuff. Unless they’re setting a precedent for these calibers, with larger, more disruptive amounts to come.

got three Russian Makarov automatics a few years back. They are packed in a box somewhere... not sure what type ammo they take. I wonder if I could get ammo for them? Bought them because they seemed really cheap at 75$ each. Had two clips that came along with each. 9x18 Makarov cartridge. It is a little smaller case than the 9mm Parabellum/Luger and a little larger than the .380 ACP. I am currently making some 9x18 Mak cases by trimming down 9mm Para cases. I cast my own slugs with a Lee 95 gr mould. I really like my East German Makarov.

45 Long Colt? Yes, it is very suspicious because around 1895 the military quit using the SA Army Colt as did many of the law enforcement agencies.

Actually that’s for SKS rifles.

What would they need ammo for SKS rifles???

Unless it’s being shipped somewhere overseas. . . .

My guess is that DHS is going to use the odd caliber ammo for show and tell. Most of the city boys that are recruited into DHS wouldn’t know a grenade from a 50 caliber round. Probably going to need to show the dummies that when they raid the civilians, leave the 22 LR and take the 45 caliber, etc.

Re your #72 - I think you are on to it; Obama isn’t obsessed with universal “gun control”; it’s going to be “Gun redistribution” - from working class English speaking Judeo-Christian Americans to gang bangers, Mexican drug thugs and Muslim Hadjis who will gladly enforce the regime’s tyranny and looting of what’s left of America while accomplishing their “population reduction” agenda.

I predict that when the SHTF the prisons will be emptied and many of the inmates armed, recruited into the “Domestic Security Force” and sent out to terrorize the targeted populations. Don’t count on any mercy from those fellows.

Gun control, much like the genocide to follow, will be quite selective according to race, religion, and political ideology.

I’m hearing that even .22 ammo is getting hard to find, and someone seems to show up to gobble up any shipments that do arrive in stores as soon as it is received.

I suspect that government shills are patrolling all the gun shows and retail outlets with rolls of freshly printed money to buy up anything that appears before us peasants can get any of it.

If you reload, I hope you’ve got a good supply of components, as even that is getting scarce. I expect reloading to be regulated or banned before much longer.

What would happen if American Citizens got their hands on such a stash

What do you think Marxists will be guarding, their own lives or warehouses of ammo?

The world is awash in civil wars in last few years. In each one of them government stocks of arms and ammo are raided by the rebels. This happens either because the government troops cannot be everywhere at the same time, or because the government soldiers are not that interested in dying for a dictator. In the end all this ammo is used against the government, and the government falls.

There is yet another interesting fact. In all those civil wars rebels have foreign support and are supplied with money and weapons and ammo. If a civil war happens in the USA, what countries will be on the side of the citizens? (This can be figured out by asking what countries will be on the side of the government.)

The 7.62 X 39mm is the standard Soviet / Warsaw pact small arms round for both the Siminov Carbine (SKS - tactically obsolete) and the AK-47 and most of it’s variations.

The Czech VZ-58 which looks a lot like an AK but is designed differently also chambers the 7.62X39.

It’s standard for the Chicoms, Norks, Cubans, most of the Islamic regimes and terrorist organizations, as well as various 3rd world banana republics.

Most of the people in the World who want to shoot Americans would use 7.62 X 39mm to shoot us with.

Since the Dept. on InJustice issued all of those AKs to the Mexican drug cartels, perhaps they want to refresh their ammo supplies. Wouldn’t be surprised if they intend to invite them to come up North to help with the reconquestadore when the regime decides that it’s time to crush those annoying “bitter clingers” who insist on resisting the NWO.

I have a so called Spruce Gun. It is a Model 1894 Winchester in .30 WCF, AKA .30-30. It is one of 1,800 commercially produced rifles bought by the Fed Gov’t. to protect the Northwest forests during WWI so there would be spruce wood available for aircraft manufacture.

A relative bought it after the war when they were sold as surplus, so I don’t think the Feds have any need for ammo for guns they no longer have.
