      Good for business, good for them, and good for us. Never can have enough ammo, plus stock overruns make for good deals on ammo purchases.

      AND? i fail to see the story here? ammo is a shelf stable consumable, so it would appear that a government agency that uses ammo has purchased ammo.

      is it the amount of ammo purchased that has created a "BUZZ" here? if so, how much ammo does the ICE and DHS use annually for training? how long do they store it before they rotate it out ? how much do they normally buy per contract? how much ammo do other agencies buy? is the amount out of line with other agencies purchases ?

      if you are going to be asking the first question , the rest should follow too i think....

      and why does any of this matter anyway? how many uniforms did they buy, guns, vehicles, staplers?

      how many vests?

      how much gas?

      office chairs?
