Never forget this.

Can't say I really blame them. They probably got a call that went something like, “Nice ammo plant you have there, be a shame if it was shut down for a looonnngg, comprehensive safety review, were we will be sure to find enough to keep it shut down permanently if you don't play ball.

I wonder just how much has been delivered? The purchase order was for billyuns and billyuns of rounds, but just how many are in the warehouses now?

Which isn't a very sound strategy since DHS has been reducing its ammo purchases for each of the last three years.

If you run a factory; and you get an order for 1 Gazillion rounds; what would you do?

Keep making ammo that “might sell” or do you fulfill the order you have on the books?

It’s called Capitalism, you make the business decisions today that keep you in business tomorrow. I will buy ammo tomorrow, and the day after, and the day after that....

They never said, implied or through action gave any clue that they will not be manufacturing ammo in the future.

I am thinking of having a yard sale. The one item I think will sell well is .22LR Ammo. I think I will add a smaller sign to the large one saying .22LR anno. $2.50 box of 50 Remington High speed.

Any thoughts? should I maybe charge more?

Also

Winchester .22 Magnum $10.00 box of 50?

DHS is LYING!!

If they were trying to “save money” they would NOT be buying ONLY JHP rounds!!!

Which manufacturers, exactly? Is there a list of the winning bidders for each of the discussed contracts?

She does have a point. Buying ammo in bulk does lower the per round cost. Trust me on this.

This has to be a lie. When has the government tried to save money?

I am awaiting the “90% off,” “government surplus” sale held by the next administration.
