Would you sell your ammo to your local police force? More importantly, would DHS give their stockpile to local police departments?

The answer is in your question. Let DHS give them their ammo.

If would really depend on the department’s history as to dealing with the public.

They can’t have mine, I’m pretty damned sure they wouldn’t help me if I was out!

They carry .40cal Glocks around here; I hate that round, and of my 7 calibers and 360k rounds and 1 ga, don’t have it. SOL, guys; sorry.

I’ve got half a box of corrosively primed .32-20 I’d chip in.

I've loaned one my pig gun, but he had to provide his own 7.62x39.

They knew about the grab and should have prepared. Send a check to Big sis and demand some ammo! She seems to be the new supplier!

Yep, that's who's causing the shortage.

I am not parting with my ammo unless the bullets are headed down range at a target. If it is at a target range I will police my casings also.

There was once a time when it would be perfectly natural for citizens to help them out. These days, they’d better just ask their stormtrooper buddies.

We're especially short of the kind of hollow points that police across the U.S. use for target practice!

Can’t they just get a 3D file and then print some? :-)

No, I’d be suspicious they were trying to deplete my supply in order to make it easier for them to confiscate my guns later. It isn’t as if government hasn’t been known to do that. If police are out of ammo, me and my loved ones will take care of my own security, thank you very much.

On second thought, I will be willing to send them a box of pop tarts. They can bite them into whatever caliber they wish.

I’d loan em some, but I don’t think they need any .41rf or .577/450 ammo.
