Except it's an RFI, not an RFQ. Also, the previous contract DHS awarded is an IDIQ with CLINs ranging from .40 S&W to .308 over a 5 year POP.

As fun as conspiracy theories are, this one ain't.

Yes, you are right. I stand corrected. Waiting for the other shoe to drop. Brass, powder, primers and projectiles leaves a lot supply line targets. I understand Eric Holder was just placed in charge of brass importation in to the US. I think it is going to get a lot worse before it ever gets close to getting better. Ammo is becoming more of an investment than a consumable.

Default Now Look Who's Whining at ERIC & Co.!

From BBC news 05/13/2013:

The Associated Press has described the US government's secret seizure of its journalists' telephone records as a "massive and unprecedented intrusion". ...

they way this IRS thing is unfolding along with the unprecedented seizure of associated press phone records sure makes what would otherwise seem conspiracy like a lot more believable, and believable that it is a plan or being done with intent.

Always thought the book/movie 1984 was really far fetched - but not anymore.

Anyone who can't see that there is political conspiracy afoot, well then, what exactly will it take to convince the majority that we and our country is in trouble
That might make sense if they also banned ammo imports. But as you can see bellow that's not the case so the hole ammo conspiracy thing is rubbish in my opinion. As for the ammo panic buying it was more to do with the ammo shortages than some government conspiracy.


Quote:
The American ammo shortage has been a boon for foreign ammo makers as ammunition imports into the U.S. doubled during the first months of 2013.

According to data from the Commerce Department and the International Trade Commission, imports of ammo cartridges as well as shotguns have just about doubled during the first two months of 2013

Obviously you could be added to the list of those who aren't convinced. Noted. Thank you for sharing your opinion.

Something is definitely afoul. I get the same feeling a fowl at a livestock gets upon hearing the sharpening of knives. I'm afraid a scent of blood is detected in the wind.

The commie gov't is getting desperate to complete their agenda before 2017, and have run into some serious setbacks lately. But this guy in the article is a snake-oil salesman. He'll run his mouth trying to scare everybody into thinking that all is lost, then he'll be happy to sell us all his "magic" solution. But so far as ammo is concerned, it is more justifiable now than ever before to "roll your own". You can save a bundle of money if you are willing to invest some of your grabassing time in reloading.
