Yeah, I'm stockpiling too, assholes.


Following controversy over its purchase of around 1.2 billion bullets in the last six months alone, the Department of Homeland Security has put out a new solicitation for over 200 million more rounds of ammunition, some of which are designated to be used by snipers.
A series of new solicitations posted on the FedBizOpps website show that the DHS is looking to purchase 200 million rounds of .223 rifle ammunition over the next four years, as well as 176,000 rounds of .308 caliber 168 grain hollow point boat tail (HPBT) rounds in addition to 25,000 rounds of blank .308 caliber bullets.
As James Smith over at the Prepper Podcast website highlights, “It is the type of ammunition and not necessarily the quantity that is troubling.”

My local Wally suddenly stopped carrying Federal .223 bulk 100 packs. When I asked about it it was we don't know why.
I know the sporting goods clerk, she's an old school rough cut gal and wouldn't bullshit me.

We just have to make every shot count...

Obungler is getting ready for his 2nd term as president just in case Romney gets more Electorial College Votes than he does.

I've been stockpiling since ketchup boy Kerry ran against Bush in '04. If it wasn't for that tragic boating accident where I lost it all in the Pacific Ocean last month I'd have a comparable amount to what these assholes are ordering...

Let us not deceive ourselves, sir. These are the implements of war and subjugation; the last arguments to which tyrants resort. I ask gentlemen, sir, what means this massive acquisition of ammunition, if its purpose be not to force us to submission? Can gentlemen assign any other possible motive for it? Has America any enemy, within these her own borders, to call for all this accumulation of guns and ammunition? No, sir, she has none. They are meant for us: they can be meant for no other.

Huh? Oh, sorry...I got all weird and thought I was some guy named Henry for a second. Carry on.

Stock up and remember, you can restock off the dead bodies of the enemy.

Damn CharlieDelta, sorry to hear that. Likewise, I had a rollover accident where my stash went down the mountain, otherwise I'd have enough 7.62x39 HP to supply a small Latin American country.
