DHS buys 450 MILLION rounds of .40 JHP ammunition

The Department of Homeland Security has placed a rather large order for some 450 million .40 JHP while simultaneously placing orders for quantities of rifle rounds.

We’re not talking range practice ammo either, the .40 is “barrier” penetrating hollow point ammunition according to the press release.

This is alarming because the DHS is NOT the military fighting a war overseas where you would expect massive amounts of ammunition.

The Department of Homeland Security is right here at home.

450 million!

DHS has just over 200,000 employees. Not all of them carry guns, but even at 200,000 it comes out to more than 2200 rounds per employee, and that’s just the .40 caliber.
