I just looked it up on wiki - 200,000. Which, I'll admit, made me blink.
But only a small fraction of them (please God) are armed.
Even still, it's only one agency of the feds, and 200 million rounds for five years is still staggering to me. That's army-level BLOAT.
Yeah, but considering the talent pool they collect from, they need all the practice they can get. I’m no proponent of the feds but if you pack hardware as your job, burning through a hundred rounds a day to stay proficient, I don’t have a problem. It’s better than giving the money to some yahoo that’s been unemployed for years milking the system. I wish I could afford that practice luxury. But I’m just a working class stiff. We’re tight as a drum when it comes to money in my house. I’m sitting here watching grocery prices steadily rise but the media doen’t see inflation yet?? Baffling...
