That's an awful lot of practice ammo, Big Sis.

ATK Awarded Contract to Supply 450 Million Rounds of .40 Caliber Ammunition to the Department of Homeland Security

ATK has secured a major Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity deal to supply up to 450 million rounds of .40 caliber ammunition to the Department of Homeland Security.
The 1 year contract with four option years comes at a time when many Americans believe that DHS, along with certain aspects of the military, will soon turn their sights on the American people during some sort of martial law scenario.
“We are proud to extend our track record as the prime supplier of .40 caliber duty ammunition for DHS, ICE,” said Ron Johnson, the president of ATK’s Security and Sporting group,” reported a PR Newswire release.
The Department of Homeland Security has been extremely busy in the last few months.
Whether it be mastering their surveillance of social media, planning to build level 4 bio weapons labs in the middle of the country, defending Globalism, lying to Congress about their big brother policies, labeling people who believe in conspiracy theories as potential terrorists, or taking over cyber security, DHS seems to be actively working against the American people on every front.
Considering this, the fact that they are openly ordering millions more rounds of ammunition should at the very least give the American people pause.
As 2012 continues to move forward and the awakening of the sleeping giant that is the American people kicks into high gear, federal agencies seem hell bent to continue to gear up for a possible confrontation with the people of this once great country.

Yet they get all pissy if I stockpile more than a box or two for each of my firearms.

Guess that I better get a 40 cal weapon so that I can shoot all the ammo that I acquire when the bastards try to come get my little 22 (that's all the weapons that I have right now, really big sis, no shit, really)...

That would work out to a total of 2250 rounds per DHS employee. Much higher if you just count the personnel that carry weapons.

MadMarlin,

That is to account for all the misses them there oath breakers will incur.

Unklescott, you just said what I was going to. A buddy gave me a bag of what we thought was .45 brass, but it turned out to be .40.....oh the choices...

Dear DHS personnel,
Please note effective range of .40 weapons.
Compare to effective range of .30-06 weapon.
Done?
Good, now stay in your cubicles like good little bureaucrats.

Hi all,

Just to put a little different spin on this, because I have 1st hand information ;)

Most people in DHS can't hit the broad side of a barn from 5 feet away with their Sig Sauer P229 .40 cal sidearms. Sad very sad.

Worst I ever saw was out of 50 rounds, only 2 made it on the paper.

450 million rounds? Did they order enough for everybody to practice fora decade or are they up to something??? Who else uses .40s?
