he was told he'd have to wait months

The chief should go to gunbroker.com and buy some ammo. All he has to do is type in 40 ammo and he will see ammo up for bids.

500 rounds of Federal 40 S&W 180 gr. fmj ammo still has about 40 minutes to go in the biding. It should go for about 50 to 60 cents per round when all is said and done.

It is capitalism at work. For $500 to $600 he will have his 1,000 rounds by the end of next week.

"he was told he'd have to wait months"

Since Adam Lanza, I've probably bought at least 1000 rounds of ammo (various calibers, but not .40) without resorting to Gunbroker and without overpaying. (.40 S&W was offered online for as little as .36/round yesterday). Ammo is available with a little bit of effort -- but if he needs to have his small purchase go through the normal gov't bidding process, and isn't finding anyone willing to bother to put in the time and effort to make a $20 profit at the moment -- I'm not surprised.
