Large-scale ammo purchases

Post by glock23 » Tue Aug 21, 2012 1:21 pm

Okay Tinfoil Hat Club members, anyone besides me concerned about the recent large scale ammo purchases by the Social Security Administration and NOAA? The more I read about this, the more concerned I become.

Interesting perspective on the Joint Special Operations Command I never considered - they are under direct command from the Administration and are not accountable to Congress. Read more here:http://www.zerohedge.com/contributed/20 ... gh-lethal-

Social security and NOAA are starting a new program for firing employees. :surp:

Nah, that's what Obamacare was created for. So the government can decide if the amount you pay in taxes is worth you living or dying.

Very true. But, what if you aren't dying fast enough... :shock:

Not really. They each have their respective LE divisions and they gotta issue them ammo. Business as usual.

I shot 40K rounds of 9x19 last year. No, I don't compete, and yes, that was my first year of shooting, and I've come to realize that about half of that ammo was "wasted" in that I did not truly benefit from good self-directed practice (as with many beginners, I thought that shooting was shooting, and that volume, to a certain degree, equated with progression). There was also quite a bit of "proving" of my defensive firearms/ammo mixed in there, too.

That said, this year, I'm still on-track to go through about half that. Maybe just a bit less, depending on my class/training schedule for the last quarter.

Considering that their "carry ammo" = "range ammo" and the number of threads like these in various firearms communities, where someone broke down the math and figured out just what kind of "ammo per shooter" numbers we're really looking at, no, I don't think that's excessive, at all.

They have never bought this amount of ammo ever before. Not even close. The fact that some of the agencies that are getting the ammo are getting it makes me nervous. I'm even nervous talking about it.

.gov understands what the coming inflation will do to ammo prices.

Just purchased another 2K rounds of 9x19. I'm likely going to go through at least 1.5K via a set of 1-day and 2-day training classes that will be coming up in October/November.

Also got another 10 30-round PMags, too - that'll bring my 30-round PMag total up to 23, along with one lonely green-follower USGI. Even if we see a high-capacity magazine ban for a few years, I think I'll still be OK to use them through a few years' worth of training classes. Don't worry, I've got a few Lancer L5AWMs set aside already as social mags. And it's time to stock-up on .223/5.56 for those planned classes, too. :)

I honestly don't think there's anything wrong with the amount of ammo the government is purchasing.

Government agencies arming the enforcement personal with military equpiment like 1.2 billion rounds of ammo, tactical weapons, combat gear and now 2,717 mine resistant ambush protected vehicles ordered in January and showing up across the nation should aleart the citizens. Is this the civil army that Obama said he needed to curb upcoming civil unrest? :?: I ask my congressman and was assured the arms build-up is normal. :ewink:

When Japan and Germany had an arms build-up we had WW II. History has it lessons, we only need to read and learn.
