Actually knowing the requirements, this does make sense but the 750 million rounds being sought by the DHS is either about 75,000 rds per agent or there are more agents there then we know of.
600-rounds per shooter doesn’t sound like all that many. I can burn through half of that in a couple of hours at the range.
The real issue is that people didn’t know the SSA had shooters.
Oh, ok... they have too d*mn many “agents” then.
And they are using premium duty ammo in training? I think not. How hard do the armed social security workers train? Qualifying annually I understand, but are they going through some other kind of training? The whole thing (all the other massive ammo purchases) and NOAA uparming require a better explanation.
Why do they need hollow point ammunition to shoot at targets?
It’s not the quantity of ammo that bothers me, it’s the quality of the ammo.
You don’t need premium grade ammo for training.
In any event, this is also typical government waste of money.
I train/practice with cheap .45 230 gr. ball ammo and I carry high-dollar stop-em-in-their-tracks ammo.
The feds should do the same.
Maybe the “Green” government can buy some 22 shorts too instead of always using full calibre ammo.
Just why do Social Security “agents” need to be armed? I would assume they are all just bureaucrats and not law enforcement officers so why have them armed? If there is some crime or suspected crime wouldn’t they be working with the FBI or even local police? This is scary.
We all know this is business as usual....
There is no real change, except that change is constant.....
These images you are fixating on are merely projections, an emotional response.....like love, no more or less significant than the result of ingesting a large amount of chocolate......
You see these images and ask why........
Your question should be, Why do I care.....
This is why you will either toe the line Misster Anderson, or you will be absorbed.....
“......my name is Neo!.....”
Actually, the South Park officer makes more sense and is easier to portray without resorting to odd phonetic consstructions.........
Loading up, they know we will be real mad once they steal the election in November.
They sound like a bunch of dead-eyes to me..
If ya need to practice that often when you’re dealing with older folks..
maybe ya need to lead ‘em a little less..
Older folk ain’t that fast.. unless they’re going for their weapon.
Attempt to run up the price of ammo before the election so that the “peasants” cannot afford any?
“589 Bullets Per Agent Is Normal”
Where? In Afghanistan? Detroit? Chicago?
The military always gets nickled and dimed on ammo, but SSA, DHS, and other government agencies get more ammo than they need?
