Of course...you’re correct...forgot that ‘little’ detail.
Hmm.....do you suppose that could be the billion-plus rounds of ammo these innocuous agencies have bought recently for “proficiency training?”
That was the first thing I thought after reading this.
Read the above carefully, please. ATK was awarded a contract by DHS for (UP TO A MAXIMUM) of 450M rounds of .40 caliber ammunition "OVER 5 YEARS". If you do the math, that's roughly 90M rounds/yr IF the options are exercised. If a figure of 30% of DHS are "carrying" is reasonable, then 30% of 208,000 (total DHS staff) is 62,400 that are carrying. That means 1,442 rounds/yr per person, or about 120 rounds per month.
Is this less scary? Actually, not in my books, but still, not as scary as a single delivery of "a billion" rounds.
