WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Winchester Ammunition was recently awarded a contract by the Immigration, Customs and Enforcement (ICE) division of the Department of Homeland Security to supply a maximum of 200 million, 40 cal. rounds over the next five years.
The load selected for this contract is a 135-grain, hollow point designed for the office of Field Operations of Customs and Border Protection. It will fall under the Winchester Ranger line.
What in the wolrd does one organization, not military in scope, need with 40 million rounds of pistol ammunition every year for the next five years(that is over 3.33 million rounds every month)? Especially an organization that will NOT profile possible terrorists from outside the country but, will and does profile our own US combat veterans as probable urban terrorist against the sitting government

Or they are stock piling ammo to create a shortage, remember who's running the government now. Do you really think the current administration would be that proactive in firearms training when they are anti-gun to begin with? Do the math of how many agents work for Homeland Security and the amount of ammo per agent, that's alot of rounds per agent. Sounds like stock piling to me.

Why are they using 135 Grain Hollowpoints? The 165 Grain Ranger Hollowpoint is better.

Stockpiling what for? No I think they are getting ready to arm Obama's "volunteer Youth groups and send them against the people when he declares Martial Law just before he turns the nation over to the One World Order dictators disquised in the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) and the American Union (AU the counterpart to the EU) and any other organization he can find that will enslave the people of the Nation he HATES with all his satanic heart. He has altready said and indicates daily that he requires total submission to his whims and fancies. Now he is determined to force the issue with weapons against the people just like has happened before in this country under DEMONacrats on smaller scales.

Anybody taking bets on whether Hussein gets re-elected?

LeeW At the rate he is going in turning this nation into another, the last of the, "sheep herds" for the One World Order, there won't be any elections in 2012. At least no true elections without "brown shirts" manning the polls. as to the 135grn instead of the 165, the smaller round travels faster at less distance and his minnions won't need stopping power at less than 15 feet.
