The current update of April 21st indicates that the agencies included to receive portions of this supply now includes all of those under the DHS. The quantities are spread out over a five year period. They are seeking 3 million 12 gauge slugs per year and 2 million 12 gauge buckshot rounds.
The pre-solicitation was originally issued on September 18th of 2013, and has recently modified to the current levels and type on 4/21.
Clicking on the “changed” link at the bizops.gov website enables viewing of the changes since the original solicitation.
If there were an active police effort going on at the border, this would still be a large order. But there isn’t, the DHS and Border Patrol adopted a “runaway” policy and has very restrictive rules of engagement.
One has to wonder, if not at the border, against foreigners invading this country, where else might this ammunition be used?.
